Yamaha DX7 FM Synthesizer SN 101098

via this auction

I have a new found appreciation for the DX7 and FM synthesis. I finally got around to exploring my DX-200 again and it offers so much more than your bread and butter sounds. The timbres evolve in a way that actually remind me of the Buchla music easel. I now understand why Barry Shrader explored FM synthesis after the Buchla.

BTW, if you have a DX7 based 6-Op FM synth, I highly recommend the DX7 editor in Patch Base by Coffeeshopped LLC. Be sure to click the little algorithm icon on the bottom left of the editor. It will arrange the operators on screen according to the selected algorithm. You can also double tap any oscillator to bring up a larger screen to edit. If you own an iPad it's a must have editor imo.
