INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on your purchase of a Yamaha TX7 FM Expander! The Yamaha TX7
FM Expander is a MIDI controllable digital FM tone generator system which can dra-
matically expand the potential of the Yamaha DX7 Digital Programmable Algorithm
Synthesizer. It also functions with other Yamaha DX series synthesizers. The TX7 in-
corporates a 32 voice memory as well as 32 programmable function memories containing
the effect data for all 32 voices. There are also 32 function memories available primarily
for use with the Yamaha DX7 digital FM synthesizer. Voices and function parameters
can be transferred to and from other MIDI equipment via the MIDI interface. The TX7
also incorporates a cassette data interface that offers convenient mass storage and retrieval
of FM voices as well as functions.
IMPORTANT
This manual is organized in tutorial form. Therefore, in order to fully understand all aspects
of operating the TX7, we urge you to go through the manual and try out each operation
as it is described.

PRECAUTIONS
Avoid placing the TX7 in locations exposed to direct sunlight or high temperatures, excessively high or low
humidity, high dust concentrations, or vibration.
Be sure to connect the TX7 to an AC power supply that meets the power supply specifications listed on the
rear of the unit.
If there is any danger of lightning occurring nearby, remove the power plug from the wali socket in advance.
Be sure to make all connections properly, as described in the “CONNECTIONS” section below.
To avoid damaging your speakers and other playback equipment, turn off the power of all related equipment
before making connections.
Do not use excessive force in handling control switches and knobs.
To avoid broken cords and short circuits, be sure to unplug all connectors by grasping the respective plugs
—-— NOT the cords.
Remove the power plug from the AC mains socket if the unit is not to be used for an extended period of time.
Remove all plugs and connections if the unit is to be transported, to prevent damage to the cords and jacks.
Do not use solvents such as benzene or paint thinner to clean the unit. Do not use insecticides or other pressurized
spray products in proximity to the unit. Wipe off the exterior with soft cloth.
EFFECTS ON OTHER ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT
e Since this unit incorporates digital circuitry, simultaneous use of other equip-
ment such as TVs, radios, etc. in close proximity may cause noise and erroneous
operation. If this occurs, separate the affected units sufficiently to eliminate
the problem. it is also a good idea to use separate line filters on each piece
of equipment,
FOR USERS WHO WISH TO CONNECT THEIR TX7 TO THE DX7,
DX9, OR KX1:
e The TX7 will not operate properly when connected to KX1 and DX7 manu-
factured before the standardization of MIDI specification--AFTER TOUCH
will not operate. The serial numbers of the instruments concerned are:
DX7 serial numbers: 1001--24880,25125--26005
KX1 serial numbers: 1001--1105
In addition, if the TX7 is connected to DX7 or DX9 manufactured before the
specifications were changed, the DX7 or DX9 will not be able to receive the
contents of the DX function memory in the TX7. The serial numbers of the
Instruments concerned are:
DX7 serial numbers: 1001--24880, 25125--26005
DX9 serial numbers: 1001-2450
If you wish to connect your TX7 to one of the above-numbered instruments,
ask your dealer to replace the DX7, DX9, or KX1 system ROM.
A
BACKUP BATTERY
The TX7 incorporates a special lithium backup battery system so that data in
memory is returned even when power is switched OFF.
Do not attempt to replace the battery yourself. Refer this job to your dealer.
The backup battery should last for approximately 5 years. We recommend
replacing the battery early.
Ali data in the TX7 memory will be lost when the battery is changed. Be sure
to save data you wish to keep onto cassette tape prior to replacing battery.
When the battery voltage drops below 2, 3 volts, the TX7's LCD display will
read "CHANGE BATTERY” when the power is turned ON.

SYSTEM/MEMORY CONFIGURATION
The TX7 incorporates the same FM tone generation system found in Yamaha DX series Digital Programmable
Algorithm synthesizers and the Yamaha TX216 and TX816 tone generator systems. This is a 6-operator, 32-algorithm
FM system which is programmable via the DX series synthesizers having the corresponding tone generators — — The
DX7 and DX1, for exampie. Since the TX7 does not permit direct voice programming, we refer you to the doc-
umentation provided with the respective DX synthesizers for details on the FM tone generator system and pro-
gramming procedures. The Voices programmed in a DX synthesizer can be loaded into the TX7 via the MIDI interface,
however, and voices residing in the TX7 voice memory can be sent to a DX synthesizer. The TX7 does permit direct
programming of its function memories (described below) via the front panel. The TX7 also has a data cassette
interface which can be used to store and load the entire contents of the TX7 memory. The TX7 has 32 voice memories,
each of which contains the data for one complete 6-operator FM voice. Each of these voice memories also has
a function memory which contains the data for the function and control parameters of that voice. The programmable
function parameters are given in the following chart:

