Is there a way anyone knows of to improve the quality of sound coming from the keys above middle c you n my MX 88? I reset the factory settings and that didn’t seem to help. Maybe an equalizer?
I’m currently running my Roland KC-350 through my P-A system and that does help.

You could definitely try to EQ your sounds using the keyboard's own EQ settings.

The Roland KC-350 is not generally regarded as a great amp - might be part of the issue?

The main things to watch out for when playing in the higher register include:

  1. Avoid unnecessary pressure – keep the pressure on your lips as minimal as possible and avoid tensing your intercostal muscles.
  2. Avoid a smiley embouchure – try to keep the overall embouchure shape the same as it should really only need to be the aperture between the lips that needs to adjust.
  3. Keep the flow of air going – remember that wind=song and the only way to achieve a good sound is to ensure that there is good air flow to support that sound.

Dude...

Yamaha MX-88 is a keyboard, not a wind instrument.

Jerry >>> As Paul suggested, tweaking the on board EQ might help. Also check what on board FX are available. Maybe a bit of phase shift or delay might improve the sounds.
