An accurate reproduction of the CS-80

GX-80 is not merely another emulation of the CS-80. The iconic GX-1's enormous dual-layers, additional waveforms, and distinctive filters are adapted into the GX-80, giving it the power of two CS-80s and then some! The result is a massive dual-layer voicing architecture with 16 polyphonic voices per layer, capable of simultaneously playing two separate CS-80 style sounds in a split or stacked layer mode when supplemented with GX-80's independent layer volume and panning controls.

The GX-80 features a split keyboard mode and support for both polyphonic and monophonic aftertouch controllers to deliver the most expressive performance possible. A novel "last-note priority" option for simulating poly aftertouch response with a monophonic channel aftertouch controller has also been added by Cherry Audio.

The GX-80 is a unique creation deserving of the "flagship" moniker thanks to its dual-layer interface, over 1,000 gorgeous presets created by master sound designers, and integrated studio-quality effects.

GX-80 Features

  • A best-in-class virtual instrument based on two monumental analog classics: the GX-1 and CS-80

  • Integrates the extended features of the GX-1 with all of the functionality of its descendant, the CS-80, for an absolutely immense sound experience; essentially, two CS-80s and more!

  • Massive dual-layer voicing architecture with 16 polyphonic voices per layer: two different CS-80 style sounds simultaneously playable, in either a keyboard split or stacked layer mode, with discrete controls for layer volume and panning

  • All GX-1 and CS-80 voicing parameters reproduced, including the GX-1's unique oscillator-level filtered waveforms, octave-up triangle wave, and invert filter envelope control

  • Precision recreation of both the legendary CS-80 and unmatched GX-1 filters

  • Four polyphonic voice ranks, each with a voltage-controller oscillator, resonant highpass and lowpass filters, noise generator, sine wave, dual envelope generators, and a velocity-sensitive VCA

  • Sub oscillator LFO for each layer with sine, sawtooth, ramp, square, sample and hold, and noise intended for modulation, with tempo sync

  • Recreation of the memorable CS ring modulator that modulates the summed output of each pair of ranks with its own independent oscillator

  • Coarse pitch range setting for each oscillator in traditional organ footage of 16', 8', 5 1/3', 4', 2 2/3' and 2', as well as the 3 1/5' and 2 2/7' footages exclusive to the GX-1

  • Virtual pitch ribbon controller precisely modeled on the actual behavior of the original

  • GX-1 specific controls clearly distinguished from standard CS-80 control parameters

  • Independent rank panning and independent layer stereo effects chain for expansive and breathtaking stereo tones

  • Tone Selector includes each of the original CS-80 factory presets plus user sound storage

  • Panel Control for selecting layers, with a utility function for exchanging settings between ranks in a layer, the Lower and Upper sound layers, or even between presets

  • Over 1,000 essential presets that make the most of every unique aspect of the GX-80, crafted by a talented and diverse group of sound design veterans

  • Studio-quality integrated effects: chorus/rotary, flange/phaser, digital/tape delay with sync, and reverb, including our acclaimed "Galactic" reverb algorithm, with global or dual layer modes

  • Expressive touch response worthy of the originals: velocity sensitive with support for both polyphonic and monophonic aftertouch, plus a unique "last-note priority" mode for simulated polyphonic aftertouch response

  • Complete MIDI control and DAW automation for all controls, with easy-to-use MIDI learn and mapping (Preset and Global)

  • Cherry Audio's popular Focus zoom-in feature, as well as standard UI zoom and resize with drag

  • Highly optimized coding for optimal performance with ultra-low CPU load

  • User-adjustable oversampling control
