Virtual CZ From Plugin Boutique £37 - 35% Discount

Plugin Boutique present VirtualCZ, inspired by an iconic series of digital synthesizers made in the 1980s. Watch as Russ relives this iconic synth.

We are pleased to be able to offer the community this iconic synth at the great price of just £37, which is a 35% discount.

Many people fondly remember the CZ synths and they have become retro-classics that are highly sought after, having been used on countless techno, house, rave and synth-pop records in the late 80s and early 90s.
 
Many artists still use the CZ today for its unique sounds, including great pads and synth strings, screaming leads, big basses, weird FX, metallic percussion and above all RAVE ORGANS.
 
Like many timeless synths, it has a unique sonic quality and will be a beneficial addition to anyone’s synth collection

 

VirtualCZ - For The First Time User : Faithful Emulation, Great New Sounds

If you are new to the CZ you’ll find that VirtualCZ delivers the same sound quality as its hardware predecessor, along with new features that bring its sound up to date.
  • As with its hardware inspiration, VirtualCZ uses Phase Distortion, which is similar to FM  Synthesis but easier to program.
  • Big stereo UNISON sounds (new feature!) - great for modern synth stabs.
  • Familiar ADSR envelopes (or switch to 8 Stage MSEG for the purists!)
  • 200 quality presets featuring both retro and modern sounds. 

VirtualCZ - For The Experienced CZ User : Great New Features And A Modern Workflow 

If you are familiar with the CZ synths, we think you will find VirtualCZ faithfully emulates the sound of the hardware in both sound and feel, also offering some great new features.
  • VirtualCZ mirrors the synthesis architecture of the original.
  • All key synthesis functions are on  the front panel, with graphic envelope displays - no more menus!
  • It can load and transmit CZ patches (it functions as a sysex editor for the hardware).
