This is a highly unique synth with loads of character. I own loads of synths (cs50s, minimoog, jupiter 8) and this thing makes some awesome sounds that I cant get anywhere else. A synth rather more for effects and wierd noises/bass swells than for playing melodies. It rocks and I am always dropping sounds from it in my tunes and am looking for another! Looks ultra cool as well.

I once upon a time bought a TR-606 for 150$. A TR-606 is a good thing, but not too good, so I decided to sell it. Instead of money, I got the CS-15D, and thats a pretty good deal. Well, not the most economic change for me, but suddenly i had this brilliant piece of machine! It fits me perfect. Lo fi sounds, bass sounds, wierd sounds. I never use the preset sounds. Also, I like it simple. Using this machine is so easy and so greatful. Well, what more can I say? This synth gives every idustrial/powernoise/experimental song me and my friend makes the ultimate character.

I've been using the CS-15D for several years now and it is still a wonderful machine!! I never, ever use the presets but the manual part is absolutely good enough. I got it used for 75$ and thats as cheap as it gets. (Anyone familiar with the idea of stripping another CS-15D for its manual synthcard, and replace the preset cards with it in your original CS-15D? Duofonic, tunable superbassynth!!).

Odd little machine, definitely an underrated masterpiece. Some of the presets are usable when combined with each other or w/a user voice.

Filter is very good, programming easy. This is my favorite single VCO monosynth. LFO goes to 100Hz, so some truly bizarre noises can be done.

Build quality is outstanding, unit is very stable on a pitch level. All the controls are well laid out, with two exceptions: The portamento control is not fine enough, and the filter cutoff can't be routed to the mod wheel. (There is a seperate brilliance slider which does exactly that, but a wheel feels better.)

Grab one if you can, well worth a couple of hundred bucks.
