Maybe transwave synthesis is a somewhat too interesting sounding name for what it is. The whole waveform setup with the crossfading and all is a bit vague. No problem programming per octave though; Just program one, copy to the remaining four, edit the pitch per remaining octave. Better yet, program 5 completely different sounds for a quick and nice form of multitimbral use. Also multitimbral output (2 parts only, L&R). The bell-like timbres you can make on this synth are excellent. Also made some nice monobass-patch, but name me a synth that cannot do that... No midi-problems here. Most of all it's a quite different synth and considering it's kind of a rompler it's the most editable you can get for the money. Any JV/XV with programming-sliders? King of cheap synths to me and I love cheap synths!

a hate-love synthesizer, quite difficult sound programming, somtimes it can be an effort, but nice particular sound. you can store the sounds internal or on a cartridge. realy good keyboard, can send on different midi cannels for each oktave

If you new to the CTS 2000 the programming can be very difficult - but after some time when you get used to it - you get a big reward. The sounds you can create with this synth are amazing, no other of my synths (I have 12 synths include SY77, M2r, K3, K4, Oberheim, Waldorf Microwave...) incl. comp. soundcards are capable to produce this kind of strange, fat scary sounds. The Keytek (made by the Italian company Siel) has also a very good (and heavy) keyboard . I won’t never give him away and hope this dinosaur stays still ok for a long time.

Recently i bought the cts2000. Its a difficult synth with programming all the actaves. But when you take the time it's a wonderfull synth. Great also to use with more equipment. Each octave can send to another midichannel.

This synth should not carry the name of being a synth but more like a midi velocity sensitive keyboard. The sounds are really bad and there are no FX whatsoever. The only thing I can say about it that is positive is that it still works after all these years.

I think it was a project of somebody that tried to develop asynth for the first time.

I recently bought a Yamaha SY-77 and now my needs are forfilled the thing has taken a place in the cellar where I think it will stay for some time before getting towards the garbage.
