YAMAHA CS-70M analog synthesizer - Sounds & patches 【SYNTH DEMO】

"Yamaha CS-70M analog synthesizer demo. Playing sounds and patches on vintage CS 70M analog synth from Yamaha including sequencer, pads and LFO tweaks.

The Yamaha CS70M is a classic dual-channel, 6-voice polyphonic synthesizer and the last analog synth from Yamaha in the early 1980s. Although it came after the legendary Yamaha CS-50, CS-60 and CS-80 synths, the CS-70M has its own distinct tone, sounds and sonic character.

The Yamaha CS-70M has 2 oscillators per voice for a total of 12 VCOs. It also features 2 LFOs, a multimode filter (LPF/BPF/HPF), envelopes for VCF and VCA, ring modulator, chorus and tremolo effects, a 4-track real-time and polyphonic step sequencer, patch memory, 61 keys with aftertouch, and autotune.

IMO, the Yamaha CS-70M synthesizer is a beautiful instrument. It is a large and powerful synth that has a very earthy, dusty and nostalgic tone to it which can often take on acoustic/wood sound qualities.

The Yamaha CS-70M is also a very rare synth and often commands very high prices on the second hand market. Nontheless, if you have the chance to obtain a Yamaha CS-70M, I would not hesitate. It is a beautiful synth in its own right.

This Yamaha CS-70M synthesizer demo was filmed at the Vintage Synthesizer Museum in Oakland, CA. Visit them at"
