Maybe it's just me because I'm still in amazed how something like this can be synthesized from thin air. I really like some of the factory patches in this old beast. It is a real shame FM got itself a bad name - PCs fitted with junky 4OP generators didn't help. It's clearly a very powerful form of synthesis which demands more respect. At times where FM might lack realism it's made up for in buckets with controlability and modulation. This is a very rough improvisation using factory patch INT16 <strings>:

Finally here is a typical thick layered choir sample from my recently restored Emulator II. There is something really quite special about the sound of this beast - almost like sonic chocolate! In this case I've just played chords in case some want to sample the results:

Here is a quick warts and all demo of the Microwave I - please note all the aliasing, distortion and popping is for free

i dunno, i have heard a lot of sounds on the CZ series that don't sound that 80's or vintage, but the DX7 (or even better the DX7 II) can still sound completely modern, and i don't think the CZ can, i think it's down to the fuzziness of the CZ series in their sound, 80's recordings always seem to have a fuzz surrounding them, and the CZ just sounds like that.
good characteristic if ya ask me
They are one of those types of synth you buy in passing just to play with and see what happens.
