Rick Jelliffe

Rick Jelliffe has released CS-80R, a VSTi for Windows designed to emulate the "juiciness, funkiness and felinity" of the Yamaha CS- series of polyphonic analog synths. The CS-80R is not intended to be an exhaustive virtual reconstruction of the CS-80 - it is just as much influenced by the rougher sounds of the CS-60 and GX-1, and has a different panel design.


  • Two lines per voice, each with osc, high and low filter, PWM, pan mixable sine, and modulation oscillator.
  • Two extended envelope generators shared by both lines.
  • Sub-oscillator.
  • Ring modulator.
  • Velocity, aftertouch, foot pedal control.
  • Different voicing and sustain modes.
  • Four different filter models.
  • Keyboard control.
  • Portamento.
  • Velocity sensitive note bend.
  • Several CPU-reduction strategies.
  • MIDI automation.

CS-80R costs US$29.95 and a demo version is available.
