Had one. Pretty cool. Traded it for a Casio CS101 though. The Yamaha had lots of great realtime control, but the CZ101 goes way deeper in programming ability. Never looked back with regret on the trade because the Casio is great. But if I found another CS01 for a good price, I'd grab it because it was just a different kind of great synth.

I have the mark-1. yeah I spent $80 on it last year so maybe you might think I paid a tad too much. But it still sounds great.. there is no pawn shop near by for me to look around so I had to ask some one and paid $80..but for an analog synth, I think it's still a good deal.. But I wish it had the MK-2's 24 db filter and the slider resonance instead of the lame high-low switch. Can any of you recommend any modification regarding to this? Oh there is a way to make the CS-01 midified.. I think... there is an article in Keyboard mag few years ago regarding to midifying the Casio SK-1 sampler with mini-keys... I don't know if the instruction can be applied to CS, but it's really worth a look.

I picked up a CS01 in a pawn shop for $20, and can hardly believe the sound this thing is capable of. Little keys and non-midi notwithstanding, I LOVE to fool around with this little stone age synth. I would say that if you see one for $75 or less and it works, buy it and don't look back.

I have the CS-01 mk1 not the mk2. This thing rules! Small size, large sound! B Built in speaker, battery powered, guitar strap.. Man, throw in on with some head phones and away you go into the woods or park, making funk music and getting cool looks... They can be had for cheap usually because of their size, but hurry up before theyre all gone!! But look for a mk2 version, with the 24db filter and res slider instead of switch. Now don't get me wrong, the mk1 rules also, but the mk2 looks cooler and has more sonic capability. Get One!!!!
