I just bought a used casio cz101 and have been having trouble getting the multi-voice mode to work. I read the manual and everything else on the synth works exactly as described, but I cant for the life of me get it to play more than two presets simultaneously.
In the manual it says that in mono (solo) mode the cz101 can operate as 4 separate monophonic synthesizers accepting midi data on 4 separate channels. If I select channel 1 as the basic channel, that means that it should be able to accept midi data on channels 1-4 to play 4 separate voices. So, I put the synth in solo mode, set the 4 voice channels up with 4 different presets, and then try triggering those sounds from my sequencer with 4 different patterns on channels 1-4. According to the manual this should work, but when I try to play the 4 different presets I get a bunch of garbage out. None of the presets sound right, and 2 of them usually sound like duplicates of each other.
I hope somebody else who has a cz101 or cz1000 can give me some help here. The multi mode was one of the reasons I bought this synth, and it would be a shame if I can't get it to work. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
