Yamaha's reface series of mobile mini keyboards offer recreations of legendary Yamaha keyboards, in compact 37-key form factors. Thanks to their small size, the reface keyboards are easy to grab and take with you on the road so you're ready whenever inspiration strikes. Plus, reface keyboards feature Soundmondo integration, allowing you to discover, connect, and share reface voices with the world.

The reface CS is an analog modeling synthesizer designed for simple control while providing complex and unique sounds. The Analog Physical Modeling Engine provides multiple synthesis and oscillator types that have flexible LFO and ADSR routing plus unique Texture and Mod controls that work as follows:

  • Multi-Saw
    • Texture: Adds sub-oscillator
    • Mod: Layers multiple sawtooth waves
  • Pulse
    • Texture: Changes pitch of second pulse wave
    • Mod: Changes pulse width
  • Oscillator Sync
    • Texture: Changes pitch and tone of second oscillator
    • Mod: Sets pitch change amount
  • Ring Modulation
    • Texture: Changes pitch of first oscillator
    • Mod: Changes pitch of second oscillator
  • FM
    • Texture: Sets modulation amount
    • Mod: Changes pitch of the modulator

There is also an onboard effects processor that allow you to further tweak and customize the sounds on the reface CS, including Delay, VCM Phaser, VCM Chorus/Flanger, and Distortion. This synth is equipped with 8-note polyphony to allow for complex chords and pads, or if you switch over to Mono mode you can get fat synth bass or solo leads easily.
