The Yamaha SY99 is a synthesiser combining frequency modulation synthesis (branded as Advanced FM) and sample-based synthesis (branded as Advanced Wave Memory 2) and the direct successor to Yamaha's SY77/TG77

I noticed something odd when I load samples at different rates into the SY99. Samples at 22050 Hz playback 30 cents sharp, so they need to be tuned by 30 cents. But samples a 28 kHz playback in tune. One would think that the samples a 22050 Hz would playback in tune because they are half of the 44.1 kHz? I noticed that EMU used 28 kHz a lot for their library for the Emulator III. The rate can capture the frequencies for most sounds. So I used the 28 kHz rate often for the collection I created for the SY99.
