    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 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.

    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

    The general configuration is it simple?

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

    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 ;)

    To note that I assigned it in light of current devices ... but also in relation to its rating.

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration is done with the navigation keys and a pair of + / - buttons strolling through menus and submenus endless ...
    I do not even talk about editing sounds, it is a horror!
    I seriously recommend when purchasing, adding a final secondhand netbook with Windows XP and a USB interface 1 midi port to run an editor. Otherwise it is a blow to the disgust FM.

    SOUNDS

    I will not dwell too much on the issue here because everything is a matter of taste. But it is obvious that not using a FM synth to a "piano" or "violin".

    Its fields are percusifs kinds are bells, vibraphone, electric piano and bass "slap".
    With effect input gammme permanently for chorus / phaser / reverb (like Midiverb or DSP2024) we can begin to make tablecloths or "string together" interesting. But still very synthetic.

    Therefore it can not serve as a main generator set. on the other hand, this type of synthesis mixes well with other keeping her personality in the mix.
    One can for example use the generator as "strange percussion" in addition to a boitre ryhtme.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a few years. Synths, I've tried dozens and among the fifteen that I keep active, it is still there ...
    Its biggest flaw (outside the man / machine interface) is an output level a little "feeble." So it is best to physically closest to the mixer (or with a multi-purpose output TRS) because we will add gain and does not amplify noise in the cables.
    In the end, for a ridiculous price and you can add a module a little "exotic" in his set. If you do not want to take the lead must use an editor / Seller external ... see my signature ;)
    Note that I am mindful of the attributes using an external editor.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for about 6 years, my set is composed of the TX and analog synths so my opinion is not too objective, it is oriented analog electronic music.
    Finally, I would definitely need a song has multiple sound sources, otherwise it is tasteless soup, TX brings great energy, beautiful bright idiophoniques with these sounds, the percussive piano with violent and force with which organ through the wall of sound.
    Must love the sound before the music when you go to specific instruments such as the TX.

    The 4 operators FM Expander!

    Yamaha TX81ZPublished on 12/11/12 at 17:49
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Expander unit 1 FM 4 operators. This is NOT the rack version of DX11, 27 or 100! (No choice of waveforms on DX) but identical to the V50 synthesis! ^ ^
    8 voice polyphony and multi-timbral 8 parts.
    128 presets and 32 users.
    2 audio outputs, MIDI IN / OUT / THRU and input / output protection (DIN).

    UTILIZATION

    It is not too complicated to program when you know the Yamaha FM but quickly becomes tedious because of the lack of buttons on the front ... But there is a plethora of software publishers to edit the machine with more flexibility.

    SOUNDS

    Sounds fragrant consoles of the 80s! But there is much more to do thanks to the 8 different waveforms per operator. We can then make sounds that DX can not get (or difficult). The ability to stack sounds or spliter is also a big advantage. Of course all kinds of percussion pads good FM or sweets can be achieved with this "color" 4 operators a bit less rich than 6 ops (but no less interesting) ... Very close in sound of the Yamaha V50 for connoisseurs.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This expander can find its place next to a DX7 adding other sounds and adding multi-timbralité.
    Very convenient to play a little bass and some other FM sounds sequenced in pieces already relying on other machines. Adds an unmistakable and inimitable 1000! ;-)
    I like the format rack well built and with its deep green display reversed.
    At this time (December 2012) and for several years, the price used is the lowest (≈ 80 €) and it worth to fill a rack with space! I think the coast a few years will be in the 150 ~ 200 € ^ ^

    UTILIZATION

    The edition of sounds requires a big, big dose of patience to believe that the guy who did the ergonomics of TX 81 Z wanted to make us crazy! A publisher can be very useful. I love the micro-tuning (Manir to play the keyboard lines lgrement dsaccordes).

