Description

Digital Programmable Algorithm FM Synthesizer for home or studio use

Features

Dual and Split Mode

In Dual and Split Modes, two different voices can be played in unison or on separate parts of the keyboard and output in stereo.

Stereo Effects

The Pan parameters not only let the user determine the position of voices in the stereo field according to key touch or when part of the keyboard is played, but also create various special effects such as automatic panning between left and right channels.

Fractional Scaling

Operator output level Scaling can now be programmed individually for each group of three keys, giving the user natural keyboard control over timbre and volume.

Micro Tuning

Micro Tuning gives the user the possibility of "tempering" the instruments in any conceivable way. Preset tuning variations include Equal, Pure (C major, A minor) and Mean Tone temperaments.

Unison Key Modes

In the Unison (mono and Poly) Modes, 4 sound generation units are assigned to each key. These can be detuned to achieve a "fat" sound.

Pitch Bend

Pitch Bend can be programmed so as to affect only the lowest or highest note of a chord, or notes played but not their sustained sound. In addition, pitch bend effects can be controlled by aftertouch or breath controller.

Performance Memories

Save favorite voice combinations along with pan and various control settings in special "Performance" memory.

Glissando Pitch

With the Portamento Step parameter, Glissando Pitch stepping can be regulated from 1 semitone to 1 octave.

Storage of Voices and Performance Data Groups

Store 64 voices and 32 "Performance Data Groups" each in the internal memory and optional RAM cartridge memories for hundreds of voice combinations.

Low Frequency Oscillators (LFO)

The DX7IID has 16 Low Frequency Oscillators (LFO), one for each voice. In the multiple trigger mode, a totally independent LFO cycle can be started for each note played, making ensemble vibrato and tremolo more realistic.

Micro Tuning

Micro Tuning gives the user the possibility of "tempering" the instruments in any conceivable way. Preset tuning variations include Equal, Pure (C major, A minor) and Mean Tone temperaments.

Yamaha Dx7 (240€) or DX7 II FD (350€) wich one should i buy?

...is on a DX7 kick lately. Ironic, analog makes a comeback and now so does FM. Anyway having owned DX7 original DX7IID DX7IIFD without a doubt ....DX7IIFD. Reasons are, original is mono (not necessarily a bad thing), the LCD is harder to edit because there is less characters, DX7IIFD does dual layer patches, unison. And...

February 2018 New Gear Thread

...when programming compared to my old DX's of yesteryear. I found I was creating sounds I never did on my DX7IID. Makes quite a difference. Perfect for laying on the sofa with a pair of headphones. (The onboard speakers are a little quiet, but do the job) For a 4-OP FM synth, it does...

DX-7 or DX-7 II...???

...of the DX7 II-d made? Am working on my brother's DX7 (battery replacement) and heard some great sounds out of the DX7-IId on Youtube, but no space for a full keybed. (His keys are being worked on in the breezeway, no room for a 5 octave synth in my lab) No big woop if there isn't. thanks
