Very nice indeed Monte! Would love to have one myself IF I had spare cash and one came up at a good price but then again I have no room for it :(

Sounds fantastic! :)

+1 here!

Apologies for raising this thread from the dead, but I finally picked up a Z1 at the weekend, after lusting over it a Korg's launch event all those years ago. As I wasn't able to afford one back then, I finally tried out a Prophecy at that same event and fell in love with it. Luckily, Korg were discounting these heavily at the time, in favour of the newer, bigger family member, so I picked one up for £599 new. But the lust for a Z1 continued and last weekend, I picked up a very tidy example, along with another late 90s synth that I had always wanted, the CS6x.

So, if any other Z1 owners are out there and want to share tips, sounds and tricks, do let me know! :)

I've been liking what I've heard of those Z1s, I will have to listen to them more.

Whenever I hear modeling and synthesis I have to go take a listen. Especially older stuff.

You must be having a great time with all the sounds to try out!

It's been a ton of fun! I have to say that it is pleasantly satisfying to have the power of the Prophecy and be able to play chords, and then some! :)
