Great keyboard - try to get it off me and leave with broken arms! Bought new when it first came out, and haven't been without it since.

As for the sound editors I wrote to stop people asking, there are two, one for PC/Windows and one for Atari ST available as follows:

The PC version will eventually be updated without the memory leak.

I love this synth. For noise, ambience, and just plain weird suff, this is the

synth for you. With an external editor you can do quite a bit more with the FM

section. As a multitimbral synth it sucks, however it's a great

solo synth for live stuff. Combined with a filter module, this could be

some crazy stuff =)

I recently downloaded SY-Edit, a PC based sound editor from Richard Hanson. Without this software the SY22 ist just another boring FM preset synth (my personal opinion). Only the software makes it a great FM synth. It lets you control all FM parameters and you get really weird sounds out of it. It was so fascinating I "forgot" to switch on my Roland JV-2080.

I have been using my Sy-22 for almost 7 years now, and I finnally came up with some nice fat hammond organ sounds, I have a Korg G-4 (leslie simulator) on order and can't wait to hear the two units together. The trick to getting good Hammond sounds , is to keep them pure and simple.I would like to see Yamaha come out with a drawbar synth, rather than a vector synth. Just picture it, 9 drawbars where one could assign any sound element to each drawbar!!!

I purchased my keyboard used about six months ago. I am having a great time learning how to use it. The manuals were a bit confusing at first, but I am getting the feel for it now. The sounds are wonderful; however, it is missing the one sound I really nee; the Hammond organ with Leslie speakers. I wonder if there is a way to program the sound into the keyboard (or at least something close to it.) I am a novive at this programming stuff, but I am a fast learner. Any suggestions would by greatly appreciated.
