The CZ-3000 synthesizer used the same phase distortion engine as the CZ-101 and the CZ-1000, but added the following features:
+ The synthesizer had eight voices instead of four voices (16 oscillators instead of eight)
+ It was possible to split the keyboard (in other words, have some keys play one sound while other keys played another sound).
+ The synthesizer had 61 keys, not 49 keys.
+ There was a built-in stereo chorus effect
+ Instead of having just a pitch bend wheel, the CZ-3000 had both a pitch bend wheel and a modulation wheel.
