Behringer CS Mini is like a cross between Yamaha CS-80 and Korg Volca

 

What if we could put a Yamaha CS-80 synth voice into a tiny box?’ asks Behringer

 

Check out this “design proposal”

 

Behringer latest teaser, a tiny take on a voice from Yamaha’s iconic CS-80, but in the Korg Volca-like body of their ‘Soul’ series synthesizers, is very much just a “design proposal” at this stage.

 

Behringer says that this slider-loaded touch keyboard instrument may be capable of up to three notes of polyphony, and would come with MIDI support and a motion sequencer.

 

Behringer previously announced a much larger clone of the CS-80, noting in 2021 that it had got its VCF and envelopes performing “100% identically” to the original.

 

Here’s what they shared about the CS Mini:

 

“What about we’d manage to get an authentic CS80 voice into this little box, with MIDI and motion sequencer, perhaps even 3-note polyphony.

This is a design proposal only but we think it would be possible to build this jewel for US$ 99 retail.”

 

There’s no mentioned on any kind of release date, but Behringer reckons that it could put this thing together and sell it for $99. Interested?
