"Heyja :-) It was about time for a new Live Jam. So - here it is ;-) This time with the Elektron Analog Rytm and the Roland System-1 - which i actually "play" live in this track. Enjoy! :-)

Analog Rytm does the Drums, Bass and the rest of the melodic stuff (as well as the Noise - literally :-D) and the System-1 delivers the Pad which i play live. No further editing in the DAW except for some Multiband Compression and Limiting.

If you like this track and if you want to support me, you can buy it in High Quality here:

Thank you and: All the best,

Some pics of the inside below.

"The CS series sounds amazing and very different from other vintage synths—certainly the greatest Japanese analog poly synths of all time. Even though its brother the CS80 is more highly prized, the CS60 has the same voice and packs nearly all the same functions in a big but not huge package.

This CS60 is in excellent+ condition inside and out. All functions were recently tested and everything checks out: all knobs work and sound incredible including the ribbon-controller, ring modulator and aftertouch.

There is a knick in the wood on the back panel about 1/8" and a few small scuffs to the tolex, but overall superb condition for it's age. This CS60 hasn't been moved much and has had a pampered life in a studio. Comes with cover and original Yamaha dust cloth. No legs. Weighs 46kg (102 lbs). Original US 3-prong cord(120v)."
