ATTENTION
Observez toujours les précautions élémentaires reprises ci-dessous pour éviter tout risque de blessures corporelles,
pour vous-même ou votre entourage, ainsi que la détérioration de l'instrument ou de tout autre bien. La liste de ces
précautions n'est pas exhaustive :
Alimentation/cordon d'alimentation
Connexions
• N'utilisez pas de connecteur multiple pour brancher l'instrument sur
une prise secteur. Cela risque d'affecter la qualité du son, voire de
provoquer la surchauffe de la prise.
• Veillez à toujours saisir la fiche, et non le cordon, pour débrancher
l'instrument de la prise d'alimentation. Si vous tirez sur le cordon,
vous risquez de l'endommager.
• Débranchez la fiche électrique de la prise secteur lorsque vous
n'utilisez pas l'instrument pendant un certain temps ou en cas
d'orage.
• Avant de raccorder l'instrument à d'autres appareils électroniques,
mettez ces derniers hors tension. Avant de mettre ces appareils sous
ou hors tension, réglez tous les niveaux de volume sur le son
minimal.
• Veillez également à régler tous les appareils sur le volume minimal
et à augmenter progressivement les commandes de volume tout en
jouant de l'instrument pour obtenir le niveau sonore souhaité.
Précautions de manipulation
Emplacement
• Ne placez pas l'instrument dans une position instable afin d'éviter
qu'il ne tombe accidentellement.
• En cas de transport ou de déplacement de l'instrument, faites
toujours appel à deux personnes au moins. En essayant de soulever
l'instrument tout seul, vous risqueriez de vous faire mal au dos ou
de vous blesser ou encore d'endommager l'instrument lui-même.
• Avant de déplacer l'instrument, débranchez-en tous les câbles afin
d'éviter de les endommager ou de blesser quiconque risquerait de
trébucher dessus.
• Lors de la configuration de l'instrument, assurez-vous que la prise
secteur que vous utilisez est facilement accessible. En cas de
problème ou de dysfonctionnement, coupez immédiatement
l'alimentation et retirez la fiche de la prise. Même lorsque
l'interrupteur d'alimentation est en position d'arrêt, du courant
électrique de faible intensité continue de circuler dans l'instrument.
Si vous n'utilisez pas l'instrument pendant une période prolongée,
veillez à débrancher le cordon d'alimentation de la prise murale.
• N'insérez pas et ne laissez pas tomber d'objets en papier, en métal
ou autres dans les fentes du panneau ou du clavier. Vous pourriez
vous blesser ou provoquer des blessures à votre entourage,
endommager l'instrument ou un autre bien ou causer des
dysfonctionnements au niveau de l'instrument.
• Ne vous appuyez pas sur l'instrument et ne déposez pas d'objets
lourds dessus. Ne manipulez pas trop brutalement les touches, les
sélecteurs et les connecteurs.
• N'utilisez pas l'instrument ou le casque de manière prolongée
à des niveaux sonores trop élevés ou inconfortables qui risqueraient
d'entraîner des troubles définitifs de l'audition. Si vous constatez
une baisse d'acuité auditive ou que vous entendez des sifflements,
consultez un médecin.
Yamaha ne peut être tenu responsable des détériorations causées par une mauvaise manipulation de l'instrument ou par des modifications
apportées par l'utilisateur, ni des données perdues ou détruites.
Mettez toujours l'instrument hors tension lorsque vous ne l'utilisez pas.
Même lorsque l'interrupteur [STANDBY/ON] (Veille/Marche) est en position de veille et que le rétroéclairage de l'écran est éteint, une faible quantité
d'électricité circule toujours dans l'instrument.
Lorsque vous n'utilisez pas l'instrument pendant une période prolongée, veillez à débrancher le cordon d'alimentation de la prise murale.

