My Montage midi was working good until I updated my Montage to 2.0. Just trying to restore it back to previous firmware. Or if any one has a back up that they would like to share please let me get it. I love the Montage I just want the midi to work like the out the box version I had. I still got 45 days to return it don’t want to but I hate every time I change the sound there a delay I just like 1.02.0 better don’t care about the new features just like the original.

Do you mean 1.20?

Why not ask, “How do I change sounds without a delay? My situation is this....”
Then explain a specific use case that, if explained, might help you over the hurdle.

As far as I know there is no way (nor any good reason) to downgrade the system to 1.02.x
And that would certainly NOT help the speed of anything in MONTAGE.

Where would you even obtain the older firmware? Yamaha seems to only list the latest firmware version now.
They don't have the previous versions listed anymore.

For a different reason, I had asked if the original firmware was available for download. This was much closer to the initial launch date of Montage. The feedback was that the initial launch firmware was not available for download. As far as I know, the launch firmware has never been made available.

v1.11 can be found if you search from software clearing-house type sites.

That's as early as I can find still hosted. Version 1.10 was available at some point (filename "montage110-2.zip" ). I cannot locate this version.

I do think it's worthwhile to discover if there is a way to work through the issue you're having with the latest firmware. If you rely on any sound libraries to expand Montage - many of these will build off of presets or effects that may only be available in later versions of Montage firmware. There's a fairly long list of what you lose with earlier firmware.

EDIT: For reference - here is the original message alluded to in the 1st paragraph: https://yamahasynth.com/forum/montage-firmware-revert-to-original-version
