88KEYS Workstation Synthesizer
The Yamaha Montage 8 is a 88-key fully weighted hammer Action Keys workstation synthesizer that combines elements of the DX- and Motif-series keyboards.
Select and change parameters directly with the new color touch screen making settings much more easy.
AWM2 Sample- & Synthesis-Based Engine
Employing Motion-Control Synthesis, the Yamaha Montage 8 combines two sound engines: AWM2 (synthesis- and sample-based sounds) and FM-X (frequency modulation synthesis.)
The AWM2 engine provides realistic sound reproduction and features nearly 10 times the waveform capacity of the Motif XF. This means that Montage 8 allows for far more samples per instrument than the XF and thus a far more nuanced sound. The FM-X engine is capable of producing everything from classic ’80s FM-based basses and bells, to harsh, cutting-edge modern EDM-type sounds. It features 8 operator FM architecture and 128-note polyphony, allowing for a massive array of sound-design options.
FM-X Frequency Modulation-Based Engine
Yamaha Montage 8 features an 8-operator FM architecture and 128-note polyphony, allowing for a massive array of sound design options. it comes with an amazingly sophisticated pure synthesizer engine capable of producing classic ‘80s or cutting-edge EDM sound with incredible dynamic range, power and fidelity.
16-Part Multitimbral Operation
The Montage features 16-part multitimbral operation, but it comes with a full range of all-new sounds, like the Yamaha CFX Premium Grand Piano, detailed new strings and woodwinds, and select content from the DX and TX families, all modernized to take advantage of the Motion Control Synthesis Engine. Also, Montage is directly compatible with Motif ES/XS/XF voices, allowing you to transfer your favorite presets and get all of your sounds together in one place.
Super Knob for Multi-Parameters Tweaks
Yamaha montage 8 allows you to 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.
From high-definition reverbs, to detailed Virtual Circuit Modeling (VCM) effects, Montage 8 is loaded with DSP. 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 realistic piano experience and reverbs that let you put yourself in any performance space.
USB Audio/MIDI Connection
Connect Yamaha Montage 8 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 no other hardware required!
Motion Control Synthesis
Yamaha adds a new level of expression with the Motion Control Synthesis Engine in the montage 8. 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.
Motion Sequences and Scenes
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 & Side Chain FX
The Envelope Follower converts audio into a control source for control of virtually any synthesizer parameter i.e it turns A/D input into control signal for live situations.
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.
Pure Analog Circuit
Montage 8 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 8 internal content expressively with power and clarity.
Live Set Organiser
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.Note Capacity: Approx. 130,000 notes
Direct Control Assignment
montage 8 allows you assign 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 8 is bundled with Cubase AI, Steinberg’s professional music production application that offers integrated recording and editing.
In conclusion the yamaha montage 8 workstation is a board every musician would love to have because of its great features.