Thank you for purchasing the Yamaha MONTAGE6/7/8 Music Synthesizer. Since the first MOTIF was
launched in 2001, the MOTIF series has reached fourth-generation status and has finally been remodeled—
for the first time in 15 years—as the new MONTAGE.
The MONTAGE has an immense set of impressively high-quality sounds, exceptional playability, and a
sophisticated, stylish design—making this long-awaited instrument destined to be long-loved as well.
High-quality sounds that take you to new creative
and expressive heights
We took the bread-and-butter sounds of the MOTIF series used extensively by artists
worldwide, and significantly enhanced them.
In answer to many and repeated requests from power users, we have created this new model
with FM (frequency modulation) oscillators and many new effects. Moreover, the MONTAGE has
a powerfully dynamic Motion Control System that lets you variably control sounds in real time,
giving you the best of both worlds—tradition and innovation—in sonic expressiveness.
We improved the analog circuitry in the audio output, ensuring superior quality sound
reproduction over a wide frequency range, and especially accurate reproduction over the mid
and high frequency ranges with exceptional clarity.
The MONTAGE is equipped with a wide range of dynamic sounds for use in virtually any music
application.
Controllers and user interface designed for
high playability
The MONTAGE has new controllers which are useful not only as a live-performance keyboard,
but also as a high-performance synthesizer. The MONTAGE’s playability is maximized in live
performance situations through the Live Set function, Scene function, and SSS (Seamless
Sound Switching.)
Moreover, the MONTAGE has a completely new performance controller—the Super Knob—
which lets you easily and expressively create multi-textured, multi-dimensional sound and
music. The sound changes are synchronized with lighting changes on the Super Knob itself as
well as eight other small knobs. It’s almost like having a conversation with the MONTAGE, and
spurring each other on to new creative heights!
The MONTAGE is comprehensively designed for intuitive, simple operation, yet with meticulous
detail, and is ideal for professional musicians.
Here finally, is a musical instrument with stunning sounds, broad capabilities and deep
expressiveness that is truly addictive, and will be your new go-to instrument!
We really hope that the MONTAGE6/7/8 will help your creativity and musical
work grow by leaps and bounds.
Enjoy!
Sincerely,
The Yamaha MONTAGE Development Team

Main Features
 High-quality, enhanced sounds covering a
wide range of music styles
The MONTAGE is loaded with 5 GB (in 16-bit linear
format) of preset Advanced Wave memory (AWM2) —
more than seven times the size of the previous MOTIF
XF6/7/8. The MONTAGE has a huge variety of sounds,
including highly realistic Piano sounds, with largevolume waveform data. Unlike its predecessors, the
MONTAGE features 1.7 GB of User flash memory built in,
for storing various Performance libraries. The
Performance data is maintained in the same way as
preset Performances even if the power is turned off. The
MONTAGE also now features an FM-X tone generator,
providing powerfully complex FM synthesis. This puts
both standard FM and new-generation FM sounds in
your sonic palette, giving you a wide range of
expressive, richly textured sounds to work with, and lets
you combine both the FM-X and AWM2 tone generators.
 Extensive effect processing
The MONTAGE has a huge variety of professional and
modern-music effects, including Beat Repeat, Vinyl
Break, Bit Crusher, and Analog Delay. The instrument
also gives you a wide array of signal processing options,
including separate Variation and Reverb, an overall
Master Effect including multi-band compression, fiveband master EQ, independent Insertion Effects, plus
three-band EQ before the Insertion Effects and two-band
EQ after them. These Insertion Effects contain wide
variety of sound processing options, including a special
Vocoder effect.
 Motion Control System for new musical
possibilities
The Motion Control System is a completely new feature
for variably controlling Motions (rhythmical, multidimensional sound changes) in real time. This amazingly
powerful feature dramatically and dynamically alters the
sounds of the instrument in new, never-heard-before
ways—changing texturally, rhythmically with the beats,
providing cool, colorful lighting effects, and responding
expressively to your creative passion.
The Motion Control System has three main functions:
1) Super Knob:
For creating multi-dimensional sonic changes, and
enhancing those changes with colorful, continually
shifting lighting changes.
2) Motion Sequencer:
For continually variable sound changes.
3) Envelope Follower:
Synchronizes the Motions with tempo and volume of
audio input and other Parts.

