There is always pressure within the synthesizer market to innovate and bring new and powerful music creation tools to the table so that producers and musicians can create the next 'big sound'.

Yamaha are one company that remain world leaders when it comes to such technology and the Montage 8 Synthesizer is here to prove it. Featuring a new motion control synth engine, 2 acclaimed sound sources, a staggering amount of performance ready sounds and sequencer capability, the Montage series synths will take your production power to new heights.

Expression and input

This version of the Montage boasts a fully weighted, 88-note balanced hammer action keyboard complete with initial and aftertouch response to give you exceptional dynamic control and voice manipulation. The motion control synth engine will take your input and translate it to unify and control two iconic Sound Engines, the AWM2 high-quality waveform and subtractive synth, and FM-X modern pure Frequency Modulation synth engines.

This procedure may sound complicated but thanks to the intuitive control surface and powerful 7 inch TFT Color Wide VGA LCD touch screen, you will experience a workflow that is clean and simple so that you can focus purely on the music. Such controls as the Super Knob allow you to warp sounds out of this dimension whilst 8 assignable rotary encoders let you adjust specific elements of the sound.

Motion sequencing

The Montage 8 is capable of 16-part multi-timbral functionality so that you can create tracks that would make a professional engineer blush. Motion sequencing allows you to completely customise control sequences that can be assigned to virtually any synthesizer parameter and provide incredible creative new ways of programming sound with ease.

Any of the 1,900 performance ready sounds can be manipulated and enhanced with the vast array of built in digital effects ranging from reverb, delay, chorus through to Vinyl Break or Bit Crusher to get some cutting edge EDM sound at the touch of a button.

Versatile workflow

The Montage 8 can lend itself just as well to liver performers as it can writers and producers. The vast amount of connectivity means it can easily fit into any workflow to work alongside computers and MIDI/USB musical equipment from any era.

The Yamaha Montage 8 Synthesizer is arguably the most powerful synthesizer available today and is guaranteed to blow the lid off your production and performance capability, and raises the bar when it comes to synthesizer powerhouses.
