I used to own this large, but great sounding synth. I sold it and I deeply regret it. Please don't make the same mistake I did!!! It was warm and fat unlike any sample playback stuff I own. I should've held onto it...

The sy-99 has a feature most keyboards don't have are I haven't found it.The pitch bend feature is great.You can bend notes poly mode,play chord and bend only the upper note or lower note.This is a great feature if you playing guitar licks.I own several keyboards,haven't found this feature on any new gear.

picked up my SY77 used over 10 years ago and it has been the mainstay in my rig ever since. I love the fat sounds it produces and it covers all those interesting 80's patches without even breathing hard! Durable as all get out, I gig out almost every weekend and it has never failed me or left me hanging. I currently replacing my older (yes even older than the sy) synth, but the SY77 will continue to be the center of my sound. If you don't have one.... get one!

The sy99 is an amazing machine if used properly. Possibly holding some of the best sounds in its depths unlike the others of a similar range. Fast coming a collectors item now and prices seem to be going up rather than down. The drum voices are somewhat standard but with some creativeness using only onboard variables a truly incredible sound can be acheived. This spans the whole synthesis of the keyboard. Most of the presets are good but not inspiring. However if you put in the time the rewards are incredible giving chest walloping bases to agressive cutiing leads. Soft, mellow strings and sweet sweet acoustics on guitar voices. I recommend you get one if you can find one and explore this amazing machine.
