Yamaha has discontinued the Montage, but New Flagship Synth is coming this Fall


Yamaha has announced that they are discontinuing the Montage, their flagship workstation synthesizer, but says that a new synth workstation is coming in October

Released in 2016, Yamaha Montage synthesizer workstation has been hugely successful, finding a berth in studios and on stages around the world.

The successor to the Motif, the Montage was powered by the Motion Synthesis Engine, which combined Yamaha’s AWM2 waveform-based subtractive synthesis engine with a “modern version of synthesis” known as FM-X. It was released in 61-, 76- and 88-note formats. Explaining its decision, Yamaha has indicated that it has taken the Montage as far as it can. “As much as we would have liked to, we cannot develop the current Montage any further,” it explains in a statement.

But Yamaha also had good news to share about the Montage line, though, as Yamaha is saying sayonara with one final set of free content for Montage owners. This contains three acoustic pianos: a Yamaha U1 upright piano, a Yamaha C3 grand piano (AKA “Nashville Grand”) and a Felt Yamaha U1 upright piano.

In addition, the company is teasing that a next-generation Montage is arriving in October. Whether this will be an evolution of the existing model or a completely new design remains to be seen, but more information is set to be confirmed on the Yamaha Synth website in due course.

Here’s what the company says:

“Today we are discontinuing the MONTAGE music synthesizer.

Since its launch in 2016, MONTAGE has provided musicians with new ways to express themselves. As much as we would have liked to, we cannot develop the current MONTAGE any further.

As a thank you we are providing a final set of content free of charge for all MONTAGE owners. This pack contains three acoustic pianos: a Yamaha U1 upright piano, a Yamaha C3 grand piano (AKA “Nashville Grand”) and a Felt Yamaha U1 upright piano. MONTAGE owners can download this content free of charge right here.

We appreciate the music you made as well as the passion you show for Yamaha Synthesizers. Thank you for your support!

And one more thing…the next generation MONTAGE synthesizer is coming in October.”
