Ensoniq Fizmo 48-Voice Transwave Synthesizer

via this auction

"The Fizmo is a 48-voice synth that comes loaded with great presets running the gamut from deep slowly evolving washes to lead voices to drums and bass and some sounds that are basically “none of the above” all of which can be tweaked and saved. It also has an arpeggiator with 118 preset patterns which you can edit to make your own.

The real power of the Fizmo is that it is designed to be played live. The 5 F-I-Z-M-O knobs just above the keys give you real time control over 5 parameters of whatever patch is active. That’s a lot of performance control without having to do any menu diving. But it is also a great studio tool for creating deep, involving patches.

If you are familiar with the Fizmo’s history, you know that some units had an issue with the factory supplied wall wart and the internal power regulator. This unit had the regulator replaced soon after being purchased (new). It has worked flawlessly ever since."
