I most likely got that out of pure nostalgia! Who ever owned the hardware back in those days, will appreciate this emulation. I did love my cz 101, but as I moved early to the digital world and away from sequencers and keyboards, I sold that little beauty long ago. Now I get it back, without eating space in my bedroom studio. The UI makes it way easier to work than with the original. I can't compare the sound of it with the hardware version, but as I recall it feels the same. And I have a much better keyboard with more expression capabilities than that little mini key it came with.

As there is a lack of PD synthesis out there, it deserves a prominent place in the synthesis world. Though I can imagine a very different approach to this kind of synthesis. Maybe it encourages a developer to build a PD synthesizer with a more modern approach. Certainly it is easier to progam than FM, but has a similar potential.

Most modern synths have all kinds of effects added, to make it sound bigger when browsing through the presets. VCZ has only a chorus. I think this is an advantage, I prefer to add my own reverb, that helps to get a more consistant sound in the mix...

If you are about to look for a modern synth with all bells and whistles, this might not be for you, but if you want to explore that rare PD synthesis method, you should give it a go...

It's been a while now and there's also has been a few expansions that sound great but you REALLY NEED TO FIX THE browser now. It's a disaster. There are different kinds of sounds all over the place and I can't tag them. PLEASE.
