Phase distortion synth with an 8-stage envelope.
Three sets of 8-stage envelope sections are used to modulate your sounds extensively. The first is used to modify the DCO pitches over time. Another 8-stage envelope section in the DCW is used to modify the Phase Angle over time (like filtering).
Finally the DCA amplifier also has an 8-stage envelope to modify the volume of sounds over time. For further tweaking the CZ-1000 employs some surprisingly analog effects. Four types of Vibrato make up a simple LFO-type section with triangle, square, ramp up or down waveforms as well as rate, depth and delay settings. Portamento adds that classic glide effect from one note to the next. Double up on the oscillators with 4-note polyphony. Built-in noise and ring modulation. It's also MIDI equipped with 4 monophonic multitimbral parts. However, with only 32 patches (16 preset, 16 user) storage is a bit slim.
Having said all that , this is one of my favourite synths , I know , I know but bare with me .
The Vibraphone layered with the Whistle sound with added portamento is just sublime , add a bit of space echo and its heaven !
It also has this really cool option to layer 2 patches which I love.
I have used this synth on countless songs and yes , its simple but super usable and that is ultimately how I judge a synth .
This particular specimen is really nice looking as I got it with the plastic still on the front, now removed but looks great !
