Dual Synthesis Systems
It incorporates two essentially different synthesis systems: AWM and FM. AWM- "Advanced Wave Memory"- is a sampling technology that allows high-fidelity reproduction of digitally recorded "live" sound. FM is Yamaha's proven Frequency Modulation synthesis technology which is capable of creating extraordinarily warm, vibrant simulations of actual instruments.
Multi-Element Vector Voices
Either a 2-element or 4-element configuration. Each "element" is actually an independent sound or "waveform". A 2-element voice combines one AWM and one FM waveform, while a 4-element voice combines two waveforms of each type. Vector control allows the 2 or 4 different waveforms in a voice to be blended and detuned in a variety of ways- manually or automatically.
Vectors Control Level or Detune
The SY35 vector control can be used to control either level or detune along the vertical axis if a 2-element voice is selected, or along both the vertical and horizontal axes if a 4-element voice is selected.
In-depth or Instant Voice Editing
Program complex amplitude envelopes for each element from scratch, choose from a range of preset generic envelopes that can later be edited for fine control, or simply use the original envelopes that are included with each of the SY35's 384 internal waveforms. A range of other voice editing parameters give you extensive control if you want to get serious about programming.
Real-time manual vector control means unprecedented expressive freedom, while dynamic vectors that play automatically whenever you play a note on the keyboard.
128 Ready-to-play Voices
Although programming your own vector voices isn't difficult, Yamaha has provided a range of 128 superb preset voices that you can play right away with no programming.
Multi-timbre Mode and Built-in Drums
A Multi mode can be used to play several voices simultaneously via the SY35 keyboard, or create a range of exotic split keyboard effects. The Multi mode is also ideal if you want to control the SY35 from an external MIDI sequencer, since 8 different voices can be assigned to 8 different MIDI channels.
Since each element in any voice can be panned to any position in the stereo sound field, you can create true stereo voices that will add a new dimension to your sound.
Built-in Effects Add Essential Ambience
