This synth is The psychedelic instrument, exactly what i need to make music like fusion of authentic and modern Trance.

I bougth it for 500$ 2 weeks ago.This is my very first electronic instrument and i think it was a good deal to begin with this one. It's a logical sound-manipulator and has tons of possibility . "Only" 64 preset means 64*4=256 sounds, each sound has 57 different waveform, totally 64*57=3648 basic sound possipility...of course not every waveform sounds good, but i find every time a new mindblowing combination of a sound and an arp-pattern. Its sound is phat, sometimes a bit MS20-like evolving gurgly-bubbly, other time Nodens Ictus like digital bird twitter....

To answer the people who don't understand this synth (that's not a problem, they have to buy an other keyboard) here is a citation from a goatrance classical:

"I believe with the advent of acid, we discovered new ways to think and it has to do with piecing together new thoughts of mind. Why is it that people are so afraid of it ? What is it about it that scares people so deeply ? Because they are afraid that there is more to reality than they have ever confronted. That there are doors that they are afraid to go in and they don't want us to go in there either because if we go in, there we might learn something that they don't know. And that makes us a little out of their control"

I use the Fizmo for alternative rock (cfr. Grandaddy) and I must say that most people are impresses by the sound. It gives my band (www.giantsoftheair.be) an original touch and atmosphere.

I've had the fizmo all of about 2 days, and I have to say, I'm impressed. The board has its draw backs, as does every synth, but the ability of a patch to move and change so dramatically and smoothly is amazing, the efx are good clean sounding, sound quality is great. If you can't get something usable out of it, atliest a pad or round bass sound, then you're not trying, or haven't even peeked at the manual. I'll admit, its a little different, its an ensoniq board, what do you want, but I love the vibrant sound. I'll review it again, after I've had more time to explore, but so far, so good!

I've owned my fizmo for well over a year now, and even now i am still finding little quirks which i like. I make trance music mainly, and for this type of music, this synth kicks serious ass! Apart from a small akai SG01v module, my fizmo is my only source of sythesised sound, yet i can still produce full and complete pieces of professional sounding music. admittedly, if you want 'real instrument' sounds, go elsewhere, but if you value usable, yet different sounds, then the fizmo is for you. Also, the SFX is mindblowing

Col Dee a professional user from London writes:
Okay, basically the Fizmo is the best synth I know - for the kind of sounds I like to hear.

There is a synth shop in London called TurnKey. I went in there two weeks after getting the Fizmo, had a play around on some of the synths, and thought "these machines are boring".

If youy want unusual, complicated or multi-textured sounds, do your best to acquire a Fizmo.
