Buying Choices

The third in Yamaha's new ReFace range - these guys are all the same form factor, we have the ReFace CS (synth), ReFace DX (FM Synth) and now the ReFace YC - an organ machine. With the same mini keys - surprisingly playable due to the mass of the unit and the quality of the keys. This one does organs.

There's also a reverb, drive and leslie effect too, as well as drwabars for real-time control of the five organ models.

  • H - Classic sinus organ sound
  • V - Transistor organ sound No. 1
  • F - Transistor organ sound No. 2
  • A - Transistor organ sound No. 3
  • Y - Yamaha transistor organ sound

All the ReFace units, have built in speakers and battery power, which means you can play anywhere - should you wish. They also have MIDI io and USB MIDI (no audio).

  • AWM Tone Generator (Organ Flutes)
  • Five different organ models
  • Nine drawbar sliders
  • Leslie simulation
  • Two Effects, Distortion & Reverb
  • 128-note polyphony
  • Percussion, 4 'and 2 2/3', with adjustable length
  • Vibrato and Chorus with adjustable intensity
Priced at the same £347 UK, available Autumn 2015
