The FZ1 was released early 1987. I played one when it came out. The keys felt

like normal CASIO keys however the sound was tremendous for &quot;casio&quot;. If you can

find one there worth cecking out. I was going to get one then settled on something

Thanks for a good and useful site. I have some additional information and

some corrections to the information about the Casio FZ-1 (and FZ-10M as well).

FZ-1 and FZ-10M are the same products except the 10M has no keyboard and the

10M has always 2 Mb RAM, FZ-1 has 1 Mb RAM default but is quite often expanded

to 2 Mb. The 2 samplers were released in 1987. The sample rates are 36, 18 and

9 kHz, not 33 and 12 kHz (Nick Dimmock wrote 33 mhz![mega]). Even if the poly-

phony is 8 notes you can lay and split up to 64 samples on 16 MIDI-ch so the no

of multitimbral is 64 if you only use 8 in the same key hit. The new price 1987

in Sweden was SEK 21000, that´s ruffly $2800.

I hope this information is useful for you. If you want some more don´t hesitate

to mail me. I love this sampler and have used it since 1988, when i sold my

Emulator II and Mirage. FZ-1 was the first 16 bit sampler released on earth(!).

Emu-II and Mirage used 8 bit, Emax and S-50 used 12 bit, S-1000 was released

the year after FZ-1, 1988. Best wishes /Anders
