Regarding the Pro-53, I would love to vent about it a bit. I HATE that inteface! Such tiny type, some of it in "shadows" - what were they thinking? Interface design is IMPORTANT. And it is one of the things Arturia excels at.

So I very much support an Arturia P5 emulation. Is it an important synth? Yes. More important than a CS80? Definitely yes. The CS80 was a boutique instrument for the very wealthy; the P5 was a "people's" instrument heard on far more recordings, producing a sound pallette that is instantly recognizable.

I suppose if you are trying to do something absolutely "new" and are not interested in retro sounds, it may seem pointless to have another one - but I for one would like to hear one GOOD one and forget any that came before.

Armando.

Incidentally, I think posting images from the magazine in KVR must constitute copyright violation. If it doesn't, perhaps someone would be good enough to post some here?

I support P5 and VS emulation too, at the same time prophet V is an emulation or P5 and P-VS which are very good vintage synths and here it even could merge the two.
But about the CS80 was a boutique instrument for the very wealthy,
I say no.
A Steinway Grand model D, is a very expensive instrument, much more
than a CS80, but what we only could say, it's a very good instrument
to play very good music. In my opinion CS80 could be compared
in the same way.

Oh, well , if you make it only a matter of economics and through this you trace a difference between instruments for rich people and for "poor" people ( if you think that 3000$ were few money at the times)  rather than comparing the inner qualities of the instrument you will surely be glad to play forever on your virtual Mgs, miniMgs, arps and prophets without velocity and aftertouch because a people's instrument like the Prophet didn't support it....it's like you're trying to compare a Trabant to a Ferrari and tell the Trabant is better just because it was more affordable....come on !

Also it seems that SCI was more boutique than Yamaha, even if there were more Prophets produced than CS80s :wink:  :wink:  :wink:

I have come around to this way of thinking - even if it WAS too expensive for a lot of working musicians, who cares? The beauty is, now anyone can have one (or something very much like one) because of Arturia's excellent work.

I am wondering - does anyone know of any use of the instrument in funk? I am really only familiar through Vangelis's work...

Of course, Georges, I think Armando was looking for some usage of the CS80 into funky music, anyway I suggest also "With a little luck" (Wings), "Dune" ( K.Schulze, you will recognize the CS from the first second , hihihi ) but we're not into funky any more.

Yes you are right, I was surprised you could forget Eddie Jobson,
but I was out of subjet.

You are right, I read in synthmuseum.com and so forth that Herbie Hancock and Stevie Wonder used it but do not know on what recordings. Still interesting to get a list of others who played it.

My God... I had both of these on LP back in the day, and had completely forgotten about them. Thanks, I think I'll pick them up again!
