any casio phase distortion experts out there?

Post by ianthewalrus » Thu Jul 05, 2007 8:30 pm

so i got this casio cz-1000 cheap and it sounds awesome.
however, all i have to work with are some downloaded patches from the web and presets, because i can't figure out how to program quality patches using phase distortion. is anyone out there a phase distortion expert who can offer tips? or maybe know of a good web resource for phase distortion programming?

I always just programmed my CZ-101 like I would an analog synth. It has all the same parameters. I preferred to normalize all the parameters on a patch before I started programming, then work from left to right. I haven't played one a a couple years, but I remember there being a button to normalize each parameter.

The CZ-101 and 1000 are basically two parallel synths which can be combined. Best to program one first Osc->Filter->Amplifier before attacking the other one (if you are even planning to use the other one.

The envelopes are the most confusing part, but there is a diagram printed on the synth to help (at least that's how it was on the 101).

hey thanks! that's been very helpful. i've managed to make something now that kind of resembles a filter sweep, which is cool. much better than presets.

When I had a CZ, a lot of good sounds came from using ring modulation. one DCO would be slightly out of tune and ring modulated with the tuned DCO. That's my only tip. Other than that, just experiment. And don't forget to take advantage of the 8 stage envelopes.
