The Yamaha TX81Z is well known for its famous Lately Bass patch, but it can do so much more! Tweak your favorite 4-OP FM synth from within Ableton with this Max for Live device:
Control Yamaha TX81Z hardware synth
Sysex connection between your DAW and synth to read and write patches, and to tweak all parameters from the editor in realtime
Visualization of all algorithms, waveforms and envelope shapes
Copy and paste mode to easily sync operator settings and envelopes between several operators
Routing for external controllers like mod wheel, foot and breath controller, and sustain pedal
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
What You'll Get
The download contains the following items, packaged in a zip file:
Info sheet with setup instructions and troubleshooting
Folder with example patches
Please note that you need a TX81Z, as this editor is meant to control that synth – 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.
