Yamaha DX9

The DX9 is a 4-operator 8-algorithm FM synthesizer issued as a less expensive alternative to the DX7 which was released at about the same time. It has no filters of any kind and relies entirely on FM sound generation.

This synthesizer could load patches from cassette. It has separate pitch and modulation wheels and has a breath controller input.

It was released before the second generation of 4-operator FM synthesizers, the DX21, DX27, and DX100 and is not patch-compatible with any of them.