MONTAGE Owner’s Manual
 Expanded, enhanced Arpeggio function and
Motion Sequence
The MONTAGE has more than 10,000 Arpeggio types
that cover the latest music styles. Further enhancing the
musical expressiveness of the instrument, you can
combine the Motion Sequence function for creating
dynamic sound variability over time with various
Arpeggio types. You can store all contents—Arpeggio
Type, Motion Sequence, and other parameters such as
Part volume—together as Scenes, and assign them to
eight buttons, letting you conveniently and powerfully
call up those Scenes as desired while you perform.
 Exceptionally convenient live performance
functions
The MONTAGE has a Live Set function for easily calling
up Performances as you play onstage. Once you’ve
stored Performances in the desired order, you can
concentrate fully on your playing and never be at a loss
on which to choose. The MONTAGE also has SSS
(Seamless Sound Switching) function for switching
between Performances smoothly without any notes
being cut off.
 Enhanced user interface
Unlike its predecessors, the MONTAGE has been
designed without any “Modes.” As a result, it is extremely
easy to understand the structure and flow of the
instrument, and the convenient touch panel is a total joy
to use. You can creatively and effectively use the touch
panel for intuitive operations and the switches for more
secure control, if desired. These switches light in three
different ways, letting you instantly understand the
current status of the switches.
 Responsive, expressive keyboard
The MONTAGE6 features a 61-key keyboard, while the
MONTAGE7 has 76 keys with a high-quality FSX
keyboard and the MONTAGE8 has 88 keys with a highquality BH (Balanced Hammer) keyboard. All are
equipped with a touch response feature (both initial
touch and aftertouch). These allow you to expressively
change the sound in various ways—initial touch by the
strength with which you play the keys, and aftertouch by
how strongly you press the keys when holding them
down.
 Comprehensive system connectivity
The MONTAGE features a built-in 6-channel in/32channel out USB audio interface for recording the highquality sound of the MONTAGE on a Mac or Windows
PC—without the need for a separate device! The
MONTAGE also supports high-resolution 192 kHz audio,
making the ideal keyboard to take into professional-level
recording situations as well. The connections are also
compatible with iOS devices.

The MONTAGE6 features a 61-key keyboard, while the
MONTAGE7 has 76 keys and the MONTAGE8 has 88 keys.
All are equipped with a touch response feature (both initial
touch and aftertouch). With initial touch, the instrument
senses how strongly or softly you play the keys, and uses
that playing strength to alter the sound in various ways,
depending on the selected Performance. Aftertouch, on the
other hand, lets you alter the sound by the amount of
pressure you apply to a note after playing it. In addition, any
of a variety of functions can be assigned to aftertouch for
each part.

Quick Guide — Selecting Performances
The MONTAGE has 16 Parts and basic musical instrument
sounds are assigned to each Part. A single set of these
sounds is called a “Performance.” You can change sounds
as desired by selecting the appropriate Performance.
Multiple
Performances
This instrument features Banks for memorizing
Performances. There are basically four different types of
Banks: Preset, User, Library, and GM. The contained
Performances and features depend on the Bank as
described below.
Preset Banks
One Performance
Part 1 (Piano)
The Preset Banks contain a full set of specially programmed
Performances. Performances you’ve edited yourself cannot
be saved in the Preset Banks.
User Banks
Part 2 (Guitar)
The User Banks contain the Performances you have edited
and stored. The User Banks are initially empty.
Part 3 (Bass)
NOTICE
Part 4 (Drum)
If a Performance in a User Bank (User Performance) is
overwritten or replaced, that User Performance will be lost. When
you store an edited Performance, be careful not to overwrite any
important User Performances.
Library Banks
There are three Part types as follows.
The Library Banks contain the Performances you have
added as Libraries. The Library Banks are initially empty.
(A Library can be added by importing a library file.)
Normal Parts (AWM2)
Normal Parts (AWM2) are mainly pitched musical instrument
type sounds (piano, organ, guitar, synthesizer, etc.) that can
be played over the full range of the keyboard.
Normal Parts (FM-X)
Normal Parts (FM-X) are powerful FM Synthesis system
sounds. This sound is played conventionally from the
keyboard, with standard pitches sounding for each key.
Drum Parts
Drum Parts are mainly percussion/drum sounds that are
assigned to individual notes.
Performances can also be divided into two groups as
follows.
Single Part Performances
A Single Part Performance contains only one Part. Select this
if you want to play a single instrument.
Multi Part Performances
A Multi Part Performance contains multiple Parts. Select this
if you want to play sounds of multiple instruments by using
layering and splitting functions.
18
MONTAGE Owner’s Manual
GM Bank
The GM Bank contains the Parts allocated according to the
GM standard.
GM
GM (General MIDI) is a worldwide standard for Voice
organization and MIDI functions of synthesizers and tone
generators. It was designed primarily to ensure that any
song data created with a specific GM device would sound
virtually the same on any other GM device—no matter the
manufacturer or the model. The GM bank on this
synthesizer is designed to appropriately play back GM
song data. However, keep in mind that the sound may not
be exactly the same as played by the original tone
generator.
Each of these Banks include Performances organized
according to the Performance type.
NOTE
• For details about Performances, refer to “Basic Structure” in the
Reference Manual PDF document.
• For lists of the Performances, refer to the separate Data List PDF.
Quick Guide — Selecting Performances
When you turn on your instrument for the first time, a Live Set
of the Preset Banks will be displayed in the top display. The
Live Set is a list in which Performances can be freely

