Fat Vintage Sound with Phase Distortion Synthesis

VirtualCZ uses the original synth’s unique Phase Distortion architecture to provide distinctive fat vintage sounds.

Phase Disortion was the technology available in the 1980’s and its faithfully re-created within the plugin. It essentially worked by distorting the phase angle of a sine (or cosine) wave to make other waveforms creating the ‘fat” sound.

Along with sounding analogue, Phase Distortion means the synth is  capable of generating rich ensembles and pads as well as percussive and metallic sounds.

  • if you are aiming for long evolving sounds or short strictly digital plucks or tight 80s basses, or anything beyond substractive synthesis conception, this is probably for you. You’ve heard this synth in so many records so many times, that, the first time you play it you’ll know it’s lots of fun and can produce unique sounds, some of which are instant Detroit House!

  • "VirtualCZ has that special something you just have to experience for yourself. It’s not the most powerful thing on the planet, but it was never intended to be. Sure, owners of the original CZ line will no doubt be thrilled, but I’m more than certain that VirtualCZ will inevitably stir up a renewed interest in phase distortion synthesis, which is long overdue."
