"Yamaha's TX81Z first went on sale in 1987. The TX81Z is a great four‑operator FM type synth sounds similar to the DX-21 and DX-27. Eight voice polyphony, 128 preset sounds, 32 user and lots of functions hidden behind 11 push buttons.

The rear panel is home to MIDI In, Out and Thru sockets, two audio outputs and an unusual eight‑pin socket used for connecting a cassette recorder to load and save patch data.

In 'Single' mode the TX81Z acts as a single, eight‑note‑polyphonic instrument. In 'Performance' mode it can be up to eight‑part multitimbral, although polyphony is still limited to eight notes.

There are 128 preset patches, and 32 memory slots are provided for storing user patches. There are also 24 memory slots in which Performance data — ie. settings for volume, polyphony, MIDI channel, and so on for each of the selected voices that make up a 'Performance' — can be stored.
