Overview


The Yamaha SY77 Sound Making Book: Level 1 introduces you to the SY77 and presents many of its prominent features in tutorial fashion, so you can learn while doing. It doesn't cover every element of the SY77, but it does give you a general working knowledge so you can begin using it quickly.

This book covers:
  • general set-up for playing the machine as a stand alone synthesizer;
  • basic sound editing, including how to make split/layer combinations, how to set the pitch bend and modulation wheel controllers and how to adjust the attack time, brightness and loudness elements;
  • working with the unique Dynamic Pan feature;
  • how to use the Modulation and Reverb effects;
  • using Microtuning to create new and interesting musical scales;
  • how to use the SY77 as a 16 channel multitimbral sound device;
  • introduction to the Sequencer.

  • After reading this book you'll be able to get around on the SY77 skillfully and fluently. Much of what you learn will come from the many experiments included throughout the material. So, keep your SY77 turned on as you read through the chapters and perform the exercises as they are presented. This practice will not only make the subject at hand clearer, it will also make you very comfortable with the workings of your new SY77.
