I just checked out the Yamaha CS-5 and I have to admit at first it was a bit of a challenge to get a pleasing sound out of it and it was slightly intimidating to use. I was in a dimly lit studio room though, so it was kind of hard to see what I was doing. This would also be the first time I've played with an analog mono synth as well. I was there for maybe only 20 minutes, so barely got into the thing, but towards the end I got the feel for it. I didn't have the money on hand though so, I'll have to pick it up later. The LFO is pretty sweet I must say and got some nice deep growly bass out of it. I figure since it's cheaper then market value, I might as well pick it up and if I get tired of it I'll at least break even. Thanks for the help guys.
