Casio CZ-3000 Phase Distortion Synthesizer

   0 reviews  -  3496 views

    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.
