All CZ Series Synth Manuals (PDF format)
The Casio CZ-101, CZ-1000, CZ-1, CZ-3000 and CZ-500, even the CZ-230S manuals are included in English in this amazing and informative package.

A copy of the Casio Sound Synthesis Handbook (PDF format)
This 30 page guide gives an alternative and more intuitive overview of the CZ series of synthesizers, exploring the concepts of sound synthesis, tonal colorations, the function of a synthesizer in achieving musical and non-musical sounds, and much more. Many people prefer this manual over the more technical Operation Manual. It definitely inspires a new way of looking at sound creation through the CZ series of synthesizers. Enhanced reproduction in English.

Over 2500 patches for the CZ series of synthesizers in Sysex format
These patches encompass all types of sounds, including: Basses, Brass Sounds, Guitars, Organs, Drums, Percussion, Pads, Strings, and a wide variety of effects from spacey to powerful! These patches will show you just how impressive the CZ's can sound! These patches have been assembled over the past 10 years through many sources from all over the world including: the web, newsgroups, friends, patch generators, magazines, and other professional and amateur programmers.

Over 500 original CZ series sound patches in Sysex format
These highly regarded patches are from my personal collection and are available nowhere else!  These patches have been carefully created, tuned and balanced for my original compositions and cover tune performances. They include sounds such as Mellotron, Electric Guitars, Hammond Organs, Vox/Farfisa Organs, Theremin, Big Drum Sounds, a variety of sounds with echo, reverb, and phasing effects, and a multitude of cool, hip, synth and percussion sounds. Created to perform songs by artists such as Yes, ELP, Genesis, Camel, Ultravox, Thomas Dolby, New Musik, JM Jarre, Naked Eyes, Depeche Mode, New Order, Erasure, Eurhythmics, Talking Heads, Cars, Van Halen, Rush, Deep Purple, Yello, Garbage, Moby, Chemical Brothers, and many more. With a complete descriptive listing of all 500 patches.

Note: Sysex is a universal patch format that can be accessed through your computer using many fine freeware, shareware and commercial librarians and patch editors for Windows, Mac, Amiga, Atari, DOS, and Linux.

The CZ Series Hints, Tips & Tactics Guide©  (PDF format)
This booklet works as a quick reference reminder of many of the more important aspects (and sometimes little known secrets) of operation, care, and sound creation with the CZ series of synths. Great to keep handy when creating sounds and selecting sounds for original and cover compositions. Also a great item to keep handy on the road and at rehearsals.
Original publication, CZ Starter Kit exclusive.

The CZ Series Patch Creator Form©
This form lets you make quick notations of patch sound parameters as you create, modify or catalog them. Very handy when changes are made in a live or rehearsal situation, especially when you want to keep a copy of a "discovery" en route to a particular sound.
Original publication, CZ Starter Kit exclusive.

The CZ Series Patch Locator Form©
This form allows you to make note of where you have stored individual patches in your internal tone banks and cartridges. An invaluable assistant in live and practice performance situations.
Original publication, CZ Starter Kit exclusive.

CZ MIDI Implementation Charts
