"Another one from the end of February 2024. One oscillator is set to SEQ and the other to KBD, so you hear a droning note under an 8-step sequence from the onboard sequencer. At 1:48 I start playing some notes and you can hear the portamento. Mostly this video demonstrates the filters."

"Insane. The Yamaha CS-30 is an animal. The filter, the oscillators, all those envelopes, all that modulation—it sounds amazing, wild. And it’s an ecosystem. Self contained, with its own sequencer, LFO, headphone output, keyboard; flip a switch to transpose your 8-step sequence, flip another to drone, drone, drone, flip a switch to change envelopes. But it also has external audio in to the filter, external control voltages in and out, sequencer pitch and gate out, and so on. So on! So on!

Solo leads, cellos, vocal formant and vowel, alien bells, whatever, it’s versatile.

It tracks Hz/v for all you Korg MS-10, 20, 50 folks, all you thyratron-loving Zerosum Inertia folks, Metasonix folks.

Very nice ergonomics. Good angle to the controls. Large knobs and faders.

This one has been around here for a few years, but had a problem with the keyboard glitching. It was just serviced and is now working great, plus it has been changed to operate on North American power."
