DX7 Editor


The DX7 is Yamahas first and most iconic FM synthesizer, covering a wide sonic territory that works equally well in 80s-oriented music and modern productions. Now you can tweak this timeless classic from within Ableton with this Max for Live device:

  • Control Yamaha DX7TX7 and compatible synths like Volca FM

  • Sysex connection between your DAW and synth to read and write patches, and to tweak all parameters from the editor in realtime

  • Dynamic visualization of all algorithms, waveforms and envelope shapes

  • Copy and paste mode to easily sync operator settings and envelopes between several operators

  • Function settings and routing for external controllers like mod wheel and foot and breath controllers

  • Initialize all parameters to start from scratch

  • Save and load patches as single files to and from your computer and enjoy unlimited patch storage on your hard drive


Editor Demo

What You'll Get

The download contains the following items, packaged in a zip file:

  • DX7 Editor.axmd

  • Info sheet with setup instructions and troubleshooting

  • Folder with example patches


Please note that you need a DX7, TX7 or any other synth that is compatible with the DX7 sysex data like the Volca FM. This editor is meant to control those synths – it won't make any sound by itself. Instructions how to connect the editor with your synth and some example patches are included in the download.

The editor works with every Ableton version since Live 10 (when Ableton integrated Sysex support). It requires Max for Live, which is included with Live Suite.
