SampleScience has announced the release of CZ-Tronics, a virtual instrument that brings a collection of sounds sampled from the Casio CZ-5000 vintage digital synth.

CZ-Tronics is available as a 64-bit VST plugin for Windows and Kontakt 5 instrument library.

CZ-Tronics is the perfect plugin for 80s music production. It features a collection of 36 multi-sampled phase distortion sounds that fit perfectly well in synthwave and synthpop tracks. Authentic hardware synthesizer from the era has been sampled (a Casio CZ-5000).

  • Multi-LFO.
  • Room reverb.
  • Highpass/Lowpass filter.
  • Amplitude range controls.
  • Preamp/Glide/Legato.
  • 3 voice modes: polyphonic, monophonic, and legato.

The Kontakt 5 version includes Amp and Lowpass Filter ADSR, Chorus/Reverb, and Sync Delay.

CZ-Tronics costs $24 USD.
