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'' 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.
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.

AKG K52 Closed Back Studio Headphones
The K52 Closed Back Headphones feature 40mm drivers to produce a detailed output with extended frequency response to accurately reproduce every nuance of your music. The K52’s also feature a low-impedance design for compatibility with a broad range of playback devices such as professional studio gear and portable music players. Designed with both functionality and versatility in mind AKG’s engineers leveraged their extensive expertise to optimize every single component - delivering a great set of headphones without compromise.
Closed Back Headphone Design
Whether you’re practising or tracking, you need to focus and perform at your best. The K52 headphones’ closed-back design eliminates audio leakage and delivers sound to your ears only. This exceptional level of audio isolation is due to a new acoustic chamber, which sits between the ear cup and the hinge that connects to the headband. This innovative design gives you the freedom to move your head in any direction, without letting sound in or out. With the K52, you’ll enjoy a private workspace, no matter where you choose to create.
Robust and Durable Build Quality
AKG is known for making professional-grade gear that can stand the test of time, and the K52 headphones are no exception. AKG have put them through extreme testing and abuse to ensure they’ll handle anything you throw at them: The vigorous regimen of drop-tests simulates exaggerated falls. 80,000 cable bend cycles at both end points ensure the cable won’t break or underperform. And intensive driver testing - a prolonged series of 3W bursts each half second - means that the drivers won’t fail when you really need them.
