I bought the SY85 in Holland a couple of years ago for about £650 to use as background for my guitar-based recordings. This thing sounds great.... big reverb etc....I could only compare it to other synths in the shop but it was way ahead of those 3 times the price. I don't have enough time to use it regularly and the manuals are just "OK", so I'm not getting the best out of it...is there an SY85 chat page/club or whatever out there ?? Let me know......

Absolutely superb machine. I have bought many sound modules and keyboards, but my SY85 is at the centre of them all. I love it and will never sell it. From Vikesh Mehta (Producer for Elton John's Bassist)

I thought most of the predefined sounds were pretty crappy and electronic-sounding.

But with a bit of work I managed to create a couple of semi-decent hammond organ sounds,

which is quite a feat for a digital synth. It's the effects that really make it. Up to

four channels of FX, and some of deepest, vastest reverbs I've ever heard.

Once I'd upgraded the sample memory to 2.5 MB, this thing really came into its own.

It took a while for me to sort out how to actually get it to play samples back (the manual is next to useless)

but once you get the hang of it it's very flexible and can be made to do almost anything.

I was one of THOSE people who bought the '85 when it first

came out- paid full list price for it. It is the first multi

timberal i own. Like everyone else here, i think it sounds

great. The interface though is somewhat confusing at times, takes

some getting used to.

There are some quirky things about this synth- some of which can

be used to advantage.

WELL worth the average $500-$600 used price.
