Building on the legacy of the synths that came before it, the Montage sets the next milestone for synthesizers. Designed to inspire your creativity, Montage allows you more flexibility and control than any synthesizer before it. Platform-focused and constantly evolving with firmware updates, Yamaha has added significant improvements to sound, control and workflow. With the Motion Control Synthesis Engine, flexible connectivity, and the revolutionary Super Knob, Montage is a must have for the professional musician.

Motion Control Synthesis Engine
The Motion Control Synthesis Engine unifies and controls two iconic sound engines: AWM2 (high-quality waveform and subtractive synthesis) and FM-X (modern, pure frequency modulation synthesis). These two engines can be freely zoned or layered across eight parts in a single Montage performance. Motion Control, a highly programmable control matrix, allows you to create deep, dynamic, and incredibly expressive sounds not possible on previous hardware synthesizers.

Flexible Connectivity
Yamaha spares no expense when it comes to connectivity options. You have your typical headphone output, balanced Left/Mono and Right outputs and MIDI In, Out and Thru connections. In addition to these you have A/D Inputs for microphones or line level instruments, a separate assignable Left and Right output section, two-foot controller inputs, and two-foot switch inputs. This combination of inputs and outputs allows for some crazy experimentation. You also have USB to Host to connect to your computer and USB to Device to save and load settings onto an external storage device.

Super Knob
The Super Knob is programmable, customizable, and is all about giving the user control over their music. With the ability to control an additional 8 assignable knobs, you can determine what parameters the Super Knob will affect. This allows for endless possibilities when it comes to creating sounds and is a useful tool in the studio as well as on the stage. You can also assign the Super Knob to the Foot Controller 2 jack on the back of the Montage, allowing both hands to remain on the keyboard while you put the Super Knob in motion.

FREE Samson Headphones
This synth comes with a free pair of Samson SR950 Professional Studio Reference Headphones. Featuring a closed-ear design, self-adjusting headband, 50mm drivers, and 10Hz-30kHz frequency response to deliver crystal clear audio for extended listening sessions.

  • Motion Control Synthesis Engine gives you control over two iconic sound engines (AWM2/FM-X)

My Studio is Complete


The Yamaha Montage 8 is a dream. In ten minutes, I have sketched out a new song.



Montage is a beast!


Great keyboard does everything and more. Just take the time to learn the system. It's a beast but you can do it!



I would definitely buy this product again


Great Keyboard!



I just need one


Easy payment plan



A worthy successor to the beloved Motif


Integrated seamlessly with my Cubase Pro 8.5. Layout is hightly intuitive and keys are responsive, yet not overly so. Screen is bright and pressure sensitive that is customizable. Although my 76 key version is a bit heavy with my Gator case, it is not a show stopper by any means. Solid state through and through. An amazing instrument and a worthy successor to the Motif line.

A beast of a Synth


Yamaha is a juggernaut in the keyboard/synth world and this year they unveiled their new beast, The Montage. The new sound engine, Motion Control Synthesizer Engine, gives you the best of both the Motif and 80's classic synth engines. You have an endless amount of option with this synth. A must have.



Top of the line synthesizer!


The Yamaha Montage is a fully fledged monster of a synthesizer. It boasts a ton of features from the old models and revamps them with some new features exclusive to the Montage. You can dial in almost any sound your heart desires with this thing and it's compatible with any DAW or interface you may have. Yamaha consistently makes great products and this is a great choice for producers, artists or DJs to add a little spice to their repertoire.

One of the best


This is one of the best in its class. It sounds fantastic and is fun and easy to use. I can't wait to get one myself!




61 keys of awesome


The Montage is the keyboard to create the sound of your dreams. The controls really allow you to create that specific sound you're looking for. My favorite part of this keyboard is its compatibility. It has midi (in, out, and thru), USB to keyboard, USB to your computer, multiple outputs, multiple footswitches, inputs, and of course headphones.
