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
