I noticed that using the ribbon in SUSTAIN I mode does not work correctly. From the CS-80 manual, p. 14:
"When the CS-80 is in SUSTAIN I mode, the ribbon only changes the pitch while you are holding down a key."
In other words, with the sustain slider up and in SUSTAIN I mode:
if you play a key, bend it with the ribbon, release the key, then release the ribbon, the pitch should stay at the bent pitch as the sustain dies away.
[continued from the manual]
"In SUSTAIN II mode, the ribbon wil also change the pitch during the sustain (after you let go of the keys)."
The CS-80V ribbon functions in SUSTAIN II mode only.
Please make the CS-80V ribbon work as it should in SUSTAIN I mode, as it is musically useful. Listen, for example, to the last sustained chord of the section immediately before UK's "Presto and Vivace."
