That cool little ledge was actually originally designed for the SU-10 phrase sampler as they were released at about the same time. Though it's really handy now that there are a lot of things about that size that people use these days. 8-)

I got one of these about 9 or 8 years ago for £50, it had a missing cut-off knob which I got from Yamaha for about £2 and then sold it for a lot more and got a Korg M1...I quite liked the CS-1X
The M1 sounded better but I hated the waves in it and the lack of a resonant LPF
The AN-1X on the other hand.....ROCKS!

Loving your livingroom setup :-)

I did a simmilar thing a few days ago
Yes, presets that I tweaked a bit. Actually mine is missing the data knob but that should be an easy fix. Cool that you like the setup, it works out great -for now (-;

You are the same vinyl junkie from youtube? If so, I really dig your work! Especially the house tracks with the MPC!
Yea that's me, thanks :-)

The CS-1X shape always reminded me of the Nord Lead 1 keyboard...I used the little ledge to support a Micro Modular on my CS.
Might have to pick another up if I see one cheap at some point...reminded me what a cool little synth it is, capable of some nice sounds

i recall the 909 kit on the CS-1x sounded quite good. it was highly compressed and had a slight "plasticky" quality to the sound. those sounds sat in a mix really well and didn't need a lot of work to get 'em sounding right. i remember occasionally saying to myself, "wow these sound better than my real 909" :lol:

I have a CS1x and love it, its quick and nasty.

I also have the an1x and rm1x, and a stylophone that sits very nicely on that ledge :)
