That's correct...the CZ synths require a handshake before accepting sysex dumps. I forget the exact details. Gotta love the early days of MIDI.

This is the Internet Archive for (I believe) CZ Rider's original Geocities page, with zip files of many, many CZ Patches. It appears the zip files are still downloadable.

Here is a zipped file of all the CZ sysex files. CZ-1 sysex have some extra bytes of info for names and velocity/aftertouch, so there are a few CZ-1 patches that I converted to CZ-101,1000,2000s,3000,5000 syx patches. Along with CZ-1 patches of the factory RC carts.
There was also an old site called "Temple of CZ" , and all those files are included in the zip file.

Just unzip and it should create folders for the different type files.

CZ Rider, Do you still have access to this .zip file? I'd really like to download it and give it a whirl.

Thanks

The page is long gone, but the wayback internet archive still has a copy.

Thanks so much for posting the link to those patches! I am going to try these with the Arturia CZ101. This is a great software synth, but it does not have all the original factory patches. I love those!

This is a video recorded in December of 1987, live at WBRA Television Studios in Roanoke, Virginia, featuring the mighty CZ-101 as my lead solo synth!
Unfortunately my CZ-101 was stolen from a studio in Hollywood in the early 90s. What a great synth!
