Organic and intricate soundscapes bursting with inspiration.


With its 45 presets that blend three layers of multi-sampled sounds, primarily sourced from the Ensoniq Fizmo, Elysea offers a rich array of sonic possibilities. The interface, with its three drop-down menus displaying the names of the combined textures, provides a user-friendly way to navigate and select sounds. At the end of the list of presets,  you will find an “init” preset to create your own sound combinations with three sound layers, and also another “init” preset with a single sound layer but which contains all the 36 multi-waveforms found in the whole sound library.

Elysea enables the creation of organic and intricate sounds. Its capability to produce deep, evolving textures makes it invaluable across various genres of electronic music. For instance, in ambient music, it creates lush soundscapes, while in cinematic and soundtrack production, it contributes to crafting immersive atmospheres. Additionally, its potential in game sound design allows for the creation of diverse and evocative audio landscapes. In film scores, it adds layers of depth and emotion to complement visual storytelling.




Overall, the versatility of Elysea make it a valuable instrument for musicians, producers, and sound designers seeking to create intricate, atmospheric, and immersive sounds across a wide spectrum of genres and media applications.

  • Elysea is a sound bank based mainly on the Ensoniq Fizmo and its Transwave technology.
  • A preset includes 3 oscillators, and therefore 3 sound layers of multi-sampled sounds.
  • The interface offers 3 drop-down menus containing 12 possible choices per oscillator.
  • Oscillators 1-2-3 have their own settings for Pan, Volume, and transpose (-3 and +3 octaves).
  • The global settings contain an amplitude envelope (ADSR) and a Filter with cutoff and resonance, a Reverb, and a Delay which can be cut with an On/Off button.
  • Each oscillator can be muted by selecting WAVE SELECTION from the drop-down menus which is the first choice by default.
  • The Filter Cutoff is assigned to the Mod Wheel by choice but each parameter can be assigned via MIDI CCs with MIDI learn/unlearn. A free trial version Elysea (Free Edition) is available.

    With 36 source sounds across 3 customizable banks, each with detuning and panning, Elysea surprised me by coming across more retro sci-fi than what I would think of as traditionally organic. Picture listening to the score of 1980’s Flash Gordon (the Howard Blake influenced parts) on a VHS tape that’s been left in the sun for a bit. Hints of Brian Eno’s Apollo.
