"Yamaha Montage Synth, Based On Entirely New Technology

YAMAHA’S NEW MONTAGE synth offers unprecedented ways for keyboard players to control and interact with sound.

For more than 40 years, Yamaha has developed industry-leading synthesiz-ers, from the revolutionary DX7 in the 1980s to the renowned Motif series, one of the best-selling synthesizers of all time. The Montage, available in 61-, 76-, and 88-key configurations, features the Motion Control Synthesizer Engine, a powerful and intuitive way to interact with and control sound.

The Motion Control Synthesizer Engine controls two iconic Sound Engines: Advanced Wave Memory 2 (AWM2) and FM-X. Compatible with previous generation Motif libraries, the AWM2 engine is exponentially more powerful than the previous Motif XF flagship with nearly ten times more wave memory, integrated flash, double the effects, and twice the polyphony. Joining the powerful AWM2 engine is FM-X. A sophisticated pure FM (Frequency Modulation) synthesizer engine is capable of producing classic ‘80s or cutting-edge EDM sound with excellent dynamic range, power, and fidelity.

Montage also features a brand new user interface with color touch screen, endless rotary encoders and the Super Knob: a macro control allowing users to control multiple parameters simultane-ously.

‘Montage is the culmination of over forty years of synthesizer legacy and innovation,’ said Nate Tschetter, mar-keting manager, music production, Yamaha Corporation of America. ‘Playing and experiencing Montage is, quite simply, inspiring.’

Update: A quick note on the evolution of this post. As typically happens, stuff gets sent in, I parse it, post it, and then updates come in. Below is the original blob of text I was confronted with from the source site. This was before the scans went up. It appears the source site did a bad copy and paste of the article and jumbled sections out of order. Imagine reading it first. Some of you did and got to enjoy my experience. For those that didn't here you go. A Tacky what?

VATER TACKY SACK VATER PERCUSSION’S new Tacky Sack Grip Enhancer, the first product of its kind to be marketed to the drumming world, features a sack of grip-enhancing rosin powder that absorbs moisture and provides drummers additional control of their drumsticks while performing in humid and sweaty conditions. Gently “clapping” hands on the Tacky Sack applies rosin powder to the palms. A cord is included to hang Tacky Sack from a snare drum, stick bag, or hard-ware. “Once again, Vater knows just what I need, even before I do,” said Slipknot’s Jay Weinberg. “Especially in intense, sweaty environments, Tacky Sack allows me to lose myself in the vibe of a song without worrying if I’m going to send a stick flying from my palms. My grip relaxes, and I’m better able to avoid carpal tunnel-like problems. Tacky Sack lets me thrash with com-plete control.” Marilyn Manson’s Gil Sharone added, GRIP ENHANCER YAMAHA’S NEW MONTAGE synth offers unprecedented ways for keyboard players to control and interact with sound.
