The Z3000 is an innovative, intelligent all-analog Voltage Controlled Oscilaltor with an integrated tuner. The Z3000´s low-power, light bluedisplay shows the current frequency and makes precise tuning possible which is very useful when making linear FM or applications with multiple VCOs. Two different sync methods and a several FM inputs allow for a huge number of possibilities. Especially the combination of FM and sync enables very exciting sounds and the Z3000 VCOs allow for easy analog FM with exact frequency ratios. The new version 2 is now built with SMD components and thus it´s PCB is very flat (pcb parallel to the faceplate). By the use of modern transistors the tracking got much more exact. The sawtooth now sounds a bit better and there´s a nwe feature: vc waveshaping on the sine and triangle wave! It blends from “trashy sawtooth” to sine/triangle. VCO with arithmetic processor that analyzes the frequency once per second. The display shows the current frequency – depending on the chosen mode the VCO frequency is shown as frequency in Hertz, note value or octave range. The external audio input offers the ability to use the arithmetic processor for tuning other VCOs. Of course, the Z3000 has manual and voltage controlled pulse width modulation and the waveforms sine, triangle, pulse and sawtooth. Besides the hard sync input for synching the VCO using square or sawtooth waves there is an additional Hard Sync Modulation input (HSM). This will not only accept any waveform but any audio signal which will modulate and distort the waveforms of the synchronised Z3000. Additionaly there are 3 FM inputs, two exponential and a linear one. The CV-inputs FM2 and Linear FM share a common attenuator. Frequency range of the z3000 is 0.7Hz – 30kHz.
