Ugly and powerful. First of all, grab yourself some kind of editor/bank manager. I use YSEditor (yep, it's for Atari, but there are decent emulators for PC and Mac out there). Second - grab some free patches (it's basically a TX81Z in a weird gray wrapping) - and you'll have even the "Lately Bass" patch :-D. Third - learn to program this goddamn thing and you'll want to get the second one on eBay. In "multi" mode layer 3 instances of one sound (pads do best), one left, detuned -5, one in the middle, one right, detuned +5 and you'll get wet. Play factory E.Guitar patch 2 octaves lower than it should be played - you've got Les Claypool's slap bass Primus is famous of. Learn FM basics (it's not difficult, believe me) and program your own sounds. A killer. A must have.

Well this is the TX81z with sequencer and effects plus can be edit on the box , but always need a editor like TX81z to get to full edit functions . an editor for TX81z will work all the patches for are compatible . joao

I love this little, weird looking instrument. It has some great FM sounds, with digital effects, that are unlike the sampled waveform or anlog modeling synths out there. This is the same synth that's in the B200, YS100, YS200, and maybe the DS55.

I got this module because I had too many analog sounding synths. Initially without any editing software, soundwise it can become restrictive in a way that your not really getting the most out of FM synthesis. With editing software available now in the 21st century (thanks guys) its a great little unit to own. I got FM Farm which basically takes two FM sounds and mutates them into 50 different patches! So I've got loads of FM sounds out of this cheap unit. The Whiz suggested one preset, sounds like something vangelis would use. I don't know which one he was thinking of but the Preset Sandbell tweeked sounds like it could have been used in Bladerunner.
