Yamaha CS-80 Synthesizer Sound Selection Circuit Analysis

video by Bell Tone Synth Works

"I had the idea to do some videos breaking down how specific circuits or sections from different vintage synths work in step-by-step detail, and here's my first one, about how preset, memory, and panel sound selection works in the notorious/legendary Yamaha CS-80.

This video is meant to be more 'educational' than 'fun' and if you personally don't think it's fun (or musical) enough, that's OK!
It also requires at least a basic understanding of a few key electronics theory concepts to follow.

If you'd like to read a written version of this explanation and look at the diagrams/schematics in more detail, you can find it on our blog here:​"
