I like them phat like that. This board has been rocking my ring for the last seven years. It has fallen out of a moving car and has keys superglued back on. The flute patch is just like a mellowtron and the hard edged funky sounds will change your life if played through a cry-baby. For the luddites amongst- this is the first keyboard i've found that I can program live. which is nice........

This board rocks!! I got it because I had heard it was a cheap alternative to a DX-7, and it does make some nice metallic DX type sounds....but there's more...it makes some sweet analog sounds too. The 8 stage envelope is a little tricky to figure out, but other than that, it is a breeze to program. I paid $162.50 for it and it was money very well spent.

I just got one, so I'm unsure of all it's capabilties. It's great for basses, bell-tones and sounds from outerspace. Pads, strings or anything realisic...forget it. I can sound analog at times, in a harsh way of course. Good for the price they are going for now.

The Casio is pretty cool, especially if you use a PC editor/librarian. You can quickly and easily make the sounds you want. I've had the best results with bass and noise sounds. (On accident once, I made this awesome arpeggiated bass sound!) The best thing to do is throw a little reverb on it, and use its odd sounds multi-timbrally to spice up your songs. A blurp here, a ghostly fizzle there, a fart here, a bleep there... :)

I've noticed that everyone is hot over the CZ-101/1000, but they skip over the CZ-3000, which is theoretically, twice as powerful(8part-multi instead of 4 and I think it has double the polyphony). They must be attracted to the smaller size board. I admit that I am too. I have a CZ-1000 too and it just looks cooler. The CZ-3000, however, has a big beast like board and it looks like no other synth I've seen. All in all, my CZ-3000 doesn't seem to have the frustrating battery problems that the CZ-101/1000 do - which is important.

The Cz series has a unique sound that you wont't find anywhere else. If you learn how to use it you can get pretty fat sounds, especially the resonant waveforms can give a nice filter sound. Compared to other digital synths of the middle eighties i think it's really something different.
