The Yamaha Reface CS is an 8-note polyphonic analog modeling synth with 37-key mobile mini keyboard with 5 vintage synth types, and onboard effects. It features five unique oscillator types and powerful and intuitive control. Simple control, complex sound, endless possibilities.
5 vintage synth types
Controller pedal input
Built-in stereo speakers
Dual line outputs
Multi-saw: Multi Saw produces a typical synthesizer sound on the basis of sawtooth waveforms
The term "Multi" stands for the possibility to layer multiple waveforms
Pulse: Produces a basic synthesizer voice by using square waves, two square waves with different pitches can be layered to make the sound more complex
OSC Sync: Produces voices having two oscillators (OSC1 and OSC2), with OSC2 locked in sync with OSC1, intense harmonics can be generated by changing the pitch and tone of OSC2, making it possible to create highly distinctive, dazzling sounds
Ring Mod: Produces voices by multiplying the signals from two oscillators (OSC1 and OSC2), metallic-sounding voices with no distinct pitch can be created by changing the pitches of the oscillators
FM: Produces voices having two oscillators (OSC1 and OSC2), with the frequency of OSC1 modulated by OSC2, this makes it possible to create voices with intense harmonics such as those of the Yamaha DX7 and other FM synthesizers
LFO: The [DEPTH] and [SPEED] sliders control modulation speed and intensity. In addition to typical LFO uses, you can create interesting sound effects using extreme settings. So if you want get back at your motorcycle-driving neighbors, try out the following example!
EG: EG/FEG slider determines how much the Envelope affects Amplitude or Filter. The "zero" position (AEG) means the Envelope only affects Amplitude. Asthe slider is moved upwards, the more influence the Envelope has on the Filter. In the middle position the effect on Filter and Amplitude is the same. The envelope (EG) is set by the ADSR principle (Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release) with four sliders. Again, the range of values is from 0 to 127.
FILTER: reface CS is equipped with a resonant low-pass Filter (18 db). The Cutoff slider adjusts the Filter from follow closed (0) to wide open (127) while the Resonance slider adds harmonics at the Cutoff point. The filter can even self-oscillate creating different kinds of synth sound.
EFFECT: The onboard effects processor features five effect types to add depth to your sound.
Use the Type slider to select the desired effect. Depth determines the effect's intensity (also known as "Wet/Dry"). The Phaser and Chorus/Flanger are powered by Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) technology.
PORTAMENTO: The reface CS Portamento slider has two functions. It controls the typical Portamento effect: switching reface to 8-note polyphonic to 1-note monophonic and controlling Portamento time in monophonic mode.
1. One vintage king is probably the best place to buy any gear they keep you updated, mine wasn’t in stock for probably 7 months and they would constantly reach out to keep me updated and shipped in perfect condition. Plus their customer service is real and amazingly responsive.
2. The CS is probably the best reface in the series genius the CP! I’ve had it for months and still can make new sounds it’s quality made keys feel good sound is great and most of the criticism just don’t add up once your recording and paying with this love it.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!
I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!
In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.
This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.
Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.
You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!
I would recommend Vintage King to any one looking for top-class gear, unbeatable customer service and the best prices on the map!
My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
Thanks for your great service and getting this out today. You guys really are the Kings!
