Hello all, <BR> <BR>I plan to buy a Yamaha SY-85 to make my own music but I wonder if some of its sounds are the same than the olders DX series or CZ for Casio. I really want to have cheesy sounds, like old vintage synths as King Jammy used, does anybody who knows the SY-85 could tell me if this one is for me? <BR> <BR>Thanks a lot
If you haven't already, you might get good info by posting on Yamaha forums: <BR><a href="http://www.yamahaforums.co.uk/modules.php?name=Forums" target="_blank">http://www.yamahaforums.co.uk/modules.p ... =Forums</a> <BR> <BR>There's one section there dedicated to the SY series. <BR> <BR>The SY 85 uses Yamaha's AWM system - which basically is like sampled waveforms - so although you would probably be able to get cheese from it, I suspect it is fairly good qaulity. <BR>The person here certainly rates it: <BR><a href="http://www.sonicstate.com/synth/yamaha_sy85.cfm" target="_blank">http://www.sonicstate.com/synth/yamaha_sy85.cfm</a> <BR>and he's given his email address. <BR>And that page links through to 52 reviews of it: <BR><a href="http://www.sonicstate.com/synth_reviews/yamaha_sy85.cfm" target="_blank">http://www.sonicstate.com/synth_reviews ... y85.cfm</a> <BR> <BR>Looks like a nice thing.
