Time machine: YAMAHA CS-10 Analog Synthesizer 1977

April 14, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

The YAMAHA CS-10 came out 1977. It is a monophonic synthesizer equipped with 1 VCO, 1 multimode resonant filter (highpass, lowpass, bandpass, but self oscillating of the filter is not possible – why?), 1 LFO, 1 noise generator, 2 envelopes. It also has an external signal input. This is great for processing signals – a bit like Korg MS-20 (I did this with a Roland TR-606 in the video). The LFO is very fast. It has CV and trigger inputs/outputs.

A nice little synth with some nice sounds!

“I played the CS-10 along with a Roland DEP-5 (delay) and a Lexicon MPX-500 (reverb).”
