Ensoniq Fizmo

“Ensoniq Fizmo Transwave Synthesizer Keyboard – Excellent condition – Rare. Condition is Used.

*Edit: The power regulator has been replaced on this unit. Photo attached.

Love this synth. It is weird, rare and hard to explain to people who aren’t versed in different types of synthesis.

I’m the second owner of this unit, it still has the original Guitar center inventory price tag on the bottom, it has been in my non smoking studio since I aquired it in 2005/2006. It doesn’t have the original power supply but an uprated power supply that the original owner picked up to counter an issue some of the models had.
There are a few scuffs and dings on the metal casing. I’ve attached photos. Most of the serious ones are on the underside. There is also a scratch on one of the keys (see photos). Most of the blemishes came from the original owner, my studio was pretty mellow and heavy on rare exotic gear.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“For sale is my Ensoniq Fizmo Rack. It is in very good working and cosmetic condition with only minor scuffs and scratches (see pictures). The voltage regulator has been professionally replaced. I also purchased a new Behringer power adapter for it which is included. The Fizmo rack is incredibly rare and it pains me to sell it. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to buy one. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“I had the regulator fixed at a professional shop. I have the original manual and may still have the original box. It’s in such good shape, the original plastic protective strip is on the display! (And in case you are wondering: I’m selling to finance my recent foray into modular… 🙂 )” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Excellent condition both cosmetic and the full function of all knobs, buttons, audio out/ins with no audio issues. This unit already has the power regulator replacement installed – units that still have the stock regulator are subject to being destroyed by power regulation failure. This unit also has the plastic red lens for the display – often missing. The lens is held by a little glue that can fail over time. The lens is included here, but I prefer to let the new owner decide whether to glue it back in. Unit also comes with a new old stock Radio Shack adapter with matching specs.

The Fizmo is a very unique instrument with very powerful DSP under the hood. Fantastic Ensoniq effects on board (DPPro – DP4). It’s all about the smooth, no loop point issues, of utilizing Transwaves to create complex, evolving soundscapes, with realtime control over filter, modulation, envelope parameters.”

” Bought in 2006. Excellent condition and great sounds. Played it for 2 years before I became aware of the regulator problem. Mine has the original LM2940, which owners are advised to replace. The parts are extremely cheap, its the soldering that I cant do (have palsy in my hands), and was unable to find a tech that looked reliable, so I put the Fizz to rest. Haven’t played her in 10 years, but she’s in a temp and humidity controlled studio. After my initial search for a qualified tech, I haven’t tried again. I have a Waldorf XTk which I love, so I thought I would put the Fizz up for sale, and pare down a little on my synth collection. I’m hoping that there’s someone that knows about this wonderful synth that is also handy with a soldering iron, that will be interested. Comes with manual, but not the wall wort power supply. That was underpowered, and got lost somewhere in the shuffle. They are easy to find and inexpensive. You need a 9V with 1300-1500 mA. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“USED Ensoniq FIZMO realtime transwave synthesizer.

I previously had this listed as not working. I thought this was in need of repair, but all along it was a bad power adaptor. I found a spare adaptor and the synth is indeed working great.

Will ship with original Ensoniq broken power adaptor and replacement Rocktron 9VAC 2A adaptor. Also includes original manual.

Overall good cosmetic condition with some wear from normal use – has some scuffs, marks, and scratches. The little red plastic LED screen cover is missing but the readout can be viewed as it is. I’m sure some red lighting film could be cut to place over the hole.

These are increasingly rare and sought after – some very cool sounds and unique functions.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Hi there

I have for sale an extremely rare Ensoniq Fizmo looking for a new home. Owned from new by my partner (purchased around 97/98) and the synth has had limited use since that time.

The voltage regulator problem which dogged the Fizmo was fixed a few weeks after I purchased it and it’s worked flawlessly ever since.

Comes with Original Box, Manual and PSU. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“For your consideration I have a used Ensoniq FIZMO synthesizer with original manual. It sounds amazing and is 100% functional. This Fizmo comes from a clean smoke free home. Not only does it look cool it has great build quality. The keys have velocity, aftertouch and they still have great action. I will ship the synth in a $400 SKB flight case. The case is really nice, it has wheels, locks and key.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Rare Ensoniq Fizmo synth!

I am the second owner and it sounds unbelievable.

There are a few marks on the synth (see pictures).

