Synth Glossary

A means of generating a control signal based on how much pressure is applied to the keys of a MIDI keyboard. Most instruments that support this do not have independent pressure sensing for all keys, but rather detect the overall pressure by means of a sensing strip running beneath the keys. Aftertouch may be used to control such functions as vibrato depth, filter brightness, loudness and so on....


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
