Yamaha SY22 (1990)
All sounds in this track are SY22 factory presets, including the drums. The SY22 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.
Yamaha SY35 (1992)
Yamaha SY22 and SY35
All synth sounds in this track are SY22 and SY35 factory presets, while the drums are Roland TR-909 and TR-727 samples.
Programming new patches via the front panel is a fairly thankless task, but there is a good editor out there for Ctrlr.
STRAIGHT TO TAPE
Recorded straight to four-track tape on a Tascam Porta05 Ministudio.
Big thanks to Music Broth for the loan of the SY22. 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. For anyone who wants to try out either of these keyboards, they now have my old SY35 as well.