Part Editing
Drum Part Edit
“Part Editing” refers to the process of creating a Part by
changing the parameters that make up the Part. This can be
done in the Element Common/Key Common/Operator
Common Edit display and the Element/Key/Operator Edit
display. The actual parameters that are available differ
depending on the Part type.
There are two types of Drum Part Edit displays: Key
Common Edit display, for editing the settings that apply to all
Drum keys; and Key Edit display, for editing individual keys.
Normal Part (AWM2) Edit
A Normal Part (AWM2) (having pitched musical instrument
sounds) can consist of up to eight Elements. An Element is
the basic, smallest unit for a Part. There are two types of
Normal Part (AWM2) Edit displays: Element Common Edit
display, for editing settings common to all eight Elements;
and Element Edit display, for editing individual Elements.
Drum Parts are mainly percussion/drum sounds that are
assigned to individual Keys. You can create various drum
Parts by changing assigned sound types and adjusting the
pitch and EQ.
Drum Parts of this instrument consist of up to 73 Keys.
Basic operation of Part Edit
1 Move the cursor to the Part you want to edit
An Element is created by applying various parameters
(Effect, EG, etc.) to the waveform of the instrument sound.
A Normal Part of this instrument (AWM2) consists of up to
eight Elements.
A Normal Part (FM-X) (assigned FM-X sounds) can consist of
up to eight Operators. There are two types of Normal Part
(FM-X) Edit displays: Operator Common Edit display, for
editing settings common to all eight Operators; and Operator
Edit display, for editing individual Operators.
The abbreviation “FM” of FM-X stands for “frequency
modulation,” which is special tone generation system that
uses one waveform’s frequency to modulate another
waveform, to produce a completely new one. Waveforms
are generated by “operators,” of which the MONTAGE has
eight. An operator that generates a fundamental waveform
is a “carrier,” and an operator that modulates these
waveforms is a “modulator.” Each of the eight operators
can be used as either a carrier or a modulator. By
changing the way operators are combined and controlling
the modulation with other parameters such as levels and
envelopes, you can create richly textured sounds that
change in a highly complex fashion.

How Parts are assigned to a
Performance
By default (when shipped from the factory), various types of
Performances are provided in the Preset Banks. For some of
these Performances, it may not be immediately obvious how
to play them or use them, since they are quite complicated.
In this section, you’ll learn the typical ways in which
Performances are created, and thus better understand how
to play and use them. This section covers the typical four
Part assignments.
Performance Structure
9 Set the parameters as necessary.
Try narrowing in on your desired sound by finely editing
the parameters provided for each Effect Type.
This method lets you play multiple (two or more) Parts
simultaneously by pressing any notes.
For example, you can create a thicker sound by combining
two similar Parts—for example, two different Strings Parts,
each with a different attack speed.
Compare function
The Compare function lets you switch between the justedited sound and its original, unedited condition, allowing
you to hear how your edits affect the sound.
Press the [EDIT] button while the Edit display is shown, so
that the [EDIT] button flashes. In this status, the sound

keyboard playing (velocity) and the actual sound
change.
Soft
This curve provides increased response,
especially for lower velocities.
Hard
This curve provides increased response,