Thus, each TX7 voice can be independently programmed with its own real-time performance effects parameters
—— pitch wheel, modulation wheel, foot controller, after touch response, breath controller, etc. When a specific
voice is selected, its function parameters are automatically selected as well. These function parameters are directly
programmable via the TX7 panel controls, or they can be sent to the TX7 from a DX synthesizer, via the MIDI interface.
The TX7 also contains a second set of 32 function memories which is independent from that for the TX7 voice
memories. This second function memory set is intended to be used with the voice memories in the DX7 synthesizer.
The DX7 itself also has 32 voice memories, but only a single function memory. Thus, if a new voice is selected
which requires a different set of function parameters, these must be re-programmed via the DX7 panel controls.
The TX7 supplies the DX7 with a complete set of 32 function memories corresponding to each voice. In the case
of the DX9, which only has 20 voice memories, the TX7's first 20 (1 through 20) DX function memories apply,
and only those functions which the DX9 incorporates can be used. In the basic system connection configuration
given in the previous section, each time a new voice is selected on the DX synthesizer, the corresponding function
memory in the TX7 is called, and the parameters it contains are automatically sent to the synthesizer via the MIDI
interface.
The TX7 also has voice and function edit buffer memories, which contain the voice and function data in use.

The pre-programmed internal voices can be accessed immediately, so we'll use them to become familiar with the D
TX7 and its operating procedures. Later we'll find out how to load voice set À into the DX7 and voice set B into
the TX7 for combined use (voice sets A and B are designed primarily to be used together ——see the “CASSETTE
OPERATIONS” section, beginning on page 21).
Begin by turning the TX7 ON— —after connecting it to your DX7 as illustrated on the "CONNECTIONS" page. You
will be greeted by the <<YAMAHA TX7>> display which will appear on the LCD panel for a few seconds, and
then the LCD panel will read “CMB 1 ACC. PIANO”, indicating that voice number 1 (acoustic piano) is selected
in the combined mode —- —but we'll find out what that means a little later. First we'll need to know how to set the
TX7's QUTPUT and PHONES volume level. |

The four buttons on the TX7 panel under the PRESET VOLUME group label are
Volume Control / used to set volume level and program the TX7's preset volume function. First, try
Programming pressing and holding either of the PRESET VOLUME arrow buttons. The LCD
panel will show a black horizontal bar which will soon begin to shorten or lengthen
depending on which arrow button you have pressed. The volume bar will disappear
as soon as the arrow buttons are released. Simply, the longer the bar, the higher
the volume. Thus, the arrow buttons can be used to manually set any volume level
(the length of the bar at the instant the arrow button is released corresponds to
the volume set). Pressing either arrow button quickly, once, and then releasing it
causes the volume to be increased or decreased one increment in the specified
direction. The entire length of the bar corresponds to 80 increments (16 LCD
character x 5 segments per character}.
Volume control
ВН |
| The LOW and HIGH buttons in the PRESET VOLUME group correspond to two
: preset volume levels that you can program yourself. To set the LOW preset volume
| level, hold down the LOW button (the currently select volume level will be dis-
played) then, while still holding down the LOW button, use the arrow buttons to
set the desired LOW volume level, then release the LOW button. Now when you
press the LOW button, the volume level you just selected will automatically be set.
The same programming procedure applies to the HIGH button. The only catch is
| that the TX7 will NOT accept a LOW setting which is higher than the HIGH setting
| and vice-versa— —logical enough.
| At this point you might want to plug a pair of headphones into your TX7's PHONES
| jack, or monitor its output through your sound system while actually setting the
appropriate volume levels (turn off the sound output from the connected synthesizer
| for the moment). Play on the connected synthesizer's keyboard to generate some
sound for this purpose.
If you have just set the TX7 preset volume levels as described above, you will have
The Combined Voice already heard the Acoustic Piano voice (pre-programmed voice 1). You can now
Mode try out the remaining 31 voices by selecting them with the DATA group NO/-1
and YES/+1 buttons. Each press the YES/+1 button will increments the selected
voice number by one, and each press on the NO/-1 button will decrement the
selected voice number by one. Holding down either button will cause continuous
incrementing or decrementing in the specified direction. Notice that the voice
numbers on your DX7 synthesizer also changed to correspond with the voice you
selected on the TX7. (If this didn't happen, check again to make sure that the MIDI
IN and OUT terminals of the TX7 are properly connected to the corresponding
MIDI terminals on your synthesizer, as shown in the CONNECTIONS diagram on
page 5). Now try this: select any voice on your DX7 synthesizer——the corre-
spondingly numbered voice on the TX7 should have automatically been selected.
This is the COMBINED voice mode. Any voice you select on either the TX7 or your
DX7 synthesizer will cause the correspondingly numbered voice on the other to
be selected as well. Thus, you have 32 voice “combinations”. This means that by
storing appropriate voices in the appropriate memory locations you can combine,
for example, a cello voice and a string voice to get a really thick string sound, a
male chorus and a female chorus voice for a full chorus sound, or you can combine
completely unrelated voices to create unique new textures——all selectable by
=o pressing a single button.
) Ь In addition to calling the same voice number on the TX7, selecting a voice on your
DX7 synthesizer selects the corresponding DX function memory in the TX7, and
transfers the parameters it contains to the DX synthesizer's own function memory.
We'll find out more about the function memories later (“THE TX7 AND DX
FUNCTION MEMORIES” section, page 12).
Set up your sound system so you can monitor the output of both the TX7 and your
DX synthesizer simultaneously, and try out some of the combinations that “happen”
with the voices currently residing in the TX7 and DX7 synthesizer memories. We'll
find out how to lock the TX7's MASTER TUNE function to that of the DX7 later
(“MIDI OPERATIONS” section, “MIDI MODE Functions”, “D. ENTRY RCV. OFF",
page 25). For now, use the DX7 synthesizer's MASTER TUNE function to match
it to the pitch of the TX7. You can balance the levels of the TX7 and DX synthesizer
output either at the mixer used in your sound system, or by using the respective
volume contro! functions on the TX7 and the DX synthesizer. It is possible to control
the volume of the TX7 via the DX7 synthesizers DATA ENTRY control, but we'll
discover how to do that later (“MIDI OPERATIONS” section, “MIDI MODE
Functions”, “D. ENTRY VOL OFF”, page 25).

