Synth Wizards Episode 9: Holy Grail: The Yamaha CS-80

Published on Mar 31, 2020 Syntaur

"The Synth Wizards located the holy grail of polyphonic keyboards: a Yamaha CS-80. But the last time it was turned on, it smoked instead of made music. Did we pay thousands of dollars for a pile of parts, or will we end up with a magical music machine?"

Don't miss the visit to Yamaha's synth museum in this one. The rare GS2 and VL1 are featured. Note the patch strip and loader for the GS2. You can find additional posts and demos featuring the GS2 here. There's also a section on Michael Jackson's classic Billie Jean. You can find additional posts featuring Syntaur Synth Wizards here.
