TX81Z : The advanced 4-OP FM Synth

Apart from the CX5M and CX5M-II I also own a TX81Z. Why? Do you ask – I just say: “LatelyBass”!

In more words, this TX81z is a 4-Operator FM synth like the CX5M but you have the ability to change the operator waveforms itself. This allows you to make more complex waveforms with just one operator.

Matt Gregory has a very informative webpage for the TX81Z which also explains a lot about FM-Synthesis and programming; also a good read for the CX5M users: http://the-all.org/tx81z/ Anyone who also owns the TX81Z by the way is more or less obliged to have his TX81Z-editor.

VOG Files

So a while ago I got a request from Paul Deco if I could put the .vog soundfiles back online. The CX5M shares the instrument-data structure with the FB-01 so they could be handy for FB-01 users too. I’ve zipped them here

Now, In the previous version of this site there was also a .VOG decoder. I’ve been working on that too so you can see what sounds are inside the .VOG files (typically 48 instruments per file). I have not made the file uploader for that decoder in this new CX5M site (a bit worried about security since the contact form is already spammed now and then) but you can browse through some instruments. You can click on the links below and see how the sound parameters are setup. WARNING: It’s a load of numeric stuff if you’re not into FM programming…
