Matt Vanacoro from AskAudio reviews the new Yamaha Montage synthesizer
It is NOT a workstation.Motif XF IS.Learn the difference!You are Misinforming people.
Montage is targeting a different group of musician AKA those who use a DAW and those who perform live. Which the vast majority are. You guys still using the onboard sequencer are the dinosaurs of the industry. I mean that in a nice way. Yamaha can’t survive catering to you guys any longer. It sucks I know, but you can always continue using your trusty Motif. It hasn’t diminished at all.
Montage is NOT a workstation. All complaints about it thus far have centered on the idea that it is. That says a lot about the product actually. It means the people who own one are happy with the product which is good for us all. 🙂
if this doesn’t have a sequencer then stuff it
Montage is not a workstation.
Great sound.but I hate there is no song-pattern sequencer and no sampling. all those EDM/Trance style performances are more horrible than sampling loops from records. its a cool concept, but it would be better with a on board song-pattern sequencer and some great acoustic funk drum kits.
arretes de parler ! du son
This new montage is a joke, shame on yamaha, 4 gran for 88 version jajaja na im good, people keep your motif and wait another 3 or whatever years for what ever yamaha is coming up with.
The Montage sounds are extremely thin, washy and distant like coming from a computer plugin.
There are absolutely no decent piano sounds, the best of them sounding like a toy piano heavily EQ’d to make it stand out. No wonder knob will compensate for that!
