Yamaha Design “Synapses” CK61
Take your sound where it’s never been before. Anywhere.
The slim, lightweight CK61 combines versatile functionality with portability in a form factor that makes it easy to play anywhere.
The four rounded corners of the back of the unit form an “enclosure” that accentuates the instrument’s gentle shape. Slightly curved edges on both sides make the instrument easier to carry around, and improve fingering when operating the control wheels.
The information that the user sees on the CK61’s front panel is organized for intuitive operations, including the placement of the buttons and the way they light up. For example, the buttons showing the effects for the sound you’ve selected light up in the same color.
The “face” of the instrument seen by the audience is adorned with a crest line offset 8 mm from the edges of the rear panel. This gives the CK61 a sense of presence, even on dimly-lit stages.
