Re: MEMORY?

The MONTAGE/MODX synths internal memory is 5.67 GB of factory waveforms. MONTAGE user memory is 1.75GB. MODX user memory is 1 GB. I wonder if there is more internal and user memory then the current spec allows. Maybe memory being held back for updates and added sounds and performances down the road...

Re: Sampling 2 VST Sample Robot

I don't know if this helps, but did you setup Sample Robot using the following, choosing "Part 2: Virtual Audio Cable with Windows Audio" as the method to use? http://blog.ultimateoutsider.com/2015/03/recording-virtual-instruments-with.html You could try having "LoopBE1" set for MIDI input on both V...

Re: 2 Questions from new potential MODX7 owner

1. MODX has a " Live Set "mode, equivalent to "QA" of Kurzweil: 16 performances per screen, Personally i have one Live set per song. You have the possibility to add some notes to each performance (about 20 characters) You can navigate in Live Set by touch screen, by button (SHIFT - INC / DEC) and e...

Re: sample robot for MODX

But don’t you need more than 1.75 GB space in the Montage to do so? Some of my piano vst libs are over 100 GB. There are some compromises I have to make, such as 5 velocity layers instead of 8 or more, but I managed to get it down to just under 800MB. The top two ff ff & ff f velocity layers, I sam...

Re: Yamaha MODX Wishlist - Suggestions For Future Updates

Just in case someone is thinking that this latest update 3.0 might be the last one, let this post from Blake (Yamaha), put that thought out of your mind and continue thinking/promoting about what new 'reasonable' ideas you would like to see in the next OS update release, as Blake assures us "that th...

Re: Montage 6 or MODX 7?

But now, having bought a Fantom-7, my love of aftertouch has been rekindled. Aftertouch wasn't a deal breaker for me when deciding between the Montage8, the MODX8 & the Kronos 88, as there were other aspects that were far more important for my decision that lead me to go with the Montage8; however ...

Re: Montage 6 or MODX 7?

I am debating about those two. I can get a pristine Montage 6 for 1800€ and the price for a new MODX 7 is about 1300€. I wanted 76 keys, so the MODX 7 option, but perhaps for that kind of rig I can go on with 61 keys (I have other 76-keyers, as the EX5 and Genos). Adding to the MODX 7 option is tha...

Re: sample robot for MODX

Not working here. S,no not accepted I have a Montage, so it works fine for me, but I've read on other forums where MODX users are somehow 'magically' obtaining a serial number (or whatever is needed) from a Montage to use the software..!? Anyway, I finally had a chance to try it and capture a full ...

Re: MODX versus Roland Fantom?

Great job calling the new MONTAGE/MODX updates. You said you had a gut feeling and you were right. (Y) Thanks Patrick, now if I could just get my wife to say those last 3 words to me every now and then! :lol: My new intuition or gut feeling is that they had much more features to give us, but decide...

Does anyone know whether the new OS will eat into the 1Gb of internal memory? I see that the Montage version is a 182Mb download.
You're safe, it will not take up any of your 1GB User memory! :wink:

Then Yamaha set up yamahasynth.ideascale .com last year and I quote: Got an idea for new synthesizer design or feature? We have just the group for you. We've set up a new IdeaScale community for you to tell us your thoughts. In the Montage / MODX section users posted about 220 ideas (feature wishes...

Re: Yamaha Montage OS 3.0 - Features

Yamaha knows how to disappoint. And it's a shame that the all user data gets wiped out with the backup. They should have found a way to do a firmware update without clearing all data. It's not 1998 anymore. And there's only one reason I can think of: Yamaha sells Montages anyway so why keep track o...

Re: Yamaha Montage OS 3.0 - Features

Here I am who has a three year old synth which just got a free major software update. Great stuff! I was not really interested in the sequencer but who knows, maybe I might have some use for it at last... but there are lots of other things people asked for, it is free and there are not that many co...

You should have taken bets. You could have made some $$$ :lol: Well, Saul has told us he's seen the roadmap, so it was just a matter of time before we get an update. But then Bad Mister, who is always on the YamahaSynth.com site, was away from the site for a bit, and I knew he had been on the Voici...
