New AN-X Engine for analogue sound

The centrepiece of the Yamaha MONTAGE M is the AN-X engine, known for its authentic analogue sound and behaviour. AN-X recreates the warmth and unique sensation of analogue synthesizers. It boasts three oscillators with five waveforms (two saws, triangle, square, and sine) and a noise generator that can be shaped through two filters with 10 filter types. Additional features include ring modulation, wave shaper, and more. For vintage synth sounds, voltage drift and ageing functions allow further manipulation.

Improved AWM2 and classic FM-X engines

In addition to the all-new AN-X engine, the Yamaha MONTAGE M also features an improved AWM2 engine and the FM-X engine, resulting in a total of up to 400 notes of polyphony. The MONTAGE M was uniquely crafted to provide highly realistic imitative and creative sound, and the combination of these three powerful engines achieves exactly that. For optimal workflow integration, the new models feature USB MIDI and an audio interface, an Expanded Softsynth Plug-in (ESP, coming in 2024), and faster, easier navigation.