Of course, you won't always want to use combined voices. The TX7 also has an
The Individual Voice INDIVIDUAL voice mode that allows completely independent selection of the TX7
voices. To activate the INDIVIDUAL mode, press the PROGRAM CHANGE group
Mode INDIVIDUAL button. Note that the first section of the LCD display which originally
read “CMB”, for “COMBINED”, now reads “IND” for “INDIVIDUAL”. Also note
that you can now select any voice on either the TX7 or your synthesizer without
affecting the voice selected on the other. Even though voice selection is now in-
dependent, selecting a voice on the DX7 synthesizer does call out the function
parameters from the correspondingly numbered DX function memory in the TX7.
Once again, don't worry about the function memories just yet.

THE TX7 AND DX FUNCTION MEMORIES
To review, the TX7 has two sets of 32 function memories: one for the TX7's own voices, and one specifically for
Yamaha DX synthesizer voices. At this time, the Yamaha DX7 and DX9 Digital Programmable Algorithm Synthesizers
(the DX7 with 32 voices and the DX9 with 20) benefit most from the TX7's DX function memory expansion capability.
The top-line Yamaha DX1 Digital Programmable Algorithm Synthesizer already has dual voices generators and
independent function memories for each of its voices, but adding a TX7 to a DX1 gives you triple-voice performance
capability which, with a little imagination, will allow you to create some really impressive sounds. Of course, more
Yamaha DX synthesizers are on the way, and they, too, will benefit greatly by addition of the TX7 FM Expander.
The following is a list of all the function parameters that can be programmed in
Function Memory the TX7, and the corresponding display which will appear on the TX7's LCD display
Parameters when each function is selected for programming.

In the above displays, the cursor block (E) indicates the selected parameter.
Some of the above functions pertain to real-time effects contro! from the connected
DX synthesizer, while others are “direct” functions which take effect immediately
after being set. The real-time control functions are: pitch wheel, modulation wheel,
foot control, breath control and after touch. The direct functions are: master tune,
split low limit, split high limit, attenuation, mono-poly play mode, and portamento.
* For real time effect control from the DX synthesizer to function, the “CTL. CHNG.

