Yo what’s good fam!
Back with another UVI product to review, this is from their vintage synth line, specifically, it’s the CS-M…version 1.5
Let’s just jump right in and see what this thing is about
So what is the CS-M 1.5?
It’s a library dedicated to the “lesser known” Yamaha CS series synths.
So for this library they focused on the 70M, 40M, 20M, and recently added the CS-01
As with other UVI libraries, they didn’t just recreate or clone the instruments, they capture the character and sound of these instruments and turned the content into an instrument on it’s own.
Of course you know they add their special twists like Arp and Mod sequencing, plus FX, with a very sexy customized interface that makes it easy to tweak and alter the sounds.
You can even start from scratch with the init patch and go to work from there.
- content: 1.37GB, 203 presets
- format: UVI Workstation
- price: $79

So how does it sound?
Man anyone that’s been around here for any amount of time knows I’m a fan of the UVI sound in general.
They always seem to bring a certain warmth and character to their instruments, this one is no exception.
You can get everything from super deep bass, to fat analog brass, smooth or aggressive leads, airy pads, and even a few fx and sweeps as well.
Overall the sound quality is top notch, the character is there, and the sounds are ready to be tweaked if you wish.
So what’s the bottom line?
If you like vintage sounds, UVI probably has something for you.
I’m a firm believer that the best way to truly capture the character of a specific synth is with samples, and they definitely have something great in this library.
I give CS-M 4.5 out of 5 subs, it sounds amazing, it’s got a dope interface that’s ready to tweak…oh…and you only have to load it once as all the presets can be called up from the interface itself!
They have so many gems in their Vintage Vault collection, you can get the whole thing or just the pieces you want.
No matter what you choose to do, I’m sure you will not be disappointed.
