My sy22 arrived yesterday - delivered to my door for $233 NZ! - yeah and immediate synth bonding. Had to pull my fingers off it to come to work this morning.
The keyboard feels lovely to play and moving the joystick in and out of the four sounds is great. And soundwise - just seems normal synth patches - waiting to be tweaked. The rock organ is good, but who the f#@k wants "synth tormbone?
My favourite was the 4VCO preset, but I wiped it out pressing knobs before i digested the manual. Anyone else done this? I damaged another wonderful preset ('bluemoon' on an EMU mps) this way. Why is it always that there's just one killer preset and that's the one you learn "don't press that dial!" with?
Anyways - its a great synth. And I think I'm going with the neglected work of a synth genius tag.