Editing Function Me-
mory Parameters
Direct Functions
When you begin editing the function parameters, you will actually be editing the
parameters in a buffer memory which is independent from the 32 TX7 and 32 DX
function memories. When a TX7 voice is selected, its corresponding function
memory data is called into the TX7's function edit buffer, where it resides until a
new voice is selected. Thus you can actually hear the effect of function parameter
changes on the selected voice as you are editing. In order for the edited functions
to be recalled automatically the next time that voice is selected, they must then
be stored in the appropriate TX7 or DX function memory as described in the “Storing
TX7 & DX Function Parameters” section.
All the function parameters described above are accessed for editing by using the
FUNCTION button. Note that the FUNCTION button has two arrows: the one above
pointing to the right, and the one below pointing to the left. These arrows correspond
to the TX7's NORMAL and SHIFT modes, selected by the MODE button immediately
to the right of the FUNCTION button. In the NORMAL mode, each press on the
FUNCTION button scrolis forward through the function list, while in the SHIFT
mode each press on the FUNCTION button scrolis backwards through the function
list (for more details on using the SHIFT/NORMAL MODE button, see “More About
the Shift and Normal Modes”, on page 18).
Press the FUNCTION button a few times and note that the TX7 LCD displays
correspond to those given in the FUNCTION & DISPLAY list given above. At some
point press the MODE button, once, then try pressing the FUNCTION button again.
You will now move backwards through the function list. Press the MODE button
again to revert to forward scrolling. This makes it faster and easier to access specific
functions for editing.
The value or mode of the selected function is then set using the DATA NO/—-1
and YES/+1 buttons. The NO/-1 and YES/+1 buttons decrement and increment
the value of the selected function, respectively. Note that on displays which contain
a number of functions, the position of the blinking block cursor indicates the
currently selected function.
These of functions take effect immediately when they are set. That is, they are not
effects which can be controlled via the connected DX synthesizer’s various con-
trollers.
MASTER TUNE MASTER TUNE Of
This is the TX7's master tune function. All voices are affected simultaneously. The
displayed tuning range is from —64 to +63. Each increment corresponds to a 1.2
cent change in pitch. Thus, the entire tuning range is £75 cents. Setting MASTER
TUNE to O sets the TX7 to standard (A = 440 Hz) pitch.
The DATA NO/-1 and YES/+1 buttons are used to increment and decrement the
MASTER TUNE value. Hold the NO/-1 or YES/+1 button down for continuous
decrementing or incrementing in the specified direction.
PLAY MODE, POLY/MONO PLAY MODE = POLY
This function determines whether the TX7 voices are playable in the monophonic
or polyphonic mode. The NO/-1 and YES/+1 buttons are used to set the MONO
or POLY mode. MONO mode operation is last-note priority.
13
®
A
PORTAMENTO MODE PORTA El
Four portamento modes are available: two of which can be selected in the poly-
phonic play mode (see "PLAY MODE, POLY/MONOQ", above), and two of which
can be selected in the monophonic play mode.
*POLY PORTAMENTO Modes: When the TX7 is set to the POLY PLAY MODE,
either the RETAIN (RTN) or FOLLOW (FLW) portamento mode can be selected
using the NO/-1 and YES/+1 buttons.
in the RETAIN mode, any sustained notes will be held (retained) when a new note
is played. The pitch of the new note will be reached via a portamento slide from
the previously played notes. In the FOLLOW mode, all sustained notes will slide
to a subsequently played note. If the sustain is OFF, only the pitch of the last note
played will slide to the new note.
*MONO PORTAMENTO Modes: When the TX7 is set to the MONO PLAY MODE,
either the FINGERED (FGD) or FULL TIME (FUL) portamento mode can be selected
using the NO/-1 and YES/+1 buttons. In the FINGERED mode, the pitch of the
note will only slide to that of the subsequently played note if the first note played
is held down while the second note is played. If the first note played is released
before the second note is played there will be no portamento effect. in the FULL
TIME mode, portamento always occurs, whether the first note played has been
released or is held. Note that this function merely selects the portamento mode,
and the actual portamento (or glissando) effect must be turned on by setting an
appropriate PORTAMENTO TIME, as described below.
TN, PRT, 0
LS К)
This function determines whether a continuous portamento slide or stepped
(“glissando”) slide will be produced. The PORTAMENTO (PRT) and GLISSANDO
(GLS) modes are selected using the NO/-1 and YES/+1 buttons. If the GLS mode
Is selected, the pitch change from one note to another proceeds in semitone steps,
according to the PORTAMENTO TIME value.
PORTAMENTO TIME PORTA RTN, PRT, BM |
This function determines the speed of the portamento or glissando slide effect.
The available range is O to 99. At 0 no effect is produced. A setting of 99 produces
the longest portamento or glissando.
*A footswitch connected to the DX7 PORTAMENTO control jack can also be used
to turn the TX7 portamento function on and off.
LIMIT KEY LOWEST |SPER= c-2, H = G8]
With the LIMIT KEY LOWEST and LIMIT KEY HIGHEST functions it is possible
to designate a specific range of keys on the DX7 keyboard which will control the
TX7. Any key outside the key range designated will not produce any sound output
from the TX7.
LIMIT KEY LOWEST specifies the lowest DX7 key which will produce an output
from the TX7. The programmable range is from C-2 to G g
LIMIT KEY HIGHEST [SP L=C-2,0
Ш = Gs |
LIMIT KEY HIGHEST specifies the highest DX7 key which will produce an output
from the TX7. The programmable range is from C-2 to G 8.

