“Seven DX-7s in one rack mount unit, 4U high.
Batteries are recent (2015).
I have owned it since 1986.” Link
“It is in good physical condition with minor dings and scratches from normal use. The inside might need a bit of cleaning.” Link
” Up for sale is our Yamaha TX816 synthesizer rack with four TF1 DX7 engines loaded.
Although the TF1 modules are the DX7 engine, these have balanced XLR outs… That gives a MUCH cleaner, louder sound. The original DX7 is known for being very noisy, these are much cleaner and bolder sounding… Essentially the sonics are much like a DX5.
This TX is in full working condition, all TF1 modules work and sound great. The rack is very scuffed up for years of use, but like anything Yamaha… It’s built to last.” Link
“Up for Auction is a Vintage Yamaha TX216 Midi Rack. This unit powers up, but we were unable to test this unit further as it is not our expertise. Has some scuffs and scrapes, but overall in good cosmetic condition. ” Link
” This is a Yamaha TX816 MIDI Rack. Only 7 of the spaces are filled. The 8th space has the factory blank panel. (There is no “TX716″ but that is what it should be called) Back when I used it. I gradually added modules to it, and only got up to 7. When I got this, it was arguably the coolest synthesizer available. Each module is the equivalent of a DX7 synthesizer, except with high-quality balanced +4 outputs for studio and pro use. Sounds fantastic. Manufactured in the late 80s, original list close to $5k.” Link

wir räumen unseren Proberaum auf! Unter den Hammer kommt daher
ein YAMAHA TX216 MIDI Rack mit 4x TF1 Modulen
Informationen zum Gerät gibt es zum Beispiel hier: http://www.sequencer.de/syns/yamaha/TX816_TX416_TX216.html .
Das Gerät war fest in einem Rack verbaut und funktionierte bei seinem letzten Einsatz vor ca. 5 Jahren einwandfrei. Seitdem stand das Gerät nur (im Rack verbaut) im trockenen Proberaum.
Zum Zustand lässt sich folgendes sagen:
Leiche Lackkratzer vom Rackeinbau sind vorhanden
Das Gerät lässt sich einschalten und bedienen, das Display leuchtet und zeigt an. Allerdings konnte ich die Midi-Eingänge und –Ausgänge mangels fehlender Gerätschaften nicht testen.
Dem Rackeinbau ist es auch geschuldet, dass der Netzstecker des Gerätes ausgetauscht wurde und das Netzkabel relativ kurz ist (siehe Bild).
In eine der rückseitigen Blenden wurde eine Aussparung gesägt, vermutlich verlief hier einmal ein Kabel.” Link
” Yamaha TX416 Rack Mount FM synthesizer. This is a TX 816 rack with 4 modules. It has the legendary Yamaha FM synthesizer sounds that were used on so many hits in the 1980′s. Basically it is 4 DX7′s in a rack. From beautiful bells to Rhodes piano’s and Marimbas it has a unique sound and when layered it sounds fat and so musical. I used this on many hit records from Luther Vandross,Miles Davis, Roberta Flack, Chaka Kahn and many more. I am also throwing in the Beetle programmer that makes programming it a breeze. It was not working because I need a AC adapter for it-But if you buy this it will be worth looking into getting it as it makes programming a breeze. The 416 has been in The same rack for years just sitting there-Time to get somebody to use it. let this be known that the Beetle is a throw in-You may need to pay to get it fixed. I haven’t used it in 20 years. If you bid on that just let that be known upfront” Link

” Rare unit with some wear but overall in beautiful shape (check pics)! Comes with 4 TF1 modules!” Link
” The sonic power of two DX-7 keyboards in one rack unit. Beautiful, crisp, clear FM synthesis. Thousands of free sounds are available on the internet. This unit has been tested and is fully functional. The soldered-in memory back-up batteries have been replaced with new battery holders and fresh new batteries. Battery replacement will now be a snap! Batteries are cheap and easy to find CR2032. This synth is ready to play!” Link
“This auction is for a Yamaha TX216 MIDI Rack Synthesizer rack. My uncle is a keyboard player and has asked me to sell his old equipment for him. All of my keyboard and synthesizer equipment is in used working condition.” Link
“Item is used — powers up, typical rack rash. It’s spent the last 25 years in my climate-controlled studio rack. I haven’t actually connected it to a console in over two decades, so it’s being sold as-is — which is why the cost is low.” Link

