The CS-5 synthesizer is ideal for a wide variety of applications. It can serve as a beginner´s instrument, and it can equally well be used as a versatile solo keyboard

The CS-5 front panel is divided in blocks of effects such as

This block controls the external input signal

Voltage Controlled Oscilator block to control the pitch and generate square waves and sawtooth waves as sound sources

This block consists of a very low frequency oscillator to modulate the VCO,VCF and VCA blocks

Sliding control to change the pitch manually during performance

This section selects the sound sources sent to the VCF and serves to adjust the levels

Voltage controlled filter block. This block produces the tone color by controlling the harmonic structure of the sound source which in turn is governed by the cut-off frequency of the filter. Control voltages are given by the CUT OFF FREQ knob, by the envelope set in the EG block, etc.

Voltage controlled amplifier block.
This block controls the volume according to the envelope set by the EG block and other factors