ATTENUATION ATTENUATION 7|
This function sets the volume level of the corresponding voice. This is particularly
useful for balancing the levels of different voices. The attenuation range is from O
to 7, selected using the NO/-1 and YES/+1 buttons. A setting of 7 corresponds
to maximum volume (minimum attenuation), and a setting of О corresponds to
minimum volume {maximum attenuation).
This group of functions pertains to effects which are controlled via controllers built
Real-Time Control into or connected to the DX synthesizer being used with the TX7.
Functions Please note that all functions in this group, except the pitch wheel functions, have
exactly the same parameters which produce the same effects via the different
controllers. The parameters for MODULATION WHEEL, FOOT CONTROLLER. |
BREATH CONTROLLER and AFTER TOUCH are all the same: depth (0--15),
pitch (off or on), amplitude (off or on) and EG bias (off or on). For these four
controllers to function, however, the AMPLITUDE MODULATION SENSITIVITY
and PITCH MODULATION SENSITIVITY parameters in the voice data of the cor-
responding voice must be set to a value other than 0. The LFO modulation speed
setting is also integral with the actual voice data, and must be set as required for
each voice.
PITCH WHEEL RANGE | PW RNG = [i
—
STP =0|
This function permits the DX7 pitch wheel to control TX7 voices. The pitch wheel.
parameters can be programmed individually for each voice. The pitch wheel range
can be set from 0 to 12. At O the pitch wheel has no effect. Each increment increases
the pitch wheel range by one semitone. Thus, the pitch wheel range would be set
to 7 to achieve a full fifth (plus/ -minus one fifth from center position) range. A
setting of 12 would give a full octave pitch bend, up and down. The desired pitch
bend range is set using the NO/—1 and YES/+1 buttons.

PITCH WHEEL STEP [PW RNG = 0, STP = |
The pitch bend range setting, described above, permits continuous pitch bend over
the specified range. The step function, however, programs the pitch wheel to in-
crease and decrease pitch in steps, the size of which are determined by the PITCH
WHEEL STEP setting. Any STEP value higher than O causes the PITCH BEND
RANGE value to be automatically set to 12. The PITCH BEND STEP range is also
from O to 12. The following chart gives the number of steps and range for the various
STEP values:

The MODE NORMAL and SHIFT button is used to select the group of functions
accessible by certain buttons. Note that four of the TX7's control buttons have labels
below as well as above them. The groups of functions corresponding to the labels
above these buttons are accessed in the NORMAL mode, and the groups of functions
corresponding to the labels below the buttons are accessed in the SHIFT mode.
Specifically, in the NORMAL mode you can access the COMBINED and INDI-
VIDUAL voice PROGRAM CHANGE functions, and the TX PERF and DX FUNC
STORE functions. In the SHIFT mode you can access the CASSETTE SAVE/VERIFY
and LOAD/PROT functions, and the MIDI MODE and DUMP/INIT functions. All
these operations will be covered later. When the MODE button is pressed in any
mode, except while editing function parameters (in which case it simply reverses
the direction of scrolling through the function parameter list), the LCD display
will read either “= NORMAL MODE! =" or "= SHIFT MODE 1”, indicating the
mode you have just selected. You must then press the appropriate control
button——PROGRAM CHANGE COMBINED in the NORMAL mode, for
example——to access the desired functions.
The DX7's DATA ENTRY control can be used to set all TX7 function memory pa-
rameters except ON/OFF switch type parameters (e.g. MODULATION WHEEL
PITCH ON/OFF) and functions not available on the DX7 (e.g. ATTENUATION).
The procedure is as follows:
Set the TX7 to the SHIFT mode and press the MIDI MODE button until you get
the “"D.ENTRY RCV. ON” (or OFF) display. Turn this function ON by pressing the
YES/+1 button. Set the DX7 to “SYS INFO AVAIL” (this is done by activating the
DX7 FUNCTION mode, then pressing the number 8 memory button until the “SYS
INFO UNAVAIL” display appears, then pressing the YES/+1/ON button), then
select the function parameter to be programmed on the DX7. Setting the desired
value on the DX7's LCD display will automatically set the corresponding value in
the TX7 function edit buffer. This operation can be monitored on the TX7 display
by calling the appropriate function display on the TX7. ON/OFF functions must
be set using the TX7 NO/-1 and YES/+1 buttons.
The contents of the DX7 function memory can be sent to the TX7 function edit
buffer as follows: |
Set the DX7 to “SYS INFO AVAIL”, then while still in the DX7 FUNCTION mode,
press the DX7 function buttons corresponding to the function parameters you wish
to send to the TX7. Each function will be transmitted as its button is pressed, and
this can be confirmed on the TX7 by calling the appropriate TX7 function display.
18
Storing TX7 & DX
Function Parameters
Once you have gone through and programmed the required functions for a particular
voice, you will need to store the contents of the function edit buffer into the ap-
propriate function memory. You can store the programmed functions in any of the
32 TX7 function memories, or any of the 32 DX function memories.
The first step in storing function data is to turn the TX7's internal memory protect
OFF. This is accomplished by switching to the SHIFT mode and pressing the
LOAD/PROT button. This button accesses three different functions: memory protect
on/off (MEM. PROTECT ON), internal or external function memory load when
loading data from a cassette tape (LOAD FUNC? INT), and cassette load (LOAD
CASSETTE ?). For now we will be concerned only with the memory protect function.
Each press on the LOAD/PROT button cycles through the three available functions.
Select the “MEM. PROTECT ON” display. The memory protect is then turned ON
or OFF using the NO/-1 and YES/+1 buttons. Turn the memory protect OFF, then
press the MODE switch to return to the NORMAL mode. Now press either the
STORE TX PERF or DX FUNC button, depending on whether you want to store
the programmed functions into one of the TX7's function memories or one of the
DX function memories. if you select STORE TX PERF the display will respond
with “STR TX PERF. ? XX", where “XX” is the number of the currently selected
function memory. You can now activate the actual store operation for the displayed
TX function memory number by pressing the YES/+1 button. The display will read
“FINISHED 11” after a few seconds, indicating that the store operation has been
completed, and then will revert to the “STR TX PERF. ?XX” display. You can store
the programmed function data into any other memory location by selecting a dif-
ferent memory number using the STORE TX PERF button. Each press on the STORE
TX PERF button increments the displayed memory number by one.
Exactly the same process applies to storing the function data into any one of the
DX function memories. If you press the STORE DX FUNC button the display will
respond with “STR DX's FUNC ?XX”, where "XX" is the currently selected function
memory number. Any other DX function memory can be selected using the STORE
DX FUNC button, and the store operation is executed by pressing the YES/+1
button.
*Be sure to turn memory protect back ON after the store operation.

