KApro CS80 – a sample and MONTAGE Performance library
NOTE: THIS SOUNDSET REQUIRES MONTAGE OS V1.6 OR HIGHER
The Yamaha CS-80 which was introduced in 1976 has been widely considered to be the greatest polyphonic synthesizer of all time. Indeed, it is a marvelous sound creating device heard on so many seminal recordings, especially of the 1970s and the 1980s.
Claus Kruse of YAMAHA was so kind to give YAMAHA’s own CS-80 to Peter (aka our KApro team member Prof. Dr. Peter Jung), several years ago. Peter’s work resulted in a widely known sample-based sound library for the MOTIF XF/MOXF synthesizer series.
Now, encouraged by Claus’s request, Peter created a refurbished version of the original MOTIF XF/MOXF CS-80 library tailored to the MONTAGE!
Besides the MONTAGE versions of the 128 legacy programs contained in the original MOTIF XF/MOXF library, there are 36 all new programs, featuring the MONTAGE live sound modification features of the Super Knob, and also using the pitch bend and modulation wheels, the ribbon, the assignable switches and, last but not least, aftertouch.
Remarkably, these 36 new programs also provide you with a very lively sound reproduction feature: the slight variation of the synth sound while repeatedly pressing the same key. You may know this feature under the expression “round robin”, widely deployed in symphonic VSTi’s. This feature is unprecedented in sample-based synthesizer libraries for hardware workstations and makes the “KApro CS80” Sound Library really special. You will be overwhelmed by the vivid sound! Great for both live and studio use, the “KApro CS80” Sound Library contains sophisticated, lush performances suited perfectly for every style of popular music which exploits electronic sound synthesis. Moreover, the “KApro CS80” Sound Library also provides ambient atmospheres and textures making movie scores and soundtracks really special.
