Damn, JMP! :shock: What a great set of demos =P~ And to think that I had a chance to get an Emulator II for a quite reasonable price, and turned it down....... #-o


Anyways, in case anybody wants to hear what Moog Opus 3 or Logan String Melody sound like...

Opus - Dynacord VRS-23 for reverb, no other fx or EQ, bad chops for playing.

Logan - some previous owner had modded this Logan with a built-in phaser circuit. Reverb from UAD Plate 140, some EQ. I couldn't think of anything to play, hence the Carpenter-ish lick.

Not really a synthesizer (It's more of a large string machine/organ, So I'm not sure if I can post this :? )

Who would I contact if I wanted to add an audio demo to a synth page?
The demo's for the Casio CZ range are deplorable at best and don't show off what the CZs can really do. I've got loads of youtube videos and I've just finished an audio demo of my CZ3000 that could be used.
Casio CZ-3000 audio demo at zShare
In this demo no external effects are used, this is all the CZ-3000. The only exception is the last patch which has stereo delay applied (bonus points if you can guess the song used for this patch). All the patches have the CZ's internal chorus unit applied. I've gotten some very analogue like sounds of my CZ :)
The sweeping strings and the faux DX7 e-Piano are my favorites of the bunch.
Sorry that some of the recordings glitch, I'm using a PB G4 right now and it tends to flake out with osx leopard while recording.

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 :)

haha... digging the intro from Cubic :wink: the FM strings are also very impressive!
Do you even post on vse bro?

CZ's always seem to have an extra thick layer of 80's cheese surrounding them 8)

i dont think they do. With a little work some people dont beleive that its a CZ. I think DX tend to have a more 80s tone about them, but i guess that comes from them being hidiousely over used in the 80s.

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 8)

I adore the better FM synths - esp. DX-7 II, TG77 and TX802. The CZ3000 is great too but IMO for a narrower number of applications. They do compliment each other quite well though BUT I wouldn't say they actually sound that similar. The CZs are capable of some very raw, buzzy and very digital sounds and some mad FX as well as some typically cheezy organs - which in the right application is great :)

Like everything - each one has it's place - neither are junk by any stretch of the imagination. And they are SYNTHS ie not yet another tiresome S+S box - so you can use your imagination and come up something new :D

I sometimes wish I had a CZ of my own - I used to borrow a friend's unit when I wanted to tinker. They are one of those types of synth you buy in passing just to play with and see what happens.

Yeah it was a passing synth for me because it was so cheap (£130) and it's ended up the most over used synth in my setup. It's buzzing tones and smooth effects fit very well in Techno and chill-out music.

Don't know if this has been posted before but this guy really does some excellent work with the JV-1080, without expansions. You should check out all his videos.
