Im trying to fix my CZ5000 now cos i powered it up one day (after 2 years under my bed) and it wouldnt work. Turns out d batteries had all melted inside so must be a short circuit somewhere. Moral: don't store your synth without removing d batteries! But make sure you save to tape/cartridge 1st. Or at least renew them every year. It was my 1st synth and i want to get it working again cos i miss it even tho i have a M1, Triton n recently aquired a Juno 60. The seq was a total pain to work with but d sounds were cool man. D bass especially, with d 'pulse' wave. Not thick like analog but has its own character. I do have all d manuals n even d box but it's back home in brunei and Im working in uk at d moment. Sorry!

Very interesting noise source. Cheap and unusual - just what the analogue synth were for us seven years ago. It may easily cost more than $1000 in seven years:)

well, i have used a great many different keyboards, and i make it my business to read the manual for each one i use.

i finally ditched my entire home studio for a SoundChaser PC system which is functional enough to have ALMOST been worth it.

all of the freeware i get off the internet replaces all of my junk. BUT! I am regretting that i got rid of my CZ-5000 because it's sequencer was the best ARPEGGIATOR on the planet, and the ring modulation sounds haven't yet been fully copied by other manufacturers.

interestingly, the CZ technology seems to have influenced every phase-distortion synth ever since. I feel sorry for Casio.

One thing i would like to try, is to modify the CZ sounds using HyperMIDI on the mac. there are a few extra sound styles available using illegal binary codes for waveforms.

Cool and super crazy! it has these cool 7stage envelopes, that gives this synth a "killer chrimp" sound. The drawback is that it is wery limited posibilitys to change the timbre.

Please be careful with what you write, the VZ-10m is a completely different syth. While CZs work and sound mostly as analog synths even if they're 100% digital, VZs are very, very close to Yamaha's FM synths. Technically CZs work on Phase Distorsion Synthesis P.D., While VZs use IPD I stands for Interactive. CZs in my opinion are much, much better than VZs modules...I've just sold my VZ'8m whith no regret...But still missing my warm and evoling CZ-101 and CZ-5000 sounds... By the way CZs has no effects at all..4 what???
