Yamaha SY22 Music Synthesizer (1990)

All sounds in this track are SY22 factory presets, including the drums. The SY22 was launched in 1990 and is effectively a hybrid of Yamaha's outgoing FM synthesizer technology with their new AWM sample-based engine, with 2 FM operators and 2 AWM oscillators. A joystick provides vector control to blend between the chosen waveforms in the patch in different ways, either by affecting their volume (Level) or their pitch (Detune).

Patches used:
P25 ICE FIELD
P28 THRILLER
P74 VCO SYNC
P62 SYN BASS
P23 SAD ANGEL
P27 VECTASEQ
P77 GROOVER
P32 PINPIANO
P14 DIST GTR
P81 SUPERPAD
P18 NOSTROMO
P82 PROPHECY
P88 DRUM KIT

Programming new patches via the front panel is a fairly thankless task, but there is a good editor out there: https://ctrlr.org/sy35-voice-editor/

Big thanks to @musicbroth for the loan of this keyboard. They're a fantastic community music resource in Glasgow, UK, loaning instruments and running workshops with a mission to provide access to music for everyone. https://www.musicbroth.org