Using a Connected Computer
Precautions when using the [USB TO HOST]
terminal
When connecting the computer to the [USB TO HOST]
terminal, make sure to observe the following points. Failing
to do so risks freezing the computer and corrupting or
losing the data.
If the computer or the instrument freezes, restart the
application software or the computer OS, or turn the power
to the instrument off then on again.
The MIDI data received over Port 3 via the MIDI [IN]
terminal will be re-transmitted to an external device
(computer, etc.) via the [USB TO HOST] terminal. When
using a USB connection, make sure to match the MIDI
transmit port and the MIDI receive port as well as the MIDI
transmit channel and the MIDI receive channel. Make sure
to set the MIDI port of the external device connected to this
instrument according to the above information.
NOTICE
• Use an AB type USB cable.
Audio channels
• Before connecting the computer to the [USB TO HOST]
terminal, exit from any power-saving mode of the computer (such as suspend, sleep, standby).
The audio signals of the MONTAGE can be output to the
[USB TO HOST] terminal and the OUTPUT [L/MONO]/[R]
jacks.
When connecting to a computer, use the [USB TO HOST]
terminal. In this case, up to 32 audio channels (16 stereo
channels) are available when the sampling frequency is
44.1 kHz, and up to eight audio channels (four stereo
channels) are available when the sampling frequency is
between 44.1 kHz and 192kHz. The output-to-channel
assignments are made as follows: [EDIT]  [Part Settings]
 “Part Output” in the [General] display.
• Before turning on the power to the instrument, connect
the computer to the [USB TO HOST] terminal.
• Execute the following before turning the power to the
instrument on/off or plugging/unplugging the USB cable
to/from the [USB TO HOST] terminal.
- Quit any open application software on the computer.
- Make sure that data is not being transmitted from the
instrument. (Data is transmitted only by playing notes
on the keyboard or playing back a song.)
• While the computer is connected to the instrument, you
should wait for six seconds or more between these operations: (1) when turning the power of the instrument off
then on again, or (2) when alternately connecting/disconnecting the USB cable.
MIDI channels and MIDI ports
MIDI data is assigned to one of sixteen channels, and this
synthesizer is capable of simultaneously playing sixteen
separate Parts, via the sixteen MIDI channels. However,
the sixteen-channel limit can be overcome by using
separate MIDI “ports,” each supporting sixteen channels.
While a single MIDI cable is equipped to handle data over
up to sixteen channels simultaneously, a USB connection
is capable of handling far more—thanks to the use of MIDI
ports. Each MIDI port can handle sixteen channels, and
the USB connection allows up to eight ports, letting you
use up to 128 channels (8 ports x 16 channels) on your
computer.
When connecting this instrument to a computer using a
USB cable, the MIDI ports are defined as follows:
Port 1
The tone generator block in this instrument can recognize
and use only this port. When playing the MONTAGE as a
tone generator from the external MIDI instrument or
computer, you should set the MIDI Port to 1 on the
connected MIDI device or computer.
Port 3
This port is used as the MIDI Thru Port. The MIDI data
received over Port 3 via the [USB TO HOST] terminal will
be re-transmitted to an external MIDI device via the MIDI
[OUT] terminal.

MONTAGE Owner’s Manual
The audio signals of the MONTAGE can be input from the
[USB TO HOST] terminal and the A/D INPUT [L/MONO]/[R]
jacks.
Up to six channels (three stereo channels) of audio can be
input to the [USB TO HOST] terminal. Set the output level
in the Mixing display or the Performance edit display. The
signals are output to the OUTPUT [L/MONO]/[R] jack (two
channels.) Also, up to two audio channels (one stereo
channel) can be input to the A/D INPUT [L/MONO]/[R]
jacks. The signal is sent to the A/D input part of the
MONTAGE. For more details, see the Reference Manual
PDF document.

GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
Version 2, June 1991
Copyright © 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc., 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
Preamble
2.
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to
share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is
intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software—
to make sure the software is free for all its users. This General Public
License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation’s software and to
any other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free
Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Lesser General
Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too.
a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
parties under the terms of this License.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price.
Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the
freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if
you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that
you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and
that you know you can do these things.
c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a
warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but does
not normally print such an announcement, your work based on the
Program is not required to print an announcement.)
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to
deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These
restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute
copies of the software, or if you modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or
for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You
must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And
you must show them these terms so they know their rights.
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works
in themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who
wrote it.
We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2)
offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute
and/or modify the software.
Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that
everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If
the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its
recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any
problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors'
reputations.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your
rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to exercise
the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works
based on the Program.
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents.
We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will
individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program
proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must
be licensed for everyone’s free use or not licensed at all.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
modification follow.
GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR
COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND
MODIFICATION
0.
1.
This License applies to any program or other work which contains a
notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
under the terms of this General Public License. The “Program”,
below, refers to any such program or work, and a “work based on the
Program” means either the Program or any derivative work under
copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program or a
portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated
into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without
limitation in the term “modification”.) Each licensee is addressed as
“you”.
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the
Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
Program (independent of having been made by running the
Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source
code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an
appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact
all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any
warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this
License along with the Program.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a
fee.
66
MONTAGE Owner’s Manual
You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of
it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the
Program with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on
a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other
work under the scope of this License.
3.
You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms
of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the
following:
a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machinereadable source code, which must be distributed under the terms
of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for
software interchange; or,
b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to
give any third party, for a charge no more than your cost of
physically performing source distribution, a complete machinereadable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a
medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to
distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed
only for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the
program in object code or executable form with such an offer, in
accord with Subsection b above.)
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source
code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control
compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a special
exception, the source code distributed need not include anything
that is normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the
major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating
system on which the executable runs, unless that component itself
accompanies the executable.
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
4.
5.
You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
parties remain in full compliance.
You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are
prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the
Program or works based on it.
6.
Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
restrictions on the recipients’ exercise of the rights granted herein.
You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
this License.
7.
If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot
distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence
you may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent
license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
implemented by public license practices. Many people have made
generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing to
distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
impose that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
be a consequence of the rest of this License.
8.
9.
If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain
countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the original
copyright holder who places the Program under this License may
add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those
countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries
not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates the
limitation as if written in the body of this License.
The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new
versions of the General Public License from time to time. Such new
versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in
detail to address new problems or concerns.
Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and
“any later version”, you have the option of following the terms and
conditions either of that version or of any later version published by
the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a
version number of this License, you may choose any version ever
published by the Free Software Foundation.
10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the
author to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by
the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation;
we sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided
by the two goals of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our
free software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of software
generally.
NO WARRANTY
11.
BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE
IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT
PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE
STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER
PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY
OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT
NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF
THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE
DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY
SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR
AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY
OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE
PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR
DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR
INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED

