We have the Arturia CS-80V synthesizer running at the studio where I'm working, which has it on a Pro Tools HD based system. It won't usually get used in Pro Tools however, as mostly it's used in Logic on this system. We have a few different studios, but it generally gets used in the smaller productions suites rather than the main room. Either way, all our systems are pretty sturdy and can handle running this software no matter what it's running with.
There's a ton of different sounds that are possible with the Arturia CS-80V, which are valuable to have regardless of if you're looking for sounds like the Yamaha CS-80 or not. I haven't delved into the CS-80V as much as is possible at all, but I've used it enough I think to get a good feel of the different sounds possible here, which are certainly vast. It's definitely got the sound of a 70's into the 80's synthesizer, which is great if you're going for that sort of vibe as I often am. If you're interested in this software at all, it's not too expensive as far as high quality software synths go, so definitely do yourself a favor and check it out.

I have a MacBook ( 2.2 ghz, 120 gb hd, 4gb ram, generally use either a presonus firepod/firebox)
So far, the software has never had a problem opening, running, saving and performing.
As for performance, the sound quality is great, nice and rich pads, 80's esq. leads and nice fuzzy/strong basses.
I have never crashed or lost any sound or anything with this program and my setup.
I have been using the CS-80v for about three months now. I love the fact that it has never had any compatibility problems, has great sounds (I don't know exactly what an original CS sounds like) and has some killer pads ( I love pads!). I have other software synths made my Arturia as well as other brands. This one holds its own against all of them. I bought mine off of ebay in a package deal (moog modular and minimoog also) for about $250. I think it was a great deal. I would definitely buy this item again, especially if you like pads.

All is well with my little setup.
The goal is to give an opinion on the sound quality of the product.
is the most important right?
I find crtion sound a bit complicated compared to a prophet or a v jupiter.
We talk too much here Vangelis. The sound is brilliant and any lack of punch, so if you hack the machine always found the sounds of Greek musician.
A synthesizer is to create these own presets and thus to invent and not copied.
I use it for typical aquifers. Terrific vibrato.
BPS but I lack all power, punch, it's soft.
A unison mode exists but the synth is monophonic.
I prfre my jp 6.
Having all the synths. I can only advise the pro 53.
the minimoog arturia. and Jupiter.

sjl's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
CPU intensive, at least proc. 2.5gh, 1 gigs of RAM.
careful what we read about advertising! (even on the website of the brand)
I am fortunate to have an acquisition recently CS60, which starts the second line of the synthesis and polyphonic aftertouch (wholesale), has the same circuits as the original CS80, and therefore sounds the same fawn .
in fact, possess before, I had "ruquot; on CS80V Arturia, and I said to myself" ouhaou ", piloted by a kurzweil midiboard with 2ms latency, short, beautiful!
But then also the fact that the CS80V is a beautiful soft, it does not react at all in the same fawn (but then not at all) despite their updates, and bugs still Submitted (it must indeed pass through the modulation matrix for the control of the LFO rate via the pressure polyphonic while indicating knob touch response speed sub, is not recognized by the polyphonic pressure ...).
vangelis the famous copper is obtained by using the sustain mode in the down position with the stroke of knob about halfway, giving effect to all voices unison
In any case, the CS60, but nothing about the software.
this is so, also for envelopes, and the filter that frankly, do not have the same result either.
Now you tell me, what matters is what is done with, and there are what, with one as with the other, but remember, the use of a keyboard aftertouch Polyphonic remains essential even if the CS60 itself remains monaural.

ostrovitch's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
trs simple install on mac I do not know, but not PC specific problem.
The manual is well done, in French, English and Japanese
I personally run XP Pro with a P4 3.4GHz config enough muscle 2GB of DDR2.
The software arturia often consume a lot of CPU, but the quality is l.
In any case, the 1.5 seems to be less greedy than the previous ones, and even that
their other VST's, and it seems stable trs.
A special effort was made in this release does, to stick as much as possible
the original CS80. I think they have strong trs. The chorus and the ring modulator
are much like the previous version, and sounds as well.
The VCO also have t amliors. They have even given the possibility of dtuner
as the voices on the right. (Except that the true c'tait not really a choice but a default
it also gave his characters).
Nothing digital can never replace the original CS80, but considering the price (4500 to RL Music)
and the difficulty to find one, let alone the weight and takes the place has, I could
you advise the CS80V. Even if one day I could afford the original, I would continue
even when used as one of Arturia.

Precision: APRS Arturia have contact me confirm a bug, I have a new file reu VST arsolu the bp. So now all is well!
This synth is gnial, if in addition we use an expression pedals. We can thus raprocher the original CS80.
To report a bug that does not now record their own patches. That should be the next time rsolu days
Once the installation rsolus pbs (specially in panther) this synth is one of the best I know.

SampleHunter's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Athlon 1.2 GHz, 512MB Ram
Stable software but consumes a lot of CPU
Dcidemment, they are really strong in Arturia. Those with AIM V Moog will not.
Although the CS-80 is not a "true modular", the possibilities of sound are amazing ... Fast Fashion
I am always fascinated at the sounds that you get from a basic waveform. I do not know the original, but its worth a clone numrique dtour.
The pros: the rich sound (dynamics, frquence), CHAC easy programming
The -: Some potentiomtres are difficult to change the mouse as a kid.
