CS-80 V3 is a digital representation of the popular Yamaha CS-80 polyphonic analog synthesizer, a tool well known in the 70s for its original sounds.
This Mac utility comes with a beautifully crafted graphical interface, one that looks very similar to an original Yamaha CS-80 synthesizer. Novice users will find the interface confusing, as there are lots of complex functions and buttons all gathered in a small area.
Its functionalities include a Digital Delay, one arpeggiator, and more than 500 presets sounds made by the best sound designers. Besides, it integrates the original parameters of the Yamaha CS-80, such as 4 filters, 2 VCAs, one sub-oscillator, one ring modulator, chorus and tremolo, two LFOs, and 4 envelopes.
Furthermore, there's a Modulation Matrix with 13 sources and 38 destinations and a Multi-Mode where you can assign a different sound to each of the 8 voices of polyphony.
All things considered, CS-80 V3 is a powerful digital synthesizer mostly designed for professionals. It includes lots of features and is very reliable, but it seems a bit pricey.
