I bought mine for AUD$180. Obviously "realistic" sounds are no good, but if thats all you're after with this, then you've missed the point. The TX can produce some amazing sounds - from good bass to allround digital craziness. Forget trying to emulate real instruments and experiment with this machine - I love it, if you can pick one up at a fair price, buy it.

I use Winsysex to program mine from my PC (there are other programs as well - SYMA, Easy TZ etc) and its as easy as falling of a log...or something.

For the price ($125) this thing rocks. I'd buy another. For me its probably worth more than I paid.

I used to have a Juno 106 but didn't really like it (It sounded a bit too "happy" or something).

I really like this box because it lets me create some insane and orignal textures and sounds. On a side note, If you make dub you will love being able to create subwoofer food with the sinewave subbasses. Programming this thing isn't all that hard if you have a manual and don't mind experimenting a bit. The "vibes" patch is real cool and I like the pads (not real warm, but nice), also the lately bass will be good for retro techno heads.

If you are an analog freak then go analog, if you want a neat cheap digital synth get a TX81z.

Can't (won't) tell you what I paid because I want another one as cheap! Have had it about a year now and use it more than any other synth I own, except maybe my Micromoog. Pick up one of Yamaha's DataFilers and you're in business.

I disagree with the crap drum rating. If you need something more than 303-909-808-101 stuff (and you really should you know) this MACHINE will be happy to grate your senses like so much cheese, dance boy!

I like it, I love it, I want some more of it.....Oh God! I do live in Louisville don't I.

I "picked" one of these up last night, and although I have not even used it yet, it has already changed the way I think about electronic music. It cost me circa 100$...that's a quarter of price of even a 101, and it sounds are as they say technotronic. the future is not analog, and it definitly is not analog sound modeling.

The future is what ever is cheap, at that moment, thus analog is in now, because three years ago it was cheap, BUY your casios, yamahas and cheap bad sounding MIDIverbs nowm because in two years, they be the biggest thing since knobs.

That's why I know I can never solve my problems,

I started playing the TX81z back in 88 when it was bundled with Yamaha's WX-7 wind controller. As there was little else on the market then to compare it with it seemed to do the job from a multi-timbrel standpoint; In a world where the &quot;synth of the month&quot; club seems to be the rage, its amazing to me that players still swear by this 4operator fm-digital machine (the DX7 had six operators) programming multilayered performance mode patches is worthwhile and the ability to temper scales and move the octave range on the instrument were unique and helpful traits as I recall but I moved on to later upgrades (Roland U220 and Yamaha VL70m) to get better quality (more warm and expressive/acoustic-emulative sounds) The best patch for WX on the TX81z was &quot;spitbone&quot; and Patchman Music's aftermarket patches for TX are a must.

My high marks are for ingenuity and swiss-army-knife range of utility for its time - not necessarily for sound.
