The SY55 has proved a brilliant work station though not great to play (feel/touch etc). Some sounds great others not so great but I have loved using it for the last 10 years or so and got some great results. I have bought some new sounds for it which have arrived on a CD-Rom. Does anyone know how to transfer data from the CD to the RAM card?

Let's just say that I'm not really impressed by this date. I really thought it was a much better machine than it is. I was not thrilled at all. Real "flat & cheesy" sounds. Very limited on patches. I think that it could have done better. But on the bright side, it's very durable and transposes are rather simple to get to. Please send me more information. Thanks.

Hi, my name is Rodrigo. I´m from Argentina and I need information about how can I buy a YAMAHA SY 55 from there. I can´t find a similar instrument in my country, so I need to buy it in another place. Please can you give me that information? I need the price too. Send me on my mail. Thanks a lot.

I tried for over 2 months to find one on ebay and when I finally got on, I was not thrilled at all. Real "flat & cheesy" sounds. Very limited on patches. Maybe if I take the next month off from work and try to reprogram this thing, I might be able to come up with a decent sound or two. I think Yamaha could have done better. But on the bright side, it's very durable and transposes are rather simple to get to. Not all is lost, but for the moment, I'll take my Casio CTK 711EX over it.

This is my first synth since 1992. I got it for free as a 2nd winner prize of Indonesian National Yamaha Music Contest. I used to play and program Roland D-50 and Korg 01 W/FD before (it's my friend's, not mine)..So, in my opinion, the sequencer is the most important thing that a synth should have. I found its built-in Sy 55 sequencer as 'fun to program', a little counfusing at the beginning, but after a short learning period, it's just a piece of cake ! onfortunately there are 2 things disappointed me, first is the limitation of notes. For fully programmed 8 track song, I can only record 2 songs ! So, the second one, it doesn't have a floppy drive so I can store my songs. It can be solved through Yamaha memory card, but it's hard to find in the market. By the way, its sounds are moderate, which my favourites are : Strings, Stab Brass, pad sounds, Slap Bass and Big Band Brass. I still use it till now (12 years...wow!!) to play both with my band or home programming. Both its hardware and software are ROCK ! they've never broke down....SY 55 is a long serving friend! you bet it is....
