Any Yamaha DX7 users in the house ? Was lucky enough to find a used TX7 some time ago, such an amazing instrument, especially if you're into ambient or retro 80s sounds.

Looks like it's going to make a comeback this year with the whole cross-platform patch sharing capabilities with the Korg Volca FM.

I had one but programming good sounds was extremely time consuming on it. Lots of menus diving and fiddling with parameters etc. on a poor quality screen meant that I sold it.

Have heard the programming is a pain... in the case of the TX7 it's not even accessible. Was enjoying the many presets in the beginning, then that got boring but discovered this librarian/VST called Dexed soon after. It's a bit buggy sometimes but opens the programming bit up completely.

There's also some hardware out there for programming...

FM8 is awesome. Just trying to focus on the hardware stuff here in the Equipment section.

btw, the new Korg Voca FM can support all DX7 patches. So for anyone with Volca FM here's a treat.

20,000 patches download!
