Yamaha Montage-8 Synthesizer
One of the main features that sets the MONTAGE-8 apart from the rest of the range is the Hammer-Action Keyboard. This keyset is similar to a weighted-key keybed but incorporates the authentic feel of acoustic pianos. The MONTAGE-8 emulates the feel of the hammer hitting the strings and producing the sound you hear, This gives you a natural feel when playing, with the keys responding to your touch like an acoustic piano. These authentic hammer-action keys are ideal for piano players who are looking to expand their playing style or for general use with the keys responding naturally like an acoustic piano.
7-inch TFT colour touch screen
One of the most unique features of the MONTAGE is the 7'' colour wide-VGA touchscreen that displays all the information about your voices, parameters and controls in a handy touchable screen. The touch screen feature makes it easier for you navigate between different settings and parameters, visually displaying all the controls so you can touch and affect them as you please.
Live set and performance modes
Yamaha have incorporated two new modes into the MONTAGE synth for making live performance and organising sounds easier than ever before. The 'Live Set Organiser' gives you the ability to arrange your sounds and controls in a uniformed fashion so you can easily recall them later and in the order you set them in. This is ideal for live performances as it saves a lot of time switching between parameters, letting you streamline your performance and seamlessly switch between sounds and controls at the touch of a button.
The 'Performance Mode' gives you optimal control over your voices and sounds allowing you to combine, split or layer multiple voices to make a more complex and persoanlised sound. This gives you maximum flexibility when it comes to performances and arranging sounds as it gives you the option to sculpt your tones. You can also 'Split' sounds, so you can play one sound on the bottom half of the scale and another at the top half, allowing you to combine sounds to create a duet like effect.
Motion control synthesis engine
The two sound engines incorporated into the MONTAGE are AWM2 (Advanced Wave Memory) and FM-X. The AWM2 Engine was found previously in the Motif collection and is a powerful PCM based sound engine that features 128-note polyphony. This sound engine has been integrated to deliver the exceptional tones and sounds found as presets, along with generating and sculpting your own sounds. With the integrated flash memory of 1.7GB you can create, sculpt and combine your own tones and save them as presets to be instantly recalled at a later time.
The FM-X sound engine works in conjunction with the AWM2 to deliver the premium quality sounds and response that the MONTAGE is known for. These two engines can be freely zoned or layered across all parts in a Multi-Part Montage Performance. These powerful and expansive sound engines are what drive the Yamaha MONTAGE's rich and articulate sounds.
Envelope follower - convert audio into a module source
This brand new intuitive feature has been incorporated to deliver more expansive playing possibilities when it comes to audio. An envelope follower allows you to convert external audio into a module source, with a variety of DSP effects allowing you to mould your sound.
