Synthesizer 16-voice polyphony. 6 FM operators sinusoidal and a feedback loop. 16 bit processing.
Envelope generator and velocity response different for each oscillator, one LFO per channel.
No effect. Stereo output.
The basic features are ok but could have been expected from Yamaha they include chorus and reverb. Also, have proposed other oscillators waveforms would have improved the potential of the instrument.

UTILIZATION

The keyboard is very nice. The instrument is made of metal, very solid but not overly heavy.
2x40 backlit screen is a big improvement over the original DX-7, and the buttons are of good quality.
Editing is "easy" so far as can be an FM synth ...
There are 32 buttons so it is easy to change the in-game!
I much prefer the pitch bend lever Roland / Korg to Yamaha wheels / Kurzweil but it is a matter of taste I guess.

SOUNDS

I had this synth for 4 years I used it every day. It always sounds FM but with a little programming (it takes a lot of experience) one draws things sublime sounds very much alive. There really are endless possibilities with this synth. It's true that can be sublime Rhodes, Clavinet, but it can do so much more!
Still sorely lacks impact. Chorus and reverb make it the most good.
Today for € 400 or less, only the SY-77 which is greater as FM synth.
I sold mine and I miss the ROMpleurs really picks up the next.
