First of all I would like to start a recording studio, and also resolve to play live. I am from El Salvador, and then in the used instruments market they are the two best options that I have found looking for the value for money. I understand that the MODX has everything incorporated, but I have doubts about its durability for being an economic series. The PC3 is older but I think it is better built and I can also use it as a controller.The Kurz naming of that series went like this:
PC3 = 76 keys (semi-weighted)
PC3X = 88 keys (hammer action)
PC361 = 61 keys (synth action)
The PC3 came out in 2008. It's still a very capable board, and can do some things that the more modern MODX cannot. It depends on what you need. To sum up some of the biggest differences, PC3 series has aftertouch, a more extensive MIDI implementation, more connectivity, sequencer, virtual analog synth and clonewheel engines. MODX has a modern touchscreen interface, FM synth engine, lighter travel weight, and a MUCH bigger wave set (5.67 gigabytes vs. 64 megabytes) plus the ability to load another gigabyte of sample data. What are you using it for? What kind of action do you prefer? Where are you located, is there a reason these are the only choices?
Thanks! I think i go for the PC3!, Another question.Yes, of the two then, I think I'd go for the PC3. It is stronger as a MIDI controller, and it has the kind of more tank-like build that may be preferable in a studio/backline environment where it can get a lot of use by people who don't always treat someone else's gear with the proper respect. The weakness in the areas you mentioned is that, while it's fine for live playing, it's heavier to carry around.
