The TGX-85 is a Yamaha SY-85/TG-500 virtual instrument library eXpansion for Pure Synth Platinum. In keeping with the amazing structure of as PSP, we have included ALL of the raw waveforms from the actual hardware, including the old school drum kits. You get 4-oscillators in which to combine your patches as well as two filters, and two LFOs of which are not offered on the hardware. The arp can be global or per oscillator as well as global and per oscillator effects, depending on the template you choose. In many ways the TGX-85 rivals that of the actual hardware, because of the added modulation sources, the number of effects, and greater polyphony. The goal of the TGX-85 is to virtually put the feeling of the hardware right into your hands.
 

The Yamaha SY-85 was the first digital synthesizer I ever owned. At the time, I felt that it wasn’t up to par with any of the other synths out at the time. I remember I couldn’t wait until I saved enough money to replace it. Boy was I wrong! Now listening to the sounds some years later, I realized that this was one of the most forgotten synths, especially for pads and synths. Now we have a slew of VST effects, and racks trying to mimic the good ol’ digital sound of the 90’s, because those sounds were so raw and grimy. This is what I didn’t appreciate back then from the good old SY-85. The SY/TG is best known for it’s spacious and lush pads; moog-like synth bass, vintage analog brass sounds, very realistic solo strings, the absolute best dance/house piano, and an overall amazing 90’s pop feel. 

The raw digital/gritty sound makes it very unique and special - We can’t express this enough. The synth brass, synth bass, pads, and raw waveforms are very unique and make for some very dirty, digital, and analog sounding pads and synths. The best part is that we feel that M5/UVI has some of the best effects out of any VST, so combing both makes for an amazing virtual emulation. You take those raw low-fi digital samples and you combine them with modern filters and effects, and you get this reminiscent digital synth with an edge. 

Better Than the Hardware

So it is not just enough for us to mimic the actual hardware, but since this is 2014 we feel that we owe it to ourselves to try to improve on the actual sound. You see, for that time, the Yamaha SY-85 could only use the available filters, converters, and D/A equipment available, but now we have way more choices in tools in which to enhance the sound. So we have chosen to run all of the sounds directly through a very unique pair of CAPI VP28 preamp modules. You see, we wanted to keep the nature of the sound from the SY-85 hardware, while at the same time add an overall high-definition sheen, and weight to the sound. This is what these units do! By engaging the Pad on the VP28, we are able to drive the signal through the, oh so sought after, Red Dot transformers, which adds more weight and heaviness to the sound. The coloring to the sound is very minute, but the weight and thickness to the sound is so pronounced and evident. We love the raw and gritty sound of old school digital synthesizers, but we don’t love the thin lifelessness that can sometime come from the units. The VP28s add that extra sheen and color to the raw signal such that it still keeps true to the original hardware, but without the, sometimes, lifeless digital feel.

As a result, for those of you who have owned an SY85/TG500, you will immediately recognize and added fat thickness that you probably haven’t heard before from your unit.
