A friend of mine recently GAVE me his cz-1000! He thought it was crap, but you have to spend a bit of time with it to find the nasty sounds lurking inside. I use mine with the sound quest editor/librarian which is most useful for creating new patches and storing them. I have had unbeliavable results: Warm analogues and farty basses to ear-bleeding noise and bizzaro fx!!!!! I'm thinking of getting another. HOWEVER, THERE IS ONE THING THAT IS KILLING ME.

the memory. I have asked about 20 users if they would open up the back of their CZs - not the D cell battery plate, but the whole Keyboard casing and find out what little crap calculator battery is in there. Or is there one? Mine has a clip that looks like it would hold a hearing aid-sized battery, but there was none in there when I got it. What do I do? I presently don't keep the D-cells in there either. Will it keep the memory of a new patch if I shut it off? In any case, I can't dump the sounds I make in Midi Quest into my CZ's memory. I WOULD LIKE TO SOLDER IN A NEW BATTERY TO HOLD THE MEMORY - HAS ANYONE DONE THIS? Or are we forever doomed to deal with D-cells? PLEASE HELP

Got it 2 weeks ago. It's got a lot of potential, basses so far are nice, pads can be coaxed from it with a little work. so far so good. I'll probably be using it on a new tune or two. check it out.

For the money I got this synth I'm not complaining. It takes a while to get use to, but you can program really cool sounds on it. Made some great speedgarage basses and also some nice dirty leads. For the buck its a real monster!

i have a love/hate relationship with experimenting with the programming, i've come up with some cool sounds-however-i lost most of them by accident when it came unplugged-this has happened more than once.i've looked forever for memory cartriges, but with no luck. if anyone could help me out, i would consider them a hero
