YAMAHA SY 77 | Vangelis Synthesizer | Factory Songs (Remastered)

"With the SY77 Music Synthesizer, Yamaha has set a new direction for synthesizer development through the 1990's. A full-function profes- sional performance and composition synthesizer, it incorporates the first truly different tone generation technology to come out in years: RC&M (Real-time Convolution & Modulation) Synthesis.

While many manufacturers offer 'sample plus synthesis' tone generation, Yamaha improves upon this concept in the SY77 by offering advanced ver- sions of both its AWM sampling and FM synthesis technologies. The breakthrough in SY77 is that Realtime Convolution and Modulation allows the two kinds of sounds to interact.

The convolution filtering section emulates analog operation, consisting of two 12dB/octave filters, one low pass and one switchable low pass/high pass filter. Filtering is included in the AFM and AWM2 ele- ments in a voice, and each filter can be controlled by independent dedi- cated envelope generators. The filters provide 12dB/octave band pass filtering or, used in tandem, a steep 24dB/octave low pass filter. The filters also feature fully adjustable resonance, which, as in older ana- log synthesizers, can be raised into filter oscillation. As many as eight filters can be used in 'single' voice mode.
