here's how don salaris compared the tg33 to the sy35 on sealed's old site:http://web.archive.org/web/201005051555 ... _tg33.html
yes, sealed's site lives on! well, most of the text and pix, but only a handful of his highly useful and supremely well-done mp3's.
you have to go to web.archive.org (the "wayback machine") and enter his old address:http://homepage.mac.com/synth_seal/html
then you have to hunt around for a complete-ish version of his site.sadly, only a few mp3s were saved, however. saw on some other board that don said he recently emailed sealed to find out the status of the site but never got a reply. hope all is well. his site helped me make numerous purchases and prodded me to get more out of the gear that i have. eternally grateful to him.
whenever i use the wayback machine, i drop a couple of bucks into the till via paypal. it's got to cost two arms and a leg foe them to crawl the web and archive as much of it as tey do, while making it available to the internet for free.
fwiw, i had and loved the sy35, mainly because there was a great site by a passionate spaniard in the late '90s who found and detailed all the hidden parameters of the sy35 and built a pc editor to access them. sadly, that site (http://zipi.fi.upm.es/%7ec950268/
) also no longer exists. it taught me how to chsnge the waveforms of the fm operators and many other tricks that brought that board to a new level. many of those hidden parameters were available in the tg33, but the sy35 had more. i've always thought i was going to buy the sy35 again someday. hmmmm.
