YAMAHA SY 99 | Enigma "Sadeness" Synthesizer | Factory Songs (Remastered)

video upload by Simon Le Grec

"The SY99 is like having a super-sized sampling workstation with the synthesis and sounds of a DX-7mkII. Basically the same as the SY77 it features a larger 76 note keyboard with upgraded synthesis, sample memory, sequencer and more! For its synthesizer section it employs a 6 operator AFM synth engine similar to, if not better than, the original DX's.

Sampled preset sounds (AWM2) can then be fused with the AFM sounds to create entirely wild new sounds! And these sounds are quite shapeable thanks to the resonant multi stage Time Variant Filters which offer the ability to recreate the warm analog sounds of classic synths, or something entirely new.

- AFM FM frequency modulation+ RCM convolution this special FM functions allows to
use an internal noise generator or a sample element AWM as modulator input for an OP

- A patch is composed by 1 / 2 / 4 elements from different syntheses according to 10
soundpath structures (notes: NOTE: RCM algorithms number 9 and 10 use a PCM voice
or an imported sample as an FM modulator - but not as carrier - to an operator.

- AWM PCM SAMPLES the intenal 8 MB ROM wavetable contains 267 PCM waveforms
coded at maximum 48 kHz at 16 bits based on AWM2 synthesis (YM7119 also digital
- The internal ROM wavetable is organized into 4 main categories:
- Classic digital workstation based on a complex mix of FM + PCM samples playback
Even if time has passed, the Sy99 remains a true digital masterpiece.

There's an enhanced on-board sequencer section for creating your songs right on the SY99. It's got 16 tracks, from which channel 16 belongs to the built-in drum synthesizer. The sequencer can hold up to 27,000 notes, 99 patterns and 10 songs. And since the SY99 features 16 voices of polyphony for the AFM section, and another 16 voices for the sampled sounds, there are 32 voices to go around to build your song.

Not to mention there are 2 digital multi-effects processors which include reverb, delay, chorus, panning and more! Professional features for those of you want to really control and shape your sounds using the unique sounds (and complex synthesis) of a Yamaha FM synth with some special features up its sleeve.
