What is a Yamaha TX7 and why you should buy one over a DX7

video upload by Ian Dixon

Spotted this one in the previous listing and decided to post it separately. The video is from Mar 16 this year.

"If you are looking for classic 80s vintage synth sounds, then you are instantly going to think of the Yamaha DX7. It's one of the most iconic and influential synths of all time and used on countless eighties hits. Think A-ha, Kenny Loggins, Phil Collins and Brian Eno. However, before you hit ebay or Reverb searching for the DX7 you should consider its little brother: the TX7.

UPDATE: The demo song is now availbe on Spotify

The TX7 is a desktop module version of the DX7. It has the same sound engine as its big brother, with 6 operator / 32 algorithm FM and 12bit Digital to Analog converters.

In this video I look at what the TX7 can do, how you can edit sounds on a TX7 and why should look at a TX7 over a DX7.
