The Deckard's Dream from Black Corp is a modern re-imagining of the classic Yamaha CS-80, bringing the sounds of Vangelis into a 21st-century workflow complete with MPE support and a considerably smaller footprint than its predecessor. While it is not a 1:1 clone of the CS-80, the Deckard's Dream faithfully emulates the workflow of the original, bringing the sounds of this inaccessible dream synth into the hands of the masses.

Deckard's Dream is 8-voice polyphonic, with two independent layers per voice. The original waveshapes are reproduced via discrete waveshapers, and a variety of tuning settings allow for everything from a tightly tuned feel to vintage detuning peculiarities. The oscillator section offers saw and square shapes, as well as PWM via dedicated sine LFO. Each voice offers a lowpass and highpass filter with independent resonance settings, as well as a dedicated filter and VCA ADSR envelopes.

The magic of Deckard's Dream comes to the surface when combined with an MPE-capable controller such as the Roger Linn Linnstrument or Roli Seaboard. Capable of polyphonic aftertouch and polyphonic pitch bend, Deckard's Dream can easily expand into an expressive instrument with touch-controlled vibrato, pressure-induced filtering effects, and much more.

Deckard's Dream is an extremely modern take on classic synthesizer design. Place it into a standard rack frame, add a controller (MPE or not), and get lost in sounds from Vangelis to pure outer space.
