An FM-X Exploration on MODX (not MONTAGE)

In looking to dive deeper into the joys of FM-X on my MODX I started into the article series on FM-X exploration here. However it seems I can't load the sample performance associated with the article - a .X7B file - into my MODX as it is for MONTAGE. Am I correct that this is not possible, either through the MODX/MONTAGE Connect utilities or a USB stick? If so, is there a way to get a MODX version of the performance, as it seems the article series is just as relevant to MODX as it is to MONTAGE?

Hi John,
Thanks for the question.
Try the articles especially made for the MODX... they are very close, but due to the front panel layout, (and file format difference) we prepared a special version just for MODX owners... the download is a MODX CONNECT file (.X8B) in each case:

Here are the other MODX specific tutorial articles:

Ah, even better - My bad for not spotting the MODX specific articles.

Thanks so much - Now starts my adventure into the foothills of FM!

Best regards,
