“I have owned the synth for a number of years, and have had no trouble with the operation of this synth. All knobs and buttons are there and functional. I have made sure to show any and all cosmetic flaws in the photos. Shipping will be actual cost, don’t follow Ebay’s shipping charge it’s incorrect. If you are looking for a MM+ synth that sounds and works great, here it is. I am including the synth, copies of all manuals both printed and on cd, power cord and a blue metal flight case in this auction.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
“Everything on the synthesizer works perfectly. Note that no battery nor power supply will be provided (you can buy a power supply at the store for like 10 bucks). I only ship in the USA. You will have to pay for shipping costs. The accent cap is missing, but it’s really unnecessary because you can still turn the knob without it. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
” This is a Yamaha SY22 synthesizer. It is a type of synthesizer called a vector synthesizer, which is a family of synths that includes the Korg Wavestation and the Prophet VS. What makes Yamaha’s version of vector synthesis (dynamic vector synthesis) is that it also has 2 FM operators which can use the RAM samples as operators. It, like the other popular vector synths includes a joystick for mixing between the “vectors”, and joystick motions can be recorded and replayed as part of the patch – a feature not seen on the Prophet VS or the Wavestation. This is an extremely unique synthesizer, and in my opinion under appreciated.
The condition this synthesizer is in is excellent. It was previously owned by a church, and was taken care of extremely well. It was kept very clean, and was stored in a protective case when not in use/ being stored. It was made in 1990, and is in better condition that a lot of synths a fraction of it’s age. The case is also in great shape, although the foam does have some slight imprints from the feet of the synth while it was stored. It is a hard case with metal hardware and a body that is hard but coated with a soft grey wool material. I assume it was made for this synthesizer in particular, but that’s just speculation. The two memory cards that are included are MCD32 cards. Judging by auctions that have sold on ebay they are each worth roughly $50-60 a piece.
What you get:
1 Yamaha SY22 Dynamic Vector Synthesizer
1 Hard Case for Yamaha SY22
2 MCD 32 RAM cards
* Power Cord *
– It is a 12V DC with positive polarity. A universal power adapter that goes up to 12V will work.
– I am willing to include the universal power adapter I used to test the synth for an additional $8, however I would recommend you just purchase one from a local store. Just make sure it can go up to 12V.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
“Some oil stains and missing paint on the left hand controls (pitchwheel faders etc) Some keys are loose and after touch may or may not work. most likely not, there are simple methods to fix this. memory cartridge untested but seems fine and all sounds come out fine. i believe it’s in decent condition for its age.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
” You are viewing a used Korg EX-800 Programmable Polyphonic Synthe Module. Classic analog synth sound. It comes with the original power supply and owner’s manual. The unit is in good, working condition. I only tested the patches using a Yamaha DX-7 as a controller. All of the standard patches seem fine, and it seems to go into the edit modes when the switches are switched in the back. One owner (recording studio). Originally purchased 11/8/1985.
This unit is being sold AS IS. It is assumed that you know what you are buying. Please be aware of what the voltage is in your country. The US is 120volts, 60Hz, which is what the power adapter operates on.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
” Purchased off of Ebay a little over a year ago. Paid $350ish and haven’t used it much, need the space for another synth and I have enough other ones that cover the sounds in this one. My loss, your gain.
