Here for the gear
 

I voted FM8. It does one important thing the DX7 doesn't. You can set fixed frequency operators to less than 1Hz. Of course, it does a lot of other useful tricks but this is the only thing I really miss when playing the DX7.

Hexter > FM8 for sound quality. Big difference, it can almost match the hardware DX7
But it seems to be missing the portamento, and other things. But it's a clone of the DX7, so doesn't really do much more than that

As far as oscillators go, you won't need the 6 like DX7 since you can generate a sawtooth and feedback without using a modulator-carrier thing, in Bazille and Zebra etc

Did anyone else try e-femme?

It's the only FM synth I've been using regularly, only because it is so simple I understand it, lol. If you tried it, did you like the sound?

That would also mean that for example the FS1R or the VZ-10M, both with 8 operators each one with multiple waveforms are an overkill? I think not...
