The Yamaha Montage features a new Motion Control Synthesis Engine, that combines the AWM2 and FM-X Synthesis tone generators. Building on the success of the Motif, the Montage is even more powerful, with a wide range of sounds from 80s classics to truly cutting edge tone. The Montage comes in 61 key and 76 key versions with a synth style action, or the option of a full 88 note fully weighted keybed.
FM-X Tone Generator:
FM-X has its roots in the legendary DX-7 which is arguably the most powerful FM Synthesis engine of all time. You can find all those classic 80s sounds if you like, but the New FM-X engine has so much more power and functionality that you can take your FM synthesis to a whole new dimension of tone.
The AWM2 generator has had many years of development by Yamaha to get realistic representation of sounds. Montage offers a 128-fold polyphony with 10 times the waveform capacity of the Motif XF. As a result the sounds are even more realistic and nuanced, for the most sensitive performance yet.
Redesigning Sound Manipulation:
Montage has completely redesigned its range of controls so that manipulating your sounds is as intuitive as possible.
The new Super Knob can control one or a number of parameters at once in a wide variety of ways. If you want to completely mess with your sound in one single action, then the Super Knob is a great way to create amazing effects on the fly in a live situation as well as when messing around with different tones in the studio.
Envelope follower can use a audio signal as the source for dynamic control of parameters. For example, you can use a drum loop to control it's own effects in sync with its own beat. Or vocals can be added to a synth sound to create a vocoder style sound.
Motion sequences can be programmed so that you can manipulate a parameter in time with the global tempo to create a dynamic and interesting sound.
Extensive Sound Library:
The Joy of having both the FM-X and AWM2 generators is that you get a massive range of high quality sounds as stock presets for you to take to live gigs and the studio; from the authentic rendition of real instruments to forward thinking synthesizer sounds.You get the sound of a Yamaha CFX premium grand piano for your go to piano sound, classic FM sounds from the Yamaha DX and TX series, as well as a wide range of keyboards orchestral instruments and more!
