Shape your sound exactly the way you want it. The Yamaha CS6x provides a wealth of
assignable knobs, as well as 2 Programmable or morphable scenes, giving you
total real-time control over voice creation.
The Yamaha CS6x uses the now standard 3.3V smart media cards. Phrase sample clips,
SMF sequences and other synthesizer data can be conveniently stored on huge capacity
SmartMedia cards, thus giving you the advantage of a large storage capacity without
the bulk and high cost associated with traditional memory cards. 4, 8, 16, and 32MB
cards are supported, and 3.3V SmartMedia unlike the 5V variety favoured by certain
A3000/EX7 style effects processing taken a whole stage further with a whole
new set of cool algorithms that will make your ears bleed with ecstasy. Effects
that make those on the EX5 and A3000 seem old hat.
Filters that just don't exist on the other CS synths
A totally new CS filter section with BPF, 4 Pole , 3 Pole, 2 Pole, and Hi-pass,
Low pass 24db analogue style, Lpf 18 soft, low pass 6dB, high pass 12, 24 and 12,
Bpf 6, and 12, BPF wide, BEF 6.
Bit by Bit
Drop your bit depth on the output using our bit depth effect down to as low as 4
bit for some real grunge. Supreb way to simulate some of the older keyboards loved so
much by the underground dance market.
If you like Trance, this is the machine for you. Voiced extensively in the UK and Germany
by some leading exponents in the field of trance music. The Yamaha CS6x is a worthy
successor to the Jupiter's, TB's , Wavestations and Juno's loved by trance musicians.
Some of the sounds can take minutes to evolve and move fully through their cycles.
Load in user samples, or record them via the AD inputs (with effects if required)
and treat them via the massive amounts of synth power onboard. Beat remixing makes
life easier than ever, and up to 256 loops can sit in the Yamaha CS6x at the same time.
128 Arpeggio types with filter arpeggiation options to create some really off
the wall sounds. Again, killer for trance music.
The Yamaha CS6x's pair of expansion slots allow for easy installation of any two
of Yamaha's PLG line of Modular Synthesis Plug-in Expansion boards. Essentially a
complete synthesizer on one card, each plug-in board can add both polyphony and new
synthesis technologies to the CS6x.
