The Casio CZ-1000 was the second programmable Casio synthesizer after the CZ-101, and is the full key size version of that synthesizer. All other characteristics are similar.

It uses the phase distortion synthesis related to all other Casio CZ synthesizer models. It was also one of the first low cost multi-timbral synthesizers with normal-sized keyboard.
