Here, listen to the mellow sound of Roland Dp603.

Roland DP603 PHA-50 Plastic + Wood Hybrid Keys

Roland PHA50 action

PHA-50, which is Roland’s best key action yet, is included in DP603. The combination of plastic and wood makes the DP603 look more natural, The escapement feature integrated in the PHA-50 will make players feel the action of an actual piano, because the wood parts will vibrate. It also feels natural when sliding the keys.

*Escapement –  the mechanism that allows the hammer to clear the string after striking, so that the string can vibrate (TheFreeDictionary).

The hammers of grand piano are positioned horizontally and therefore get affected by gravity directly, which enables faster key recovery. Hammers of upright pianos are positioned vertically with springs (jack).

Roland DP603 Physical Modeling vs. Ordinary Sampling

Instead of recording each key with different velocity (sampling), Roland came up with a computerized algorithm to produce the natural sound of piano called “physical-modelling”. This means that players are able to express even intricate details with the DP603. It can simulate the different resonances from different piano voices since they all have different materials and design.

Roland DP603 3D Ambience

When playing alone with headphones, the 3D ambience function will make players feel like the sound of the piano is resonating all around them, as if they are playing piano at a studio or concert hall.

Yamaha Montage 88 picture

Yamaha Montage, the latest synthesizer made by Yamaha will offer a new paradigm of modulating a song in real time, something that players could not achieve with other synthesizers in real time. The combination of 2 sound engines, FM-X (new modern version of synthesis engine) and AWM2 (waveform based subractive synthesis engine) enables players to create variety sounds simultaneously. One component that differentiates Montage with its previous model Motif-XF is motion control feature. Instead of controlling each sound encoders and sliders, with a move of a controller called ‘Super Knob’, players can change maximum of 16 parameters easily (also possible with a foot pedal). The goal of Yamaha Montage is to enable players to achieve new sound and modulation with a simplest conrol move. There are 3 different types of montage, 61 keys, 76 keys, 88 keys.

“Music in Motion… Montage sets the next milestone with sophisticated dynamic control, massive sound creation and streamlined workflow…. While Montage certainly takes some operational design cues from the Motif series, Montage is an exponential improvement over Motif in terms of sound, control and workflow.” – Yamaha

Yamaha Montage‘s motion control with super knob and pedal that control various parameters simultaneously. Like converting sound while synchronizing with beat + multi dimensional sound modulation. Can change (add or remove) section, drop in & out the sound.

-Integrated motion sequencer

Yamaha Montage has programmed controller movements at the matching key press timing, also changes tones rhythmically.

Montage has parameter rotary encoders with position memory

-With Yamaha Montage, players can send out 16 stereo channels to IOS device or computer using DAW and return 3 back for monitoring purpose.

Yamaha Montage back

Yamaha Montage used high quality aluminum (arched design) for light weight and abrasion proof.

Yamaha Montage has analog power supply for the DA converter’s IC. It is the secret of its sound quality.

Yamaha Montage LED.jpg

Yamaha Montage has fancy LED screen and buttons that are cleary visible at anywhere (in dark, under stage light or sun).

-Yamaha Montage has flagship engine that Yamaha developed for 10 years.

Yamaha Montage‘s envelope follower uses audio signal as the source for the dynamic control of parameters.

-Montage 6 and Montage 7 have semi-weighted keyboard

-Montage 8 has weighted balanced hammer action.

For brief pictured description for Motion Control, click here.

 

Yamaha Montage Features (from Yamaha official site)

Motion Control Synthesis Engine

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.

Interact with MONTAGE Performances using Motion Control: a highly programmable control matrix for creating deep, dynamic and incredibly expressive sound. With Motion Control, you can create new sounds that were not possible on previous synthesizers.

Create dynamic sound changes from radical to sublime with the Yamaha Montage’s Super Knob. The Super Knob can control multiple parameters simultaneously resulting in anything you can imagine. Yamaha Montage enables players do something they could not do with other synthesizers in live performance.

Yamaha Montage’s Super Knob function can even be assigned to a second FC7 foot controller making it easy to manipulate the sound effect when playing with both hands.

For example, with Yamaha Montage, you can first play with small ensemble orchestra voice, and when you use either super knob or volume pedal, the small ensemble gradually becomes big string orchestra. And you can also add drum beat(+tempo control) using either controller.

– Motion SEQ
