Description

Over a year in the making, the GX-80 is Cherry Audio's flagship synthesizer. Combining the unparalleled sound and features of the fabled GX-1 "Dream Machine" and its renowned descendant, the CS-80, the GX-80 is a transformative virtual synthesizer blending the essence of two groundbreaking instruments to create a powerhouse hybrid. Featuring the carefully crafted and intensely circuit-modeled DSP designs of award-winning developer Mark Barton, Cherry Audio has replicated every subtlety of the classics to create the most authentic emulation of its kind.

The GX-80 adeptly reintegrates the GX-1's distinctive features back into the CS-80 architecture, such as dual synth layers for twice the impact and additional waveforms with variable resonators. Plus, the GX-1's octave-up triangle wave and invert filter envelope control have been reincorporated. Most notably, GX-80 includes an expert reproduction of the legendary GX-1 filter that delivers exquisite timbres that even the mighty CS-80 cannot produce. For ultimate flexibility and expressive performance, GX-80 provides a split keyboard mode and a brilliant option to simulate polyphonic aftertouch with a monophonic aftertouch controller. With its innovative dual-layer interface, stunning sound presets and integrated studio-quality effects, GX-80 is more than a best-of-both-worlds interpretation of the past and far more than a replicant. The Cherry Audio GX-80 is an unprecedented gateway to the sounds and music of an unrealized future.
