Now you can jump directly to the Control Assign screen from the Envelope Follower Edit screen via a new touchscreen button. This makes assigning synthesis and effect parameters to the to the Envelope Follower even easier!

envelopefoll       Maintain Related Edit Screen

If you change between Parts that use two different tone generator types (for example, AWM2 to FM-X), MONTAGE maintains the related edit mode. For example, if you are assigning controllers on an AWM2 Part and change to an FM-X Part, you will stay on the controller assign page. This is very useful for doing batch edits.

       “Click Setting” Shortcut

The “Play/Record” screen now has a “Click Setting” shortcut for changing metronome parameters.

       Category Search “All” Reset

This enhancement resets the main Category to “All” when changing Bank, Attribute or performing a Name Search.

       Larger Font Size Selection

Setting font size to “large” now makes all Category and Sub-category text larger within Category Search.

       Global Tempo and Global A/D

The new Global override settings are a welcome addition. These settings allow you to maintain tempo and A/D set ups between different Performances.

Global Tempo overrides any Performance-specific tempo settings. This is useful when searching for an Arpeggio or Drum groove that works with a specific tempo.
globaltempoGlobal A/D input overrides any Performance-specific A/D input settings. This is useful if you want your A/D input setting to remain constant when changing Performances.
