The Yamaha Montage 8 synth with 88 fully weighted hammer action keys is the most powerful synth from Yamaha to date, in comparison the montage synths offers double the amount of fx and polyphony on offer in the popular motif synth.
This is all thanks to the 2 unique sound engines inbuilt that can be utilized separately or together to create some truly massive soundscapes. Following the tradition of the DX and Motif series keyboards, but taking things even further, this is Yamaha's most powerful synthesizer to date with tons of great sounds and features, and ideal for the professional performers and producers.
The Montage may look intimating to use but Yamaha have spent a long time creating something that is flexible and user friendly thanks to the onboard computer screen and dynamically controlled user interface.
The Yamaha Montage combines 2 high end sound engines allowing you to layer up soundscapes like never before.
Welcome to the new era in Synthesizers from the company that brought you the industry-changing DX and the hugely popular MOTIF. Building on the legacy of these two iconic keyboards, the Yamaha MONTAGE sets the next milestone for Synthesizers with sophisticated dynamic control, massive sound creation and streamlined workflow all combined in a powerful keyboard designed to inspire your creativity. If you liked the DX and Motif, get ready to love Montage!
Montage Compatibility with the MOTIF XF
In terms of sounds, the MONTAGE is fully compatible with the Yamaha MOTIF XF synthesizer. In fact, the MONTAGE comes with all of the MOTIF XF’s 1,353 voices, 3,977 waveforms, and 7,881 arpeggio patterns. Furthermore, voices saved in the MOTIF XF can be imported directly into the MONTAGE. Likewise, patch libraries for the MOTIF XF, including third-party patch libraries, can be loaded into the MONTAGE and played.
MONTAGE raises the bar and will equip songwriters, composers, keyboardists, sound designers, synth geeks, EDM producers and hire companies with an instrument packed with inspiring sounds, sophisticated dynamic control and streamlined workflow. The Motion Control Synthesis Engine unifies and controls two iconic Sound Engines: AWM2 (high-quality waveform and synthesis) and FM-X (modern, pure Frequency Modulation synthesis.) These two engines can be freely zoned or layered across all parts in a Multi-Part Montage Performance.
