CZ V is a software reimagining of Casio’s® CZ-1 and CZ-101 synthesizers, designed as a response to the FM instruments of the ‘80s. Explore the distinctly malleable sounds of phase distortion synthesis, reshaped with cutting-edge plugin flexibility.
- Digital done differently, Modeling done flawlessly.
Casio’s phase distortion synthesis was a relative of FM but simpler to use, achieving patches that sounded both ‘digital’ and ‘analog’ with equal ease.
- Expertly Engineered
Our DSP crew reverse-engineered the core code of the CZ, then added features to make phase distortion even more compelling today.
- Shockingly Flexible
The CZ series is used on all kinds of songs because it produced so many sounds so well. Let CZ V do the same for you.
- CZ = EZ
Wringing a ton of sonic range out of just a handful of parameters, CZ V is one of the quickest paths from a sound in your head to sound in your speakers.
We amped up the CZ with up to 32 voices of polyphony, four FX slots, eight envelopes, and everything but a flux capacitor.
