Synth Glossary

Most filters can emphasize the frequencies just before those that are reduced in volume. Resonance is the degree of emphasis that occurs. It makes the filter much more audible and gives it character - it would otherwise sound like just altering the equalisation - and is the foundation of the acid sound....


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
