Physical modelling engine with five oscillators
The Yamaha CS synthesizer captures the essence of vintage synths, re-creating the sound and style in extreme detail. At the core the Yamaha CS is the analog physical modelling sound engine with multiple synth and oscillator types. In total, the CS boasts five different oscillators types, providing maximum versatility when it comes to creating sounds.
The oscillators are comprised of: Multi-saw, Pulse, OSC Sync, Ring Mod and FM waveforms. This range of waveforms allows you create virtually any sound you can think of from natural-sounding brass to cutting-edge leads and pads. The oscillators boasts both texture and modulation parameters for changing the way the waveform performs, switching the style and tone of your chosen waveform.
Intuitive controls and faders
The 37-note keybed provides natural and expressive playability, similar to higher-end synthesizers. It provides you with 8-notes of polyphony as a virtual analog synths. The powerful and intuitive control section boasts a range of retro-style faders for adjusting tempo, octave, volume, oscillation, filters and more. It even features a convenient pitch bend switch that reverts to the centre position when not in use. The sound control section is comprised of LFO, EG, Filter, Effect and Portamento controls. It also includes a monophonic mode for creating fat basses or solo leads.
