    Product Description

    The Montage 6 from Yamaha sets a new milestone for synthesizers with sophisticated dynamic control, massive sound creation and streamlined workflow all combined in a powerful keyboard designed to inspire your creativity. This is truly the new era in synths from the company that brought you the industry-changing DX and the hugely popular Motif. If you liked the DX and Motif, get ready to love Montage.

    Motion Control Synthesis Engine
    Motion Control Synthesis Engine unifies and controls two iconic Sound Engines: AWM2 (high-quality waveform and subtractive synthesis) and FM-X (modern, pure Frequency Modulation synthesis.) These two engines can be freely zoned or layered across eight parts in a single MONTAGE Performance.

    Interact with MONTAGE Performances using Motion Control: a highly programmable control matrix for creating deep, dynamic and incredibly expressive sound. With Motion Control, you can create new sounds not possible on previous hardware synthesizers.

    Sophisticated Dynamic Control
    Music is expression. MONTAGE adds a new level of expression with the Motion Control Synthesis Engine. This engine allows a variety of methods to interact with and channel your creativity into finding your own unique sound.

    Super Knob
    Create dynamic sound changes from radical to sublime with the Super Knob. The Super Knob can control multiple parameters simultaneously resulting in anything you can imagine.

    For example: change your listening position from right in front of an instrument to in the back seat of a concert hall. Or radically change the character of a Performance from atmospheric and mellow to rhythmic and edgy.

    The Super Knob can even be assigned to a second FC7 foot controller making it easy to manipulate the sound when playing with both hands.

    Motion SEQ
    Motion Sequences are tempo-synchronized, completely customizable control sequences that can be assigned to virtually any synthesizer parameter and provide incredible creative new ways of programming sound.

    Motion Sequences also have dedicated controls on the front panel making it easy to manipulate and change in real-time, providing incredible interactivity and expression.

    Envelope Follower
    The Envelope Follower converts audio into a control source for control of virtually any synthesizer parameter. For example, a drum loop could drive effects parameters for a cool rhythms or a vocal recording could control multiple parameters for a talking synthesizer. The audio can even be a live source through the A/D input.

    Powered by proprietary Yamaha technology for data compression and sound playback, AWM2 allows tremendous data compression without sound quality loss for unparalleled, realistic sound reproduction.

    An amazingly sophisticated pure synthesizer engine capable of producing classic ‘80s or cutting-edge EDM sound with incredible dynamic range, power and fidelity. MONTAGE features an 8-operator FM architecture and 128-note polyphony, allowing for a massive array of sound design options.

    Every instrument needs great content to inspire your creativity. MONTAGE features a huge range of incredible sounds like a brand-new Yamaha CFX Premium Grand Piano, detailed new strings and woodwinds and select content from the DX and TX family, all modernized to take advantage of the Motion Control Synthesis Engine.

    From high definition reverbs to incredibly detailed Virtual Circuit Modeling (VCM) effects, MONTAGE is loaded with DSP innovation, power and, most importantly, sound quality. Use effects like Beat Repeat, Vinyl Break or Bit Crusher to get a modern EDM sound. You can even add a compressor with sidechain for a modern ‘ducking’ effect. Or go retro with vintage effects like Analog Delay, VCM Phaser or a variety of Amp Simulators. Piano players will appreciate piano-focused effects like Damper Resonance for a super-realistic piano experience and the HD reverbs that let you put yourself in any performance space.

    Pure Analog Circuit
    MONTAGE features professional balanced outputs with ‘Pure Analog Circuit’ (PAC). PAC improves the quality of signal after being converted to analog from digital for clear harmonic reproduction and even frequency response. The result is an output capable of reproducing MONTAGE’s internal content expressively with power and clarity.

    USB Audio/MIDI Connection
    Connect MONTAGE to your computer with a single USB cable and capture every nuance of your creativity into your DAW. MONTAGE’s powerful USB driver can send 16 and receive 3 channels of STEREO 24 bit/44.1 kHz digital audio to/from your computer or iOS device (MONTAGE is class compliant, no driver needed!), no other hardware required!

    SSS (Seamless Sound Switching)
    Seamless Sound Switching (SSS) lets you change performances seamlessly without any cut-off in envelope or effects. This is perfect for live performances where you end one song and start another without stopping.

    A/D Input
    The A/D input processes external audio sources with your instrument’s DSP. Use mics, guitars or any line source as an input and process with the internal effects. You can even use these sources with the Envelope Follower or Sidechain for a truly unique sound.

    Cubase AI bundle
    MONTAGE is bundled with Cubase AI, Steinberg's professional music production application that offers integrated recording and editing.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    I never had a motif but I did try a MOXF8 for a month so here are my thoughts. I was using a Triton LE as a midi controller and VST's. My Triton is no longer with us so I needed to move on. I got the MOXF but I just couldn't get into it. The menu and so many button pressing was a turn off. I just didn't take the time needed with it and I tried to use it as an audio interface and it sounds so low and thin. I took it back. Then I thought about NI Komplete S 88 and a new audio interface but soooo much money with no sounds. So I tried the Montage and the Kronos and the Kronos menu gave me an instant headache. It was like saga genesis or Nintendo DS with a little pen. The Montage was the winner. It's like a VST being controlled by an IPad!! And the audio interface is the best I've ever used. Now I use the sounds in the montage more than my VST's and it saves on processing power. I still think it's over priced by $600 so get a used one
