YAMAHA CS-40M - Ambient Chillout Jam | Analog Synth Demo


"Yamaha CS-40M analog synthesizer demo featuring an ambient chillout jam and music. This Yamaha CS-40M demo features a repeating motif as I adjust filter envelope & LFO settings in a live improvisation. Reverb/delay effects from Source Audio Ventris pedal.

I was improvising on the CS-40M one night and came up with this lead-style sound, consisting of one oscillator in a very low register and the other oscillator in a higher footage. The result was this Yamaha CS-40M patch that starts out mellow and then builds into a more brassy tone as the filter settings are adjusted.

LFO modulation was used to create movement in the filter, and I improvise on the main riff throughout. In this demo I also paired the CS-40M with the Source Audio Ventris pedal, which created a cool rhythmic reverb and delay pattern in the background.

The Yamaha CS-40M is a vintage 2-voice analog synthesizer from 1979-1986 with plenty of modulation capabilities. In this synth demo I wanted to showcase the nice heavy bottom end, brassy overtones and power this synth is capable of. Hope you enjoy this Yamaha CS-40M demo and ambient chillout jam."
