"In terms of sound quality, the CS-80V is absolutely divine. It's a first-rate-analog-style synthesizer with a wealth of detuning and modulation possibilities that allow you to cook up truly retro sounds-if that's what you're looking for. On the other hand, thanks to the sequencer, stereo delay and multitimbral aspects of the instrument, the CS-80V can sound as up-to-date as your programming chops will allow. The filters have plenty of bite - so much so that you have to watch for clipping. And I particularly like the implementation of the ring modulator, suboscillator and Touch Response features, which enable you to add weird little subtleties to a sound."

A quite extensive and various demo piece, showing many ways to play the CS-80V. Pads, strings, some high-register sounds are from the CS-80V. Sequencing and basslines are from the Moog Modular V. Some other percussion and effect plug-ins have been used.
A jazz guitar demo made with the CS-80V.The preset used is: JM-Blanchet _Guitars_The-Club. The setting of the LP cutoff from the first synthesis line has been increased a bit to make the sound more brighter.