How to Apply These Terms to Your New
Programs
If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it free
software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest to attach
them to the start of each source file to most effectively convey the
exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the “copyright”
line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
<one line to give the program’s name and a brief idea of what it
does.>

Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this when it
starts in an interactive mode:

type ‘show w’. This is free software, and you are welcome to

The hypothetical commands ‘show w’ and ‘show c’ should show the
appropriate parts of the General Public License. Of course, the
commands you use may be called something other than ‘show w’ and
‘show c’; they could even be mouse-clicks or menu items—whatever suits
your program.
You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
school, if any, to sign a “copyright disclaimer” for the program, if
necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names:

This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program
into proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you
may consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with
the library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General

GNU LESSER GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
Version 2.1, February 1999
Copyright © 1991, 1999 Free Software Foundation, Inc., 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
[This is the first released version of the Lesser GPL.
It also counts as the successor of the GNU Library Public License, version 2, hence the version number 2.1.]
Preamble
enables many more people to use the whole GNU operating system, as
well as its variant, the GNU/Linux operating system.
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to
share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public Licenses are
intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software—
to make sure the software is free for all its users.
Although the Lesser General Public License is Less protective of the
users’ freedom, it does ensure that the user of a program that is linked
with the Library has the freedom and the wherewithal to run that program
using a modified version of the Library.
This license, the Lesser General Public License, applies to some specially
designated software packages—typically libraries—of the Free Software
Foundation and other authors who decide to use it. You can use it too, but
we suggest you first think carefully about whether this license or the
ordinary General Public License is the better strategy to use in any
particular case, based on the explanations below.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
modification follow. Pay close attention to the difference between a “work
based on the library” and a “work that uses the library”. The former
contains code derived from the library, whereas the latter must be
combined with the library in order to run.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom of use, not
price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this
service if you wish); that you receive source code or can get it if you want
it; that you can change the software and use pieces of it in new free
programs; and that you are informed that you can do these things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid distributors
to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender these rights. These
restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute
copies of the library or if you modify it.
GNU LESSER GENERAL PUBLIC
LICENSE
TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR
COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND
MODIFICATION
0.
For example, if you distribute copies of the library, whether gratis or for a
fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that we gave you. You must
make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. If you link
other code with the library, you must provide complete object files to the
recipients, so that they can relink them with the library after making
changes to the library and recompiling it. And you must show them these
terms so they know their rights.
A “library” means a collection of software functions and/or data
prepared so as to be conveniently linked with application programs
(which use some of those functions and data) to form executables.
The “Library”, below, refers to any such software library or work which
has been distributed under these terms. A “work based on the
Library” means either the Library or any derivative work under
copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Library or a portion
of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated
straightforwardly into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is
included without limitation in the term “modification”.)
We protect your rights with a two-step method: (1) we copyright the
library, and (2) we offer you this license, which gives you legal permission
to copy, distribute and/or modify the library.
To protect each distributor, we want to make it very clear that there is no
warranty for the free library. Also, if the library is modified by someone
else and passed on, the recipients should know that what they have is not
the original version, so that the original author's reputation will not be
affected by problems that might be introduced by others.
“Source code” for a work means the preferred form of the work for
making modifications to it. For a library, complete source code
means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control
compilation and installation of the library.
Finally, software patents pose a constant threat to the existence of any
free program. We wish to make sure that a company cannot effectively
restrict the users of a free program by obtaining a restrictive license from
a patent holder. Therefore, we insist that any patent license obtained for a
version of the library must be consistent with the full freedom of use
specified in this license.
Most GNU software, including some libraries, is covered by the ordinary
GNU General Public License. This license, the GNU Lesser General
Public License, applies to certain designated libraries, and is quite
different from the ordinary General Public License. We use this license for
certain libraries in order to permit linking those libraries into non-free
programs.
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
running a program using the Library is not restricted, and output from
