Advanced Wave Memory
Second-generation Advanced Wave Memory (AWM2) offers unmatched sample playback quality.
Advanced Frequency Modulation
Advanced Frequency Modulation (AFM) provides a dramatic boost in FM sound quality and programming versatility.
Realtime Convolution & Modulation
Realtime Convolution & Modulation (RCM) achieves a new fusion of sample realism and the expressive power of FM.
Extensive Sample Layering
SY77’s versatile 1, 2, or 4-element voice architecture and complex envelope generators provide extensive sample layering capabilities.
Advanced Digital Filters
Advanced digital filters provide dynamic timbre control.
Programmable Envelope Generators
Multiple complex programmable envelope generators are featured.
Dynamic Panning for sonic animation.
Programmable Aftertouch and Assignable Controllers
Key velocity and after-touch pressure can be assigned to control pitch, filtering, AWM2 modulation level and/or a range of AFM parameters. Assigned parameters can be controlled in a positive or negative direction. There’s also an extra assignable center-detented wheel and several assignable controllers in addition to the pitch and modulation wheels.
Internal Digital Signal Processors
Four internal digital signal processors provide essential ambience, two for reverb effects and two for modulation.
Display and Data Entry Controls
Intuitive programming is provided through a user interface consisting of a 240 x 64 dot backlit liquid crystal control panel that makes several parameters visible at the same time. Flow diagrams and bar graphs displayed in graphic form provide instant recognition. A directory helps you locate functions and a unique “jump” number system allows direct switching between related functions. “Smart” function keys makes it easier to move around the programming environment.Polyphony – 32 voices: 16 AFM voices, 16 AWM2 sampler voices
