Back in the day, I sold all my analogue and early digital gear to buy one of these (if only I'd known then how much they'd be worth today!). One of the really good things about this synth is that it's not GM which means that a lot of the sounds in it are quite different to those in other "sample + synthesis" synths of the time that went down the GM route. It's also got a really intuitive sequencer which, if I remember correctly, can accommodate 8 tracks (including drums) per song and some very good drum sounds - better than many dedicated drum machines. I'm tempted to buy it just for old times' sake.

Have a bump!

One of these is my "token" keyboard - great synth, great sounds and built like a tank.

Bargain at this price!.

    I have a small bedroom type studio where I record myself playing traditional music on flute and I want to try add something new to those recordings with the help of a synth.

Hi, I will buy the Yamaha SY 85 for the £110 asking. Problem is I would need it posted. I will pay for the P&P too,
