Introduction

CS-M 1.5

CS-M is back and it’s bigger than ever! Now including the full set of raw waveforms for the CS-01, an expanded preset library with over 200 patches and a massive boost to performance, delivering dramatically faster load times. There’s never been a better time to explore the warm analog tones of the CS series!

Between 1979 and 1984 Yamaha designed and built some of the most unique and distinct sounding analog synthesizers in the world - the most famous of which being the massive CS-80.

We tend to prefer the sounds of the lesser-known models, and have focused here on the CS-70M, CS-40M, CS-20M and CS-01.

UVI CS-M features a dual-layer architecture and instant preset/layer switching making it an extraordinarily responsive instrument capable of a wide and authentic sound palette.

Layers include all possible base waveforms and noises as well as expertly programmed presets, all made on the original machines. In fact, great lengths were taken to ensure the authentic sound and natural character of these machines was preserved and translated clearly in CS-M. Everything was sampled, down to the unique unison and ensemble modes.

Enjoy the wonderful vintage sound of these synthesizers or take them into new territory with the UVI Engine. CS-M comes packed with a wealth of features to help you enrich and customize your sounds including double arpeggios, a step sequencer, LFOs and precision modeled FX - allowing you to freely tread in territory the old hardware couldn’t dream of.

From thick and gritty basslines to warm and bubbly arpeggios and sharp analog leads, UVI CS-M is a grand ode to some of our most beloved hardware inspirations.

UVI Workstation: Tips + Tricks

MIDI Learn Arpeggiator

Most UVI Workstation parameters can be automated via. a convenient

MIDI Learn. MIDI Learn allows you to bind a physical MIDI controller to specific parameters within UVI Workstation.

Any FX tab parameter, Macro Knob or Slider in UVI instruments can use the MIDI Learn feature

The MIDI controller type and the MIDI Channel assignment will be saved with the multi or with your song in the host sequencer

Automation is assigned per-part

To use MIDI Learn:

1. Right-click the parameter in UVI Workstation that you want to automate

2. After the MIDI Learn dialog appears, Trigger the desired MIDI input controller (knob, fader etc.)

To remove a MIDI controller assignment:

Right-click the desired parameter and press “Delete”

Unlimited FX

UVI Workstation comes equipped with a robust arpeggiator. To insert an arpeggiator in a part, you need to display the Single view in the

UVI Workstation, then click on the note icon. The arpeggiator can be employed as a pattern gate, arpeggiator, or even an advanced rhythmic processor for your live MIDI performance or sequenced MIDI tracks. Arpeggiators can be inserted in an unlimited number of parts.

Preset Stacking

Thanks to the simplicity of the UVI Workstation you can stack as many presets as you want by simply assigning multiple parts on the same MIDI channel.

Split, Velocity & Key Switch

UVI Workstation offers a wide variety of FX, or effect processors, to cover all your audio processing needs. The FX implementation is robust and includes the ability to insert unlimited FX slots in several stages of the signal flow.

Click the “FX” tab to open the FX page on the Single view

In Multi view the FX section is always displayed

The Keyswitch settings allow you to load multiple presets into two or more parts and dynamically play and mute them from your MIDI controller using key switching, note range, velocity range or any combination of the three parameters. This powerful feature gives you a great deal of real-time control.

Scroll Wheel

All knobs can be adjusted with the scroll wheel on your mouse.

When you double-click on any knob or slider, you can manually enter or type in the desired value.
