I went from an XF8 to a CP4 because I wanted to concentrate on playing instead of the enticing distraction of sound design, sampling, etc. I have no regrets, except I miss a MIDI sequencer and have compensated by connecting my iPad to the CP4 and recording MIDI tracts into Cubasis and editing them there, which is passable. The truth that I don't think Yamaha wants the world to know is that the AW2 sounds from the CP4 are significantly better than the AW2 sounds from the XF8, at least in my opinion because I have owned and played both (using Yamaha studio monitor speakers). But per a response to my earlier post, I understand that the AW2 sounds of the Montage are worlds better than those of the XF (and by extension I assume the CP4 as well) and that twists my arm to buy the Montage. Therefore, I am considering a return to complexity and fairly sure that I will sell the CP4 and buy a Montage 8 because I do not see the argument of having both since the CP4 which is based on "Performances" like the Montage never leaves my home studio.
But getting back to Montage MIDI sequencing, I have read the Owner's Manual and other threads and can not find an answer to this question. If I record a MIDI sequence in the Montage and hit a wrong note on one of the performance tracks, is there any editing capability in the Montage itself to correct that wrong note other than punching in/out with a new recording which may have its own mistakes? And if so, what other MIDI sequencing editing capabilities does the Montage itself offer on board? If none, then I think it is a design mistake and failure to understand that many of us do not want to be chained to a computer and want a standalone keyboard with MIDI sequencing and editing as well as all advance, new technology that a Montage offers.
Thanks in advance.
