Could be on more than one models of the yamaha keyboard but I have a Yamaha PSS 790 with exact that sound in it.

On the left of the second picture you see a little part with a " toggle switch " called Vector synth. Press the pink button and youre there.
When I first got it in the early 90's I immediatly recognize the sound from the Shabba/Pinchers/Courtney Melody chunes.

Still it can be found very, very cheap on the internet these days.

My daughter is playing around with it now a days and you shouldnt expect to much of this model soundwise other than that hit.
The piano's, organs and the rest sounds cheap but hey, didnt the keyboard sounds used in the early dancehall chunes also??? :D

The original orchestra hit was from a Fairlight CMI and everyone sampled that afterwards. The sample was taken from a recording of Stravinskys Infernal Dance. The sample you're looking for is ORCH5.
