Description
Casio VZ series utilize Interactive Phase Distortion synthesis (iPD synthesis). Although named similarly, this is much more similar to Yamaha-style phase modulation synthesis than to Casio-style PD: the modulators in iPD are oscillating waveforms, rather than the angular functions of the original PD. Thus the CZ and VZ engines are quite different and not directly compatible, filling different sonic and architectural niches.

Interactive Phase Distortion (iPD) Modules that can be arranged and connected in four sets of internal lines: A, B, C, and D.

Each module consists of DCO and DCA that can be mixed, used for RING modulation. or for phase distortion.
