Arturia's CS-80V is the reproduction of the legendary Yamaha CS-80 which is considered by many as "the ultimate polyphonic" synthesizer.
Introduced in 1976 and considered Japan's first great synthesizer by many, the CS-80 became immediately famous in the Music Industry. It was popularised by a very large number of pop supergroups and artists who helped to turn it into a real myth.
The CS-80V offers the same features as the original CS-80 and adds some innovative functions such as a multi-mode, and a modulation matrix. It is fully compatible with the main protocols and systems in the industry. It can be used as stand-alone software or as a virtual instrument with the ability to operate at 32-bit/96kHz.
The CS-80 V is loaded with more than 400 presets made by a selection of artists and musicians.
The CS-80V is based on a set of algorithms created by Arturia's sound engineers and gathered under the name TAE. TAE stands for True Analog Emulation. TAE avoids any sort of aliasing; it also emulates the typical instability of hardware oscillators and brings the warm sound of the vintage synths.
The CS-80V will run as a standalone application under Windows (ASIO and DirectSound) and Mac OS X (Core Audio). Supported plug-in formats include DXi, VST, MAS, RTAS, HDTM, and Audio Unit.
