There's some other soft synth that's closer to a CS-80 than Arturia's?

The closest you can get to a CS80 is the CS60

The closest you’ll ever get to a CS80 is the CS60. In fact, you can achieve much on the CS80 territory with the 60. Many times, the exact same experience and sound.
Partially because many of the tracks that have the 80 used a single layer which, the CS60 has. And also, because its the same voice cards in both as well as the CS50.

This video settle's, once and for all what the closest thing to a CS80 will ever be.