button. This operation sends the selected voice data to the TX7's voice buffer (the
Changes TX7 display will show the name of the selected DX voice). The DX voice can now
be monitored via the TX7 output while you set up the desired function parameters.
Then use the STORE DX FUNC button to store the programmed parameters in the
appropriate DX function memory, as described previously. The DX voice is only
temporarily stored in the TX7's voice buffer, and will be replaced by the original
TX7 voice when the corresponding TX7 voice number is next selected.
20
CASSETTE OPERATIONS
The TX7 has a built-in cassette data interface which can be used to store voice and function data for later loading
and use. Each time a SAVE or LOAD operation is executed, an entire set of 32 voice plus 32 function memories
is either saved to or loaded into the TX7 from the cassette tape. You have the option of selecting whether you
save/load the 32 TX7 voices plus 32 TX7 function memories, or the 32 TX7 voices plus 32 DX function memories.
Before attempting a save, verify or load operation, make sure the cassette recorder used is properly connected to
the TX7 as shown in the CONNECTIONS diagram on page 5.
Savel Verify
To save an entire voice plus function set, first set the TX7 to the SHIFT mode and
press the CASSETTE SAVE/ VERIFY button. The SAVE/VERIFY button accesses
four cassette functions: "SAVE NUMBER 0”, “SAVE FUNC ? INT", "SAVE TAPE
? TX=0", and “VERIFY CASSETTE ?”. These functions are called in the order given
above each time the SAVE/VERIFY button is pressed. They are used as follows.
“SAVE NUMBER O”
This function allows you to specify a file number from 0 to 127 for the voice/function
set to be saved. The specified number is recorded at the beginning of the data
recorded on the cassette, allowing specific files to be easily located on tapes
containing a number of files. The number of the first file encountered during a LOAD
operation is displayed on the TX7's LCD, allowing you to verify that the TX7 is
loading the desired file. Set the SAVE NUMBER using the NO/-1 and YES/+1
buttons, then press the SAVE/VERIFY button again to go on to the next sten
“SAVE FUNC ? INT”
This function lets you specify whether you want to save the TX7's function memory
data along with the TX7 voices, or the DX function memory data with the TX7 voices.
The options are “INT”, corresponding to the TX7 function memory set, and “EXT”
corresponding to the DX function memory set. The selection is made using the
NO/-1 and YES/+1 buttons. Once set, press the SAVE/VERIFY button again to
go on to the next step.
“SAVE TAPE ? TX=0"
You are now ready to execute the actual save operation. This display also gives
you the file number you set in the first step. When you are ready to begin saving,
start the cassette recorder in the record mode and press the YES/+1 button. The
TX7 display will respond with "NOW WORKING !!” indicating that the data is being
recorded onto the cassette tape. The save operation takes about 45 seconds, afte
which the display will read “FINISHED !11” for a few seconds and then will revert
to “SAVE TAPE?TX=0".
Press the SAVE/VERIFY button again to go on to the verify step.
“VERIFY CASSETTE?”
This function checks to see that the data has been correctly recorded on the cassette
by reading the cassette file just saved and comparing the data with that in the TX7
memory. Rewind the cassette recorder to the beginning of the saved file, press
the YES/+1 button, then start the cassette recorder in the play mode. The "NOW
WORKING !!” display will appear and the TX7 will read and verify the entire file.

