I Mean how it sounds using the Tyros styles to control the Montage like a sound machine

Not a primary function for using Montage. Tyros Styles use special Voices assigned to Part 9-16 which are designed specifically to act as accompaniment - the Montage has special Parts designed especially for real time play. You couldn't be farther at the other end of the scale of things to do with Montage.

That said, it is MIDI data and, of course, you could spend all day mapping out Tyros Parts to play from Montage, but I'm not sure the result would be satisfying. Each keyboard has a focus, the focus of Tyros is to be an accompaniment keyboard. The focus of Monatge is to be a player's synthesizer.

Bad Mister, should we compare the Montage, in terms of a single instrument with insane sound, to as if we were buying say, a custom ebony Les Paul 1959 or a Fender stratocaster Sunburst 1954. Being that we are buying it for the sound and its purpose is to be manipulated as a single instrument to be recorded. Does this make sense at all haha:)?. Thank you for you time.

Ha! I like the reference to Les Paul!!! ...not so much for the guitar but for the genius behind it! Les Paul invented modern multi-track audio recording back in the late 1940's early 1950's by disconnecting the Erase head on his tape recorder, allowed him to play a guitar part then go back and "overdub" a second, and third and fourth pass... He did the same thing with Mary Ford's vocals... Changed the world.

Because Montage breaks the one-Part, one-Channel, one-track paradigm, and because recording/rendering audio will be a part of your workflow when in the studio with Montage, the multi-tracking audio reference to Mr. Les Paul is right on point. Whether Montage becomes as iconic as the guitar that bears his name is yet to be seen... But it could happen!
