SirJeff's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Fun and effective"

Yamaha CS01 Mark II
The basis of subtractive synthesis with a few limitations: limited 1VCO VCA


Simpler you die. No wacky sound research but its simplicity keeps us all dispersion cotonnant us the basics of analogy ... and it is sometimes good.
Too bad for MIDI


Sounding analog sounds and warm. I love his bass and smile every time I listen to when looking from which they emerge: this kind of ridiculous plastic tip that really worth to see.
I'm not going to apologize for its sound but in any case it does the job in the lead bass and some basic effects.
I love the sampler and it often serves as my foundation


How long have you use it?
What is the particular feature you like best and least?
+ Sound, ease side toy
- Fragile, clean regularly (bomb contact), no midi
Have you tried many other models before buying it?
juno106 yes, jupiter, TB303, MC202, MS20 ...
How would you rate the quality / price?
difficult to judge, it is a favorite toy, but 200 € without noon he must already have a heart collector
With experience, you do again this choice? ...
It gave me on another purchase, I do not know if I achetterai but in any case it is certain that I will keep for the direct side.
Its limitations for me are incentives to create.

Everything has already been said ...


Ultra simple, well to start when you have ten years (if! If! At the time ...)


Sounds amazing for such a small machine given free to purchasers of a DX7 nine in the mid 80s.


Hello to all the community AF!

I will add nothing technically but just one copy in perfect condition just left on a popular auction site online for 130 euros. It finally returns to earth, sorry for those who speculate on the naivete of small musicos in need of "vintage"! I wait to see the MS20 and JP4 back to other dimensions they should never have to leave now!

Basic additive synthesis


Is really a breath controller, it really sounds like a wind instrument
Controlling the VCO and VCA even in gst


Keyboard batteries / adapted with good mono output
very practical and expressive
monophonic, although sr

nan3200's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" its premium anyway!"

Yamaha CS01 Mark II
touches playable.
2.5 octaves
No memory, no presets, no effects!
sounds that are not editable because memories lol

breath control, if you find one, it's funny.

plug it into a real amp, the speaker integrates a little pity, but has the merit to exist.


very simple but very effective!

4 waveforms, very low down in grave, the sound is killer.
the manual explains some basic sounds, damn good!


sounds are purely techno! oddly they are very expressive despite the total lack of control type velocity, aftertouch, ....

killer bass are obtained on this model II, the resonance is adjustable, with the only difference I. but size!

a collector, but very premium, I saw him pass lyt i was little over 300 euros!
Stop the delirium, I paid 150 (1000francs), 20 years ago!
even with the scarcity, do not exaggerate!


I have 2 models, it's too fun, but sampling at its destination if you want to do the scene with its sounds.
rather strong, they accompanied me everywhere, and continue to serve!

midifient even the guys!
the pictures are not very beautiful, but they date, CS01 and CS01 as II.
