Yamaha DX-7 IID FM keyboard synthesiser

 

Yamaha DX7 IID

The Mark II version of the Yamaha DX-7 offered more of the same (see Yamaha DX-7 Mk I) and adds enhanced MIDI support, stereo panning and fine tuning.

The Yamaha DX7 IID holds 64 voices in internal memory and an additional 64 voices in a ROM cartridge. Voices can be layered in dual mode providing very rich sounds or a combination of sounds that would be impossible on the original  Yamaha DX7. They can also be split, for a two voice multi-timbral capability.

The stereo outputs allow pans and chorus and a few other nice effects. There are two real time sliders, allowing control of user-programmable parameters in real time. Microtuning, as well as fractional tunings for eastern music etc. is possible.
