Hi can someone help please.

I use Cubase 8.5 Pro
PC running Windows Professional 7
Purpose built Audio Workstation i7 PC

I don’t think my Montage is set up for mid correctly and wonder if my problems are due to an incorrect install, how I would find this information out and if necessary the best way to carry out a fresh reinstall. I say this because since I received my Montage, I have not been able to enjoy the multi-timbral functionality because my current configuration does not treat added parts as separate instruments and instead assigns any part I add to the global midi data. When I watched BM’s video I was hopeful of getting the multi channels working because I was able to see that unlike me he initialized the Montage performance with ‘Multi/GM’ where as I had previously being doing so with ‘Init Normal (AWM2)’. I thought that might be the reason for my issues. I tried the new technique and it didn’t work so I have been printing to audio and as I go along. Not ideal so I’m hoping someone can show me where I have been going wrong.

So a few weeks ago I updated to the latest firmware (1.20.4) and also installed Montage Connect. The following may or may not be important but the only other time I had installed a firmware update is when I first got the synth early June and so if there have been any later firmware updates prior to 1.20.4 then I would not have not installed them and wonder if missing a previous update could be the main contributor to the issues I am having?

I followed firmware 1.20.4 installation instructions and did not receive any error message. Unfortunately since the update the Montage has not been acting weird in Cubase specifically with midi. I have been busy of late and I haven’t really used the Montage in a while so said to myself when I get some time I should go through the Cubase midi set up guide and make sure I haven’t inadvertently changed the Montages midi settings thus causing my current issues. I did that today using the Yamahasynth resources ‘Montage Cubase Set Up Guide’ and am satisfied that Montage is set up the way the screen shots recommended.
I tried again this evening to but the issue still remains.

My problem is that:

The piano keys are not responding to velocity information properly. To confirm in addition to above I have set the Montage midi channel to ‘ANY’ in Cubase Inspector. When I used Cubase ‘Chord Pad’ (triggers whole chords from a single key) I am only able to trigger the chords when I press the piano key softly. If I push the key assigned to the chord pad with hard velocity only the single note of the respective key plays for example if the trigger for the chord is a ‘C’ then only the C will be heard. Also the other keys that are not assigned to the Chord Pad ca n only be heard when played at soft velocity. It’s really very strange and I am no midi expert but it sounds like a midi signalling issue.

Of note I have a Native Instruments Machine and Access Virus attached to the PC via USB and prior to the 1.20.4 all were playing nicely with each other (even the Access virus!)

Also Montage Connect (MC) does not work for me within Cubase. I fire it up and it displays the performance name but I can get no sounds when I press a Key (Might not have it set up correctly). Cubase is showing that MIDI is being sent from the Montage. To be honest I am not so bothered with MC not working for me as yet but thought I’d include that information in case it is suggestive of something in my set up.

Could anyone please have a stab at helping me get things back up and running?

Thanks

Let's go over a checklist of items. If you can follow along that would be great.

On your Montage:
Press [UTILITY]
Touch "Settings" > "Quick Setup"
Touch the "MIDI Rec on DAW"
This makes all the critical settings for MIDI communication with your computer. It turns "Local Control" to Off which disconnects the Montage keyboard from the Montage tone generator. Meaning we must complete this routing circuit *through* a Cubase MIDI track.

Let's double check your other Montage Utility settings
Touch "Settings" > "MIDI I/O"
Verify that MIDI In/Out = USB (green)
The very top line of your screen should have keyboard with a cancel line through it (indicating Local Control is Off) and next to it a USB symbol.

Touch "Settings" > "Advanced"
Make sure your MIDI I/O mode = Multi (green)
This allows the Montage to transmit and receive on multiple MIDI channels

Press [PERFORMANCE (Home)]
Press [CATEGORY SEARCH]
Touch "Init"
Select "Multi/GM"
Press [ENTER]
This sets you up to use the Montage as a sixteen Part multi-timbral tone engine.

With the Montage powered On and ready to go launch Cubase.
Cubase should detect the Montage connected to the computer.
You should be asked if you wish to use the Montage driver (Yamaha Steinberg USB driver) as your interface.
If not, don't worry, we'll tell you how to make/verify the Cubase settings.

Once it launches - setup an EMPTY Project.
Go to DEVICES > DEVICE SETUP > MIDI PORT SETUP
Make sure you see the Montage Ports marked in the "In All MIDI Inputs" column. Three Montage Ports should appear.
Montage Port 1 - is for music data: note-ons, controllers, tempo
Montage Port 2 - is not used
Montage Port 3 - represents the 5-pin MIDI IN/OUT jacks on the Montage back panel which can be used to interface one external device

Find the VST AUDO SYSTEM item
Make sure the ASIO Driver = YAMAHA STEINBERG USB

Click Apply and OK

Go to the main Cubase Track view screen
Go to PROJECT > ADD TRACK > MIDI TRACK
The MIDI IN will read "All MIDI Inputs"
The MIDI OUT should be set to "Montage 1" (port 1)

Because we have selected the "Multi/GM" Performance template, you are using one Part, on one MIDI channel, so starting with channel 1 you can record data for Part, create a second MIDI Track for channel 2. Place a new Part in Part 2, and so on.
You can select a sound for each Part by touching the Part Name box to call in the pop-in "Search" function, or by pressing the [SHIFT] + [CATEGORY SEARCH] to see the Part Category Search option.

Let's see if this gets you started in the right direction.

I am still having the MIDI issues where by:

When I use Cubase ‘Chord Pad’ (triggers whole chords from a single key) I am only able to trigger the chords when I press the piano key softly. If I push the key assigned to the chord pad with hard velocity only the single note of the respective key plays for example if the trigger for the chord is a ‘C’ then only the C will be heard.

I did not have the above problems before the firmware update.

Have you come across this issue before ?

Before we go here, are you able to record and playback MIDI? I purposefully did not go to this Chord Pad function because until you have MIDI routing successfully setup, we can't move forward. Try to stay with me, please.

Seems everything is working. Follow up by letting us know if you can record and playback, normally. Thanks.

Okay, forgive me but I have to take things in the order I do because otherwise we find out weeks later that we missed some basic setup item.

The other thing in your original post I can help you with is the following:
Also Montage Connect (MC) does not work for me within Cubase. I fire it up and it displays the performance name but I can get no sounds when I press a Key (Might not have it set up correctly). Cubase is showing that MIDI is being sent from the Montage. To be honest I am not so bothered with MC not working for me as yet but thought I’d include that information in case it is suggestive of something in my set up.
To launch Montage Connect.

Go to DEVICES > VST Instruments
Select "Track Instrument"
Replace "No VST Instrument" with "Montage Connect"
Click ADD TRACK

A heading item will be created in the inspector and the Montage Connect interface should open. (This not a track, just a banner which will allow you to show and hide the "Montage Connect" interface.

If you are properly connected via USB, the Montage Connect should come "ONLINE"

There is no audio component with the Montage Connect. You complete the MIDI circuit when you have a MIDI Track active (selected) - it is that MIDI Track that determine if and what sounds from your Montage. You will create a new Track for each Part you want to communicate with, 1-16.

Because Local Control is Off, remember hearing the Montage requires an active MIDI Track.
Using the functions of the Montage Connect are fairly straight forward;
you can capture your current setup by clicking the "Computer << Keyboard" which allows what's on the Keyboard to show up on the computer.

The capture is time stamped and an * asterisk appears when a change has not yet been saved.
When you SAVE the Cubase Project, the data in Montage Connect will automatically be saved with the Project. If Auto Sync is set On, when you next open the Poject, the Performance will automatically be bilked to your Montage's edit buffer (even if the the Performance is not in your Montage's USER Bank.

Let us know.

Hi BM,

I followed your instructions as per above and have Montage Connect working with Cubase as you described. I created a Multi-timbral pattern, saved it and then opened it up again with no problems.

