Synthstuff Yamaha DX7

The classic DX7 is a digital FM synthesizer from 1983. It completely changed the synthesizer world back then and maybe not in a good way because it heralded a new digital era of “cold” sounding knobless synthesizers and preset dictated music.

Hundreds of thousands were sold and most people used it more as a homekeyboard – using the same old preset sounds for years. Unfortunately, because the DX7’s FM synthesis is capable of a wide rich palette of exotic sounds. If you take the time to program it you will always find new directions to go from haunting thick basses to ethereal dreamy pads….and that makes it an adventurous instrument for generating new unknown sounds.

Some sounds from my DX7:

Gateway to a netherworld – thru some delay

A DX7 layered with a TX7 (a DX7 module) some phasing effects

A rather characteristic piano sound is transformed into unknown FM dimensions

DX7 smackos piano patch

Tweaking a bell sequence

A Square LFO modulates the pitch into a sort of arpeggiated pad

Arp pad

Going through some patches and jamming/noodling along