such a program is covered only if its contents constitute a work
based on the Library (independent of the use of the Library in a tool
for writing it). Whether that is true depends on what the Library does
and what the program that uses the Library does.
1.
When a program is linked with a library, whether statically or using a
shared library, the combination of the two is legally speaking a combined
work, a derivative of the original library. The ordinary General Public
License therefore permits such linking only if the entire combination fits its
criteria of freedom. The Lesser General Public License permits more lax
criteria for linking other code with the library.
We call this license the “Lesser” General Public License because it does
Less to protect the user’s freedom than the ordinary General Public
License. It also provides other free software developers Less of an
advantage over competing non-free programs. These disadvantages are
the reason we use the ordinary General Public License for many libraries.
However, the Lesser license provides advantages in certain special
circumstances.
For example, on rare occasions, there may be a special need to
encourage the widest possible use of a certain library, so that it becomes
a de-facto standard. To achieve this, non-free programs must be allowed
to use the library. A more frequent case is that a free library does the
same job as widely used non-free libraries. In this case, there is little to
gain by limiting the free library to free software only, so we use the Lesser
General Public License.
In other cases, permission to use a particular library in non-free programs
enables a greater number of people to use a large body of free software.
For example, permission to use the GNU C Library in non-free programs
68
MONTAGE Owner’s Manual
This License Agreement applies to any software library or other
program which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder or
other authorized party saying it may be distributed under the terms of
this Lesser General Public License (also called “this License”). Each
licensee is addressed as “you”.
You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Library’s
complete source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided
that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an
appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact
all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any
warranty; and distribute a copy of this License along with the Library.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a
fee.
2.
You may modify your copy or copies of the Library or any portion of it,
thus forming a work based on the Library, and copy and distribute
such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above,
provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
a) The modified work must itself be a software library.
b) You must cause the files modified to carry prominent notices
stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
c) You must cause the whole of the work to be licensed at no charge
to all third parties under the terms of this License.
d) If a facility in the modified Library refers to a function or a table of
data to be supplied by an application program that uses the
facility, other than as an argument passed when the facility is
invoked, then you must make a good faith effort to ensure that, in
the event an application does not supply such function or table,
You must give prominent notice with each copy of the work that the
Library is used in it and that the Library and its use are covered by
this License. You must supply a copy of this License. If the work
during execution displays copyright notices, you must include the
copyright notice for the Library among them, as well as a reference
directing the user to the copy of this License. Also, you must do one
of these things:
the facility still operates, and performs whatever part of its
purpose remains meaningful.
(For example, a function in a library to compute square roots has a
purpose that is entirely well-defined independent of the
application. Therefore, Subsection 2d requires that any
application-supplied function or table used by this function must
be optional: if the application does not supply it, the square root
function must still compute square roots.)
a) Accompany the work with the complete corresponding machinereadable source code for the Library including whatever changes
were used in the work (which must be distributed under Sections
1 and 2 above); and, if the work is an executable linked with the
Library, with the complete machine-readable “work that uses the
Library”, as object code and/or source code, so that the user can
modify the Library and then relink to produce a modified
executable containing the modified Library. (It is understood that
the user who changes the contents of definitions files in the
Library will not necessarily be able to recompile the application to
use the modified definitions.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Library, and
can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
on the Library, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who
wrote it.
b) Use a suitable shared library mechanism for linking with the
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your
rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to exercise
the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works
based on the Library.
Library. A suitable mechanism is one that (1) uses at run time a
copy of the library already present on the user's computer system,
rather than copying library functions into the executable, and (2)
will operate properly with a modified version of the library, if the
user installs one, as long as the modified version is interfacecompatible with the version that the work was made with.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the
Library with the Library (or with a work based on the Library) on a
volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other
work under the scope of this License.
3.
c) Accompany the work with a written offer, valid for at least three
years, to give the same user the materials specified in Subsection
6a, above, for a charge no more than the cost of performing this
distribution.
You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU General Public
License instead of this License to a given copy of the Library. To do
this, you must alter all the notices that refer to this License, so that
they refer to the ordinary GNU General Public License, version 2,
instead of to this License. (If a newer version than version 2 of the
