Im about to get this synth in 4 days but I have the wedding day jitters about it for 2 reasons.

Firstly why the hell has it only got 128 user memories HEY! This pisses me off when they are stingy! A super synth with 128 user area that are already filled is like a porsche boxter with a 0.7 litre tank!!! Smart media card = petrol can in the boot! (how awkward). (secondly, it has the same wave form list as the stale yamaha S30!!)

This synth has milage but the tank is low!

QUESTIONS? (e-mailed answers please or reply, thanks) CAN U STORE MORE THAN 128 SOUNDS ON SMARTMEDIA?

IF SO CAN THEY BE RECALLED FOR SEQUENCE PLAYBACK?

CAN U ONLY STORE AND USE 1 EXT BANK AT A TIME?

ARE THE WAVEFORMS RAW AND CUTTING ENOUGH FOR PIEARCING LEAD (pre efx!.

IF THIS IS A DEDICATED DANCE SYNTH, WHY THE HELL DOES IT HAVE THE SAME WAVEFORM LIST AS THE BLEEDIN EX5, EX7, S03, S90, S30 AND ALL THE OTHER YAMAHA GM/XG SYNTH? CHECK THE PDF MANUALS AND SEE!

Other than these unanswered gripes, i can saftley say I'll be getting married! However I am flirting with the Access Virus and a stag nite with a second hand Waldorf Q may stop the wedding bells!

AWESOME SYNTH buy it! (could anyone e-mail me the answers PLEASE!!)

I've just grabbed one of these boxes, and it sounds KILLER! I tried it out at the shop and was satisfied, but once I brought it home and ran it through the monitors, all I could say was "damn!" This thing is PHAT. the filters are deadly. The effects are amazing! I'm patching other gear into this, just to use its filters and effects (the BeatChange one in particular is great for chewing up sounds). I've always been a fan of Yamaha gear, their mindset is great... you need to do a little bit of learning, (but this one is quite easy) but they pack lots of power into their boxes.

Just purchased one of these units to add to my rig (Yamaha Motif8, TX802, Layla24 Laptop, Sonar XL 2.1) and am amazed. I realize it's the predecessor of the Motif line, so figured the sounds would be thinner/weaker/etc. than the Motif. Not true. This thing is awesome. The pads outshine the Motif, some of the drum kits sounds much better than the Motif...I could go on. Of course, every instrument has it's strong and weak points. The weakest point of the CS6r is it's 2-line LCD, but that's not much of an issue if you use the downloadable voice-editor software. Overall, I'm incredibly impressed with this synth. Now if I could just get this MIDI madness figured out...

The best sounding synth I own period. So good I bought 2 of them. The drums are good but work better if you record them as audio into any of the Hard Disk recording systems available. The arps are neat sounding, but not really usable in a composition - at least for me. The strength of this module is it's fabulous filters, control sets (6 of 'em) and the raw wave data from which to program your sounds. The synth can sound phat and full, dreamy, weird, buzzy, - anything you can dream up it can get you there. I use it for ambient pads and atmospheres for dance, pop, and new age tracks. I have a Waldorf Micro Q and it competes with the Waldorf's analog sound! Add the PLG-AN analog modeling plug-in and your golden!!
