I bought three Casio VS's. I like to say that they are all around the best instruments I ever bought so far. Iv created my own sounds. Sounds that are truly convincing. Please check out the tracks at

The Vz-1 was my first professional synth.I loved the keyboard action, 3 mod wheels slider for controlling the sounds.I use it for pads, synth strings and occassionally for an e-piano. When you put on a little external reverb and/or delay it just sounds wonderfull, really 80's. A few of my colleagues have a D-50 and M1 and must admit that the VZ-1 sounds a lot better.If you're looking for some 80ies sounds or maybe a great midi controller buy.If I would find a second one I would.

I bought one of these because I needed a controller keyboard, and as a replacement for my CZ-230S sounds...

Nice looking machine, with a lovely aqua-blue display! Also the best keyboard feel of any synth I've ever owned. Pity about those sounds!

Although capable of some powerful distorted leads/bells and some nice ethereal glassy (also available on the Evolution EVS-1) sounds, it just didn't have the variety of useful sounds I could get with the CZ. Casio, In their infinite wisdom, decided not to include the resonant waveforms that were available on the CZ's! Another bummer was the fact that it couldn't dynamically allocate it's voices. Something which was a bit backward at the time...

If you're looking for a controller keyboard with an unusual sound, then give it a go.

I think the $275 I paid was too steep for it (it looked so nice 'n' eighties, couldn't help myself). Nevertheless, I think its got loads of potential for cutting-edge fx, with its complex digital voices (ring-mod and stuff).