”e
If no errors are encountered the “FINISHED 11!” display will appear for a few seconds
and then will revert to the “VERIFY CASSETTE ? “ display. If an error is found,
however, the display will read “TAPE ERROR". If this happens, try SAVEing the
data again. Depending on the cassette recorder you use, you may have to adjust
the cassette volume control and/or tone control to achieve reliable operation.
Cleaning and demagnetizing the cassette recorder heads might also help.
Pressing the LOAD/PROT button in the SHIFT mode calls the MEMORY PROTECT
ON/OFF function we have already seen, and the cassette “LOAD FUNC ? INT”
and "LOAD CASSETTE?” functions. Start the load procedure by calling the “LOAD
FUNC ? INT” (or “EXT”) display.
“LOAD FUNC ? INT”
This function lets you select whether the function memory data from the cassette
tape will be loaded into the TX7 function memories or the DX function memories.
Select either “INT”, corresponding to the TX7 function memories, or “EXT”, cor-
responding to the DX function memories using the NO/—1 and YES/+1 buttons.
Then press the LOAD/PROT button again to go on to the next step.
“LOAD CASSETTE ?~
You are now ready to execute the actual load operation. Wind the cassette tape
to the beginning of the file to be loded (This is easier if you have recorded voice
memos on the cassette tape, prior to each data file. You can monitor the tape sound
while searching for the desired file via the TX7's PHONES jack). Press the YES/ +1
button and start the cassette recorder in the play mode. The TX7 display will respond
with “NOW WORKING 1” while it is searching for the beginning of the file. When
the file is located the display will read “FOUND TX=XX", where “XX” is the file
number of the file being loaded. When the file has been loaded the TX7 display
wilt read “FINISHED!IN” for a few seconds and then will revert to the “LOAD
CASSETTE?” display.
The TX7 cassette interface can also be used to save or load all 32 DX7 voices plus
the 32 DX function memories in the TX7. To SAVE, the DX7 voice memory data
is transmitted to the TX7 voice memory via the MIDI interface, and then the SAVE
operation is carried out as described above. To LOAD, the cassette data is first loaded
into the TX7 memory, and then transmitted to the DX7 via the MIDI interface. In
either case the previous memory contents of the TX7 will be completely erased,
so make sure you have the TX7 memory data on cassette so it is not completely
lost.
To transfer the DX7 voices to the TX7 for saving, first turn the TX7 memory protect
function OFF. Then set the DX7 to "SYS INFO AVAIL", call the DX7 “MIDI
TRANSMIT?” function and press the DX7 YES button to begin the transmission.
The TX7 display will read “MIDI RECEIVED!” when the data from the DX7 has
been transferred to the TX7 voice memory. Then, simply SAVE the TX7 voice memory
plus DX function memory (“EXT”) as described above.
To load a voice set from cassette tape into the DX7, first load the cassette file into
the TX7 as described above. Then, to transmit the TX7 voice memory contents to
the DX7, turn the DX7 internal memory protect function OFF, set the DX7 to “SYS
INFO AVAIL", call the TX7 “MIDI TRANSMIT?” display by pressing the TX7 MIDI
DUMP/INIT button in the SHIFT mode, then press the TX7 YES/+1 button to begin
the transmission. The DX7 LCD display will read “MIDI RECEIVED” when the voices
have been transferred to the DX7 voice memory.
*Make sure you turn the DX7 internal memory protect function ON, and set “SYS
INFO UNAVAIL” after receiving voices from the TX7.

