      A LEGEND Reborn

      In 1983, the Yamaha DX7 changed everything. It had a sleek new look, a new type of synthesis, and a whole new sound: pristine, precise… digital.

      The sound of the DX7 was everywhere for much of the 80s, and it is a big part of countless hit songs.

      The thing is, a DX7 isn’t all that inspiring by itself: it’s mono and has no built-in effects. Yet almost 40 years later, it remains extremely expressive and capable of some incredible sounds.

      But the real magic happens when you layer multiple DX7s together, which was the concept behind the TX rack system: it had up to 8 modules (each equivalent to a DX7) that could create some truly massive sounds when layered together.

      Those sounds are like nothing else to this day, and DX Dreams captures that magic to create a whole new experience for today’s players and sound designers.

      Features

      - Over 30 GB of meticulously sampled content
      - Stunning production-ready sounds sampled through the hit-making hardware of the DX era
      - Built from the ground up for uncompromising performance in a live setting
      - Virtual “TX Rack” featuring realtime control over major sound shaping aspects that weren’t available on the original hardware
      - Layered Combination Patches
      - Famous “Icons” Patches
      - A new TouchOSC controller file

       

      Iconic Radio-Ready Sounds

      DX Dreams starts with meticulously deep-sampled sounds recorded in stereo (when applicable) from as many as eleven DX7s all playing at once, and all recorded through iconic 80s hardware: 1073-style preamps, various analog tape models, Roland Dimension D chorus, and AMS or Lexicon reverbs. 
      So, while other virtual DX instruments give you a single DX7, a single DX Dreams patch can give you big, layered, fully produced sounds that would be impossible without stacks of real DX synths processed through iconic hardware that helped make some of the biggest hits in music history.
      DX Dreams gives you access to those sounds the way they were meant to be heard, but it can also can form the foundation of new, forward-thinking sounds nobody has heard yet. For the first time since the 80s, you can now play the sounds that defined a generation, as we heard them.

       

      What Sets DX Dreams Apart?

      Unlike every other virtual DX7 on the market - all of which model a single, mono DX7 - DX Dreams is based on the TX rack paradigm, but with many advantages over the hardware. In DX Dreams, each of 8 modules has its own volume, tuning, solo and mute, effects sends, and chorus controls that emulate the famous Roland Dimension D, which was another big part of many famous 80s synth sounds.

      All of this right from the front panel in Performance mode - you don’t need to go “under the hood” to edit these controls.

      And as always with a Backstage Pass release, it comes with a custom TouchOSC interface for hands-on live performance control via iPad:
