” The Yamaha TX816 Synth Module. 8 DX7s in a single chasis. Fully programmable. 16 voices per module. Great shape cosmetically, all buttons present and working properly. Was the best synth module in the game at one time. Is still a monster synth. All the great FM sounds, great e.pianos, strings and synth sounds. Rarely do you see a full racks these days. Have had this since the 80s, it’s time to replace the internal batteries, do that and you got one of of the best synthesizers ever made, is about a $300. dollar job. Hasn’t been used in the past few years, no longer have equipment to verify it’s functions so sold ‘as is’. Worked perfectly when last used but I know the internal batteries do need to be replaced, other than that; perfect. No reserve, thanks for looking” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“You are bidding on a used Yamaha TX816 MIDI Rack Synthesizer w/ 8x TF1 Cards installed, which makes this sucker FULLY LOADED!

I am not the original owner. I have determined that this unit is fully functional, to the best of my ability. You can see in the picture where the unit is powered that all LEDs work. I have also tested MIDI In and Audio Out on each channel and have determined they are fully functional.

This unit does not come with rack ears. However, I do have a nice 2U rack stand which fits the unit perfectly. See pictures. This stand is not listed on eBay and not a part of this auction, please PM me if interested.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Hey everyone . Im am 80s Electronic Music from YouTube. You may have heard my TX816 online . I have decided to sell her because I am moving and can no longer have such a large studio. She is almost mint with the the exception of a few scratches on top from laying my rack mixer on top. I also took the liberty to replace all of the module batteries and reload the factory sysex data. Also included are the xlr to 1/4 adapters. Six of them. This thing sounds insane with all 8 channels. Each module creates a different part of the preset and when they all come together , it’s sheer power. You’ll be in love with this synth. The dx7 is popular again along with FM so I predict this 816 will double in price within. Year or two. Get her now ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This is in great shape. Never left my smokeless bedroom studio. Just a few scratches from mounting and unmounting from the rack. The second slot needs a battery replacement. When powered up it shows error code #4 which means low battery. It works just fine when sounds are loaded into it but when the power is turned off it will lose its programs. The slots use a common button type battery that is readily available. The originals are soldered to the board but can be replaced with a battery holder. If you Google “Changing the battery on a TX816″ you will find directions on how to do this. There is also a service manual available online. Other than this issue the unit is in perfect working order.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Yamaha TX816 with 8 tf1 modules I tested and I’m able to get sound from a few of the modules but static or no sound from others when I press the keys on the controller. I’m not sure if its the internal battery or what, this unit has been setting unused for quite some time could be a easy fix or simple battery swap, This is vintage but in great condition I will ship no later then one business day after confirmed purchase.

“Up for auction is my original Yamaha TX-816 with 8 working modules in wonderful condition. The unit works beautifully and still sounds great. It is literally a wall of sound, and still classic after all these years! I personally tested all of the functions on all eight modules in both individual and common mode and everything tests out. I reloaded the eight modules with the original Yamaha patch banks exactly as it came from the factory. I am including all of the original manuals. Also included in the box is a modern patch librarian and FM sound editor with thousands of additional preset patches, organized by bank name and patch name, and a MIDI cable.

This unit ships with tons of nostalgia. I loaded up the original DX7 cartridge patches from 1983 yesterday afternoon and enjoyed playing and listening to the exact original sounds from tons of classic hits from the 1980’s. Anybody who remembers “Do they know it’s Christmas” by Band Aid will be happy to find the original patch, TUB BELLS #12 from DX7 cartridge 1A on the included disk.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

WORKING CONDITION – Very Good: Module #3 has a battery error, the old battery (solder-on type) has leaked on the module board and chassis below, but the module still passed audio and MIDI tests functioning normal (without store function reliant on the battery). The rest of the modules and chassis tested working very well otherwise. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

This comes from the 1980s collection of a super famous pop band that had 3 Billboard Hot 100 #1 hits between 1985 and 1987. Yes, three of them (even Jackson didn’t have 3 in that period). You will never in your life have a chance to get one of these from an artist with more 80s success than that.

These need no introduction and if you are looking at this you probably know what this is and what it can do. I admittedly am no expert with these but I have heard what they can do in person during sessions and its amazing. Nothing else quite like it and the sound is super thick and punchy.

This unit comes from the historic Studio East / Arthur Smith Recording Studios and was tested recently with 7 of 8 modules working. I am not sure what is wrong with the one that isn’t working but it could be a battery, not sure. The unit has been sitting for some years unused in Studio Easts production room.

The cosmetic condition is old with scratches and scrapes on the top and bottom. The face is clean and all the buttons seem to work like they should. The rack ears work and the power cable is in good condition.

These basically give you multiple DX-7s in one unit that you route through any 8 channel mixer and layer any way you want. The processing power is gigantic and the sounds are legendary. You can do things with this unit like no other synthesizer ever made. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

816 “8 DX7 synths in 1! 8 TF1 modules. Here’s a great vintage unit up for sale. Really hard to part with but alas, I must. This has been a great unit for some killer monster analog sounds! You know who’s used these before so you know how amazing it is. It’s been kept well in a non-smoking studio. All 8 modules work very well. Just one has need of a new battery. It plays fine, it just won’t save for that module only. Batteries for these are very cheap.

It’s been gently used in a non-smoking studio environment.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

TF1, TX-816, Yamaha @ 01 July 2016, Comments Off on Yamaha TX816

816 “The TX816 is the big boss of all FM synths. It is a rack with eight TF1 modules which are Yamaha DX7 synthesizers condensed down to a single circuit board. Designed for use with an external controller and patch editor, the TX816 allows you to easily play eight DX7s.

There are 3 levels of Yamaha TX816 expertise. Level 1: how to use the TX816, Level 2: which software claims to emulate it well, and Level 3 why none of them does, but can sound great layered to it. If you are reading this listing, I guess you made your way to Level 3 already, congratulations. It’s nice to be between professionals.

Although one can use the TX816 like it’s eight seperate DX7s, mixing and panning each module together to layer the sounds into one monsterous 128 voice and 48 operator DX powerhouse is where it truly shines. The TX816 has been used by Kitaro, Chick Corea, Michael Jackson, Europe, and Scritti Politti between others. In the early eighties the unit cost $5,000. Each module also features an indepednent audio out (XLR) and MIDI I/O for a total of eight audio outputs and MIDI I/O’s. It also has one global MIDI in/out port with 8-part multitimbrality, but no common stereo or mix output.

The unit I’m selling works, I just played all 8 modules separately to verify. It has two minor issues: the last module flashes a low battery error though it still holds patches (I’m out of TX816 batteries) and the back of the enclosure has a small ding on the left. It doesn’t show if the TX816 is mounted in a closed rack. So instead of the $1600 what some people listed their mint unit on eBay, you can have mine for $999 with the one memory error and case ding.

The machine comes with the 2 original paper manuals, and I am also including a PDF of the service manual on disc.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

I originally purchased this new as a TX-416 in 1986 and added 4 additional TF-1 modules a few years ago. It has spent it’s entire life in my non-smoking, pet free studio.
