Arturia CS80V2 Virtual Instrument

In 1976, Yamaha introduced the CS-80. The price tag ($6,900) put it out of reach of most musicians, and the weight (220 lbs or 100 kg) made it sometimes hard to use on stage, but the qualities of the CS-80, considered as Japans first great synthesizer, made it immediately famous in the music industry.

The CS-80 was popularised in the late 70's and early 80's by artists and groups like Toto, Jean-Michel Jarre, Keith Emerson, Stevie Wonder, Vangelis and Genesis who helped to turn this synthesizer into a real myth.

The Arturia CS80V...

The CS-80V offers all of the features from the original synth, plus a new generation of innovative features which take the original design to a new elevated level:

  • A modulation matrix
  • A multitimbral mode
  • An arpeggiator

But is the sound of the CS-80V really close to the original? We would tend to say yes, as the synthesizer is based on TAE®, the proprietary technology developed by Arturia, and already successfully used in the Moog Modular V.

    Price Matching

    Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

    Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

    What prices we will match?

    We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

    The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

    Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

    The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

    Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

    Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
