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:

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


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 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.


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 ;)
