Yamaha's Reface teaser campaign has finally ended, perhaps many of you will have already seen whats coming via various leaks etc and perhaps wondered why we didn't post anything. Well we have been fortunate enough to get some exclusive video presentations of the entire range which we shot a little while back. Three letters - NDA.
Anyhow, now we are able to show you the full range of Reface products, there are four, and this time its the turn of the Yamaha Reface CS - a Virtual Analog CS synth. Yes it has mini keys and no, its not a CS-80 but it is Yamaha's firs new synth for some time - with 5 oscillator type and mono or 8 voice poly and effects, its actually quite a playable instrument - we hope to have a full review as soon as we can get our hands on the unit.
Each of the 5 osc types has its own flavour of control, Saw - ads more waves and a Sub with detune, Square has PWM, Sync - osc interval, Ring Mod and an FM wave.
AN Tone Generator (Analog Physical Modeling)
Eight note polyphony, switchable to monophonic mode
Five Oscillator Types
LFO with four destinations
More details soon, but we expect the price to be £347 UK
There is a live stream happening in LA at 3pm CDT - see below
