Another was the original z3ta+.
Still gets some use around here. Still running OK :wink:

Is it what? 20 years old? If not, it must be close
Must be something like that, I am sure I have the original box it came in around here somewhere.

Me too. I have them both installed, z3ta+ and Z3TA 2, somehow prefer z3ta+ though, for a perceived tiny bit more raw sound. :)

There are some things Z3TA 2 does a lot better, of course. Better GUI, the ability to modulate the waveshapers, no additional opening windows etc.
Plugins and a DAW. On an operating system. Which runs on a computer.

I miss this synth! It had some of the best waveform processing tools of any synth.
Would love to have the original version on Mac.

It's great and the OSC had some nice tracks showing what it's capable of:

Obligatory VAZ Modular mention, still my favorite modular instrument/environment.
