Depeche Mode is using this synth on tour with them along with a Roland JP-8000.

I have had my CS6 for about a year now, It is the heart of my setup, the sounds are great! mayb 2 clean sometimes for dance, I also love the synthesis, but would like to be able to expand the wave ROM from 16Mb, really i have nothing bad 2 say about it ,BUT.. when you listen to the voices they sound incredible, but when the voices are used in perfomance mode you can only have one part assigned to the insertion FX, this leaves the rest of the 15 parts sounding a little uninteresting with just the chorus & reverb. It is a nice synth, but not punchy enough

i will give it a 3.5 4 /5

A great board considering its low price. Definitely worth a try if you are on a budget. The only flaw is the midi lag that makes the arppegiator unuseable. Anyway, I'm not a big fan of trancy riffs so I don't miss it much... Moreover, this synth takes too much time to do program changes which results in sound gaps. Pretty embarrassing, especially during a gig... Anyway, I still recommend this board: for the price (I got mine for 700$ in France) you get at least a great master keyboard.

Excellent PCM/analog hybrid sound out of this machine, unfortunately it doesn't program quite as easily as a conventional analog (they should've used many many knobs instead of an LCD interface) but its a yamaha so editing doesn't take much time to pick up on. Unfortunately the majority of the factory presets really blow, you'll want to shape your own. Most of the design in sound from this board comes from the array of filters and effects processing on board (there are tons of different fx). One of the things I like most is the ability to make long transforming sounds, though in order to get that wavestation like effect you have to do specific tweaking-it does *not* do wavesequencing, at least not in the wavestation way. Also remember, those 64 voices tend to get eaten up quickly when your patch uses all 4 oscillators, 4 for every note. If you are looking to do dance/trance music this may be all you need, if not that its still awesome as a solo synth and live performance board. Oh and the input effects are superb, nice addition to the board-though a little difficult to find..
