Motion Sequences are tempo-synchronized, completely customizable control sequences that can be assigned to virtually any synthesizer parameter and provide incredible creative new ways of programming sound.
Motion Sequences also have dedicated controls on the front panel making it easy to manipulate and change in real-time, providing incredible interactivity and expression.
The Envelope Follower converts audio into a control source for control of virtually any synthesizer parameter. For example, a drum loop could drive effects parameters for a cool rhythms or a vocal recording could control multiple parameters for a “talking” synthesizer. The audio can even be a “live” source through the A/D input.
The A/D input processes external audio sources with your instrument’s DSP. Use mics, guitars or any line source as an input and process with the internal effects.
You can even use these sources with the Envelope Follower or Sidechain for a truly unique sound.
MONTAGE features a comprehensive set of physical controls for intuitive music making and sound creation.
[Touch Screen] Select and change parameters directly with the new color touch screen.
[Eight Rotary Encoders and Faders with Stepladder LED] Stepladder LEDs next to the faders indicate position making it easy to see where your current mix position is.
