I got this synth for 100 bucks, and within 20 minutes of getting it home I had a free JAVA based editor for it and was able to program it easily. The sounds are great. There are cool metallic gongs and bells, trashy synth-pop, nasty instruments emulations, and P-H-A-T bass, but best of all you can make the most bizarre noises with it which are simply not possible with a regular synth (like what you hear when you are on an AM radio and tune slowly between stations). If you are sick of the limits of your additive/subtractive synths, spend some pocket money on one of these and make some mayhem!

I got a tx7 from ebay for $50 and I love it. I went and bought another one for $80. I then ABed it against N.I. FM7 (using the same patches)and the tx sounded fatter and crisper. I love it but it does seem limited in what it will do best (shimering metal sounds). FM is the new age monster machine. I am still trying to program in some leads that sound good.

The reason I gave it a four was because when it sounds cheesy it really sounds super cheesy (probally because it has been over used in the past). It is hell of a machine for the money, but in the wrong hands it will sound incredibely outdated.

PS FM7 does things that I can't get the tx to do so beware.

The TX-7 is way cool to me. I bought it because I remember this asshole I used to write songs with years ago had one along with a KX-88 and the sounds were kick ass. I know a lot of people don't dig the FM sound but no one was bitching back in the 80's when it was THE sound. I loved the electric pianos, basses, strings, mallets, weird pads, all that shit. It's different man you know like wow or something. It's also cool when you midi it to analog synths. I'm also about to get a TX-802 which is even better. The one thing that you anti-synthesist,programmers,player hating dumb asses have to realize is variety is the spice of life!!!!! It would be great if yall didn't hate!

Talk about "more bang for your buck"! These go for under $100 on eBay on a regular basis. Now, I'm not the world's biggest fan of FM synthesis and "the DX sound" - I personally think that the 1980's were a sonic horror thanks to those same damn patches being overused all the time, especially the cringe-worthy "full tines" - but the DX series has its place, and there are literally THOUSANDS of patches available on the web. Even if 99% of those patches don't strike your fancy, that 1% still means you have more usable sounds than any synth in that price range!

It´s ugly, it´s old and has no reverb or chourus. But it's cheap and there are vast amounts of new sounds on the internet (most sounds crap but some sounds are realy good).
