I also chose to share with you this performance as I don't think any of these two machines actually gets the praise it deserves...
The Yamaha CS-15 is one of my favourite analog mono synths ever!
It surely isn't the most versatile machine (and it is truly a shame that there is no kind of modulation between the VCOs), but it has a truly lovely sound that is really inspiring and works great for nice melodic lines or powerful leads.
The Yamaha CS-30, the top of this line of early Yamaha CS analog mono synths, is a considerable more versatile machine, but it still misses some features that make the Yamaha CS-15 very interesting (like that amazing triangle waveform available in the VCOs).
But like the Yamaha CS-15, the Yamaha CS-30 is a bit undervalued when compared to similar machines from the same era, which makes me feel these two are definitely amazing bargains for someone searching for a classic 2 VCO analog mono synth!

The Electrix Repeater is a more obscure machine, but if you are searching for a looper, it is an amazing machine you should definitely check!
In my performances, I haven't used that much as a looper in the traditional sense, but more as a really long delay, and it works great for those tasks!
As a looper, you get 4 mono channels and you are able to change the pitch and reverse the loop you recorded for each channel, which can result in very nice sound experiments!
It is truly an amazing machine that can help you taking your music to different paths, which I think is pretty valuable.

Now, I just give you the link to the performance I did using these two amazing machines!
Hope you enjoy it!
