This is to Salenico below me, are you sure it's the Casio HZ600 you got???, as you've just sed "it's great synth,maybe the best in the world" MAYBE you should try comparing it to a Juno 106?!!!!!!!!!

I hate my HZ600! it's useless, the keys don't go low enough even with a transpose right down, the LPF is so NOT fat, the resonance doesn't self resonate and that means no fat too, and chorus is rubbish and you can't even LFO the filter cuttoff! it lacks so many features of it's time! even a the old moog synths has more features which is almost like 2 decades older. they've even nicked the alpha dail idea off the alpha juno!

down here is a "marks out of 5" I saw 1 but I actually mean -5 as in CRAP!

One of the first keyboard I worked with and still probably the worst. Awful sound, badly built and a LCD display which was small and almost useless. If you want a retro sound the only Casio could produce go for one of their MT portable keyboard which were ahead of their day....This keyboard was a mistake when I purchased it then and now.

Talking about the sounds on this synth are easy! it's anorexic!!! I've had this for (it's my dads really) for 17 years and I've only used it in the last 4 years and it's soooo weak!! it's 80s no bass what so ever weak no bass cheesy edam cheese! nothing like a juno what so ever! I hate it! wots the point in having a block of no bass cheddar instead of a fat synth! a juno could kick this anorexic fool synth with no bass anytime! Don't get it for fat, get it for 80s no bass cheese!

I used one of these as a MIDI controller for a year or two. The keyboard was actually quite nice for usch a cheapie - not touch sensitive, of course, but playable and quite strongly sprung. MIDI split is a great feature too.

Sounds are basically appalling. None of the 32 waveforms has any bite or character. Like the Korg Poly 800, it has only one filter for all voices. And it's a dog. Little more than a tone control.

Don't buy this for sounds, unless you have already budgeted for a decent multiFX unit or already won one. Put enough FX on anything and it will sound OK.
