Yamaha TG100

Posted by brunorc on November 7, 2010

Small and cheap multitimbral sound module, bought second-hand as well. Again, sound layering – but nothing more. No filters, no synthesis – NOTHING! So its size was comparable with its capabilities, while its price tag accurately described its sound quality – good, but not even above the average (to be honest, I don’t even remember the price). But it opened the doors to the next dimension of musical creation. Teamed with JX-1 it laid the foundations of my “recording studio” and gave me the first possibility of writing the music… and getting paid for it!

I didn’t keep it for long and sold it (again, no idea about the price) few days after getting my next synthesizer, which conveniently was multitimbral.

I wouldn’t recommend it to anybody – except that you get it for free and you still have some free MIDI output and audio input on your mixer. It’s full of bread’n’butter sounds and it’s small, but you can get Roland JV-1010, which is small as well, but has an awful lot of possibilities, compared to TG100. It was actually so boring crap, that I didn’t even bother to find a photo on the web.
