The Yamaha Montage 6 is Yamaha’s latest flagship workstation. I’ve spent some time with the Montage 6. One of the features that I thought would be perfect to share separately from the review is its envelope follower feature.

Considering my focus is typically beat driven music,it’s only right to pair the Montage with a dope drum machine. The Montage 6 envelope follower worked perfectly with my Elektron Analog Rytm drum machine.

Envelope Follower is a function for detecting the volume envelope of an input signal (microphone, guitar, drum machine etc.) and converting it to a control signal that can be mapped to virtually any synthesis parameter.
