Yamaha DX7, TX81z, SY35 and SY77: The Ultimate Review

video upload by Off The Matrix

"This review compares the sounds of a DX7, TX81z, SY35 and SY77 side by side. Over 20 years was spent creating the Off The Matrix patches, so the review will reveal the true strengths of each of the instruments. The first part will be a demonstration the DX7, TX81z and SY77 playing the same patches. To my surprise the TX81z sounded better for a couple of the patches. The video will cover the strengths of the TX81z and SY35 over the DX7. The video will end with demonstrations of the SY77 patches as well as the new SY99 samples. A TQ5 was used to play the TX81z patches, so through much of the video the SY35 is playing the TX81z patches.
