Very powerful synth if a little difficult to get the best out of. Your specs

say it's analogue, it's not (also it was released in 1988 not 1991). What it has got which isn't mentioned in the spec,

are two very powerful digital resonant filters per voice element. When used

right these can make for very analogue sounding patches. Other notable features

not found on many other synths: polyphonic and fingered portmento (good for squelchy 303 sounds), mono mode (envelopes are not

retriggered when played leggato, also good for squelchy sounds), up to eight envelopes per voice element (six

FM, two VCF, one pitch, one pan), flexible voice archetecture (the output of one

element can be routed into another). Minus points - mainly inconsistency - for instance the above mentioned eight

envelopes each type of envelope has a subtly different user interface. There are

pointless differences between the way the AFM and AWM elements are programmed.

The parameters are not measured in sensible units. The LFOs always reset on

key down. Summary: the combination of FM wave creation and flexible filtering makes for

some very powerful and expressive analogue type sounds. The many (loopable)

envelopes make for pad sounds that go on forever without repeating. I've been

programming one for six years and I still don't feel I've fully explored all the

Shhhh....don't tell anyone...this is a very underrated synth. They can currently be picked up used for bargain bin prices. You may be led to believe from the presets that this synth was designed to emulate guitars, oboes and trumpets, but once you hit that edit button and start mangling, a whole new world opens up. With a bit of work and reading of the manual, you'll be creating unique, in your face, digital freak-out sounds. This machine can deliver!! Imagine 6-op fm with resonant filters... It doesnt have a lot of knobs and it's analog emulations are not quite perfect, but if you're willing to dive into the deep world of awm/afm synthesis, this synth can be your best friend.

The best Yamaha Synthesizer of the last 15 years. The extreme power of the FM section is the heart this synthesizer.The Wavetable is the same of TG55.The filters are flexibles but they are typical digital filters.The AFM operators have individual EG and for everyone 16 waveform.The user can mix the waveforms of the wavetable section with FM operators.A very powerful section is the individual panpot for every element.Tg77 have many pan movements and some customizable by users. Effects are the same of the TG55(spx90).In the synth there are the famous microtunig customizable tables of DX7.With Wavestation A/D,Roland D50 and Marion MSR 2 ,TG 77 is the best digital synth of the 80s.

The TG 77 is awsome in the respect of being a versatile Analog/Digital synth. I've had one for about 5 years and do not intend to part company. Has some good patches as well as the creating from scratch is the fun part. A yamaha rep at a recent AES show told me not to get rid of it, it's an excellent tool. I also got the A3000 but myself going back to the TG. Chow.

TG77 is a fantastic module for the technical user. It has the ability to sound analog, digital or a combination of both. The onboard effects leave alot to be desired, but programmers will still find ways of using it to it's fullest extent.
