It sounds to me that you might want to stay with OS 9. The most powerful machine you can buy that runs it natively is a MDD G4 (wind tunnel). You can run SD 3.052 and Logic Platinum 6.3.1 or Logic Pro 6.4.3 on OS 9. All you would need to find is an XSkey that's authorized for those apps. The softwar...

What do you mean you can't use it? You don't have an XSkey? Where did you get your information? It's simply wrong. :wink:

If you're using OS X you can look into creating an aggregate device.

Actually, if you have 10.3+ you can route MIDI between apps without ReWire. Read up on the IAC driver that can be found in Audio MIDI Setup.

I still use SoundDiver PB2 on an Intel Mac and it works fine in Rosetta. You could build or download environments for a lot of instruments but I still prefer SD for editing, even without any AutoLink (which hasn't worked since OS 9). As for audio interfaces that work well in OS X and with Logic, I h...

10/23/98 #10015. Does this make it the 15th one made? I can't confirm it, but I've heard that Ensoniq started their serial numbers at 10001 for other synths like the ESQ-1 so it could be the case here, too. Based on that assumption and the ranges of serials I've seen so far, there were at least 166...

If we're going to do this it may also be useful to post the mfr date and serial, if only to get an idea of the range of numbers. Again, mine's:

I had heard also only 500 were manufactured but Ive never been able to verify this or if this # includes the rare rack model. Seems kinda low, but they were only made 1 year I have heard this 500 figure myself, but it does seem a bit low. I have also been told that there were only 100 racks built b...

I'd be interesting to know 1) how many Fizzie kb's were produced, and 2) how many have survived, here approaching the 10th anniversary of their introduction. :D I'd be interested to know this as well. Seeing as some of the later ones were produced without the problematic VR, it would probably be sa...

Yes, I just bought Huppo's Fizmo and not only did he do a quality packing job, but he's also very friendly and a pleasure to deal with all around. I would definitely buy from him again! :D

I've been wanting one one of these for quite a while. It's really in great shape. Cheers!

I built one last year and it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. It was my first time taking on such a project, and I really had fun doing it. The FatMan does sound very good but it's fairly limited. However, there are a lot of mods that you can do to give it more flexibility. At the very least...

There are dedicated sections for some of the more famous synths. Check out the table of contents on Amazon.
