The Fizmo was my first synth. I picked it up about a year and a half ago brand new for $300. I am by no means a skilled programmer but what i do know is I love this thing. I would appreciate any help on making this work better for me. I do industrial stuff with it and so far I am happy but I know I could be happier with it. And also if anyone knows where I can get the rackmount it would be much appreciated.

I give it 5 for the sounds and only 1 for hardware.

JoeKa's problem was using the original power supply in the first place, which weakened it's circuitry, Preparing it for an early death. You really have to trust who you buy these from! 500 bucks isn't worth a years use of fizmo...if you think of all the frustration and withdrawls. Otherwise, besides all the risk involved with buying one, mine has seen 2 years of usage and works great. It has its edit quirks, but is quite easy to figure out with a basic knowledge of its synthesis. Most demonstrations you...well "I've" hear online aren't very intresting to ME. I personally believe it's most valued by ambient and experimental electronic artists, and probably wouldn't go over real well with 4-on-the-floor house, but who am i to judge it's character? Here's a taste of some of its splender: http://stations.mp3s.com/stations/86/fizmo_users_group.html viva-la-our-fizmos

Hello...

i owned one of these a while back, so I thought I'd share my views as a former owner.

This is a funky synth that will surprise most with its weird swirling surreal-organic sounds. I can't imagine an ambient programmer being without this machine.

My problem was, at the time I only owned a bass station and a Yamaha FS1R. I found the FS1R able to do 90% of the "Type" of sounds the Fizmo did, and a whole lot more. So, I opted to round out my noize maker arsenal with a An1X for the analog sound.

People dis the Fizmo because it uses a sound chip thatis found in electronic clocks and such but keep this in mind:

There is a machine which uses the sound chip from the old Commodore 64 called an elektron Sid Station. This is the synth used in that 'zOmbie Nation' track.. think what you will of that track, but I heard him do it Live PA and I have NEVER, EVER heard a more powerful sound in my life. Straight up. The point? Greatness can come from an unlikely source.
