Now 25+ years after its release, Arturia lets you rediscover this synthesizer's voice with the CS-80 V virtual instrument. Inside, you've got the sound of the original, plus a new generation of features with the Arturia CS-80 V.

A re-creation of a classic synth
Introduced in 1976, the CS-80's distinct range of sounds were popularized in the late '70s and early '80s by a number of pop groups, including Electric Light Orchestra, Toto, Paul McCartney and Wings. Other artists and bands like Vangelis, Bon Jovi, Jean-Michel Jarre, Geoffrey Down, Stevie Wonder and some others turned the CS-80 into a genuine myth.
