Casio VZ-1 Interactive Phase Distortion Synthesizer

   0 reviews  -  1254 views
    Description
    Amazing Synthesis Versatility Thanks to Casio's All-new iPD Sound Source. Casio's all-new "Interactive Phase Distortion" (iPD) sound source system actually consists of 8 independent "modules" (M1 to M8). Each of these modules contains a DCO and a DCA, and is capable of generating independent waveforms. In the iPD system, the wave generated by any module can be used in either of two ways; to produce audible sounds or to modify waves generated by other modules.

    The 8 iPD sound source modules work in associated pairs that are called "Internal Lines,", or simply "lines". There are 4 internal lines - A, B, C and D

    The waveforms generated by both modules in any line can be used together in three different ways. They can be mixed, or one of the waveforms can be used to modulate the other for RING modulation or as the PHASE of a succeeding line.

    Instant Recall of up to 256 Sounds and 256 Operation Memories

    64 presets give you a wide range of vocal versatility. And with the use of a standard ROM card, the VZ-10M gives you incredible tonal expansion potential - up to 128 patches and 128 keyboard setups are literally at your fingertips. What's more, you can store up to 64 sounds and 64 operation memories on an optional RAM card, for even greater freedom of timbral expression.
