    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

    SOUNDS

    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!

    OVERALL OPINION

    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

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

    UTILIZATION

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

    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)

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

    UTILIZATION

    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

    SOUNDS

    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.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Finally, for 1500 francs can hardly complain.

    It is a small keyboard sounds analog furious seen it do, play a pitched notes and then by using the filter, you tell me the news.

    UTILIZATION

    All very simple interface to the touch.

    SOUNDS

    The sounds are hot breath of the machine is extrordinaire, I used only for the drum'n'bass but I also use the pink noise in all my productions.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Value, it does not fake it private, no regrets, the price argus seems a bit expensive but for a mini keyboard as intuitive ...

    Monophonic analogue keyboard dowry trs trs good filters.

    UTILIZATION

    Its simplicity is an advantage because even if it is not known programmable quickly how to find the sound you want.
    Just to test, everything is under the fingers, it happens in the manual.

    SOUNDS

    Extra for a synth of this size.
    Largely at the sound of prdcesseurs SERIES CS.
    The bass is out of this world and can be made worthy of the greatest lead analog.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Its main asset is its compactness.

    SOUNDS

    If we rfre the speaker included, we do not have all the dynamics, color and timbre of the little monster. The filter is quite effective. Just a minor complaint at the waveform triangle possde less dynamic than the rest. But that's normal, it's even mathmatique.

    I use it to the subs gnrer of Drum 'n Bass that I resample to keep the movement I gnre on the filters (and yes, it dates from 1982 so no automation, step motion etc.).

    The sound of Lead are typically electro 80.

    Rare are the machines that you can bring down the toilet to have fun until we took you to the beat on the door asking you to leave the place, I am sure, will be hot .. trs .

    Finally, I did not test the breath control as it ncessite a BC1: a module that is placed in the mouth to the breath that gnrer module while the VCF or VCA. Two knobs allow you to change the intensity. But why not test a microphone or any other jack in between 6.35 to modulate the position of your breath? A test

    In any case, it is a synthtiseur whose quality sound will delight fans of analogue sounds.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For many months I possde this wonder, I never get tired to stand between profane hands. The IMMEDIATE raction is: if at first we Whereas this machine as a toy, it was quickly surprised by its possibilities.

    Personally, I have just a little low for BMOL RESOLUTION of glide (glissando), which gives strange effects when trs lev. But there again it is an opinion that not many people share, to the extent that this pleases some. L is still the order of the subjective.

    Excellent qualitprix, trs good battery life with a small footprint.
    But what you ask for?

    3 octaves, all plastic monophonic. It seems very fragile anyway.
    hp integrated.
    small keyboard not very practical.

    UTILIZATION

    very simple but also very limited. It almost always falls on the same CS01.

    SOUNDS

    This is an analog sound is not so bad but we are still far from the synths to a single tilt just a bit more expensive.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Initially, the CS01 was sold as a toy, see comes with the DX7 when it came out. Over time its manufacture very cheap because it accumulates problems. Including sliders creaking.

    You already know all about the features of this keyboard.

    Except maybe that one can connect a passive volume pedal (what a knob) with a minijack adapter in Breath Control: It works!

    Cons by the CV and reinjected (from 0V to-9) is combined with the adjustment of the cutoff, modulation filter, and the amount of sustain when the envelope is injected into the filter. (Pfff!! Not understand!)

    In short, if these other parameters are not or at least low enough, it will not work!

    Well, nothing with this entry, it could also connect a small cobbled LFO (how atari punk console with a 555)

    It has few possibilities of hacking, without necessarily disassembling.

    UTILIZATION

    It's very simple to use, you push a slider and it sounds!
    It's just unfortunate that there are not a true glide, an arpeggiator, a second VCO (COD?) Detune and a tape echo!

    SOUNDS

    Good sound level is too deadly. I could play for hours. Between the low fat good for TB 303, small reasons to Jamiroquai funny (thank you glissando), good analog sounds very close to his older brother (CS80), the mounted filter that sends in the air, c ' is great!

    It's a whole range of sounds that I had not in hardware!

    I intend Moisten with a kit specially designed for highlyliquid.
    There are also other mods on the internet to control the filter resonance to self-oscillation!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had it yesterday.

    Seriously a little demo.

    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.

    UTILIZATION

    very simple but very effective!

    4 waveforms, very low down in grave, the sound is killer.

    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!

    SOUNDS

    Its only flaw is its resonant non-adjustable, just a switch on / off.


    OVERALL OPINION

    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.
    I bought in May 1989 to the current equivalent of 30 euros!
