PreorderAnalog synthesizer: Simple control, Colorful sounds, Massive dynamics.
With the legendary Yamaha Control Synthesizer series, introduced in 1976, music history was written by artists like Vangelis, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson. In keeping with tradition, the reface CS unites simple handling and creative sounds with a massive dynamic. But the concept was not to clone a monophonic synthesizer: The polyphonic tone generator with 8 voices and 5 oscillator types (multi saw, pulse, oscillator sync, ring modulation, frequency modulation) offers a rich bandwidth of exciting sounds from analogue to digital. All parameters are changeable intuitively using sliders.
Analog Physical Modeling Engine with multiple synthesis and oscillator types
Each oscillator type has flexible LFO and ADSR routing plus unique Texture and Mod controls that work as follows:
Onboard effects processor with five types add depth to your sound
The effect types are: OFF (effect bypass,) Delay, VCM Phaser, VCM Chorus/Flanger and Distortion
8-note polyphony allows complex chords and pads or switch to mono Mode for fat synth bass or solo leads
Texture, control adds sub-oscillator
Mod, layers multiple sawtooth waves
Texture, changes pitch of 2nd square wave
Mod, change pulse width
Texture, changes pitch and tone of OSC2
Mod, sets pitch change amount
Texture, changes pitch of OSC1
Mod, changes pitch of OSC2
Texture, sets Modulation amount
Mod, changes pitch of the Modulator