ordinary GNU General Public License has appeared, then you can
specify that version instead if you wish.) Do not make any other
change in these notices.
d) If distribution of the work is made by offering access to copy from
a designated place, offer equivalent access to copy the above
specified materials from the same place.
e) Verify that the user has already received a copy of these materials
or that you have already sent this user a copy.
For an executable, the required form of the “work that uses the
Library” must include any data and utility programs needed for
reproducing the executable from it. However, as a special exception,
the materials to be distributed need not include anything that is
normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major
components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on
which the executable runs, unless that component itself
accompanies the executable.
Once this change is made in a given copy, it is irreversible for that
copy, so the ordinary GNU General Public License applies to all
subsequent copies and derivative works made from that copy.
This option is useful when you wish to copy part of the code of the
Library into a program that is not a library.
4.
You may copy and distribute the Library (or a portion or derivative of
it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms
of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you accompany it with the
complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must
be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a
medium customarily used for software interchange.
If distribution of object code is made by offering access to copy from
a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the
source code from the same place satisfies the requirement to
distribute the source code, even though third parties are not
compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
5.
7.
A program that contains no derivative of any portion of the Library,
but is designed to work with the Library by being compiled or linked
with it, is called a “work that uses the Library”. Such a work, in
isolation, is not a derivative work of the Library, and therefore falls
outside the scope of this License.
However, linking a “work that uses the Library” with the Library
creates an executable that is a derivative of the Library (because it
contains portions of the Library), rather than a “work that uses the
library”. The executable is therefore covered by this License.
Section 6 states terms for distribution of such executables.
When a “work that uses the Library” uses material from a header file
that is part of the Library, the object code for the work may be a
derivative work of the Library even though the source code is not.
Whether this is true is especially significant if the work can be linked
without the Library, or if the work is itself a library. The threshold for
this to be true is not precisely defined by law.
If such an object file uses only numerical parameters, data structure
layouts and accessors, and small macros and small inline functions
(ten lines or less in length), then the use of the object file is
unrestricted, regardless of whether it is legally a derivative work.
(Executables containing this object code plus portions of the Library
will still fall under Section 6.)
Otherwise, if the work is a derivative of the Library, you may distribute
the object code for the work under the terms of Section 6. Any
executables containing that work also fall under Section 6, whether or
not they are linked directly with the Library itself.
6.
It may happen that this requirement contradicts the license
restrictions of other proprietary libraries that do not normally
accompany the operating system. Such a contradiction means you
cannot use both them and the Library together in an executable that
you distribute.
As an exception to the Sections above, you may also combine or link
a “work that uses the Library” with the Library to produce a work
containing portions of the Library, and distribute that work under
terms of your choice, provided that the terms permit modification of
the work for the customer's own use and reverse engineering for
debugging such modifications.
You may place library facilities that are a work based on the Library
side-by-side in a single library together with other library facilities not
covered by this License, and distribute such a combined library,
provided that the separate distribution of the work based on the
Library and of the other library facilities is otherwise permitted, and
provided that you do these two things:
a) Accompany the combined library with a copy of the same work
based on the Library, uncombined with any other library facilities.
This must be distributed under the terms of the Sections above.
b) Give prominent notice with the combined library of the fact that
part of it is a work based on the Library, and explaining where to
find the accompanying uncombined form of the same work.
8.
You may not copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or distribute the
Library except as expressly provided under this License. Any
attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or distribute
the Library is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under
this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights,
from you under this License will not have their licenses terminated so
long as such parties remain in full compliance.
9.
You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
distribute the Library or its derivative works. These actions are
prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
modifying or distributing the Library (or any work based on the
Library), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the
Library or works based on it.
10. Each time you redistribute the Library (or any work based on the
Library), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
original licensor to copy, distribute, link with or modify the Library
subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any
further restrictions on the recipients’ exercise of the rights granted
herein. You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third
parties with this License.

If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot
distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence
you may not distribute the Library at all. For example, if a patent
license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Library by all
those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then the
only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain
entirely from distribution of the Library.
