The Envelope Follower feature is a powerful and creative way to use an external audio source with your MONTAGE. This video session provides additional information to the Mastering MONTAGE 11: Envelope Follower lesson. Any parameter available within the Motion Control system is routable to the Envelope Follower and the resulting rhythmic textures are remarkable. In this short video, Product Specialist Blake Angelos and Yamaha Drums Product Marketing Manager Steve Fisher (playing the DTX Multi 12 Electronic Percussion Pad) reveal the secrets of the Envelope Follower. Enjoy!
