Yamaha CS-50 Manual

A complete scan of a very clean copy of the manual for the CS-50 – view and download the complete pdf here.

It’s really well put together and is actually pretty useful as a resource if you are new to synthesis. It’s also a good guide to the “basic” functions of the big CS synths, especially the CS-60 and CS-80 with which it shares design and layout similarities.

It also has some funny cartoons in the margin to illustrate some of the basic principles and functions. Scroll down to see a few of those pages.