I think I'm ready for the next stage :)

Cubase "Chord Pad" is a MIDI PLUG-in - if you are using a MULTI PART Performance make sure the Channel on the track is set to "ANY." This will allow all the channels you are transmitting on to echo back out on the channel they came in on.

Hi BM, I initialized the patch with 'Init Normal (AWM2)' and set Channel to 'ANY' just to keep things simple and unfortunately the synth is displaying the same behavior as per below.

'The piano keys while using Chord Pad are not responding to velocity information properly. To confirm in addition to above I have set the Montage midi channel to ‘ANY’ in Cubase Inspector and also 1. When I use Cubase ‘Chord Pad’ (triggers whole chords from a single key) I am only able to trigger the chords when I press the piano key softly. If I push the key assigned to the chord pad with hard velocity only the single note of the respective key plays for example if the trigger for the chord is a ‘C’ then only the C will be heard'

Can I ask if I initialize the patch would that also initialize any previous editing I had done last time I did some design (about 2 or 3 weeks ago) ?



Not sure what to do next.

Appreciate the help and advice

Everything works - it sounds like you are having issue with the "Chord Pad" plug-in. I tried it for the first time, works fine.
Did you know the INIT Normal AWM2 does not respond to velocity. So that is no mystery, try choosing a sound that responds to velocity when you play it on Montage. That will ensure that it responds that way through Midi, as well. Start with "CFX + FM EP"

What range of keys are you using to trigger the chords?

Thanks BM,

Everything is not working!

So I have initialized the patch with Init Normal (AWM2) and added Chord pad to the Montage Midi track and set its channel to 'ANY'.

As expected it is not velocity sensitive and the chords play as expected. I removed the Montage midi channel.

I loaded up a VST instance of Kontakt Alicia Keys Piano which set automatically to channel '1'. I then assigned Chord Pads to the Kontakt channel. The VST performed perfectly normally in regards to velocity sensitivity, recording and play back. I then removed the VST.

I initialized the Montage patch again using Init Normal (AWM2), created a new Midi channel called it 'Montage' and set the channel to 'ANY'.

I then loaded the performance 'S700 for Montage'. The keys are velocity sensitive across all of the octaves.

I then load up Chord Pads on the Montage midi channel.

When I press a key within the chord pad range 'C1 to C2' the individual note plays ONLY (NO CHORD) however it is velocity sensitive.

I then go to try and press 2 notes on the Chord pad simultaneously because LESS than 20 seconds ago I was able to trigger a chord doing that and now none of the Keys are producing a sound. The Cubase inspector is showing that no MIDI is being sent.

I remove the Montage Midi channel and then load up Montage Control which displays the 'Online' message.

I create another Montage Midi channel , initialized the patch as per previously and try to play a note however there is no sound and the Cubase inspector is still not showing any Midi activity when I press any key.

These problems have arisen since I updated the firmware. I cannot use the Montages internal sounds as previously with Chord Pad and the Midi data is not working as expected.

Any more advice

Thanks

Sorry, I was one the road last week when you posted the question, I will have to take a look at this. I have never used the CHORD PAD feature, so I will need to learn about it, then look into this. Nothing in the update concerned the reception of MIDI data or velocity so this is unlikely, but I've learned long ago, never say never.

I'll take a look at this, this week, thank you for your patience.

Thanks BM, its all good so hit me when you have the time. Running this website and providing the support that you do means guys like me don't mind waiting :)

p.s I saw on another thread about headphone sockets and that you mentioned initialization via 'system' and so I went ahead and selected 'Initialize all Data' etc.

I then loaded up Montage Connect which displayed the the 'online' message.

I then loaded up a Montage Midi channel and initialized to 'Init Normal (AWM2)'

Then added a Montague Midi channel set to 'ANY'

The notes played as expected and could be recorded as Midi for playback.

I then loaded performance 'CFX =+ FM EP' and it played as expected and was velocity sensitive.

I played chords manually and they worked as expected. I was also able to record the chords and play them back as captured.

I then added Chord pad and almost immediately I could hear a prominent lead note in the Chord I was playing. It was louder and stuck out.

