I have a TX802 and FM8, and so far I've only used the TX. Sometimes I play with FM8 at work on my laptop, but it's a totally different approach to programming than the TX. For example, there's no direct way to translate parameters on FM8 to the TX and vice versa. For example, if I want "algorithm 5" in FM8, I have to recreate it, or search for it, as the preset algorithms in FM8 aren't named/numbered corresponding to the DX algorithms. FM8 can read DX sysex files, but there's no way to create DX sysex from FM8, so it's a one way road.
Plus, as a child of the 80s, I like playing hands-on with a piece of gear from that area, as opposed to a modern software emulation.
You can load sysex *into* FM8 but you can't save FM8 sounds as sysex to go *from* FM8 to a DX.Altitude wrote:Did they change that? You used to be able to load sysex dx patches directly into the FM7
