Mine ended up being sold as scrap to EMIS. The parts for these are like gold dust. So be prepared for trouble if yours breaks down. Yamaha only have single numbers, in quantity, of the custom built parts. So eventually repair will be impossible (unless someone starts making the chips for them). Dearly missed!

Very 70ish sounds, no matter what you do -- but that's the charm of this beast. Drive some bass notes (with low @ highpass filter sweep) through a Sherman filterbank - instant d'n'b vibe ! Real creamy.

Very warm and fat..Presets sound like they are straight out of a James brown record. I spotted one on stage at a Bob Marley concert once. My suspicion is that they aren't so cheap any more...

Like Adam said , this is a cracking synth that can be picked up for very reasonable money (at the moment anyways ) very similar to the bohemoth CS80 - except its a sigle Oscillator version.

8 note poly , with one &quot;memory&quot; , lovely alive sounds , very funky , tons of capability for audio weirdness with a very well spec'd ring modulator.

The overall sound is very like a CS-80 , typical Vangelis twangy lead sounds are a breeze , good chunky basses &amp; nice pads.

Needs about 20 mins or so warm up before its really stable....midi retrofitting is possible tho a pain to do. The ribbon controller is a joy to use.
