I just read a very full review. I just want to attract the attention of a potential lover on a rare feature: fashion "alternate". Basically, you fill out a program (up to 8 notes) with the sounds of your choice, with height adjustment, pan (L, L + R, R) and volume. At each grade received, the machine plays the next note. Or, if you have a loop of three notes per measure and seven active sounds, measures 21 before returning to the same sound, played by the same score. I personally have not used often, but nothing that because of this feature, I would not sell it. You tell me that you can achieve this effect with MIDI, well, it's obviously more complicated. And there are not that powerful...…

And there are not that powerful bass, this is a small DX7's in that box!

UTILIZATION

Yamaha machine is never easy. But you can turn it on and play it without reading the manual

SOUNDS

The choice of sounds is necessarily limited. If you buy it, is that these sounds like one.

OVERALL OPINION

I just used, and only when I'm looking for these features sounds. I bought it new in about 1987, it works like the first day and I'm a fan.

I have a rack model, we can change its past without a pc I go to midi controlled with a master keyboard, I go to Jack

UTILIZATION

use is simple and complex it requires a lot of testing to get what we are looking for but after what sin I am Techno and Tranche, I even buy a second one for the sampler to avoid

SOUNDS

I use a lot in my opinion as I think, for low terribly efficient, I realized a remix of Technotronic - Pump up the jam with sample, I managed to reproduce the sound of the bass and it is terrible with TZ81Z

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for all my basses, I have some machinery for vintage sounds from 80 to 90's and I admit that I love these old machines that no longer...…

Is it a model or Rack "rack"?

19 "rack

How many sounds effects? What styles?

Read the manual, some effects, they are anecdotal and very temperamental, it is not really DSP to avoid.

Are they editable? Utility via a Mac / PC?

There is a very good editor who is called TX81Z Program, it allows editing of sounds in real time and extensive control of the machine, I highly recommend: https://the-all.org/tx81z/index.html

Are there any extensions?

You could save patches on his tapes it seems to me, I've never used this feature.

What connection (Audio, MIDI, ...)? ...

Two audio outputs, MIDI IN / OUT / THRU

UTILIZATION

Two audio outputs, MIDI IN / OUT / THRU

UTILIZATION

The general configuration is it simple?

Configuration rather simple if one has bases in MIDI.

Editing sounds and effects is it easy?

Here it spoils a little editing is complex, we must master the fundamentals of FM synthesis (which is not my case), but with the TX81Z Progammer can be fun to mess with the live sounds live with the mouse, which makes finding interesting sounds, even a novice.

The manual is clear and sufficient?

I just laminated, except the configuration section.

SOUNDS

Sounds they agree your style of music?

We must expect more metallic sounds, or psychedelic, the sound is pretty cool overall, but the TX excels on some bass sounds, and allows pretty fantastic leads, the strings are not too bad. For me it suits me very well, it is a synthesizer can do almost anything you want with it, but must tampering.

Are they realistic?

No, it is not his ambition.

The effects are they effective and responsive?

Clearly not, they are gadgets.

The expression is good? (Response to velocity, aftertouch to)?

No worries on that side of my knowledge.

What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?

Lately Bass patch, aaaaaaah, the rest is mostly what is done.

OVERALL OPINION

How long have you been using?

I had one for a long time, then I sold it, but his unique sound was missing and I bought one a year ago, I no longer separate myself, I love my TX: )

What is so special that you like most and least?

+ The sonic possibilities, its sounds good to share.

- Lack of outputs, the complexity level of publishing (forgotten thanks to a MIDI editor).

Did you try many other models before buying it?

At the time I also had a D-110, but I've always preferred the TX for its sonic possibilities.

How do you rate the quality / price?

For 50 €? unbeatable, provided love and having tamper rack effects.

With experience, you do again this choice?

I've redone, says it all ;)

UTILIZATION

complicated programming with cursors and menus to scroll through, but if you dig the beautiful can achieve amazing results

SOUNDS

it is a FM synth sound was so realistic (electric pianos are good enough) and can be very aggressive and the synthetic wish

OVERALL OPINION

I bought 80 euros Used (leboncoin). This is a good deal for anyone who wants FM sound cheap. Certe is not a DX7 but it is a very good synth, which has the advantage of not being affected by the effect of "collector" …
