Yamaha reface CS Synth

We've been dying to tell you about this! reface CS takes inspiration from our legendary CS80 and other CS Control Synthesizers and packs it into a mini - yet still very playable - portable synthesizer. It sounds huge, is great fun and very useable at home, on stage, in the studio, on the bus, in a café, on the beach...

With the legendary Yamaha Control Synthesizer series, introduced in 1976, music history was written by artists like Vangelis, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson. In keeping with tradition, the reface CS unites simple handling and creative sounds with a massive dynamic. But the concept was not to clone a monophonic synthesizer: The polyphonic tone generator with 8 voices and 5 oscillator types (multi saw, pulse, oscillator sync, ring modulation, frequency modulation) offers a rich bandwidth of exciting sounds from analogue to digital. All parameters are changeable intuitively using sliders.

Analog Physical Modeling Engine with multiple synthesis and oscillator types
Each oscillator type has flexible LFO and ADSR routing plus unique Texture and Mod controls that work as follows:

Onboard effects processor with five types add depth to your sound
The effect types are: OFF (effect bypass,) Delay, VCM Phaser, VCM Chorus/Flanger and Distortion
8-note polyphony allows complex chords and pads or switch to mono Mode for fat synth bass or solo leads
