Not sure, I just had the Sounddiver editor specific to the Fizmo. Why not try it and tell us?

yup full sounddiver works fine with the fizmo using it the way i described... i have access to all of the envelope controls and effects parameters... i must say though, im a bit dismayed that one cannot alter the FX mix level for each voice respectively... its pretty much a HAVE EFFECTS or DONT HAVE EFFECTS situation, and you can only have one effect per preset i dont want this same phaser on each of the voices, i expected 1 effect per voice.... rant is over - i love this synth despite my short ownership of it, im sure ill get over its shortcomings, it handles a lot of stuff as it is... i definitely plan to get a second if i can

I would consider the fizmo a self contained sounscape world - just play and explore - so much can change. Its not really particularly good at anything special (though the appegiator is fabulous as already said). Just enjoy to lose yourself in its unique world of sound.
