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?
