All the right features are there. I feel the sampling is a little extraneous. The keys are nice and bouncy although a little narrow. Plenty of presets and sound control. Having the plug in board option is nice too.

Price paid

$950/used circa 2001


Ehhhh.... it's a tad confusing. The submenus can be a bit tedious at time searching for the right paramater. Most parameters have a knob on the front panel, thankfully, so you only rarely have to dive under the hood.

Built like a brick shit house. It's pretty heavy and would probably break if you dropped it from a high distance but it can put up with a good beating.


The sound quality is great. The presets seem mainly focused on the trance genre which is why I bought it.. Effects are useable but I'm suce a fan of outboard and plug in effects I usually keep the synth as dry as possible.


Bottom line: I love this synth for the trance/house/techno sounds I can get out of it. Piercing highs, warm pads, rumbling lows and everything in between. It's my main MIDI controller and I use with a wide variety of soft synths also. I've actually sold a few synths just to hang on to this one. I will probably buy some old school analog synths soon to round out my collection but the CS6x is the last VA synth I will buy for a long time.
