Yamaha Montage 8 White Synthesizer (White)

Original price was: €3,800.Current price is: €2,900.

Of every model included in the Montage Series, the Yamaha Montage 8 is where you’ll find all those decades of development and experience laid out across the face of a single synthesizer. In the first place, the 88 highly impressive-feeling piano keys give this instrument particular authority while, despite the tight and possibly overwhelming army of controls included, the Montage 8 remains incredibly easy to operate. The generously sized colour touch-screen provides intuitive navigation while the aptly named, ‘Super Knob’, controls a wealth of sound parameters like a kind of macro.

The Samples of the Yamaha Montage 88
The overwhelming volume of sounds this synth can produce leaves us wondering what this machine can’t do. Pianos, strings, brass, drums, guitars and more and in the superb quality you would expect of Yamaha, and all generated by the unsurpassed AWM2 sound engine. If you remember the prowess of the Motif XF, then it’ll be worth mentioning that the Montage 8 comes with maybe ten times its capacity, double the polyphony and double the effects.

Frequency Modulation
While the AWM2 is undeniably powerful, the sound-designing capability of the FM-X perhaps outstrips it. Back in the ’80s, Yamaha redefined music production with the DX7 FM-synthesizer by introducing us poor saps to a level of expression and breadth of sound that our naive ears had yet to encounter. Synthpop, ballads, EDM in general and anything that followed would have been unthinkable without it. As such, the combined force of the AWM2 and FM-X engines is not just a pretty good idea, it’s actually awesome.

Who Needs This?
This synth is so comprehensive and flexible, it will easily find a comfortable place in any genre, on any stage and in any studio. This is an all-out performance instrument; an all-in-one production beast for producers who find software a little lacking and, due to the pure creative power of the AWM2 and FM engines, an indispensable writing tool for pretty much anyone.
