Not an apples vs apples comparison really. The 2 engines in Montage are in hardware not software, you'll notice this when you switch it on , they're also capable of a wide variety of sounds each, not geared to reproducing piano or organs.Derek wrote:

Montage is two engines for £1100 each on a '61
Possibly an unfair comparison.....
Kronos only has 9 engines @£300 each if the user likes them all. For me the piano, epiano, organ and string engines have zero value and I'd have to do the Kronos equivalent of del piano*.*, del organ*.* etc, as the samples of those take up valuable storage space. In fact I'd have to bin the entire supplied waveset. Admittedly at least that can be done on the Kronos but same goes for PC too (or rather just install users own choice).
This is my number one criticism of pcm synths for the last 20+ years. I was hoping Montage had changed that but seems not.
