Issue 311 of Future Music is on sale now

We've two very different - but equally exciting - synthesizers on the cover this month. On the one hand, we're celebrating the return of a bonafide icon, in the shape of Moog's faithfully recreated and reissued Model D. Next to that we've Yamaha's new, all-singing, all-dancing flagship instrument Montage.

How do both fare though? Does the Model D preserve the sound and feel of an analogue classic? Will the Montage become your new studio workhorse? Find out as both hit the FM test bench.
