1889 Paris Exposition (Fabrizio Massara)

Fabrizio Massara (a.k.a. fab) is a keyboardist/composer/producer. He's a member of Baustelle , alternative pop italian band (two albums released, now signed to Warner Music Italy). He makes (real) love with (virtual) synths when the girls fall asleep...

Aquarium (Mateo Lupo )

Adapted from The Carnival of the Animals by Saint-Saens.

Demo (Mitsuru Sakaue )

A CS-80V demo song inspired by Vangelis and Eddie Jobson. Big thanks to Mitsuru Sakaue.

CSolo (Bart Garratt)

CSolo is a short composition demonstrating the expressive power of the CS-80V when played with polyphonic aftertouch. The piece uses one preset and was performed in real time. Only reverb was added.

Epic Anthem (Rikke Lind)

Soundtrack made of 11 instances of the CS-80 V. No extra effects, except limiter for mastering. Rikke Lind, Sweden

Clear Water (Clear Water project)

Here is a short music clip that Glen made using nothing but the CS-80V. It's not a real song, just an audio scribble of an idea he has. It uses 6 tracks of CS-80V, some EQ and some compression.

Jerusalem (Mateo Lupo)

Inspired from the choral piece of Chariots of Fire (Vangelis). This cathedral anthem was originally composed by Sir Hubert Parry (1848-1918) in 1900.

Winterhat (Matthews Tyas)

Made with 6 CS-80V tracks plus a stereo drum track (recorded live). Reverb and compression have been added to the final mix. Courtesy of Matthew Tyas.

Medley (Fin )

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 Modular V. Some other percussion and effect plug-ins have been used.

The CS-80 sounded absolutely amazing and unique, and so does the CS-80V!... The sounds you can get from them are endless.

The CS-80V is the cornerstone of our live shows. We've been long time users of Arturia products especially the CS-80V, we use it onstage indeed. We are really impressed by this software by the way as we own a real CS-80 unit and find the similarities with the software pretty amazing.

Arturia has done a remarkable job of capturing the essence of the instrument. It's incredibly authentic. I hear no difference.

One of the most appealing things about the CS-80V was the unique sound and shape of its amplitude and tremolo modulation.

It has a smooth, detailed sound that you would expect from a real analog synthesizer; with filters that make other digital synths sound gritty by comparison. The CS-80V just sounds great! James Lumb

I just sold my Yamaha GX1 because I have a great remplacement with Arturia's CS-80V.

I reviewed the Arturia CS-80V with some skepticism - as a critical user of the best analog as well as digital processing gear (and permanent fan of the original CS-80 hardware), i am constantly enduring modest programming, often of emulations. Thus, I cannot overstate how thrilled i was, and how deeply gratified I continue to be, with the Arturia emulations. The CS-80V emulation really only fails in one area: the original CS-80 was in constant need of tuning, which was a profoundly tedious chore. I'll take the plug, thanks. same thing for the Mini V. faithfully and flawlessly modeled. and stable!! couldn't live without them now.

The CS-80V is like a dream come true, with true classic vintage sounds but with all the latest digital control.

It has loads of personality and is capable of amazing sounds which are impossible on my real CS-80.

I love the sound of that plug-in, and so does Stevie Wonder... I recommend it to anyone who wants great vintage sounds. (About the CS-80V)
