Text from the video :
  • My Yamaha CS80 synthesizer. The string sounds on this are amazing. Look at Blade Runner that was scored with a CS80 keyboard by Vangelis. This is recorded using my home video camera and its built in microphone. In the future I intend to post a much better video. Hopefully this gives you an idea of what the CS80 sounds like.
