I found TG-33 demos on synthmania.com..............I know that usually the presets on a synth don't show off it's full capabilities, and mostly suck. A good bit of the presets sound OKAY at best out of the box for the TG-33 (As far as the vector pads, and analog synth type stuff go). I guess because the fact that being as it's vector synthesis, it's easier to show off it's capabilities using the presets alone IMO.
I can't say the same for the SY-77/TG-77 as the majority of the presets just suck and do the synth no justice AT ALL.
Upon hearing what other's have programmed with the 77, jeeez it's like heaven. Last week I bought the TG-77 on an impulse because of that. I'm kinda having second thoughts about my purchase though, because although I love those crazy analog-ish sounds it's capable of, the type of music that I do doesn't really call for a whole lot of that stuff; mainly acoustic instruments, lush evolving pads/choirs, and a few fat analog-style synth sounds here and there (As shown in the demo I posted a few posts back).

The SY77 rewards patience. I've had mine for 18 years and I'm still finding things it can do.

I do want to get a D-550 badly one of these days, but if I get one it would be just for collection's sake because I dunno if I would really need it or not, ya know. It's mostly used for warm space pads and VA stuff these days, but my TG-77 can cover those grounds too, and then some.
When I got the TG77, it was actually a few minutes right after I started this topic. I read up on it, started talkin about it, lusted after it, and just had to get it. lol. It all happened on a whim. The versatility (FM, space pads, acoustic, and VA-type s**t) over the D-550 is what got me. So when I was on ebay, I said "Well, let me get this one instead, it's more of what I NEED".
But no matter how satisfied I am with it's versatility, I still find myself lusting after the magical Roland machine though. I guess the so-called "Living", "Breathing", "Magical", "Gotta play one and hear it to believe it" charm that it is said to have is what draws me to it. lol.