All buttons work but about half need a little wiggle when pushing them. Board probably needs a good cleaning and/or some contact cleaner. Some screws appear to be missing but the unit still seems secure. Tape residue on the bottom from the person that mailed it to me and should come off easy with rubbing alcohol. Since purchase a little over year ago it has stood on end with other synths or been on a rack. Sold As is. I tested everything before taking the pics and posting this.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
” this CX-5MU was a project of mine. when I found the Synth it did not have the any of it other parts so I had to find a way to use it. first I made a normal MIDI cable in to a adaptor for video so I can see the MSX interface on my TV. then I needed a way to get it to play sound so I took apart the FM Synthesizer Unit and soldered a small switch on the side just above the Music Keyboard port so that if in the future I got the Keyboard it could be plugged in. I have uploaded all the pics I could to show what I have done. I hope its not to much or just enough to make it easy to use. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
“This Six-trak is in excellent condition and is 100% functional. I have owned it since 1997, and it has been absolutely solid the entire time I’ve had it. I’m only selling it to downsize ahead of cross country move. It sounds massive and warm, exactly as it should. Unison mode is especially dangerous so use with caution! I recently cleaned the rubber button contacts, so all buttons work perfectly. All synth parameters work correctly, including sequencer, arpeggiator, and midi. I did note that the master volume pot occasionally has a very minor crackle when it is adjusted. However, it is so minor, I never really noticed this in 17 years of owning it.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

I believe this unit has the older, sought after filter chip. Please see the second photo, there is no trimmer in the VCA diagram. There are some scratches and a couple spots on the keys. I see two little rubber trimmer caps are missing on the panel. USA voltage version. All 4 rubber feet are fine.
I spent some time last weekend making sure everything I could think of worked and it did. That said this is an vintage unit. After working the pots back and forth without being too rough they worked without sounding scratchy. I do not guarantee that after all sorts tests you can come up with you won’t find a small problem or two that I’ve missed.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“ARP AXXE Restored by Syntronics. This is the newer Orange face type but I had to use the older (but new) style slider caps on it. I have Cleaned and tested everything. Calibrated the Power supply and tested it. Calibrated the Oscillator, transpose and tuning. Lubed, Cleaned & DeoxIT the sliders. The sliders move well some are a little tighter than others but that is not unusual. DeoxIT the Switches. It is stable & sounds pretty good. PPC works fine. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

One mod was removed and capped in the stepped section of the SSG (see pics). There’s also a small scratch below the blue jack in the SSG stepped section that is visible in the darker picture. Noise outputs have been added in-house by Rex (grey= white, purple = pink, green = s/h source). Sync inputs on the SSG are also orange which was requested by the original owner. Also, this panel requires two slots on your distro board.
Its a really great panel but unfortunately I have other plans at the moment. It is available for pickup in Portland Oregon” Click here to visit listing on eBay
” 80s Akai first digitally controlled analog synth. Used on Bjork’s “Homogenic” album. Unit has been tested using audio and midi output. All keys, knobs, buttons, LEDs and displays function. Unit sounds amazing. Fully programmable, warm, dense, lush analog sounds that you wont get with plugins. Signal to noise ratio is stunning, unit is dead quiet. Very clean, a few nicks and small scratches, missing plastic control knob and one missing knob cap. A few psu components recently replaced. Inexpensive memory battery might need to be replaced in the near future as some of the stored custom user presets appear with staggered green leds that reappear once the value slider triggers them. Includes digital manual and hard to find, expensive replacement parts for a complete psu restoration. Pictures were taken with front panel screws removed, they are not missing.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
“1970’s serial 1838. Just finished a complete cleaning, and tuning and ready to record. I also just bought a new pro road case from Georgia Case Company, and the case is heavy duty with wheels. The Minimoog, has been modified in one small way which is real helpful with its sound: Down by the modulation wheels, there is an extra control oscillator, newly replaced, with sawtooth or sine wave control and a speed pot for those controls, and above that on the main control board, is the off/on switch that gives this new oscillator control, or releases the control back to main oscillator #3. This really helps with vibrato effects allowing you to utilize all three main oscillators for a fatter tone.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
“I have a beautiful Moog Source for sale. If you are not already familiar with this board, you’ve probably heard artists like Page McConnell of Phish playing it regularly. The Source was Moog’s first synthesizer to offer patch memory storage, which is a huge plus for anyone who doesn’t want to write down all of the settings for a patch. It is also significantly cheaper than the $3000 you have to fork over for a Minimoog, and the bass packs just as much punch. This board is in near-mint condition for its age. The membrane is fully functional, and the wood is as close to perfect as they come (see pictures for details). If you’ve been hunting for one of these, you’ll see that finding this board in this condition is almost impossible these days, so if you are interested as a collector or player, this is a great chance for you to own and create music with a piece of analog history. Auction includes the board, a lightweight flight-case, and a power cord.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
