I think VZ-1 was an impressive instrument. I sold it about 5 years ago, and I still regret it. It had the kind of richness in its sound that I cannot approximate with any sample playback synthesizer. VZ-1 had only 8 basic waveforms (including noise generator). However, it was possible with those 8 waveforms to emulate various instruments very nicely. Basses, organs, electric pianos, and strings coming out of the VZ-1 are the sounds I am still missing in most new synthesizers.

Yes, I bought a new one at the time it was released. In retrospect it was the worst synthesizer I had ever bought. It looked sleek, had a nice blue graphical display and the electric piano's were ok. This synth is a programmer's dream or nightmare. With its many modules you could choose an interaction between those modules. You could form two modules and let those modules modululate the second pair of modules which modulated another pair etc. etc. Doing this you could get a nice distortion sound. To me the VZ-1 could also sound like a quasi DX7, especially some bass patches. I found the keyboard very light and especially useful when playing long sessions. RAM/ROM cards were impossible to get here in The Netherlands. So I had to fiddle around with it. Well, better walk to the moon, you'd be back sooner than getting a decent edited sound out of the VZ-1. Buy it if you need a masterkeyboard with light action, but do not pay to much.