    SOUNDS

    The sounds are pretty good, but I would not use it as a single sound source: use the TX 81 Z in a mix dj fact, to give a touch diffrent, take a lead diffrent or an infra-low ... The TX 81 Z is an instrument that asks to be chrisse a bit to give it its full potential.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It is cheap, and has changed the traditional "super-virtual filters", "christallins samples of Hungarian zither" ... The TX 81 Z is a sample reader: it is an authentic old dlicat synthtiseur dj that will dazzle your ears if you take the time to tame.

    other than that, the beast is solid, reliable, does not crash ever, responds immediately when the whistles.
    Note also that the breath controller can be used (for the wind controller noon), and it is one of the few synths to produce sounds for such a WT11.

    UTILIZATION

    Editing sounds is quite long when we know evil.
    sometimes it's hard to choose one it would keep nearly chouille several sounds, do not hesitate to store in order to go back.
    practice the small plastic card super strong and stashed underneath that slides on which is printed the way, so the uninitiated can go without notice.
    Manual gear is useless so simple.

    SOUNDS

    to the question "sounds are realistic?" No, not a sampler. but yes the sounds are realistic about what is expected of a synth, synth sounds ...
    effects, effects, but then why would stick effect in a musical instrument??

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use them for a long time, I summarize: simple, robust, efficient.
    the faithful and helpful stuff that gives sound without taking the head or hair pulling.
    jolibos sounds you make in 15 years they are still there. (It's not the shoot-Poo)
    value for money depends on the price, there's a lot of chicken fucker who would like to sell them at exorbitant prices ("but if you see that the future collector"), but since the person is hard, here worth negotiating to take 4 at once.

    UTILIZATION

    Well strangely, I find the configuration pretty well made, unlike many believe, given the small screen and few buttons. The layout of the menu is well thought out, with a little reminder slid under the screen (original but practical after all.)
    That said, reading the manual is necessary and the use of editing software will greatly facilitate the task. In this connection, I use JSynthLib that works very well.

    SOUNDS

    Well I love the sound. Yes, yes! Well, useless to look for realism in there, but the sounds of synth-bass, tablecloths, leads, FX Low-Fi ... I love it! For that price, I was really pleasantly surprised. Using 8 mono sound on a performance, there are ways to make big, big sound that I like.
    Apart from that, the acoustic sounds are not satisfactory as such, some percussion sounds are interesting, electric pianos and organs are nice.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I did that for two weeks, bought almost on a whim, but I do not regret my purchase. This synth will play a complementary role well, but not the main synth. I would do this choice, given the excellent value for money.

    Aaaah it's on, it's not the REASON 8th or XV of 5080, or the novation or the keyboard, but now it's pure FM, and FM is the backbone of the synthesis mine is not!

    So we are not in the era ism and it took months for dcrocher sound. And programming there was what the doc and the caf!
    C'tait the era of computers 4000 a box o bullets and ben there was nothing in it not even a game or a word processor, it should write his own thing, the TX 's is the same thing.

    Expression? aftertouch? but of course, Portamento and all that stuff, let's go with a ...
    It's not a TB 303 but it's not his thing in TX. It's strange that with a. ..
    The sound that does not exist at all.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Unlike what is said about this poor machine, I possde 2 and I do not spare! I tried the VSTI up FM7 and FM8, not the sound is much more fat and powerful on TX81Z ...

    For background noise, no worries, with good dynamics processor I get out I want the spectrum, finally easy to remove a tiny breath of not much, I recorded a multipise KORG, not to worry paradoxically this machine
    does not need to be corrected by legalization, which is rare when compared with some groovebox 2 balls, potato is missing or too serious or too medium ...
    It makes me laugh now features Bass Boost boiboites on some sounds.

    This is not a BCAN Exceeds, patches are also misleading in it.
    There are several oprateurs, and the spirit of this thing is the hack, must reach all custom settings and make the inaudible in the mini head for 30 minutes.
    And after a while you go out one of his monstrous inside, there intrt trs back quickly because the sound bar as soon trs.
    That's the principle in multi oprateur FM ...

    Without multi Indeed, no relief, the great secret of this BCAN he's sticking to the bottom of the ALESIS, or a good scratch DELAY IBANEZ, the Yamaha SPX, or at best LEXICON, it restores all the the animal's chest, so that even adcape mchant.

