1985 E&MM Casio CZ101 Review - Phase Distortion Synthesis Explained


via noyzelab where you'll find the rest including some audio demos.

Page 2 gives a great overview of Phase Distortion Synthesis. You may have heard it to be Casio's implementation of Yamaha's FM synthesis, but you will see it is actually a bit different. Instead of operator algorithms with various configurations of oscillators modifying each other, an initial sinewave is "distorted" by a "phase angle" that results in a new waveform, hence "Phase Distortion Synthesis".

BTW, if you have an iPad, you can explore the full blown CZ engine with some extras here:
