Plugin Boutique is offering a 50% discount on its VirtualCZ and Expansion Packs for the Casio CZ series inspired synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.
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.
