Music in Motion
From the stroke of piano keys to an orchestral crescendo, music always moves. Montage introduces new ways for musicians to control sound and create expression with Motion Control. Motion Control puts rhythmic and multidimensional control at the musician's fingertips for sound that moves from radical to sublime.

Super Knob
Create dynamic sound changes from radical to sublime with the Super Knob. The Super Knob can control multiple parameters simultaneously, creating any sound imaginable. You can change your listening position from the front of an instrument to the back seat of a concert hall, or radically change the character of a performance from atmospheric and mellow to rhythmic and edgy. The Super Knob can even be assigned to a second FC7 foot controller, allowing you to manipulate the sound when playing with both hands.

USB Audio/MIDI Connection
Connect MONTAGE to your computer with a single USB cable and capture every nuance of your creativity into your DAW. MONTAGE boasts a powerful USB driver that can send 16, and receive 3, channels of STEREO 24 bit/44.1 kHz digital audio to and from your computer or iOS device. MONTAGE is also class compliant and does not require any additional hardware. The USB connection also features full MIDI support of 16 channels. MONTAGE supports the sampling rate up to 192 kHz.

Cubase AI
MONTAGE is bundled with Cubase AI, Steinberg's professional music production application, which offers integrated recording and editing. Cubase AI is a special, compact version which uses the same core technologies as Cubase Pro - exclusive to customers of selected Steinberg and Yamaha hardware products. It provides all the basic tools for recording, editing and mixing - from the initial idea to the final masterpiece. Cubase AI is the perfect entry into the world of computer-based music production and offers powerful, yet easy-to-use software tools for all genres.
