Get the classic sounds of Yamaha's renowned DX-7 synthesizer. The PLG150-DX features the same 6-operator, 16-note polyphonic FM tone generation system that took the synthesizer industry by storm in the '80s.

This outstanding plug-in board is capable of producing beautiful, ultra expressive electric pianos, punchy basses, dynamic leads and unusual sound effectssounds for which FM synthesis is famous. PCM-based synthesizers cannot come close to faithfully reproducing the rich dynamics of FM. The PLG150-DX is compatible with voice data of Yamaha DX- and TX-series synthesizers such as the DX-7, DX-7II, TX-816 and TX-802, which means you'll have access to literally thousands of DX patches available on the Internet and elsewhere. This plug-in board is a must-have for electronic musicians and composers of contemporary music.

PLG150 Professional Series Plug-in Boards
Yamaha's Modular Synthesis Plug-in System is a revolutionary expansion system that adds a COMPLETE SYNTHESIZER or SOUND PROCESSING ENGINE to any Modular-Synthesis-Plug-in- compatible synthesizer. Yamaha's amazing plug-in board lineup, which includes the PLG150 Professional Series not only gives you new sounds, but also new synthesis architecture, new effects processors, extra polyphony and more. It's like placing an additional synthesizer or digital effects processor inside your existing keyboard but at a fraction of the cost!
Once a plug-in board is installed, you can directly access any of its voices and edit them from the front panel of the host synthesizer. You can also use a PC-based software editor (bundled with each plug-in board) to edit any of the voices in detail. Many voice parameters can be controlled by a MIDI sequencer, which enables you to record realtime edits, such as filter cutoff frequency and effect levels, for automated voice transformation during playback.

With the Modular Synthesis Plug-in System, you can customize your Yamaha synthesizer with the exact synthesis or processing power you need...whenever you need it.

Note: Bundled editors are software plug-ins developed for XGworks sequencing software (Windows 95/98).
Offering new synthesis possibilities ranging from physical modeling to FM synthesis, these high-quality plug-in boards cater to specific synthesizer needs of professional users. Each plug-in board within the PLG150 Series comes bundled with special "Plug-in Voice" data that makes full use of the exclusive features found on the S80, S30, CS6x and CS6R synthesizers.