I then recorded the chords from chord pad as I played. Only the highest note of the chord played back properly. There seems to be some lower notes playing but they are very very quiet and slightly delayed. I have not added any effects and can see the chord midi data in the midi editor has been recorded (4 notes per chord).

In the midi editor and the chord velocities are at very exaggerated volume levels (41,60, 28 etc) considering I tried to play them at uniform velocities.

I then try and use the eraser tool to delete some of the midi notes however the behavior is not as expected - In order to delete a note in midi editor I need to click and press the eraser icon over the midi note 4 times!! There should have only been one instance of midi data recorded and so this is unexpected.

Thanks for your help.

Your performance must have been a multi part one (guessing 4 part). This was covered elsewhere. Maybe the cubase tutorial. If you want to edit MIDI, montage advanced (UTILITY) and set MIDI I/O to single and pick a channel (1 perhaps). Rerecord the same thing and see if multiple note experience goes away.

Agreed. It's a MIDI plugin which is probably looking for a single MIDI channel coming in. If you wish to use this plugin with Montage you have two choices:
_ Use a Single Part as the input Part
_ If you want to use a Multi Part Performance, set the MIDI I/O mode to Single in [UTILITY] > "Settings" > "Advanced"

When you recall "CFX + FM EP" you are transmitting on 5 MIDI channel (4 from the acoustic piano, 1 from the electric piano). This plugin is likely looking for a single channel input, so Montage in Multi MIDI I/O mode presents it with a challenge. There maybe other creative ways to deal with this (particularly if you are using Cubase Pro, which has the ability to transform incoming data).

As I mentioned, I've rarely explored these types of plugins, but I recognize they have many uses. I suggest you start out by setting up with a Single Part sound, get it to work. Then if what you need to do requires a Multi Part Performance, try setting the MIDI I/O to Single and select a single channel on which to Send in and out of this plugin.

I'll see if we can get some more details on possible workflows. This should get you started...

Also please make sure you have the latest build version of Cubase (the last update had something to do with issues in Chord Pad)! Let us know what you discover. Remember the Montage, different from the previous series, can routinely transmit on multiple MIDI channels, simultaneously.

Thanks Gent's.

I appreciate I am a MIDI novice but the crux of my issue is that prior to performing the Montage update I was able to use Chord Pad as intended.

I have composed several completed tracks recording instruments made of multi-parts using Chord Pad consistently and never encountering this problem.

When the Montage stopped working for me as Midi controller i.e could not transmit midi note data when I pressed a key (as described in this thread) surely that should have been strong evidence in support of a change in the Montage's operational behaviour. I have since not been able to repeat the fault but I have not spent much time in front of the board because of other commitments.

I will try the below work around you mentioned as per below and hope that this fixes things.

_ If you want to use a Multi Part Performance, set the MIDI I/O mode to Single in [UTILITY] > "Settings" > "Advanced"

Chord Pad is part of my production work flow and has been for the months since its release on Cubase 8.5 pro (which is fully updated)

Would you recommend reinstalling the update or perhaps dropping back to the previous OS where I had no problems?

I have projects earmarked for a January start am happy to take advice before proceeding to reinstall ect ..

I would recommend you contact Steinberg through your MySteinberg Account, since the most recent updates to Cubase did concern Chord Pad specifically. If indeed something did change concerning the Montage firmware update that adversely affects the way you use Chord Pad, I would let them know. Nothing in the Montage firmware update was directly concerning Chord Pad (that's for sure).

I know nothing about the CHORD PAD function, neither how it worked previously, nor how it is not working now. By reporting this to Steinberg, you will force a chain reaction that will get engineers talking - - so that's my recommendation. Please describe for them what did work and what currently does not. And while they maybe clueless about how the Montage works, they are surely on top of how Chord Pad works.

Let us know.

Thanks BM,

I've just reported to Steinberg and am awaiting response. i'll let you know what they advise.

In the interim is it advised to reinstall the previous Montage operating system where I did not experience this midi problem and if necessary also remove Montage Connect in the hope of restoring previous functionality ? I ask because I am just trying to ensure that I wont mess up the board (if that's even possible) by installing an older OS.

