This is a cool synth. The strings choirs and pads are superb, , nice piano's also. Very usable sounds, well worth the second user going rate.

Buy one!

Still a wonderful workstation worthy of classic status.You can pick these gems up for as little as £275 these days, and that is an absolute bargain.Wonderful pads, strings and piano patches to be had, and very easy to use with a nice feel. I have 2 and will never part with them.

The SY-85 is a real dependable workstation. Expressive, fantastic preset sounds and the fact that completely new sounds can be loaded from floppy disk makes the machine a real chameleon. It can be anything it wants to be. New sound sample disks are available from www.soundsamples.co.uk for all types of music from rock to hip hop ...

I am actually a guitar player but bought a used SY85 for song writing about 10 years ago. Man, what a great investment I made. Great features, great sounds and if you hook it up with a newer sound module, it is a board for all time. I recently had a tune used on the Bernie Mac show and the music was done on the SY85 here in my home and my son used it for his firs LP. Check out Humble Beginnings by G-Quest and LAX on CD Baby.com. We used an MPC 2000 for the drum tracks and the sequencer, although the sequencing in the SY85 is the best very good.

I've had a SY85 since 1992 and still find the sounds great. But with modern technology I would like to somehow hook it up to Cubase SX using wither the MIDI in on the Yamaha SW1000XG soundcard. Anyone know how this can be achieved and adding the device to the cubase device setup/manager? Many thanks
