Yamaha TX81Z FM Synthesizer Demo #3 Alpha Wave

This demo is a multi-track rendition using only the Yamaha TX81Z FM synthesizer as a sound source. All custom FM patches including drums, no factory presets. Some of the sounds are available on my blog, new ones will be available soon. Effects used: Big Sky, Timefactor, and RE-20 Space Echo.

EDIT: for some reason I can't reply to posts. For the question about loading tx81z sounds into other yamaha synths, patcharena.com posted "Each (tx81z) bank holds 32 voices...DX27, DX27S & DX100 users can load these but only the 1st 24 voices of a bank are accessible."


  1. Hey !

    First and foremost : this is one the first Times I "follow" someone because of his synth demos. You have some taste for textures and all this, and this is quite rare apparently !
    It makes me want to dig some FM hardware. Can the patches for this machine be dumped into à dx27 or dx100 ? I heard they are almost the same machine..

    Thanks for your answer, and keep up the good work !!

    Much love


  2. Whyyyy don't you answer me, fm synth god. If I sinned you should let me knoweth...
