This was my first synth, and I wouldn't change it for nothing, it has some magical thing that I haven't found in my other Synths (Korg m3r,Korg NX5R, Roland JV-50) with some effect and some EQ you can easilly make it sound like the original recordings It's SO COOL!

I Have The Manual, but I don't Have Scanner.. Sorry

Didn't Rank IT in the las post...

Just picked one up on ebay for $72...a total bargain! I bought it due to its simplicity but surprisingly cool features. I already have a full array of synths, including its big sister, the DX11, and Korg's DS-8; so I wasn't buying it because it would be some sort of super workstation, like my Triton (there's simply no way to make the Triton sound cheezy, so the PSS fits the bill nicely). That's why I can't/won't complain about its less-than-dynamic sound set.

Cosmetically, the PSS-680 is one of the smartest-looking portables ever made, with its sharp ridged- wedge shape. The ability to use a 2-op FM synth to edit and store sounds puts it above most of its stablemates. Running the sounds through my Lexicon MPX-100 & my Boss PS-3 helps to either mask or further the cheezification, expanding the Yamaha's horizons.

Conclusion: lots of fun, decent specs, can't beat the price.

This was my first synth and I still love it. It has to be the simplest FM synth to program. Yeah, most of the presets suck but with some tweaking you can come up with some cool deep basses, analog type sounds (really!) and weird sound efx. And it'll totally come alive with and effects processor. The drum samples are totally pathetic but it's totally fun the play with the pads! The built in effects are nice too...especially the stereo chorus. The only thing is that I can't figure out how to access the multi timbral mode thru midi (please e-mail me if you know). So all in all its a good machine for the price and the time. But you probably won't ever see one for sale.

Yeah it's old the sounds are a little off but for some weird dirty bass sounds that can be layered this thing kicks. The brite sounds are pretty good as well. It was the first synth I brought with a Qx5 sequencer and Akai s16 sampler. I lost the Akai and the qx5 to a pawn shop but I refused to part with my Pss 680. does anyone have a cakewalk .ins file for it? I wore out my pads twice and some keys are broke but I still have it up and running.