MIDI OPERATIONS
Although we have already used many of the MIDI functions available on the TX7 in the operations described in
the preceding sections of this manual, this section will provide a summary of the operation for each MIDI function.
MIDIMODE Functions
Pressing the MIDI MODE button in the SHIFT mode accesses the following
functions:
“D. ENTRY RCV. OFF”
When this function is ON, the TX7 is capable of receiving data via the DX synthesizer
DATA ENTRY control. This capability is used for editing TX7 function parameters
via the DX DATA ENTRY control. This function is also used to link the TX7 and
DX tuning functions: Set DATA ENTRY RECEIVE to ON, call the TX7 MASTER
TUNE function, and select the DX synthesizer MASTER TUNE function. Now the
DATA ENTRY control will tune the DX and TX7 in perfect synchronization.
Use the NO/-1 and YES/+1 buttons to turn DATA ENTRY RECEIVE ON or OFF.
Since this function and the DATA ENTRY VOLUME function cannot be active si-
multaneously, the latter will automatically be turned OFF when the former is turned
ON.
“MIDI RCV. CH. 1”
This function determines on which of the 16 available MIDI channels the TX7
will receive MIDI data (when the OMNI MODE, below, is OFF). The desired MIDI
channel number is set using the NO/—1 and yes/+1 buttons.
*The TX7 always transmits on MIDI channel 1. *The DX9, DX7, DX1, KX1, etc.
all transmit on MIDI channel 1.
“OMNI MODE OFF”
This is the OMNI MODE switch. When the OMNI MODE is OFF, MIDI reception
occurs only over the MIDI channel specified in the MIDI RECEIVE CHANNEL
function, above. When the OMNI MODE is ON, MIDI data is received on ali MIDI
channels simultaneously. NO/-1 and YES/+1 select the desired mode.
“D.EMTRY VOL OFF”
Turning this function ON makes it possible to control the TX7 volume via the DX
synthesizer DATA ENTRY control. Press YES/+1 to turn this function ON and
NO/—1 to turn it OFF. Since this function and "D.ENTRY RCV.ON" cannot be active
simultaneously, the latter will automatically be turned OFF when the former is turned
ON.
“CTL. CHNG. RCV. OFF”
When this function is ON, the TX7 is capable of receiving the following real-time
control data from the DX synthesizer:
*Modulation Wheel
*Breath Controller
*Foot Controller
*Portamento Time
25
*Sustain Switch
*Portamento Switch
*Volume
When this function is OFF, the above controls will have no effect even if the TX7
function parameters are set up to produce an effect.
The NO/-1 and YES/+1 buttons turn this function OFF and ON.
= Pressing the MIDI DUMP/INIT button in the SHIFT mode accesses the following |
MIDI DUMPIINIT functions:

To initialize a single voice/function memory, activate the VOICE INIT function
with the TX7 memory protect function ON. This initializes only the voice and function
edit buffers, which can then be reprogrammed or stored in the initialized state into
any of the TX7's voice/function memories. First check that MEMORY PROTECT
is ON, then call the "VOICE INIT?” display and press the YES/+1 button to execute
the initialize operation. The TX7 display will respond with "MEM. PROTECTED”,
but the voice and function edit buffers will be initialized.
To initialize the entire TX7 memory contents, activate the VOICE INIT function
with MEMORY PROTECT OFF. Remember that if you do this, any data previously
in the TX7 memory will be erased, so make sure you have a copy on cassette tape
if the TX7 contains voices and function data you wish to keep.

ABOUT MIDI
The MID! (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) system permits the transfer of various types of data between different
musical instruments and other music-related equipment. The MIDI data format conforms to a world-wide standard.
MIDI data can be broadiy divided into CHANNEL INFORMATION and SYSTEM INFORMATION.
CHANNEL
INFORMATION
SYSTEM
INFORMATION
This data group corresponds to actual performance events, and effectively permits
“remote control” of one instrument from another.
The TX7 permits only reception of channel information data, and will ignore certain
types of channel information data that it is not capable of utilizing.
Main CHANNEL INFORMATION DATA Parameters
*KEY ON/OFF
*KEY VELOCITY
*PROGR M CHANGE 9
*PITCH BENDER
*CONTROL CHANGE (modulation wheel, sustain switch, etc.)
*DATA ENTRY
Within the SYSTEM INFORMATION category, the TX7 receives SYSTEM EX-
CLUSIVE INFORMATION and SYSTEM REALTIME INFORMATION.
SYSTEM EXCLUSIVE INFORMATION
This corresponds to actual voice and function data, and differs from manufacturer
to manufacturer. The TX7 is capable of handling only YAMAHA standard SYSTEM
EXCLUSIVE INFORMATION data.
Main SYSTEM EXCLUSIVE INFORMATION Data
*1 VOICE BULK DATA
*32 VOICE BULK DATA
*1 PERFORMANCE BULK DATA
*64 PERFORMANCE BULK DATA
*PARAMETER CHANGE (Individual voice or function data; receive only)
When the DX7 is set to “SYS. INFO AVAIL”, transmission and reception of SYSTEM
EXCLUSIVE INFORMATION is possible.

means MIDI channel number and will mean the same when it appears in all
other byte numbers.
2-1. Reception Channel and Omni
The TX7 MIDI MODE selection function permits setting the OMNI reception mode
ON or OFF. When the OMNI mode is OFF, MIDI reception is enabled only on the
selected MID! channel (1 ~ 16). When the OMNI mode is ON, MIDI reception
is enabled on all channels.
