Yamaha SY-2 Mono Synth new
      #897538 - 27/02/11 12:47 PM
I have just recovered my long lost Yahama SY-2 synth from the loft of my parents home, where it must have spent the last 25 years.

Amazingly after many years of disuse it seems to be fully functional, the only glitch seems to be a tuning problem, the interval between notes is not correct. As its an old analogue mono synth with a VCO I assume there will be an adjustment somewhere for this. Anyone have any ideas?

I have found Yamaha's build quality, over the years, to be very high. If only they didn't let their engineers design the UI and write their manuals.....
