magnificent FM that you can use with pair of digital
filters per element (and that 4 times per voice).
It also has nice sample ROM, a little limited, but
capable of doing some whacky stuff.
check this one out:

You can press hell a lot of juice of this machine,
because using three feedback loops you can even
achieve three "sawtooth oscillator" configuration with
24db/oct filter. Also, samples can be inputted as
modulation sources. Also, FM section has loopable
6-stage envelopes (4x level+rate and 2x release
That's the hightlights, now the dark side: effect
processors. THAY SUCK! really, they're very bad (and
that's why SY99 has them totally redesigned). you have
two SPX90mkII put inside, that means metallic reverb,
very short delays, well- but _that_ symphonic chorus
and pretty nead special FX (distortion, eq). Nullified
it is by pushing chorus/mod section into reverb
section as mono signal- yes, to have chorus stereo,
you'll need to switch the reverb off.
D-550 has been very overused, and in fact it's not a
very big deal IMO- of course it's really great
sounding, but it's very hard to do something really
inventive on it. Well, but it can be done...
