TheMontage series is a new collection of synthesizers by Yamaha, who are renowned for their beautiful yet exceptionally sounding piano-based instruments.

Its Motion Control Synthesis engine, combining FM-X and AWM2 Tone Generators with controllers, allows completely new interaction with sounds and sound shaping, making MONTAGE one of the most flexible synthesizers of all time.

The Yamaha MONTAGE range consists of three synthesizers:

  • MONTAGE-6: 61 FSX Keyboard
  • MONTAGE-7: 76 FSX Keyboard
  • MONTAGE-8: 88 Balanced Hammer Keyboard

The Yamaha MONTAGE-6 a 61 key and MONTAGE-7 76 key synthesizers both feature a 7'' colour Wide-VGA touchscreen, 128-note polyphony , FM-X Tone generator and Motion Control Synthesis.

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.

The Yamaha MONTAGE-8 Synthesizer is a 88 key synthesizer featuring a 7'' colour Wide-VGA touchscreen, 128-note polyphony, Motion Control Synthesis and Balanced Hammer Keyboard.

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.

Welcome to the new era in synthesizers from the company that brought you the industry-changing DX and the infamous MOTIF. Building on the legacy of these iconic keyboards, the Yamaha MONTAGE sets the next milestone for synthesizers with sophisticated dynamic control, massive sound creation and streamlined workflow all combined in a powerful keyboard designed to inspire your creativity.
