The 4OP to DX7 Conversion Project

4-op (and some 2-op) FM patches converted to be used in
6-op DX7 (and compatible) synths

The Yamaha DX7 is probably the most popular synth of all times. Also it is the synth for which the biggest amount of free and commercial patches have been created, and still new ones are created. These are now almost all available on the internet in the form of downloadable System Exclusive files. Literally thousands can be found, but patch-hungry DX7 owners are never satisfied!
As the creator of projects like DXconvert, The Reface DX Legacy Project, and - from the good old Atari ST days - YSEDITOR I have worked with 4-operator FM synths from the very beginning. And I frequently received the same question over and over again: Can patches from the 4-operator Yamaha FM synths (like the FB01, DX100, DX21, TX81Z, DX11, V50) be loaded in a DX7 or compatible 6-operator FM synth? The short answer is no. The long answer is: Yes, but they have to be converted using DXconvert first.
This website has been created to give you the easiest answer to that question! Powered by DXconvert I have converted a huge amount of patches from many 4-operator FM synths to DX7 and DX7II(FD) System Exclusive files. Simply click on the images and download whatever you need.
Using additional conversion software it should be possible to convert these DX7 SysEx files to Yamaha SY/TG77, SY99, and Yamaha Montage format. But I leave that to you, since I don't own any of these great but complex machines.

Enjoy and make some great music!
