Yamaha FB-01

“Comes loaded with 240 factory presets and 96 user presets for 336 Yamaha FM sounds.

Most FB-01’s come with banks 1, 2, 3 loaded with the same sounds.

Banks 1 and 2 are Ram banks and I have loaded sounds from the DX-21 and DX-100 into these banks.

So you get 336 different sounds instead of just 240.

Check the sound list, you get FM pianos, basses, bells, organs, percussion, Leads; everything basically.

Fully Functional, Nice Physical Condition.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” The FB-01 is simply an inexpensive, 8 part multitimbral digital FM synth module. It’s a 4-operator synth similar to the DX9 or DX100. You will need an external MIDI system exclusive editor to edit the patches. This can be accomplished by a dedicated editor program like Unisyn, or by creating SysEx control messages within your sequencing program. The FB-01 has a lot of organ, piano, brass, bass, guitar, percussion, and lead sounds. Basically this is a good source of typical FM-sounds.

Notes – this is 120V model.
It’s not in great condition so I am selling it for spares or repairs only.
The transformer is a little noisy, but this does not effect the sound. It seems to run a little hot, but I have had it on for hours with no problems with my step down converter.

If you want to strip it down it contains these rare chips – YM2164 4 operator IC, YM3012 DA converter and 2x D4464C-15L RAM.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Yamaha TF1 FM synthesizer sound module for TX rack. The module powers on, passes test 2 and 5 (all segments of the LED work and all buttons/lights work). I am unable to test midi or sound output as this is one of the last items I’m selling from my home studio. The module shows error 4, as expected….needs new battery. Pictures show the physical condition of the card…

This listing is for the TX1 Module only. The module I’m selling is on the right. I just used the rack to show the TX1 powered on with the lights and error code. The rack/power supply is NOT included.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
