I got one of these just the other day and I love it! They used to have them all the time and I never was really impressed cause well 1: it was casio and 2: like most synth, the presets suck. Now that I've started to get the hang of it, I've realized what amazing and suprisingly punchy sounds you can get outta this thing!

got mine in 1985, my first ever programmable keyboard. i still love the envelopes on it - lets me do some wildly evolving pads, albeit with only 4 note polyphony. great for basses and monosynth sounds, especially with the "tone mix" function which lets you stack 2 patches (essentially a 4 oscillator monosynth). really cuts through on the bass end, suprising for such a little thing. hundreds of free sounds on the 'net as well, most of them very interesting indeed. mine has an internal modification from a company called BLACET RESEARCH called the INSTAMOD, lets you add modulation / vibrato with a ribbon controller (cheap piezo ribbon but replacable with radio shack nearby), again great for basses, especially those deep thuds. some decently cheezy electronic percussion as well. not analog sounding, but i will tell you that nothing else out there sounds quite like it, except maybe casio's own VZ line, which have more of just about everything but are insanely difficult to program (very like the DX series, in fact) and don't sound all that much better than the CZs, really. if you can find one of these, definitely worth picking up for $50 or less (new in 1985 mine was $125 - stunning!) don't expect to play it from the keyboard, though - use it as a module and you'll be just dandy.

I got this too for around 80 dollars and i thought it was a bit of crap at

first. However the more i started understanding how to program it

the more i took a liking to it. I mean the sounds to can program on it can be very complex and such. Also

It has two dco's but you can layer 1 sound onto another and have a sound

with 4 oscs. with each osc having its own pitch,envelope,dca,dcw ect.

You can make some really beautiful warm sounding vibraphony organ type sounds

that throw you into a trance. Memory is limited but you can just sysex dump

the sound onto your computer . It has a ring modulator too! its very cool and

cheap and if you come across it is worth getting.

I seen it being demo'ed at the Frankfurt Music Messe March 1985. I Purchased the first one to come into Northern Ireland at the top retail price (£349.00) that was a bargain. 14 years on, the CZ is still a vital part of my music production.
