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
...soft synths...now 5 years later realized how crap they are. I now have: SE-1X SE-1 Korg MonoPoly Yamaha CS-30 Yamaha CS-5 Crumar String Synth Emus Esi-2000 stupidly sold my E-64 to by Virtual Emualator sampler which is the worst sampler ever!!!) Akai S-950 for that 12 bit sound Electrix Warp Factory Vocoder
