Hello all,

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?

Thanks a lot

If you haven't already, you might get good info by posting on Yamaha forums:
http://www.yamahaforums.co.uk/modules.php?name=Forums

There's one section there dedicated to the SY series.

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.
The person here certainly rates it:
http://www.sonicstate.com/synth/yamaha_sy85.cfm
and he's given his email address.
And that page links through to 52 reviews of it:

Looks like a nice thing.