I can confirm J and BM are right I use this plug-in and love it with my Montage .
The only thing the Arps don't play the same with local control on .
I just updated to 1.20 to see if it help and it kinda did because it seems the super knob is working now with local control off ,
which is great but I can't change seen or sliders :(
so I could use some help with that .

@ Mr. Spock,

Here are some things that will always be true concerning Arps:

_ When recording MIDI data to a DAW, LOCAL CONTROL should be OFF. This disconnects the Montage Keys from directly triggering the Montage Tone Generator. This should be the case whether you are recording normal play or recording arpeggios

_ When recording regular MIDI playing use the QUICK SETUP = "MIDI Rec on DAW". Local Control is OFF. Arp MIDI Out is OFF. Signal flow looks like this:
https://YamahaSynth.com/images/MontageSnorkel/UserArp/MIDIflow_Normal.png

_ When recording Arpeggios use the "Arp Record on DAW" QUICK SETUP. This moves the location of the Arpeggiator so that it is located directly after the Keyboard. Your key presses arrive in the Arpeggiator, the output of the Arpeggiator goes Out via USB-MIDI where it is recorded to the DAW. Local Control is OFF. Arp MIDI Out is ON. Signal flow looks like this:
https://YamahaSynth.com/images/MontageSnorkel/UserArp/MIDIflow_ArpRec.png

_ In certain situations incoming MIDI data can trigger the Arpeggiator, if you are not aware of where the Arpeggiator is located. This can present a problem if you've already recorded the Arp data to your DAW. If you use the "Arp Rec on DAW" you should be able to RECORD and PLAYBACK your recorded Arp data without conflict... because the Arpeggiator cannot be reached by incoming MIDI data.

_ added with firmware 1.20 you can Bypass the Arpeggiator by holding [SHIFT] + [ARP ON/OFF] (flashes to indicate Arps are bypassed).

_ Changing the parameter setting for "ARP MIDI OUT" changes the location of the Arpeggiator - until this is understood, it can be a head-scratcher.

Hi BM,

I am getting really stressed out with this whole thing.

As advised I contacted Yamaha and they got back to me earlier this week with the following message which I have tried out today.

''Please initialise the preferences of Cubase by performing these steps:

- Close all programs.
- Open the 'Run' command prompt.

Windows 7: Press the Windows logo key + R simultaneously.

- In the command line of the 'Run' window, enter this path: %appdata%/Steinberg
- Locate the folder which is named the same as your Steinberg program, for example 'Cubase 8'.
- Rename it (for example to "XCubase 8 ";) in order to hide it from Cubase.
- Important: If you find folders of previous Cubase versions, make sure to hide or remove them, too.

Next time you start Cubase, a new folder with fresh preferences and default settings will be created - which hopefully fixes the problem you've experienced.

Preferences that you have grown accustomed to and that have taken a lot of time to configure - the key commands (Key Commands.xml) for instance - can be copied from the inactive folder to the newly created active preferences folder at a later point.''


The above has not helped and the reason why I am back to this forum without getting back to Steinberg is because their suggested work around has caused latency (about 0.5 seconds) on the Montage sounds. VST's respond normally. VST record normally using the Montage as a midi controller.


When I initialize the Montage and select an instrument there is significant lag (0.5 secs) when striking a key.

I am then unable to select another instrument using the touch screen. It will simply keep playing the originally selected sound.

Do you think perhaps I should try and reinstall the current OS ? Perhaps the install was not done properly ?

I cannot really see how this is a Steinberg problem. These issues have happened since the update and I have not been advised to reinstall since opening this ticket.

The Steinberg advice has now meant that I have to manually search and locate all of my previous projects which is a massive waste of my time, which has been made all the more frustrating because it has not actually addressed the reported midi problem.

I am convinced the hardware is fine but the actual software is where my issue lies.

Please help.


On a side note If there is anyone out there in two minds whether to buy a Montage I have one for sale search 'Tyron L' on FaceBook and we can discuss a price.
