The CS-80V is the reproduction of the legendary Yamaha CS-80, which is considered by many as the "ultimate polyphonic synthesizer". More than 25 years after its release, the time has come to rediscover a sound that has extensively contributed to the history of music...

In 1976, Yamaha introduced the CS-80. The price tag ($6,900) put it out of reach of most musicians, and the weight (220 lbs or 100 kg) made it sometimes hard to use on the stage...But the qualities of the CS-80, considered as Japan's first great synthesizer, made it immediately famous in the music industry.

The CS-80 was popularised in the late 70's and early 80's by artists and groups like Toto, Jean-Michel Jarre, Keith Emerson, Stevie Wonder or Vangelis, who helped to turn this synthesizer into a real myth.

The CS-80V offers all the features of the original synth, plus a new generation of innovative features, taking the original design to a new elevated level:

But is the sound of the CS-80V really close to the original? We would tend to say yes, as the synthesizer is based on TAE, the proprietary technology developed by Arturia, and already successfully used in the Moog Modular V.
