Product Description

Please note: this is a midi controller only - it doesn't make any noise - you will need one of these Yamaha FM synths to pair it with: DX-5/DX-7/TX-7/TX-802/TX-816.

After decades of bemoaning the lack of physical knobs on the DX-7, finally all is within reach! This stunning programmer adds hands-on control and swift access to your DX-7 etc. You still need some degree of understanding the principles of FM synthesis - randomly turning controls is more hit-and-miss than with an analogue synth here. but it can yield interesting results. Simply being able to switch operators (oscillators) and modifiers on and off and to rebalance their levels (and tuning) is a gamechanger. After a week with my programmer, I am finally starting to understand (about 35 years late) why the DX-7 is Brian Eno's favourite synth!

From the manufacturer:

Hands on programming for the DX7 family

Introduction:
In the early 80's the Japanese engineers invented the digital synthesizer, known as the DX-7 the first portable FM digital synthesizer hit the market.

It was a great success followed, making it in practically every top 10 hit in the 80's and 90's.

The beast never got tamed, as the learning curve to operate it was so steep, people started using presets, and barely touched it's vast array of parameters.

At DTronics we have brought many MIDI solutions and even brought new life to the Roland JX-3 and Alpha Juno series through our dedicated programmers the DT-200 and DT-300.

Being one of the most powerful synths in the world we believe that a DX-7 programmer to explore the powerful array of parameters is a worthy addition to our product line.

DTronics presents:
The DT7 programmer for the DX-series synthesizers. The DTronics DT7 Programmer uses the same type architecture used in our DT-200 and DT-300 series, but on a massive scale!

Key features:
- The DT7 runs it's own software within it's own processors
- Firmware updates over MIDI
- Supporting different types DX-series
