Hi,

i have a two part question(s):

If half the sounds that are playing (i.e. all the sequenced stuff) are routed through the additional outputs of the Montage & not through the main L/R outputs(whereby only non-sequenced sounds that you play on the keyboard at a gig, go through the main L/R outputs), does this still all count against the total output governed by the dB tool, whereby it could potentially be driven into distortion/clipping? Or does the dB tool govern the additional outputs differently than the main L/R and they are basically two separate output streams that allow for more total output volume without distortion/clipping..!?

Additional question:
Is there a global limiter or loudness maximizer effect on the Montage that can be applied on everything & potentially stop any clipping/distortion before the sound goes to the output ports?

Thanks,
Darryl

Point of order: there is only one A/D Input on MONTAGE. It can handle a mono or a stereo input. Yes, there are two jacks, but it should be thought of as a single Input:
I’ll take that “Pepsi Challenge”!!! You already have one of the best ‘loudness maximizers’ built-in. The fact you are apparently still unaware means, or says to me, that you have not even tried it yet... or perhaps you have not discovered how it works.

Yeah, I don't have the Montage yet, so I have not tried anything accept the piano sounds at the store. I will definitely be checking out the ‘loudness maximizers’ built-in.


I highly recommend BEFORE you make such a request, and definitely BEFORE you go spend more money, try to learn to use the processing already built into your MONTAGE! Take your time... and take all advice, even mine, under the premise of just suggestions... you will need to decide for yourself what works best for you.
Once again, decide for yourself, but only after YOU have explored and exhausted the potential already built-in to the instrument.


The vocal mic/mixer thing, I will definitely consider what to do with that later.

Right now I have some time to learn about some additional details regarding the Montage, so hence the questions without having an actual Montage yet.

Ok, you don’t have one yet... because you were certainly sounding like someone who hadn’t played with one yet. Take your time — you are worrying about things you have no reason to worry about yet.

That's correct, I am planning to buy it early in the new year, and since I have some time, I am taking my time to ask some questions that I am curious about and that will also help me in terms of planning my setup. It may seem like worry, but I find this half the fun and more fascinating than anything. ;)
