Arturia Continue Classic Range With CS-80V
It's all there and light as a feather

Arturia really hit the mark with their software rendition of the Moog Modular V - so much so, that it was endorsed by Dr Bob Moog himself. Now, they turn they're attention to another analogue heavyweight. The Yamaha CS-80 is heralded as many by the ultimate analogue polysynth. The caped Greek Vangelis, was very fond of his and used it on many of his classic works. However, it was a temperamental beast and was known to require the tlc from the tech bench on many occaisons. It also weighed an absolute ton and didn't take kindly to being moved around much. Apart from that though, it's sounds were greatly prized. Arturia have unleashed their arch coders to create a virtual version in the CS-80V and by all accounts it's another excellent interpretation.
