I've recently bought a second-hand one for $50. The sounds are similar to yamaha's FM synthesis, although not of a such quality (although, in contrast with the DX7, for example, it has multitimbral capabilities). In fact, most of the sounds are crap, but there are about 20 interesting and about 10 really good ones. The keyboard is made of stupid small minikeys that are quite useless to play (I use a master keyboard for that). Contrary to the opinion of some reviewers, I find the PCM rythm section rubbish and useless, very inferior to the PD section. Globally, I'm quite happy and I find it adequate to the sum wasted on it.

I paid $69CDN for this keyboard at Cash-Converters. its sounds are pretty crap but the drum sequencer is pretty cool, 20 preset patterns and 10 user patterns. Also the last 4 patches can be edited with a CZ editor. And I made it blue! well...... thats all i can say.

I'll never forget it. It was 1988 when I created my first tape of music with the Casio CZ-230S. I still have that tape and the CZ-230S today. Unfortunately, the cassette tape is in better condition. Yet, the Casio CZ-230S was very satisfying. I thought it was the best thing of its time. I’m sure it wasn’t but no one could tell me otherwise. Creating, editing, saving and loading music was so very simple. I have no regrets in owning that synthesizer/keyboard.

Help me! I've owned a CZ230S since the mid 80's, and up until ten years ago I had a whale of a time playing around and compiling tracks with it. Then come the wife, children etc.. and unfortunately CZ230S had to go back in the box. I recentely decided to have a play with it, and to my dimise even though the drums work ok there is no synth sound. Does anyone know why? Can anyone help? I would be most appreciative. Thanks.

I played one in the navy exchange back in the 1980s.It did piss me off i could not get it to make a sound and had to wait a few days while a exchange worker figured out why.The internat volume was set to 0.I finally played it and it had kickass sounds.Remember the Brass ensemble on the SK1?This keyboard featured the same sound,only with fuller effect,and 49 keys with 8 note poly instead of 32 minikeys and 4 noty poly.I am currently searching for one in Jacksonville Florida.If any one has one to sell please email me with address,condition and cost.I am willing to trade this computer(pentium 200mmx,64mb ram,3gig harddrive,ati 8mb vga,win98se,free internet,336 ext modem)for a cz230s and cz101
