textures. A Performance is comprised of up to 4 individual voice Layers that can be
played simultaneously or that can each be assigned to play only in specified Velocity
and Key Ranges. Also included in each Performance are the Arpeggiator settings, Sound Control knob positions and two stored Scenes
(“snapshots” of the knob positions), plus all other panel edit parameters – including Reverb, Chorus and Variation effect settings.
What’s more, Multi Play In Performance Mode lets you use your Performances along with 12 other XG or GM sounds driven by an
external MIDI sequencer. So while your sequenced backing tracks are kickin’ the groove, you can play the keyboard and manipulate your
sounds in realtime using all the great Performance mode features like the Arpeggiator, the Control Knobs and morphable Scenes.

With the infinite variety of sounds you can
get out of the CS2x using the Sound
Control knobs, you’ll be glad you can store
your favorite knob positions in the two
Scene memories. Simply pressing a
Scene button as you play will recall the
sound you want, which makes Scenes
handy for quickly changing the sound
between verses and choruses and lead
breaks. A Scene Control function lets you
use the Modulation Wheel or a connected
Foot Controller to “morph” between the
two Scene sounds in realtime.

Nothing compares to being able to grab a knob and change a sound in realtime – especially when it comes to the
type of intricate and evolving synth sounds used in today’s dance music productions. That’s why the CS2x has 8
Sound Control knobs which give you direct access to key sound parameters like envelope (attack, decay, release), filter
(high pass and low pass), and resonance. Two extra assignable knobs can be assigned to control the parameter of
your choice, whether it be stereo panning, Arpeggiator tempo, effect send level or one of many others. You can store
your favorite knob positions in the two Scene memories for instant recall as you play. With the CS2x, you’re
guaranteed direct control over your sound at all times.

Want to have some real fun? Then switch on the Arpeggiator and play a chord.
The CS2x will create automatic arpeggiated chords based on the notes you play.
With the 40 arpeggio types and 10 timing resolution subdivisions available, you can
literally get carried away for hours on end creating a vast array of arpeggios. An
Arpeggiator Hold function lets the arpeggios continue to loop even after taking your
hands from the keyboard, and an Arpeggiator Split function lets you play the
arpeggiated chords to the left of the split point while playing normally to the right.
The Arpeggiator works exceptionally well with an external MIDI sequencer, as the
CS2x can either control or be controlled by the clock of the external device.
What’s more, since the CS2x’s Arpeggiator data can be output via MIDI, you can
record its note and timing events into a track of the external sequencer, or have it
“trigger” the voices of other MIDI synthesizers or external tone generators.
The CS2x also has a Multi Play mode with 779 XG normal voices and
30 drum kits (including TG300B compatibility). You can play any of the
XG voices from the keyboard as “1 part", or you can assign up to 16
of them across “16 parts” for multitimbral desktop music production
using an external MIDI music sequencer. A built-in TO HOST terminal
eliminates the need for a special MIDI interface between the CS2x and
a computer. And since the CS2x is designed for XG and GM formats,
you can easily control all voice and effect selections as well as
individual parameter settings via MIDI program change, control change
and system exclusive messages programmed in the sequencer tracks
of the song. (It’s also great for playing back commercially available
SMF type Standard MIDI Files.) The CS2x is so versatile it can be
connected to various types of other MIDI and audio components to
create an expanded system.

4. CS2x + MDF3 (for data storage)
This combination provides for music sequence playback,
including MIDI bulk data exchange.
CS2x
When it comes to programming the CS2x’s detailed edit parameters, what you see is what
you get! Because all Edit mode parameters are available in a grid of six menus printed on
the panel and accessible by twisting the Edit Parameter Rotary switch and pressing
the corresponding data entry button, you’ll never have to wade through layers of submenus.
It’s really that simple.

Together with the QY70 Music Sequencer, the CS2x can
become a compact but very powerful music production system,
as well as a versatile live performance tool that you can play
anywhere you want!
