The Complete DX7II by Howard Massey with Flexi-Discs
via this auction
"This is without a doubt the best and most thorough book ever written on how to program and work with the Yamaha DX7II series synthesizer. A lot of the information here is applicable to all FM synths, but it was written specifically for the DX7II, and includes some things not included in the original DX7.
The particular book still has the three included “sound sheets” with all the audio examples. These plastic 33 1/3 rpm records have never been played and are in perfect condition and still attached to the book (see photos).
I am the original owner of this book. I bought it in 1987 when I got my DX7IID. I read it thoroughly in the first year and it has been on my bookshelf or in storage, untouched, ever since. There are exactly 14 pages where I highlighted some information (see photo examples), but other than that this book is in excellent condition.
What with the recently resegence in interest in FM synthesis, this book is still relevent and invaluable."
