Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Not so good as the DX7 2"

Yamaha TX802
I want prciser the TX802 is not the sound of a DX7 2.If indeed I possde DX7 FD 2 and TX 802 and TX 816 also with 4 modules and TX 802 n ' not the same as the grain of his 2.If DX7 does not sound the same fishing, there is something missing, I think it comes converters Tx 802.
If you want a multitimbral DX7, well take a TX 816.
Voili voilou!
Good Journe or evening.

Rack version of the DX7 II FM 6 synthse oprateurs algos 32, 16 notes polyphony, 8 multitimbral sounds, 128 presets and 64 user memory, output Stereo outputs + 8 spares.
The CHARACTERISTICS are now Exceeds compltement but this expander in 1988 ...


The manual is poor, a few tens of pages ...
Heureuseent, use and configuration is very easy, for the cons of Fast Fashion synthse FM sounds, that's another story ...


Certainly the largest library of sounds for synths since it is a DX7. You can find everything I love!


I use this expander for 6 years.
I am delighted because I possdais a DX7 II in the 80's that I regret having sold. I console myself with the rack version that I keep dsormais prcieusement.

The price of FM7 virtual afford much of the original OCCAZ rel!

This is neither + nor - one expander 8x DX7 II but with a total of 16 voice polyphony, individual outputs, and two small plastic cards very rigid sliding to visualize at a glance ' eye the various algorithms and others. 64 sounds in ROM, 64 RAM customizable, and 64 of cartridge DX7II (DX7 and with an adapter not found). Otherwise, 100% compatible with the DX7 sysex. Program memories included multis (32 Roma, 32 ram, 32 of cartridge).


Ergonomics, well I find it great! The keypad allows you to write the names (upper / lower case selectable on a button, it is convenient;)), enter values ​​in the speed of light, moving from one operator to another and to transfer them, if necessary, easily .... Then, the various parties (8 DX7II) can be activated directly with 8 buttons below the screen. This is very significant in-game, to stack the sounds gradually, or to isolate a sound throughout the program. The record of only 40 pages, is very well done, but we do not really need so the usage is simple. I have achieved after 2 or 3 months, and only served to me almost nothing, or re-familiarize myself with the jargon of FM. Programming against is something else: see below.


Ah the sounds of the DX7 II (with a better definition than the DX7), and of me, I do not use! There's something for everyone, but I much prefer me to create myself. FM synthesis is very complex, it's true, but the basics are easy. + In our efforts are rewarded with unique sounds, impossible to achieve even 15 x K2600!! Forget everything you think you know FM sounds, as the possibilities are great: I get more bass in granular or fx my MS20 to blush! But we must take the trouble of course. The expression is unique about this type of synthesis of linear or exponential curves allow the nuances of the extent of a keyboard, and this affects the playability of the sound.


For several months I have, and I think it corrects the ergonomic DX7II (I've owned). The separate outputs sorely missing on the keyboard, and are essential for an accurate mix. It is against out of the question to use this machine only, but to complete his set, with its own sound. My only regret concerning its polyphony, but nothing prevents to buy more as its current price is ridiculous (I had to € 150). Great deal !!!!!!!! I round the total score to 9.

See the reviews previous ones, everything is there.
a dtail: no effect (s) "on board", but, coincidentally, the bte marries very well with Yamaha effects. And those are also the prices drisoires. And as someone said a dj, it's just unbeatable. Crez you something impossible (the synthse FM ...) Global Warming and you all with the effect ... Or how to make a synth hyper-efficient, allowing the search for less than 400 ...
For memory, each FM sound oprateurs 6 = 6 envelopes ... TX 802 can be stacked up to 8 sounds ... dj with 3 sounds, there are still 5 voice polyphony available, and one is 18 envelopes, 3 LFOs, the detuning between the sounds, etc ... etc ... add effects ...


The manual is clear, even if sober. The edition is not so difficult is the plutt synthse FM takes effort to understand the principles. must admit that to get change with the aim paramtres a sound rsultat foreseeable, asked a few Entran. but the possibilities are standards ...
The edition of the "combis" (performance in the particular case) is fairly comfortable against. Many shortcuts available.
Note that, as such, I would much 8 / 10. but hey, now, with apps ...


Sound / style of music that can not bte the prs do everything in terms of synthetic sounds. and can not leave anything prs drinking in the area of ​​acoustic instruments. although, some sounds of flute, for example, by changing dynamics of the harmonic content, and no loop is much rvlent use suprieurs (crdibles = more & more music ) a lot of sounds produced by playing back samples.
Style of music: let's say for a symphonic soundtrack is not srement what to ...
and a trio ba / Dr / pno jazz, mvouais ...
but hey, it's a synthtiseur ...


the expressiveness? This is the maximum possible with machines. This is the principle of FM who wants a. Each oprateur the VLOC its sensitivity. Therefore, volume, attack and height of each modulator, or the carrier will vary depending on the CONTRL (VLOC aftertouch / modulation /...)

take a test. DX7 sounds of the famous "tines" yes yes, the electric piano of DX that has invaded the 80's, Listen to the versions you find in all the samples or even readers of the market samplers play in, then return to the original ... Only from the smoothness of tone and expressiveness precisely. You decide ...

+ + + sounds:
shuffled the 2 or 3 sounds, or deformation of sounds not to dpart particulirement bizzarre, but that stirs or cabbage ...
--- sounds:
Yamaha poque preset, or how to get pass a diamond for a clump of earth.
Note max. as synthtiseur. (What, I rpeter ...?)

By the way, it's true that the soft current equivalent is better in absolute terms, but you really have a great sound card to compete with the PCHE and finesse of true. it's not a matter of convertos etc ... it's just a means.
(Yes, because most is capable of such a "potato")


2 years 20 years ago, and since 8 months, bought used for 130 ...
The +: the sound. almost impossible with anything else.
the -: ease of use (Polyphony / no effect / ... not comparable with the current stuff.
I joupossd tal in quite some time. Juno-106/JX-10/S-50/MKS-20 Roland, Korg WAS emax2/esi-32 EMU, Alesis Qs7.1, Dx7/dx7II/SY-77/TG-500 Yamaha, Kurzweil K1000/K2000 ( also the one, it's just scary ...)
repeat the choice.
yes, of course. concd but I was not all that far not.
As always, a matter of choice. So depending on what you want to do, depending on how you want to. a machine will not have. but as such (you know, a s. .......) is a must.
