Casio CZ-5000Published on 02/26/09 at 15:10
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
The CZ-5000 is in the range of synths Cz between the Cz-3000 (his little brother who does not availing oneself of squenceur) and Cz-1 (his big brother, which owns the VLOC and aftertouch). Visually, it's a tank: just for its appearance, it's worth it.

Its polyphony is 8 channels (16 votes when only one of the two oscillators is used. It is fitted with two wheels: modulation and pitch bend, two outputs (left and right), catch midi in and out ( not through), a connection to magnto (taken "MT"), a slot for ram. The location for the batteries is very convenient: it is the power board, and accessible using a trap (risk of runs very limited so). It has a `effect: a chorus. ditables Sounds...…

The CZ-5000 is in the range of synths Cz between the Cz-3000 (his little brother who does not availing oneself of squenceur) and Cz-1 (his big brother, which owns the VLOC and aftertouch). Visually, it's a tank: just for its appearance, it's worth it.

Its polyphony is 8 channels (16 votes when only one of the two oscillators is used. It is fitted with two wheels: modulation and pitch bend, two outputs (left and right), catch midi in and out ( not through), a connection to magnto (taken "MT"), a slot for ram. The location for the batteries is very convenient: it is the power board, and accessible using a trap (risk of runs very limited so). It has a `effect: a chorus. ditables Sounds are on the synth itself or through a editor (pc, mac, atari).

This synth is 100% digital creation area. It uses synthse dveloppe in the 1980s by Casio and its own: the phase distortion. Here is a DEFINITIONS found on the internet:
Appeared the same era as synthse FM, phase distortion synthse by using an algorithm that causes distorion phase of the original signal: the oscillator numriques read speed reverse frquence s desire that the lists of values ​​for the amplitude of a sinusoidal wave. To distort the phase, it suffices to vary the playback speed. This allows PROCD gnrer one every single Periodic waveforms (sawtooth, square pulse ...) but also more complex waveforms wave component single (double sinus trapze, sawtooth more square etc..).

Synths range Cz possdent do not filter but uses synthse can do without.
The CZ-5000 availing oneself of other options: a monaural mode, a split, a performance mode (called "mix"), a glide, a willingness trmolo adjustable (rate, depth, forms wave), a gnrateur noise, a ring modulator, and portamento.
It is finally equipped with a squenceur.

UTILIZATION

At the programming level, especially as regards the envelopes DEFINITIONS (which can be quite complex), it is quite complicated.

SOUNDS

Sounds like those that a synthetic analogue may gnrer: one does not feel like playing on a synthetic digital creation area. It can produce (including, but not only) of sweeps, sounds sour, tablecloths, sound "alien" or psychedelic. I add that it has a `very special chorus, very recognizable, which gives a punch to the sounds of hell.

OVERALL OPINION

I know this synth since the late 1980s, and so has a `four years. Much I enjoy its sound, and a Manir Gnrale is an instrument quite endearing: its design is very special, timeless (even he does not " 1980), with its big square buttons and its massiveness. It may acqurir one for a modest price: the price-quality ratio is excellent. With exprience, I would do this election, or the j'achterais Cz-1, a little more complete.
