manual abstract

Following the important precautions below will help ensure you many years of trouble free use from your CS1x. LOCATION • In order to avoid causing serious damage to the CS1x, do not expose it to direct sunlight, high temperatures, excessive humidity, excessive dust or strong vibration. • Always place the CS1x on a solid surface such as a keyboard stand or a sturdy table or desk. POWER SUPPLY • Turn the power switch off when the CS1x is not in use. • Use only the supplied PA-3B or an equivalent AC power adaptor. Use of an incompatible adaptor may result in irreparable damage to the CS1x, and could even pose a serious shock hazard. • The power adaptor should be unplugged from the AC outlet if the CS1x is not to be used for an extended period of time. • Unplug the CS1x during electrical storms. • Avoid plugging the CS1x into the same AC outlet as appliances with high power consumption such as electric heaters or ovens. Also avoid using multiple-plug adapters since these can result in reduced sound quality and possibly even damage to the instrument. UNPLUG ALL INSTRUMENTS WHEN MAKING CONNECTIONS • To avoid causing damage to the CS1x and other devices to which it is connected, such as a sound system or MIDI instruments, turn off the power and unplug all related devices prior to connecting or disconnecting audio and MIDI cables. ELECTRICAL INTERFERENCE • Avoid using the CS1x near televisions, radios or other devices which generate electromagnetic fields, since this may cause the CS1x to malfunction, and possibly generate interference noise in the other devices. BACK-UP BATTERY • The CS1x contains a special long-life battery that retains the contents of its User memory when the power is turned off. The back-up battery should last for several years. When it needs to be replaced, the message "Battery Low" will appear in the display when the power is turned on. When this happens, have the backup battery replaced by qualified Yamaha service personnel. Do not attempt to replace the backup battery yourself. HANDLING AND TRANSPORT • Always handle the CS1x with care. Physical shocks caused by dropping, bumping, or placing heavy objects on it can result in serious damage to the CS1x. • Never apply excessive force to the controls, connectors or other parts. • Disconnect all cables before moving the CS1x. Always unplug cables by gripping the plug firmly, and not by pulling on the cable. CLEANING • Never use chemical solvents or thinners to clean the CS1x, since these will damage the finish or dull the keys. Wipe the instrument clean with a soft, dry cloth. If necessary, use a soft, clean cloth slightly moistened with a diluted, mild detergent. Then wipe the instrument thoroughly with a dry cloth. • Avoid placing vinyl objects on top of the instrument, since vinyl can stick to and discolor the surface. DATA BACKUP • Yamaha recommends that you regularly save your music data using an external MIDI data storage device such as the Yamaha MDF2 MIDI Data Filer. Yamaha cannot be held responsible for the accidental loss of CS1x data. SERVICE AND MODIFICATION • The CS1x contains no user serviceable parts, so never open the case or tamper with the internal circuitry in any way. Doing so may result in electrical shock or damage to the instrument. Refer all servicing to qualified Yamaha service personnel. IMPORTANT NOTE Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage to the CS1x resulting from improper handling or operation, or for the accidental loss of CS1x data.

Great, in fact. You could just reach out and grab it. Turn it left. And turn it right. Interact with it in realtime. And there were knobs of all kinds. Knobs for changing the attack and release times of a sound. Knobs for setting the cutoff filter and resonance. And knobs for controlling many other aspects of analog synthesizer sounds. By twisting a knob one way and another, a vast, practically endless variety of electronic sounds could be called forth. Fat sounds. Strange sounds. Beautiful sounds. Magical sounds. It was the 1960s, and such was the power of the knob that music was changed forever. And the term synthesizer became a household word. But the knob was not perfect… From the start the knob was brilliant and easy to grasp. It put the musician in complete control of the sound. And opened up a whole new world of sonic exploration. It was the 1970s, and some of the greatest recordings in music history were being made. Analog "synths" were finding their way into the stages, studios and professional composing suites of the world. But as simple, straightforward and powerful as analog synths wer...