If your looking for weird atmospheric sounds, this is the holy grail. Roughly 500 or so units were made when it came out. No one knew what to think of it as it didn’t sound like anything else at the time (and even now) and from what I remember it did not sell well.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Ensoniq Fizmo

fizmo “I have a rare synthesizer for sale. The Ensoniq FIZMO was the last and best synth from Ensoniq. It is a great digital synthesizer with 64 memory positions each with 4 options to mix and blend and position on the 61 note touch and velocity sensitive keyboard. You can have multiple arpeggiators running on the 4 voices in each patch. It is very digital and built by the designers that brought out the Prophet VS back in the day. This is almost 20 years old but it is in pristine condition and even has the original manual. I need to make space for a new keyboard so I have to give one up and this is the one. The sound is very unique, very digital and sometimes astounding. The realtime controls, espescially the “Z” knob really makes it a player’s keyboard. Here is a chance to own a piece of history. Sorry,USA customers only, no international sales.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

fizmo ” Selling my near mint Ensoniq FIzmo. It works perfectly and the voltage regulator mod has been done.
Dont take any chances on buying a Fizmo that hasnt had this performed, ALL FIZMOS WILL FAIL, ITS A FACT!!
Its not a matter of if but when! ESPECIALLY if the add says “light use” little to no use” etc.
If the VR mod has not been performed STAY AWAY!
Also be weary of VR mods that are hack jobs by untrained so called “techs”.
I sent my synth into the ONLY Ensoniq technician in the USA who does these things.
Look it up your self his website is “TheSoniq” .
The synth works perfectly and will last many years to come.
There is no other synth that comes close to this beast.
Kept in my professional smoke free studio always covered or in the case(not included)
Theres a teensy blem under the key bed see pic.
You will receive the fizmo, original box, original manual and a newer PSU I bought from Syntaur.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

fizmo “Up for auction is one Ensoniq Fizmo synthesizer in good condition, very lightly used.
This has been serviced by a tech who did general maintenance, cleaning and replaced the factory power regulator with the correct one, a common mod on these boards.
Only functionality issue is mechanical; the program plus and minus buttons have to be pressed rather firmly for them to respond. A small issue for a tech to clean or replace the contacts. They do function correctly, just need to pressed harder than the rest of the buttons on the board. Otherwise 100%” Click here to visit listing on eBay

fizmo“This was part of an estate sale buy. Vintage Ensoniq Fizmo synth. In the box was the synth, original packing and manual and a MC7805 voltage regulator. Had no idea why this was in there until I did a little research. Opened up the Fizmo and the voltage regulator modification has been done. Looks to be in excellent condition. Other than that I know nothing about this unit or it’s functioning condition. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

fizmo “If you’re reading, you’re probably aware of this synth’s reputation – simply put, it sounds like nothing else out there. Great at experimental sounds, drones and pads, bells, and evolving soundscapes.

This particular unit has the regulator fix, which is crucial and means that it won’t experience a failure. Everything functions perfectly. Please note that there are two cosmetic defects: 1) the volume knob is missing its endcap, 2) the “time” knob in the glide section is slightly bent. These are probably easy fixes, I just haven’t looked into it. Neither of these defects affect the performance of the synth at all – both knobs are perfectly turnable without trouble.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

fizmo rack” Very Rare Ensoniq Fizo Rack! These units are extremely hard to find. This unit belonged to a former employee who bought the unit as the company was closing. It was the first unit made and was the production test unit.

fizmo” Selling my Ensoniq Fizmo Synthesizer. If you’re looking at this, you probably already know how rare and awesome this synthesizer is. I bought it a few months ago and have just been really busy so I haven’t been playing it as much as I should, figured someone else with more time should have it.

Everything works perfect on it and it’s in great shape. the only real cosmetic flaw is the volume knob as you can see in the image. Apparently the previous owner had a cat and it chewed on it (from what he told me). Anyways, it doesn’t affect the knob at all, works just fine. The voltage regulator has been fixed too so no worries there and the power supply is included.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This FIZMO works perfectly and has some of the most interesting sounds I’ve ever heard and a great 80’s retro look. This keyboard is great for dance/electronic/new age/soundtrack work. The synth is midi compatible, with lots of on-board knobs and wheels, so it can double as an incredibly flexible midi controller. The ability to program this thing is astounding. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Ensoniq Fizmo

” The beautiful and enigmatic Ensoniq Fizmo, transwave synthesizer. All metal construction bar two plastic end cheeks. In pristine condition apart from a tiny mark to the metal surface near the modwheel (see photos). Supplied with a new 9v AC 2ma power supply from Line6 (the Px-2).

Will put up some sounds later but this does not sound like PPG, Waldorf Microwave or even Access Virus wavetable. Instead you have 4mb of ‘transwaves’ and you can move through frames of sounds with much more fluidity. Instead of the spiky quality of PPG/waldorf wavetable you get buzzy, evolving sounds as well as the usual bell-like sounds that are typical to wavetable synths. The organs are very good on this as are the sound-beds.

It’s certainly not a ‘1st-synth’ or a ‘go-to’ synth, more like that something that can add something unusual the mix. Its very easy to pull off tangerine dream type sounds, because of the excellent arpeggiator. The effects are also special and courtesy of a separate DSP chip with the effects derived from the DP4/DP-Pro effects units..even now the effects beat anything you get on-board with the Virus or Waldorf synth. The ‘filter’ is digital but very resonant. The keys are ‘Fatar” semi-weighted with after-touch.

All pots/encoders have been cleaned, the unit has been cleaned inside. The keys are white and have not yellowed at all. I am the second owner, it has not been in gigged and has been stored/used in a smoke-free environment.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
