Yamaha CS-50 (or CS-60) CV Gate mods?

Postby pinksoir » Wed Jun 11, 2014 8:28 pm

I did some digging online and it seems like it's possible to add CV inputs to the CS 50 and 60. Sounds like some people have done it and there's a link in the comments on the CS-60 page on VSE to a fleabay auction that had the CV mods.

Anyone have any info? Any techs done it?

I don't really wanna MIDI my 50 up for a few different reasons but CV/gate would be amazing for getting it talking with my other gear.

I've not found any info about it really and I've tried a lot of different places.

I'm trying to find out if something like a universal midi interface like the UMR2 would work. It requires a keyboard matrix to work. Can't get any info on that ATM either, even from the maker of the UMR2 (too busy).
