The original instrument was a mini revolution. Created to directly rival the ultra-popular Yamaha DX-7, Casio’s low-cost CZ range gave upcoming musicians the chance to use cutting edge digital sounds for the first time. While limited by the technology at the time, and confined by its hardware, the CZ-101 and CZ-1000 sound was loved by even big-name acts like Salt-N-Pepa, Madonna, Vince Clarke, and Van Halen.
Reborn for the modern musician, Arturia’s software reimagining perfectly captures the sound of the Casio, by carefully mapping, analyzing, and modelling its sound using their exclusive TAE ® technology, they have recreated every aspect of the synth engine. Not only that, they have updated its abilities to include exciting new features that would have been impossible to achieve on the original.
