it should be noted that the cs 80 detune due to over heating causing the "tuner" to change up due to heat fluctiations(SP?_)

Aftertouch description[edit]

In the body of the text, isn't is just describing polyphonic aftertouch? I changed it in the side-bar stats-box thing (whatever it's called) to poly-aftertouch, but left the text alone. --Andylindsay (talk) 22:05, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

CS-80 or CS80[edit]

Shouldn't the article use Yamaha naming convention, i.e. CS80 _without_ hyphen? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.205.146.224 (talk) 13:38, 5 March 2016 (UTC)

CS-80 is given at Vintage Synth Explorer which is generally a reliable source. Likewise, the Arturia emulation uses CS-80. If you look at the image on Commons, it also says CS-80. Here is the original instruction manual for the synth, which says CS-80. It is reasonably certain that CS-80 is the correct version.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 16:36, 5 March 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, I just looked at Yamaha site, and it also says CS-80, so I withdraw my comment.

List of users[edit]

I'm sorely tempted to remove this section, because at this rate the article should be retitled as List of CS-80 users. Most of them are unsourced anyway. Vintage Synth Explorer gives some of the more notable users, while the list here has attempted to be exhaustive and ended up with serious WP:TRIVIA problems.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 05:42, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

Re this edit: some of them can be put back if they are sourced, but most of the "citation needed" examples had been unsourced for months or years. Also, the article is not intended to be a list of everyone who ever used a CS-80, sourced or otherwise. This has WP:TRIVIA and WP:TOPIC issues.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 04:53, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
Hi, ianmacm. Most users listed on that section are easily found on reliable sources including Sound On Sound (magazine) and album credits found on Discogs. I already started adding citations. --Clusternote (talk) 04:57, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
For some reason this article has acquired an exhaustive list when a sprinkling like the one given at Vintage Synth Explorer would be adequate. If you listed all of the people who had used a Minimoog the article would go on for ever. This isn't what synth articles are for, and in its previous form the list was longer than the actual description of the CS-80.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 05:02, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
On the same issue on similar article Roland Jupiter-8, I had wait for several years, and also I had tried to search reliable sources, however no source were found, thus I had delete most entries without reliable sources.
On this article, also You should wait for completion of citations for several months. thanks, --Clusternote (talk) 04:57, 7 May 2016 (UTC)

@Ianmacm:: stop vandalism. Without proper reason, you already deleted Bibliography (NOT the "notable user") two times. --Clusternote (talk) 05:09, 7 May 2016 (UTC)

The Bibliography section is still in the article. In Minimoog, there is a paragraph about the use of the instrument. This is in line with policy, as bare lists are discouraged per WP:TRIVIA. There is a separate article List of Moog synthesizer players. Perhaps there could be a new article List of Yamaha CS-80 players as it isn't suitable to have a long and sprawling list here.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 05:17, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
The citations in the article body are not covered CS-80 itself at all, and even the Syntopia (reference [2]) is not the reliable source.

Thus we need proper Bibliography section for future improvement of article. --Clusternote (talk) 05:28, 7 May 2016 (UTC)

DONE: Old section Yamaha CS-80#Notable users was split into new article List of Yamaha CS-80 notable users. --Clusternote (talk) 05:52, 7 May 2016 (UTC)

I disagree that this should be split, such lists have little notability on their own. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 08:38, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

I wouldn't have objected to putting some of it back, but far too many of the examples had been unsourced for months and it was developing into a classic WP:TRIVIA section. Wikipedia articles about synthesizers are about the synths themselves, not exhaustive lists of the people who have used them.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 11:14, 16 May 2016 (UTC)
