The YAMAHA CS-5 came out 1978. It is a monophonic synthesizer equipped with 1 VCO, 1 multimode resonant filter (highpass, lowpass, bandpass), 1 LFO, 1 noise generator, 1 envelope. It also has an external signal input. This is great for processing signals - a bit like Korg MS-20. The LFO is very fast. It has CV and trigger inputs/outputs.
The CS-5 has the S&H waveform in the LFO, which the CS-10 does not have. This is very important to produce great FX sounds! On the other hand the CS-5 has only 1 envelope.
A nice little synth with some great sounds! It sounds completely different from any other synths at its time (Korg, Roland, Moog, ARP...)
I played the CS-5 along with a Roland DEP-5 (delay) and a Lexicon MPX-500 (reverb).
