ink's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" oh what a dub bass!"

Yamaha CS01
Monophonic analog Synthesizer, 2 octave and a half.
12dB/oct low pass, not adjustable resonance (on / off) filter ADSR envelope
tiangle wave, sawtooth, pulse width, square (the best!) and noise.
tuning of + / - one semitone
assignable modulation wheel to pitch or filter
pitch bend, glide
integrated mini keys and HP
no midi or CV or audio input
option breathe controller
can work on battery
red or gray but the mêm sound (I hit them!)


config extremely simple, one button per function ...
small screw inside for calibration of the oscillator and resonance filter (it's always good to know!)


Typed and warm sound. I loved her the time that I've owned!
Used to me to make digital dub (80's style, dougie wardrop, King Jammys ...)
Wicked bassline!


I do not regret having sold this synth, given the fragility of minitouches, wear knobs (I bought OCCAZ ')
If you want this particular sound, bought it. Otherwise, I think it is better to turn to a new and modern analog synth (like a Minibrute or a small Vermona) for reasons of strength, value for money and features (for a CS01 OCCAZ is to € 200/300 which is expensive!)
In any case, the format is fun and the inimitable sound, but I still prefer my MiniBrute, more comprehensive and just as easy

Minga's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A rating for this amazing toy vintage"

Yamaha CS01
Only 2.5 octaves, and monophonic (that is his biggest default).
With 2 Fasteners type guitar straps ... ;-)


There's no more simple: you move the faders and have fun right away to create sounds.


The aftertouch, y'en not. What amazes me is that some even "midifier" with this keyboard kit "UMR2" of Highly Liquid and even found a wiring diagram for CS01 Special! (Http://forum.highlyliquid.com/showthread.php?t=824)


I used 20 years ago. I had exchanged against a polyphonic keyboard that Casio is worthless today, it ...
With experience, not only I would do this choice, but I would buy several more for resale, given its current rating! ;-)

graal7's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Yamaha CS01
Anecdote little mono synth a mini keyboard
no preset
Wind has a controller which acts directly on the sound


Yamaha launches this little mono synth easy to use
which allows to understand the operation of a synth.
especially against a korg ms 20 of the era


The sounds are especially good at using a good amp with reverb and delay, if possible
by the receiver against his internal speaker is poor.


Finally, for 1500 francs can hardly complain.

Gargo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Yamaha CS01
Mini keyboard yamahah
a headphone output, line out and that's it
A VCO, 1VCF, 1VCA, breath control, pitch bend and modulation
gives that little mono analog sound more or less friendly ...


Pseudo faders that is the magic of analog is direct


Bah, its noise level depends, prepared a good tube preamp and a good effect section and you will be ready pushed this little beast in the last stronghold!
the bass sounds good, the lead can be majestic ...
pr is the perfect synthesis of learning sound synthesis!


It is in my home studio for at least 2 years
Certainly this is not the best of its category analogue but many are searching peeut get something interesting ...
of course it's my little darling, I think not separated me from it!
