Hello,

I would like to know which DAW are you using usually with your Montage and if you encountered any problems when connecting the Montage via usb to it.
I'm using Bitwig Studio (but I have also the lite version of Ableton Live 9 and Cubase LE AI 8.5) on a Win7 Ultimate PC.

I use Cubase AI 9 for sequencing and record to WAV using Audacity, mixing/mastering with Adobe Audition and Ozone 4/6.

You should be aware that it is not possible to record using Windows 7 due to a driver bug which always produces static and hissing. Use any sound source to record anything via any tool on Windows 7 and anything you expect to be silence will be full of artifacts you can easily hear with slight amplification.

It’s audible without amplification, and makes it impossible to layer tracks etc. It is not possible to produce a clean and professional result with any DAW on Windows 7.


I used Windows XP to record before, but now that it is USB-based I use Mac OS X. I did not have any problems with the USB interface on Windows 7 or Mac OS X (but Windows 7 still can’t record clean audio regardless of the sound source).

Logic Pro X (10.2)
Mainstage 3 (3.2)

I'm very happy with how well the Montage works as a USB Audio interface live with MainStage 3.
I use Ivory Pianos, loads of Alchemy, EXS24, Kontakt, instruments, and it has never glitched, very low latency, and has no problem with Mainstage, Ableton, and Traktor DJ running at the same time!
I no longer have to carry a separate Audio interface, everything comes out the outputs of the Montage, (only one DI needed) and even acts as a MIDI to USB for external controller (which is a CP4 in this case.)
thanks!

When I queried Steinberg about AI9, they told me it would not be accessible and that AI8 is what ships with all Montages (even if you register one today). I'm surprised since the download information card doesn't mention a version - only "entitled to download a full version of Cubase AI".

So Cubase AI 8 it is.

Sonar Platinum.

Does any thing and more, imo.
I love it.

No problems with Montage or any thing.

I also use Adobe Audition.

Windows 7 professional.

Cubase 8.5 Pro. Haven't yet seen anything I need in Cubase 9, and I'm waiting until other people find all the serious bugs and Steinberg fixes them. :)

When I researched DAW software years ago, I looked at 3 final contenders. Pro Tools, Cubase, and Cakewalk Sonar all would work for me. I eliminated the first two when I found out they use iLok. I don't do dongles. I have some software in my Electornics Lab that cost thousands to purchase and $1500/year for upgrades. They didn't use dongles!

I love Sonar Platinum with free lifetime upgrades!

Hello - just to keep a balance, I don't have a DAW at all - Montage works fine without one. But I'm not a musician, just a sounds guy. I admit that Walter's Post caught my eye - a major stumbling block for me is those wretched dongle things! But if I don't need it, I don't need it ...

Hi In my case , i never was a DAW user or fan the only thing that it brings me is a very pain full mouse arm - hand. for me the modern DAWs software are way to complex to could have fun on making multi track recording - music production projects , i did try them all cubase - sonar - ableton -logic - pro tools. and all did not can do wat i really want. that is also the main reason why i always and still do love my good old Yamaha motif xs -xf ,while these boards can do all the things, that a daw can do . means if you know how to use all the amazing built in functions the final results can be even better then when use a DAW any way but so once in a while and now with the new Montage you do need a DAW for your mult track recordings mix edits mastering etc etc . so when i want to use my motif and my montage i have a awesome simple option i use a more then 10 year old sort of a daw software program that can do all things on a very easy and simple way without any problems and works just fine i use the most easy to use - [ Cool Edit Pro 2.0 ] a multi track audio - midi sequencer recording mix- edit - master software that always works and even can convert your recordings to a audio wave and ore Mp3 file works fine with the steinberg usb and montage audio interface . !!

Update: upgraded to Studio one 3 Pro from Studio one 2 Producer so far so good , Im loving it easy MIDI setup routing DAW to Montage not crazy about Instrument VST. You can drag and drop Vst effects and Instrument without a glitch without stopping while creating and laying down tracks.

Cubase 9 Artist you can't do this without getting glitches, the remote IC for iPad for cubase 9 is troublesome to setup and won 'detect within the IC App, while Studio One 3 remote app for iPad does this automatically and is flawless.

For now My go to is Logic Pro x and Studio One 3 still waiting for Akai to release MPC 2.0 DAW Software before My final verdict.

Took a Snap shot of the Implementation for external hardware setup.
