Hey Arie why are you dissing the CS6x when its the plugin boards that are causing you problems? The CS6x is an excellent synth with absolutely fantastic sounds.You are complaining about something that is an option on the CS6x and if people don`t like the way the plugin boards work they do not have to fit them.It is unfair to criticise the CS6x because of this.I think Yamaha should be applauded for giving us the option of expanding it with different boards.I guess some peoople are just never happy!

The CS6 is a great sounding machine; however, when in use the arpeggiator hesitates something like a 32nd of a note from note on events. This is definitely a design flaw as EVERY other CS6 user will attest. Please, Yamaha, do not allow the error to ruin an otherwise superb synth. Please do whatever it takes to correct this. As it stands, the arpeggiator is quite useless in most realtime applications, and I'm quite amazed that it passed the testing dept.. If Yamaha choose to fix the arp so that the user could somehow set the delay amount or turn it completely off the CS6 then deserves the highest marks, but not until then.

Hey guys, don't get me wrong. The synth does sound great and has a lot of options. I also have a CS1x,which I still use a lot. So it's not that I'm dissing Yamaha. I must say that at the time I bought the CS1x I had much better support and surely a better manual. It seems these days that company's are only interested in earning big bucks instead of getting their act together and deliver a fully functional synth and that really bugs me. And that also goes for the PLG-AN board. Have you tried using PLG-AN editor and tried saving the sound in the CS6x?? I have and it's a bitch. And I'm not even talking about using the onboard FX. Com 'on guys this could have been a lot better. Of course I could sell the thing, but you and I both know that you don't get the same cash as that you buy it for and I don't have a money tree growing on my back. I still have a little hope that Yamaha will address these problems. Over and out.

Hey Arie if you can`t get yer head round the CS6x maybe a DJX would suit you better! The CS6x is an awesome synth and is not hard to use at all. It has brilliant sounds,has a usefull loop/phrase sampler and can be expanded with the plugin boards(2 can be fitted).It also comes with some very usefull software for transferring and saving patches/samples to your memory card and also has a usefull on-screen editor for making your own sounds.Also I have had no problems will the Analogue plugin board fitted and it sounds brilliant. Don`t give a bad rating to asynth becasue it`s YOU who has the problem using it and not the CS6x at fault. Also the Arp Sync problem is not too major,Yamaha know about it and are probably working on a simple fix as we speak. I also use it with a Novation Nova(a very highly rated synth by just about everybody who has tried it) and actually prefer the CS6x! If it bothers you that much sell the fucking thing!

Am I the only person in the world that actually PLAYS my own arps? JESUS CHRIST PEOPLE! If you're going to have the machine play the notes for you, there's no real point in making your "own" music. I suppose it's better than using a sampled loop or a preset on a groovebox, but if your only gripe is "THE ARP WON'T SYNC... THE ARP WON'T SYNC" then get the fuck over it. Find a work around (set the CS6X as the master midi clock) or don't use arps.

OR BETTER YET, PLAY THEM YOURSELVES!!!

Sorry to sound bitter... Oh well.
