I just got one of these. Only played with it for a few hours, but I already know this is going to be a synth that will last a LONG time in the setup. Great master keyboard, amazing sounds and sample ram.

Check out Yamaha's site for some good downloads!

My SY85 is the only keyboard I've ever had (though I just bought a QY70 sequencer last week). After all these years, the sounds are still terrific, the effects are superlative, and once you know your way around the interface making actual music is easy.

The only qualms I have are the difficulties transferring files between my computer and the ancient disk drive/operating system, and the noise the keys make when you play fast.

Excellent synth... I think it can outperform not just newer yamaha synths, but some rolands (jv80, jv90, jv1080) and korgs too (x3, x5d)... If it were 64-voice polyphonic...!!!! If you expand the sample memory and start to getting 2 mb multisamples into it you will know the value of this keyboard.

I've got to laugh at myself....I've had my '85 for years.......and I still cannae use it right.I've got a million Q's if anyone's got the patients.For ex....How do you change from one drum kit to another when recording patterns? Any help on best sequencer to get would also be met with tears of joy and laughter 'cos maybe there is still a chance for me yet......... Cheerz.

THE SY HAS SERVED US WELL.ONCE YOU GET INTO MASHING THE FACTORY PRESETS YOU CAN CREATE SOME AWESOMELY DARK SOUNDS. WE'RE INTO DARK JUNGLE AND HARD HOUSE AND THIS IS DEFINITELY A DANCE KEYBOARD. SO MANY UK UNDERGROUND ARTISTS USE THE SY SOUNDS IT SEEMS THAT ALL YOU NEED IS AN SY,S3000 AND A NORDLEAD TO ROLL
