Up for sale, a 1980s Yamaha CS01 Micro Monophonic Synthesizer in near mint condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original box. The CS01 is a portable monophonic synth that offers an extensive range of voice parameters, a 32-key keyboard, Pitch and Modulation wheels, and a unique Breath Control feature. The synth is capable of surprisingly fat and squishy bass sounds, with plenty of distinctly ‘80s dystopian shades of edgy waveform cut.
The Breath Control system lets you control the VCA and VCF using your breath via an optional (not included) Yamaha Breath Controller for a broad range of hands-free, expressive control. Other controls include Speed for the LFO section, Glissando, Pitch, Feet, Wave, and PWN Speed for the VCO section, Frequency Cutoff, Resonance, and EQ Depth for the VCF section, EG Depth for the VCA section, and Attack Time, Decay Time, Sustain Level, and Release Time for the EG section.
A built-in speaker is included, as well as Phones and Line Out 1/4“ jacks. The keyboard can run on six AA batteries or AC adapter (not included). Strap buttons are provided for upright playing possibilities.
The original box is included.
