Another slab of Ensoniq Fizmo. It is a fantastic synth, but as some have suggested, it is not easy to mix into a track with other synths. So this is an 4 x stereo track improvisation, two of them with Fizmo's arpeggiator and two with overdubs. It is very capable to simulate analog leads, a beautiful aftertouch and filters. It is one of a kind... An other piece of gear used here is the taj mahal reverb from an old Alesis Quadraverb. Fizmo´s own reverbs tend to be a bit too industrial and corridor-like for my usual taste smile

Very ESP. Nice to hear that "older" equipment is still being gainfully employed.

Some really nice synth tones in here.  It was a nice track to zone out to.

Boy that's quite the adventure.

Thanks, Fizmo is one of those weird ones, it hasn´t been used to its full potential really, although it´s twenty years old design.

Thanks, Fizmo always is... it is a bit hard to tame, but very rewarding.

Not at all familiar with the Ensoniq Fizmo.  Got to look that up.  Percussion has a great old organ rhythm composer feel. Sounds especially nice when it sinks down further into the reverb. Holy smokes, I remember the Quadraverb.  I've been thinking about searching for an old micro or nano verb lately. Excellent synth lead and melody lines!
