CASIO COSMO SYNTHESIZER


Published on Dec 23, 2015 WheelRock

Some interesting Casio rack synths in this one. Googlish description below.

"東京都世田谷区成城にある樫尾俊雄発明記念館において2015年12月7日から26日­までの期間限定で、カシオ電子楽器の名機の数々が特別展示されました。なんとその中に­、冨田勲氏が監修し後のCZシリーズの元となった「コスモシンセサイザー」が展示され­ており、樫尾俊雄発明記念館の御厚意で特別に撮影させて頂く事が出来ました。

今回展示されていたのは本体ユニットのみでしたが、この他にキーボードユニット、デジ­タイザーが有り16bitパソコンを接続しサンプリングした波形を音源化、加工する事­が出来ました。

ラック内には、発表されたものの発売には至らず、後に発売された16bitサンプラー­「FZ-1」の原型となった幻のサンプラー「ZZ-1」も収められていました。

残念ながら、電源は入らず音を聞いたり操作することは出来ませんでした。しかし今まで­まともに見た事が無く現存していないと思われたコスモシンセサイザーに直接触れる事が­出来ました。

大変貴重な機会を下さった樫尾俊雄発明記念館に改めて感謝いたします。
