PATCH architecture is composed by 1, 2 or 4 PCM samples or ELEMENTS read out from internal ROM wavetable.
Each PCM ELEMENT can be individually edited with various parameters:
- volume mix
- pitch tuning
- effect amount
- keyboard zone
- special drum kit mode assigns 61 PCM in a single patch.
WAVETABLE internal 2 MB ROM contains 74 PCM (PCM LIST) waveforms sampled at 32 / 48 kHz organized 3 categories: acoustic, digital and drums:
- 50 PCM acoustics samples e.g organs
- 8 PCM basic digital waves e.g sawtooth
- 16 PCM various acoustic drums and percussions .
A collection of set of DATA / DATA +PCM cards were available. AI2 PCM cards are compatible between different Yamaha machines, so you can use SY-99 cards , TG77 RY30 on any 55 series. Note: This list is not complete.

Based on a custom IC YM7119 featuring 2 digital resonant filters in cascade, each with a -12dB slope:
- Filter 1 mode is both lowpass and highpass
- Filter 2 mode is only lowpass
TIP: Cutoff can be controller by LFO or dedicated EG, but not both at the same time.
Single delayed digital modulator (shapes: saw up, saw down, triangle, sinewave, square, triangle and sample& hold) for each ELEMENT and 3 destinations:
- AMOD: LFO to amplitude
- PMOD: LFO to pitch
- CUTOFFMOD : LFO to filter cutoff.
3 EG families per element:
- AEG amplitude : 4 segments + 5 levels and octave scaling setting.
- PEG pitch: 4 segments + 5 levels and octave scaling setting.
- CEG1 filter: 6 segments + 5 levels and octave scaling with special breakpoints
- CEG2 filter: 6 segments + 5 levels and octave scaling with special breakpoints.
Module manages up to 16 parts each with assigned
reserved polyphony, pitch tuning, panning position, volume
and effect amount.
TIP: the global pitch amount can be assigned to aftertouch or randomized for each note..
The Special CONTROLLER section (in utility mode) allows to assign some parameters like filter cutoff, volume, modulations to any control changes on the Midi list.
Full sysex implementation is supported.
- some dated internal waves
- sweeping filter
