CZ Touch is the CZ app we weren’t looking for, but it’s very welcome anyway

Although this isn’t the CZ app we were hoping for it’s still a good app to have around. Here are the details …

CZ Touch is a patch editor for the Casio CZ series of synthesizers. If you have a CZ-101, CZ-1000, or CZ-5000 then this is the editor for you! CZ Touch gives you touch-based control over all of the voice parameters on your CZ synthesizer. Just make a change on the screen, and the change is instantly sent to your synthesizer.

CZ Touch especially shines in giving you direct, easy control over the 8-stage envelopes on your synth. No more menu diving to create a complex envelope.

Here are some more features:

  • Save patches to your iOS device, with names
  • Share/export your patches via email: patches are saved as sysex files that can be transmitted to your synthesizer by a sysex program.
  • Copy/Paste envelopes between DCO, DCW, and DCA
  • Create random patches
  • Copy the current patch from your synth to your iOS device, for further editing

Use this app either with a MIDI adapter for your iOS device, or via a wireless MIDI connection to your Mac or PC, with your CZ synthesizer connected to your Mac or PC via MIDI.


  • A Casio CZ synthesizer (CZ-101, CZ-1000, or CZ-5000)
  • A MIDI adapter for your iOS device, OR a Mac or PC connected to your CZ via MIDI and a wi-fi connection between your Mac or PC and your iOS device.

NOTE: This app does NOT make any sound! It’s just an editor for your Casio CZ synthesizer. If you don’t have a Casio CZ synthesizer, this app won’t do anything useful for you.

This app is not affiliated or endorsed by Casio. It’s just an app I made to fill a need!

CZ Touch costs $14.99 on the app store:
