All analog voltage controlled oscillator
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.
The version 2 is now built with SMD components and thus its 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 new feature: VC waveshaping on the sine and triangle wave! It blends from "trashy sawtooth" to sine/triangle.
