Arturia CZ V Software Instrument

Throw it back to the 1980s! The Arturia CZ V produces the sounds of the Casio CZ-1 and CZ-101 with over 400 factory presets so you can get to playing.

The Arturia CZ V is a software reimagining of Casio's(R) CZ-1 and CZ-101 synthesizers, designed as a response to the FM instruments of the '80s. Explore the distinctly malleable sounds of phase distortion synthesis, reshaped with cutting-edge plugin flexibility.

Casio's phase distortion synthesis was a relative of FM but simpler to use, achieving patches that sounded both 'digital' and 'analog' with equal ease.

It became a sonic staple for artists including Eurythmics, Salt-N-Pepa, and Vince Clarke (Depeche Mode, Yaz, Erasure), who famously stacked up eight CZ-101 synths and a sequencer. CZ V gives you more of what the CZ was loved for in every way - and more.

Expertly Engineered
DSP crew reverse-engineered the core code of the CZ, then added features to make phase distortion even more compelling today.

Shockingly Flexible
The CZ series is used on all kinds of songs because it produced so many sounds so well. Let CZ V do the same for you.

Wringing a ton of sonic range out of just a handful of parameters, CZ V is one of the quickest paths from a sound in your head to sound in your speakers.