“Used Yamaha TX216 synthesizer module: TX frame with 2 TF1 modules. Tested basic functions – ok. Will add additional photos in a few days. If you are interested in just a single TF module or just the frame, contact me. Vintage gear sold as is. Includes unit only, no cables or anything else pictured in photos.” Link
“This listing is for a Yamaha TX216 FM Synth Module. This is the modular TX rack loaded with 2 TF1 modules (expandable to 8), each one being a complete DX7 tone generator. Prized by pro players, collectors, and studios. Complete features and specs on the TX rack system are available online.
This one works great, good batteries, too! It has a little typical rack wear from use but nothing too bad (see pictures). The pullout card is in tact, too, but the edge tab for it is gone (common). It comes with the manuals as shown.
BONUS SOUNDS – We’ll also include a huge library of extra DX/TX sounds for the buyer! Standard Sysex format, emailed directly to you.” Link
” THIS A RARE MULTI SOUND MODULE. WAS PAIRED WITH QX 1 SEQUENCER WHICH I HAVE ONE ALSO FOR SALE. THIS ONE HAS 3 TF1′S WHICH CAN BE EXPANDED TO 8. CAN BE OPERATED FROM ANY MIDI SEQUENCER OR KEYBOARD. SOUNDS CAN BE ROUTED THRU ONE AUDIO OUT OR INDIVIDUAL OUTS OF EACH TF1..” Link
This midi rack has four working TF 1 modules and the rack itself is quite rare!” Link
Plugged in all lights work
Selling as is…” Link
“The synthesizer comes from a professional studio and is in excellent working condition. There are some scratches but the synthesizer is fully functional. The power knob is missing. The cord has no rips, fraying or repairs. There is some glare in the photos that could not be avoided.” Link
We all love the DX 7 sound. It’s a beautiful counterpoint to a thick beefy analog synth. It does pads and weird sounds with ease. The DX 7 (and variants) are known for classic bass sounds, rivalling even the MiniMoog for sheer number of songs with some type of DX bass.
So, which one to buy? That’s always the question. Sure the DX 7 gives you some buttons, a display, and sliders, so you *can* edit from the front panel. The TX-802 is a nice rackmount with 8 separate outs, but only 16 voices. A full TX-816 ends up being more of a headache than a benefit — how exactly are you going to route and manage all those separate outputs and MIDI connections anyway?
So, consider a TX 816 with 2 modules like this one. A single MIDI cable plugged into the front, wire up the outputs as a L/R pair and have a nice stereo DX machine with 32 voices available to split/layer/or run separately.
What I’ve been doing is using one module for basses and lead sounds and using the other for pads and weird FX type stuff. It’s just enough FM without being a nightmare to manage and use. 32 voices is plenty even if you dedicated one module to long sustained string/pad sounds.
As always – worldwide shipping. The TX power supply is labelled 120 volts for the US market. Overseas – you’ll either need a step down transformer or have your tech rework the AC input board (service manual available on-line).” Link
THE PHOTOS THAT ARE SHOWN ABOVE ARE OF THE ACTUAL ITEM YOU WILL RECEIVE.
NOTE: NEW BATTERIES / FACTORY PROGRAMS RELOADED ” Link
Here is a working power supply and frame (120 volts) and two non-working TF1 modules. As you can see from the pix, one module locks up on power on and the other is displaying a memory error. One of the modules is missing the battery (a standard coin cell type deal) (maybe the previous owner thought it would help clear the erros?? who knows?).
I bought these as backups/spares/test modules/test frame while I was woking on my MPA mod to enable MIDI control over the Out Slot select button. That project was successful (some links/pix/info on my rather spartan website if you care — google is your friend) and I didn’t fry anything in the process, so these things are extra.” Link
“You are bidding on a Yamaha TX816 with 4 TF1 Modules. Basically its 4 DX-7′s in rack form. Included are 4 XLR cables and a print out of the manual. The synth works perfect. It has rack rash from and typical blemishes for a synth of its age.” Link
“Yamaha DX 7 Brain 5 pack 3 tier rack Mount Its like having 5 Yamaha DX 7 in the house. If you know Synths this is a very versatile unit capable of Full MIDI of up to over 700 programable sounds that only the DX7 can achieve” Link
This unit is in good shape. It’s been sitting in a recording studio with very few outside studio gigs since I bought it new. It includes the original documentation including an Owner’s Manual and Operations Directory as well as a Tri-fold sales brouchure. The battery has JUST been replaced in each of the four units and the memory reloaded. Except for a few minor dings in the paint job, this unit is in like new condition. THIS IS NOT A PLUG-AND-PLAY SYNTHESIZER! IT REQUIRES A MIDI CONTROLLER AND A LEARNING CURVE. IF YOU DON’T FEEL YOU HAVE THE PATIENCE TO FIGURE OUT HOW THIS PIECE WORKS, PLEASE DON’T BID.” Link
