The DX7 E! expansion is known for being very hard to use. The SuperMAX is easier, but still there are so many features that it can be hard to remember them all, … and not everyone needs them. So I’m working on yet another lost 80’s expansion, hereby dubbed “DX7 4x Expansion”.
- 128 patches all directly accessible using standard MIDI Patch Changes.
- Velocity offset to cure the DX7 velocity shortcoming.
- A bit more MIDI flexibility and keyboard split.
And you don’t need to remember any of it since it’s all adjusted by one simple panel button. Another nice thing is that it also contains the complete latest DX7 v1.8 factory firmware, including the built-in self test. So maybe not all the bells and whistles of a doctorate level SuperMAX+ or E!, but as I said, a DX7 expansion “for the rest of us”.
