Synth Glossary

Control input:
An input into part of the synthesizer that allows that bit to be modulated by another part of the synth. For example there is a control input in the amplifier which controls the level of amplification. If a very slow sine wave (an LFO) is patched into this input then the sound will slowly get louder and quieter. If an LFO was patched into the control input of the oscillator instead, then the sound would go higher and lower in pitch....

Cs-10
The CS-10 is a wonderful synthesizer. The original sound is warm and nice. It's very easy to use, you have every parameter 'hands on' with knobs (22, excuding volume) and switches (8). You could acctually see the sound travels at the panel of the CS-10 :-) It has CV/Gate connections (Key volt in&out, Trigger in&out). Note that this (as the other CS's from Yamaha and old Korg's) uses Hz/Volt triggering. And a very useful external in, that you could use to patch all kinds of sounds trough. You also have two sliders for Portamento and Pitch Bend. These two are not in use when you have the CS-10 controlled via CV/Gate. The Pitch Bend slides one octave. The VCF has three modes. High, Band and Low-pas
