SynthsEnsoniq ⇝ Ensoniq Fizmo

The Fizmo is Esoniq's last transwave synthesizer. It featured a built-in vocoder with mic/line input. It was also available in rackmount form.

The Ensoniq Fizmo had fairly low build quality and suffers from voltage regulator issues and commonly needs power supply repairs.

It could be considered the follow-up to the Ensoniq MR series.
