Don't know about Lately Bass but you can reproduce the DX100's Solid Bass on the DX7 patch using the data below:

if you want to hear what the dx11 is truly capable of, this guy really pushes it to its limits

I would agree with you and I don't think there is any patch done on a DX100/DX11/TX81z or any other 4op FM synth that the DX7 could not do. And in my years of 4op FM programming, I tried duplicating DX7 patches on my DX21 and TX81z, it could not be done (and I've never in 25 years heard of anyone being able to do so).

Well, I'm not sure. I once owned a TX81Z (about 20 years ago!) and I seem to remember that the operators weren't limited to a simple sine wave as they are on the DX7. There were some complex waves you could select instead, which would make certain patches difficult to emulate.

While the TX81z had alternate waves that were SLIGHTLY more complex than a sine wave, it's not like they were a full sawtooth wave or anything. So those "slightly more complex" waves can be pretty much emulated by increasing modulator values.

Are we supposed to be impressed with that video?? Quite frankly, I've heard better sounds on a $19.95 child's keyboard at Walmart.

:lol: After watching that video, I will never say "I suck at playing" again! :mrgreen:

As for the DX11, guess it does a pretty good imitation of the "Super Mario Bros." patch. ;)
Two VCO: thanks to the push rods, one can choose several forms of waves at the same time!
