“A great tone generator which I used to power a keytar maybe three times. It worked perfectly. The reason I listed it as new other is I used about three times since I owned it (15 years) so it is not new but might as well be…..” Link

yamahatx81z “You are bidding on a used Yamahe TX81Z fm tone generator. I’ve owned this since brand new 20 years ago. It’s been sitting in my personal studio closet as a back up for years along with a lot of other gear that I have to get rid of retiring and moving. It’s got scuffs and scrapes but is tested and works great. Pictures are of the actual item.” Link

tx81z “This TX81Z is in great condition with some light cosmetic wear. Functionally this synth is amazing, there are some scratches on the top and bottom of the unit but the faceplate is in great shape. These flaws are common with a synth that has been around for nearly 30 years. Don’t be fooled by the age though, this synth is built to last.
I am selling because I haven’t been using it as much in my studio and would prefer to invest the money elsewhere.” Link

TX-81Z, Yamaha @ 21 October 2016, Comments Off on Yamaha TX81Z

tx81z “Selling all of my gear this week. This listing is for a Yamaha FZ81Z rack synth.

This synth has a very similar sound to a DX7 in that it uses FM to create sounds. It is really good for bells, chimes, and lots of sparkly late 80s sounds. This one was used alot in early 90s dance music, especially the preset “Lately Bass”.

I have only used this one for the built in preset sounds. It needs a new internal battery, so if you edit your sounds, they’ll be lost when you power off/on. This hasn’t bothered me because it’s actually nearly impossible to program the thing. I have replaced batteries in my other synths just never spent the time on this one. The only other issue it has is the output jacks work better with some cables than others. You sort of need to get the cable in just the right spot for it to work.” Link

yamahatx81z “Classic 4 operator FM synth that remains popular and powerful to this day. Famous for its tough sounds, particularly the “Lately Bass” preset patch. Tons of sysex files and several editors for this machine are available online. When sequenced with an external sequencer or DAW, the TX81z is capable of 8 part multi-timbral performance (separate sounds responding on separate MIDI channels). With the array of available sounds (including drums), this module can easily be used this way to perform entire songs and compositions.” Link

The TX81Z has 128 preprogrammed sounds that are each modifiable and you have 32 storage locations on Bank I that you can modify and store your favorite sounds or combination of sounds for quick access in the studio or while performing live. While this module has been popular with bass players I used it with my MIDI Wind Controller (for sale in another auction) combined with another tone generator to produce some amazing and unique sounds for live performances. Please review the pictures for the condition and features. It is working perfectly and sounds amazing.” Link

I left a lot of my custom bass patches on the synth, so this could be a real gem for deep house/house heads.” Link

tx81z ” YAMAHA TX81Z FM Multi-timbral Tone Generator
A great programmable 1980s rack-mounted synthesiser

This 1980’s rack mounted synth in excellent condition and is in full working order.

The unit is multi-timbral with:

128 factory patches

32 user patches

24 user performances

Standard 19″ rack mounting

I am updating my studio, as I wish to work in a ‘different’ way; therefore I am selling off much of my hardware, which now rarely gets used. The TX81Z may be ‘dated’, but it produces some amazing basses and of course original retro 80s synth sounds.

Included is the original Owner’s Manual, and original Yamaha Brochure.” Link

used tx81z “The project was completed a year ago, and I no longer have any use for it, as I’m not into programming or sequence recording. I fired it up, tested out several of the presets, all of which sounded as they were supposed to, and it will come with the original Yamaha Owners Manual, which I might add is one of the more “user friendly” ones I’ve come across. I’m selling without any reserve, as that is how I purchased it.” Link
