MONTAGE M soundlibraries released by EASY SOUNDS
Today we released all of the previous MONTAGE / MODX soundlibraries in MONTAGE M format.
Three libraries are upgraded using the new features of MONTAGE M:
Organ Session (using new VCM Rotary effect and more)
Live Organ (using new VCM Rotary effect)
FM-Xplorer (using the new Waypoint feature)
EASY SOUNDS Shop
The above listed libraries are introcuded in the EASY SOUNDS Youtube channel.
Today five new videos showing the organs with the new VCM Rotary effect and FM-Xplorer using the Waypoint feature:

Can I ask, are there any major differences in the new Montage M versions of the libraries when compared to the previous Montage soundlibraries (e.g. FM-Xplorer)?
Also, is there any way (or channel, retailer etc.) how to purchase your soundbanks in Finland in the future? It says on your web page that you're not able to sell to Finland ( https://easysoundsshop.de/finland-info).
If you compare the Montage FM-Xplorer and Montage M FM-Xplorer pages you will see specs for the new library have a few more Performances (and live sets). The newer Montage M will have the waypoints which are the paths that superknob can follow within the morphing 32x32 window. The previous classic version only had one line it could travel on and now there are several lines available so you can define a more complex path of travel through the morphing grid using super knob.
There's indications on the website that folks with the classic/original Montage libraries can upgrade to the M versions with some kind of discount. How much of a discount between 0%-100% is not advertised that I could see.
Jason, thanks for your helpful answer to the questions of VintageKlavier1980s.
I would like to give some more informations about the upgraded versions of our libraries. This informations are excerpts of the shop info.
This sound library is based on the MONTAGE version of the same name. Beside content of the previous version that has been converted this sound library contains new as well as re-designed Performances using dedicated features that were introduced with the MONTAGE M series like…
- VCM Rotary Speaker
- VCM Rotary Speaker speed sontrol using the Ribbon Controller
- More than 8 Elements per part
- Inverted Fader movement to control Elements drawbar-like
In "Live Organ" the previous content of this library was completely adopted for the MONTAGE M version and supplemented with 40 newly programmed MONTAGE M Performances.
In the Performances specially programmed for the MONTAGE M version, the new VCM Rotary Speaker Effects are used. These effects, which also contain DRIVE and OVERDRIVE, are a special highlight of the MONTAGE M and they are perfect for authentic Hammond sounds.
The basic content of the previous version is kept completey, 10 Performances using the new Waypoint feature are added. Different from Organ Session and Live Organ there is no fixed Upgrade price. Please contact the shop support if you are interested. The upgrade fee will be low.
Regarding to the problems with deliveries to Finland I cannot say more than you find in the info.
Additional to my last posting here you find some more informations about the upgrade conditions from MONTAGE libraries to new MONTAGE M versions. Jason already touched on this topic in his post.
First of all: The Yamaha MONTAGE M loads all content from the previous MONTAGE and MODX(+) series without restriction. Most of the existing EASY SOUNDS libraries do not require an update or new download. Only in case of the three libraries I mentioned in my last posting it is recommended to purchase MONTAGE M upgrade versions.
Upgrade - "Organ Session" to MONTAGE M, Upgrade fee = 29,00 EUR
This upgrade entitles customers to purchase the MONTAGE M “Organ Session” sound library who have already purchased the EASY SOUNDS sound library of the same name for MOTIF XS, MOTIF XF, MOXF, MONTAGE, MODX(+).
Upgrade - "Live Organ" to MONTAGE M, Upgrade fee = 29,00 EUR
This upgrade entitles customers to purchase the MONTAGE M „Live Organ” sound library who have already purchased the EASY SOUNDS sound library of the same name for MOTIF XS, MOTIF XF, MOXF, MONTAGE, MODX(+).
Upgrade - "Organ Session | Live Organ" to MONTAGE M "Organ Lover's Bundle“, Upgrade fee = 49,00 EUR
This upgrade entitles customers to purchase the MONTAGE M "Organ Lover's Bundle" who have already purchased either "Organ Session" or "Live Organ“ for MOTIF XS, MOTIF XF, MOXF, MONTAGE, MODX(+).
The Content of "Organ Lover's Bundle" consists of the two MONTAGE M Soundlibraries "Organ Session" and "Live Organ“.
All customers who have purchased at least one of the two libraries - "Organ Session" or "Live Organ" - for the Yamaha synthesizers MOTIF XS/XF, MOXF, MONTAGE or MODX(+) are entitled to purchase the bundle.
This is a very generous offer and we expect that most customers will prefer it against a single 29,00 EUR upgrade.
Upgrade "FM-Xplorer“ to MONTAGE M
Different from Organ Session and Live Organ there is no fixed Upgrade price.