    Concrtement but I want to say something, if we can make a truly original track if you really want but must be nice to him, it's so unthinkable today that the coup can kill net.
    When I hear the sounds these days like Garraud electro thing and the rest, bone up on srieusement TX, because you can do the same thing even more dbile again.

    It has something dmentiel the dtuning, then a pure joy.
    I will not Retailer technique above, but you have several DX 7 in ...
    Me that possde 2, hh l there is enough fun.
    I have fun all the time by then shuffled or do a simple patch like layer of several minutes and a bar is in every sense, it imprvisible, and it is a duly . And especially the poop VSTI ct.

    I have a friend who had pass FM Heaven, full of patches, oh no, not even aa DSOL relief is soft but the FM platform, the TX not he, this toy is fun, it's a pure ben. Yes ok for Lately Bass etc etc ... but the real trick is custom settings, the values ​​must all drgler figures, and we take his foot.
    And once again, a multi-effect derrire and good if possible, you'll change the head and you run APRS those that sell 3 to nothing secondhand 50, Misr ... Take the par 4!

    Others have well described. I would add that unlike the DX-7, there is no fixed frequency "super low" or pitch envelope and the envelopes are much coarser. In addition, the functions of keyboard tracking its almost non-existent (where the DX-7 are simple but effective), so it's hard to make a sound that sounds good on the whole range (eg pianos).
    on the other hand there are effects to simulate the envelope of the reverb (at the expense of the polyphony of course). Instead of using only the sinuses as the DX-7, carriers can generate 8 different waveforms. I use to edit sounds Caged Artist's TX-81Z editor for Atari.

Instead of using only the sinuses as the DX-7, carriers can generate 8 different waveforms. I use to edit sounds Caged Artist's TX-81Z editor for Atari. No extension possible, but with FM synthesis, does not, all the potential is already in the box! I put 6 because frankly level features, it's not terrible.

    UTILIZATION

    It is simple to use. In use, the polyphony of 8 channels is really fair, and multitimbral mode is therefore difficult to use. But for the price it can pay 2 who can work: there is a special setting in which the TX will not play the notes either side. So with two TX-81Z, 16 channels can be achieved under specific conditions. FM synthesis is mégapuissante, and even if we only have 4 operators, the ability to choose between 8 basic waveforms gives an incredible tonal variety to it.
    I put 6 because it is usable but with such a small screen, you spend more time surfing than to change the settings (if it was not an editor on the computer).

    SOUNDS

    As mentioned by another AFiste advised, put behind a multi-effects is required. But then there it kills! It sounds more dirty and nasty as VSTi fi ethereal, it can make crazy synth sounds (FM requires), we have never been around! It is truly unique! With me, it's always him or Juno 2 that is very low metal.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had it 2 years ago I had a DX-7IIF / D I had the misfortune to sell (need € €) and I missed everything after. If it all over again, maybe I'd take a V-50, which has a keyboard, sequencer, reverb and above 16 voice polyphony. But the TX-81Z it is cheap and it is big! Sounds FMS, brass, electric piano, percussion, bass, although "80"! And it's fun to program (a computer), one can spend hours there!
    But what Yamaha expects to recover from their FM synths? Almost 20 years after the brilliant TG-77 they do not know we propose that ordinary readers samples :-( With the exception of the DX200 (old motor DX-7, 1983) and too confidential FS1R (thank you for coyotte14 have mentioned). Yet it must be very expensive addition to an FM synth! It annoys me and just for that I want to keep my TX-81Z.

    1 Rack Unit - Traditional FM Synthesis - Number of algorithms max 8 - 8 voice polyphony - Multimbralité 8 shares. (Note: some internal algorithms can add up)

    Simple to use - basic edition is for the FM synthesis - at that time nobody knew how to manual.

    SOUNDS

    Is a good little bass synth expander nerveurses, the rest is completely outdated, but tpout everyone knows that even in music and sound colors, there is always one-sided ' 'revival.'' If you do not have expander Fm, it is an instrument of service to you from time to time.
    Occaz side, it's not worth more than 1000 francs.
