She's a Replicant

CS-80 V is our modeled version of the legendary Yamaha™ CS-80, considered by many to be the ultimate polyphonic synthesizer of the late ‘70s.

Huge in size and price tag, the CS-80 was a flagship synthesizer of the 1970's. It's unique dual voice layout allowed for rich and full sounds that have not been matched to this day. It was popularized by artists such as Toto, Jean-Michel Jarre, Klaus Schulze, Stevie Wonder, Vangelis, Ultravox and Peter Gabriel, to name a few. Hit song after hit song has turned this synthesizer into a true legend.

More than three decades after its release, the time has come to rediscover a sound that has contributed extensively to the history of music.

Evolution of the Species

The original Yamaha CS-80 was probably one of the most expressive synthesizers made.

With its polyphonic aftertouch, separate high pass and low pass filters and large ribbon controller it became the voice of artists like Vangelis and ABBA.

Multi-Mode

The sound of the CS80 makes it standout for pad sounds. For that cinematic sound that will stand out in a mix and drive emotion, CS-80 V is the right choice for you.

There is Never Enough of a Good Thing

While the CS-80 was wonderful sounding, it was missing some critical modulation routing that a modern synth should have. We added a modulation matrix which has opened up the sound design capabilities to new heights. The new voice modes and arpeggiator breath new life into this classic giving you even bigger sounds than original.
