Honestly how much do you expect a single DSP to do? Especially on a fairly low priced keyboard, christ it doesn't make coffee either but is it really that big of a problem.. Some people would shoot holes in a gold barrell -- learn to work within limitations -- that's the key to genius.

Review: Good board, mine went when I got an RM1X, due to space concerns. It's not perfect but it's certainly flexible and even shockingly intuitive. But as always got to hate Yamaha's manual. Stop getting Japanese guys with a serious lack of memory or cohesion that speak a weird pseudoenglish commonly know as techspeakengrish. Just experiment -- you won't be dissapointed. -Nubey

I am realizing that many of you writing reviews have never even hooked it up to a computer to do sequencing. If you had, you would notice the BLATANT OMMISION OF EFFECTS IN PERFORMANCE MODE! I cant believe that yamaha cheaped out on this all-important issue. The sounds are great, but they sound dry as hell when played in a performance and only ONE of them can use insertion effects! Korg Trinity, Novation Nova, even the Roland 2080 all allow for multiple effects in performance mode. What the hell was Yamaha thinking!!!! Everything else on this board is great, but that doesnt matter because without an external rack of effects units, you got a lot of work cut out for you using software to add effects later which sucks because you cant hear that in real time. If your using a computer to sequence this is a tempting solution, but most electronic music is heavy with effects and this board will make you choose which ONE (of up to 16 channels) it will let you put effects on (although global effects are always there - but there isnt much personality in that!) by comparison, Korg Trinity allows 5 insert effects. I realize that this is more costly, but lets face it - one isnt enough! I you have so much hardware that none of this matters and you just want one more synth then go for it. I'm returning mine until they get it right. An excellent job in all other areas though.

hey all, I reviewed this nice synth before and im sorry to put this here but i think im having a problem with my CS6x. When I am monitoring it with headphones I hear basically no noise. However, when I connect cables to its outs there is a constant annoying noise, not incredibly harsh but when there are no cables connected to it there is none! And im not talking about listening to it after the mixer so its that things noise, im talking about having the headphones connected to the CS6x and listening that way with cables attached to my mixer and without, and with them there is noise. How is it possible for the CS6x to get more noise by connecting cables to its outs? someone please help me out here

I spent months looking for the right synth.....reading reviews, comments like this board and going to test some demos at the music store. I also realized my budget could only afford the CS2X so I went in to buy one....But for some reason the CS6X kept calling me and the more I played with it I couldn't hold back and jacked up my credit card with the purchase and I have NO REGRETS!!

True, I'm not a pro and havn't experienced a lot of the limitations and system problems that a lot have posted but to be quite honest a lot of these problems can be worked out with a little bit of hard work...Point being, the sounds of the CS6X are phenomenal and allow for quite a bit of originality as well as imitation of what's out there already if thats what you need. For me personally, I don't mind investing the time in figuring out the other probs as my priority are the sounds I'm looking for and with the CS6X I've struck gold!

The only limitation to the CS6X is that Yamaha doesn't include an Addiction Hotline number because I can't stay away from it!! Boy do I wish I had this when I was a teenager and free time was taken for granted.

The arp delay bug and a couple of other minor things have now been fixed with the very latest OS v1.61 available for download at Steve Benesko`s site- http://www.interlog.com/~chinard/CS6x/

Only problem is you need an 8mb smartmedia card to install the thing.
