Overview

Yamaha reface keyboards are designed around the practical needs of contemporary musicians. The name of the series, "reface," is a conflation of the idea of reimagining and the legacy of Yamaha's many groundbreaking keyboard instrument interfaces. Among the innovations that it hearkens back to are the legendary CP80, DX7 and Yamaha Combo Organ. This is the reface CS, which has as one of its chief orientations the exciting timbres from the CS5 synth.


Note: If you purchase any model reface between 9/1/15 and 12/31/15, Yamaha will send you a free soft carrying case (mail in offer). The reface softcase works as a messenger-style bag or a backpack, it even has a loop for attaching the reface to a suitcase handle. And inside, there's plenty of room to store your cables and AC adapter.

The reface series is small. Incredibly small. But unlike miniature keyboard instruments of the past, the reface touch is satisfying and expressive, and the sound is nothing short of spectacular. The reface family of keyboards features built-in speakers and is battery operable so you can create on the go. An aux line in allows you to play along with MP3 players or whatever other audio device you wish to use. Add MIDI and USB connectivity, and the reface's capacity to interface with external devices is vast.

Not just another monophonic analog clone, the 8-note polyphonic Reface CS™ five unique oscillator modules create an incredible variety of sounds from warm and fat analog to crisp and clear digital. The intuitive Texture and Mod controls take simple oscillator types and turn them into complex and sophisticated waveforms. Animate your sound with the simple but powerful LFO and EG and add depth, flavor and attitude with the onboard effect and filter. If you™ve got a song idea or want to build a performance from the bottom up, you can capture it using the onboard Looper.

For keyboardists and sound designers needing a huge variety of polyphonic synth tones, Reface CS is a mini-key synthesizer with heritage from the renowned CS and AN synthesizers featuring multiple oscillator types each with a unique character. Unlike synthesizers that only offer single synthesis types or only play one or two notes at a time, Reface CS features additive and subtractive synthesis and 8-note polyphony.

WebMIDI and the reface Keyboard
It had to happen, so it did. WebMIDI. And of course, Yamaha is one of the first to offer a way to use it. Introducing Soundmodo (www.soundmodo.com), a social sound-sharing website for sharing reface Mobile Mini Keyboard sounds. 

WebMIDI connects MIDI devices to the Internet, allowing musical instruments to play online synthesizers, as well as save or share sounds. Reface Mobile Mini Keyboards are the first instruments to use WebMIDI with Soundmondo, offering an easy way to store, recall, organize and share sounds. Saving sounds on Soundmondo is easy. Once you user connect your instrument and set up an account, simply hit CREATE and give your sound a name, a description and tags. You can also add YouTube video and SoundCloud audio.

BROWSE shows all available sounds (currently thousands), and you can refine your searches using tags. Once you find a sound you like, click on it and hit SYNC. This will send the sound to your connected reface and show them you to move the controls on your keyboard to recreate the sound. How cool is that?

    Comments about Yamaha reface CS Mobile Mini Keyboard:

    I have an original CS01mkII that I use to teach beginning synthesis. When Yamaha introduced the reface line last summer I wanted a CS, but the YC caught my eye first. Now I have them both, and the CS was worth the wait. The best part is it's 8 voice polyphonic, plus it has +/- 5 octave range, 5 oscillator waveforms, built in effects, and a looper. Very playable mini keys, great battery life, and small enough to take anywhere.

    Yamaha just opened it's reface website (https://soundmondo.yamahasynth.com/), and you can upload and download patches using Google Chrome (for Web MIDI). A great way to get ideas for patches in a hurry.
    Yamaha has also updated the operating system, the biggest part being you can adjust the pitchbend lever from +/- one octave to +/- one whole step - I find this more usable beause of the short travel length of the lever.
    A very playable and useful musical instrument.
