Yamaha CS-5 - 1 skt (filter)
Kit to add a filter control socket to the Yamaha CS-5
This synth already has suitable CV (Hz/V) and Gate (S-Trig) sockets, so it is not necessary to add them.
This additional socket will enable the cutoff frequency of the low pass filter of the synth to be voltage controlled. This can be acheived using an aux output of one of our MIDI to CV converters, such as the Pro-Solo mkII, USB-Solo or Pro-2000 mkII. You can then control the filter cutoff using any continuous controller (cc) or other MIDI messages such as Aftertouch or Velocity.
The kit contains all necessary components and diagrams for connecting the wires / components, and mounting the 3.5mm mono jack socket.
The CV (Hz/V) input of the CS-5 needs to be connected to the CV output of the Kenton converter, and Hz/V scaling to be selected in the converter menu.
The S-Trig input of the CS-5 needs to be connected to the Gate output of the Kenton converter, and S- (middle bar) to be selected (s-trig +5V pullup) in the converter menu.
The Filter input of the CS-5 needs to be connected to the Aux output of the Kenton converter. By default this will be controlled by CC#16 but can be changed in the converter menu (see converter manual).
