The Yamaha Montage 7 is a 76-key workstation synthesizer that combines elements of the DX- and the Motif-series keyboards. Employing Motion-Control Synthesis, the Montage combines two sound engines: the AWM2 (synthesis- and sample-based sounds) and FM-X (Frequency-Modulation synthesis.)
Powered by proprietary Yamaha data compression and playback technology, the AWM2 engine provides realistic sound reproduction and features nearly 10 times the waveform capacity of the Motif XF. This means that the Montage allows for far more samples per instrument than the XF, and thus a far more nuanced sound. The FMâ¿�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 8â¿�operator FM architecture and 128â¿�note polyphony, allowing for a massive array of sound-design options.
The Montage features 16-part multi-timbral 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.
Other notable features include a large color touchscreen, a "Super Knob" control that can control multiple parameters simultaneously, dual insert FX for all 16 parts, powerful pattern sequencer, and an arpeggiator that allows up to 8 arpeggio parts at once
