New Mind-blowing Yamaha Montage 8 for sale
MONTAGE – Music in Motion
Welcome to the new era from YAMAHA, the company that brought you the DX and Motif. MONTAGE sets the next milestone with sophisticated dynamic control, massive sound creation and streamlined workflow.
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.
Sophisticated Dynamic Control
Motion Control Synthesis
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.
Motion Control Synthesis Engine unifies and controls two iconic Sound Engines: AWM2 and FM-X. These two engines can be freely zoned or layered across eight parts in a single performance.
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 from atmospheric and mellow to rhythmic and edgy.
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.
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. MONTAGE features nearly 10 times the waveform capacity of the MOTIF XF, allowing more samples per instrument for incredibly realistic and nuanced sound.
The Industry Standard
MONTAGE features a huge range of beautiful sounds like a brand-new Yamaha CFX Premium Grand Piano, an incredible Bösendorfer Imperial Premium Grand, 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.
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.
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!
Select and change parameters directly with the new color touch screen.
Live Set lets you organize your Performances without copying, changing order or renaming. This is perfect for playing gigs or even creating your own organization scheme for Performances.
Eight Rotary Encoders and Faders with Stepladder LEDs indicate position, making it easy to see where your current mix position is.
Direct Control Assignment assigns controls at the touch of a button. Simply select a parameter, hit the Direct Control Assignment button and move the controller to control that parameter.
Cubase AI bundle
MONTAGE is bundled with Cubase AI, Steinberg’s professional music production application that offers integrated recording and editing.
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.
