Re: Are synthesizers addictive?

Are synthesizers addictive? Good question. I think synths, hardware and software are very addictive. At one time I had five hardware synths at once. For a minimalist person like me that was a boatload of synths. Now I have just one great synth that covers whatever I need pretty much. Only problem no...

Re: MEMORY?

I am a little off topic, but I cant help wonder. 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...

Re: User performances here?

Hi Macke, Thanks for the very good info. I was a little surprised there are no MODX performance posts yet. A few months back I started a show your studio pics post. Only me and one other person posted pics. I hope this fares better, :lol: I will definitely post some performances in about a week or so.

User performances here?

Testing … one two three, :lol: Is this the right area to post user performances that use only MODX sounds? I was thinking about sharing some of the sounds/performances I created on MODX. I am no master sound creator, but I just wanted to share and maybe help demonstrate a little how powerful MODX/MO...

Re: New MONTAGE/MODX OS update

I have used midi learn in CUBASE AI to get my MODX to work with a DAW.
Only thing I cannot seem to do is get MODX transport controls to control Cubase AI transport controls.
I wish YAMAHA would add transport remote to MODX.
Even just that one addition would be fantastic.

Re: Vangelis at his Monster Custom Setup . . . .

Vangelis is among my favorites.

First time I became truly aware of his music was BLADERUNNER.
In my opinion and taste, BLADERUNNER is among the most perfectly matched soundtracks to a movie.

Vangelis=genius.

Thanks for sharing the vid. :)

Re: THANK YOU YAMAHA.

Yamaha does deserve a big thanks. In 1984 I got my first synth, a YAMAHA cs-01. I was a YAMAHA guy ever since. Once, around 2015 I was without a YAMAHA synth for almost a year. My other synths I had at the time just didn't do it for me, from a writers point of view. I am first and foremost a songwri...

Re: OS Update Release - Wish List

My gut is telling me that the Yamaha Voicing team are working right now on new 'Preset' Performances for a soon to be released Update, which if true means there are new sounds being added, such as potentially the C7 piano, etc., and/or possibly due to a 3rd new VA engine being added. I can't tell y...

Re: MODX versus Roland Fantom?

I think the new Roland Fantom is a great synth and I would love to have one in addition to my Montage 8. At the same time, if you've watched the videos from the big 45th Anniversary event that announced & demoed some of the new features in the Montage 3.0/MODX 2.0 OS update, you should have seen/he...

Re: New MONTAGE/MODX OS update

So they only put out updates if they really add something new and also of course to deflect from what the competition are doing (Roland Fantom). Timing is everything in this business. I am wondering if they might have planned this to happen just after Roland's new release as per what you say above,...

Re: New MONTAGE/MODX OS update

People will always complain about something. It's human nature. Yamaha are a bit of a victim of their own success and marketing. They are often seen as this huge monolithic company that could easily bang out products and OS updates with ease. The reality is that Yamaha have to watch the bottom line...
