Topic: Yamaha Cs-5 Vca noise

I would like to buy one , but i've heard samples and the Vca noise is noticeable, especially when the bass notes are played. Is this normal behaviour of the CS-5?

can't remember there was any, it has a noise generator onboard so it could be that it's turned on?

i'm sure it's turned off.
Here is another sample with VCA noise.

mine doesn't do that, there must be something wrong with the noise generator.

Strange....I've found on net samples from 3 different CS-5 and they are all noisy.

mmmh but in this case it's not just the simple average noisy output (which many older synths have) but it seems like there's some noise from the noise generator leaking out. Just for reference my CS5 is not even that noisy but the output level is somehow low in comparison with other synths, this is no problem at all usually as when I crank up the level on the mixer channel the sound is clean and well defined.
