Great sounding Synth
Sonnieger, 23.12.2017
Nice looking synth with great factory voices. Guitars are really good.
The super knob is a nice feature which changes the colour of the sounds.
It has a very basic recording facility, but with no editing possibilities.
It does come with Cubase daw should you need to edit. overall the voices
are rather good. I would recommend this product if you are looking for
a decent synth. Plenty of memory for adding your own stuff.
The negative points [for me at least] Not easy at first to navigate around and
with so many things to learn. Expensive, but a good price from Thomann.
Would have been even better had it been a workstation. Sound wise it doesn?t
dissapoint.

Superb synth!
Clemzie_, 12.08.2018
I've been playing around with this synth for few months and all I have to say is that it is awesome. I use it for music production so the most important thing for me is sound quality. Sound is fat, clean and most importantly it cuts through the mix. Build quality is great too. The only minor issue I've found ist that touch display can be a bit laggy from time to time. It is great that regular firmware updates don't bring us just bugs fixes but also new features, new sounds and new possibilities. I haven't used a Yamaha synth before so I must say it took me quite some time to get used to it due to all the functions and possibilities, which of course I can't say it is a downfall. Anyway it is a superb synth and I don't regret buying it even for a moment.

Ausgezeichneter Synth
06.07.2016
Ich brauchte einen neuen Hauptsynth für mein Studio und habe mir den Yamaha Montage 6 gekauft. Nach drei Wochen ausgiebigem Testen bin ich sehr zufrieden.

Bei einem Synth sind für mich die wichtigsten Bewertungsmerkmale Klang und Bedienung und der Klang des Montage ist ausgezeichnet, sehr hochwertig und druckvoll. Dabei verwende ich die Presets nicht sondern programmiere nur eigene Sounds mit der samplebasierten Engine und dem 8OP FM Synth.
Die Klangerstellung geht über das Touchscreen in Kombination mit den Reglern (die direkten Zugriff auf bestimmte Funktionen wie Cut Off, Resonance, Hüllkurve etc. erlauben) sehr gut. Zusätzlich kann man noch eigene Reglerzuweisungen definieren. Dadurch lässt sich auch die komplexe FM Synthese recht komfortabel bedienen.

Bei der samplebasierte AWM2 Synthese lassen sich maximal acht Samples pro Klang kombinieren. Man kann also einen Klang aus acht verschiedenen Oszillatoren bauen (jeweils mit eigenen Hüllkurven und Filtern etc.), wodurch sich sehr komplexe Sounds erstellen lassen.

Zusätzlich gibt es für beide Synthese Engines diverse Modulationsmöglichkeiten wie LFOs und mehrkanalige Motion Sequenzer.

Die interne Struktur ist anfangs etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig, man verläuft sich öfters mal in das falsche Menü. Nach etwas Einarbeitung kann ich aber die Logik einigermaßen nachvollziehen und komme schneller zum Ziel. .

Mögliche Minuspunkte für bestimmte Anwendungen:
1. Die Midikanäle der 16 Klänge im Multimode (der Montage ist immer im Multimode) sind fest zugewiesen. Für mich kein Problem da ich die 16 Kanäle in der Regel nicht alle belege. Hier könnte es auch von Yamaha noch ein Software Update geben das mehr Flexibilität erlaubt, da es dafür in den Yamaha Foren schon viel Kritik gab.
2. Man kann nicht mit dem Montage sampeln. Nicht ideal aber es lassen sich WAVs importieren.
3. Kein Sequenzer, sondern nur ein ganz simpler Midi Rekorder. Ich nehme mit DAW auf deshalb nicht tragisch.

Die Verarbeitung ist sehr gut. Der Montage macht einen robusten Eindruck.

Ich kann den Montage allen die einen leistungsstarken digitalen Synth suchen sehr empfehlen.

Molto soddisfatto....
02.11.2016
La soddisfazione totale del servizio Thomann.
Servizio italiano precisissimo e cordiale.

La Montage è un synth che va addomesticato.
i suoni sono fantastici grazie ad una scheda audio di prima qualità.
La complessità dell'architettura delle performance è inspiegabile... per sfruttarla a dovere occorre conoscere molto la programmazione dei suoni.

Mi piace la possibilità di utilizzare in varie SCENE 8 arpeggi dedicati per 8 operatori differenti (nel Motif 5)

La SuperKnow è unica...

Ottima Keybed

Contro

Mi sarebbero piaciuti dei preset di generi musicali già preparati... ma qui la musica la creiamo noi....


Peso 15 Kg ... argh!!!

Manca una softcase progettata per la Montage

per il resto
molto contento... ne vale tutto il prezzo speso
