Just Yamaha SY-1 Analog Synth Playing (No Talking)

Synth & Sundry

"The Yamaha SY-1 from 1974 was Yamaha's first synthesizer. It's single VCO design offered both the convenience of some presets and perfunctory analog sybtractive synthesis controls. The user interface takes queues from the organ designs of the time, which makes sense, since the SY-1 was conceived as an accessory for those.

What is pretty incredible about this vintage synth is that in spite of its simple design, the Yamaha SY-1 has aftertouch which it makes it an extremely expressive analog keyboard.

NOTE: This video has two synth takes overdubbed.
