As recommended here:

It’s currently $29 with the Bass Odyssey expansion.


You beat me to it… I’ve just purchased it myself after seeing David’s recommendation!

Looks interesting! I’ve just read some reviews and it seems to be quite CPU demanding, what is your experience?

Here is another sale offer ($24 - but no additional soundpack):

How do you like it?

I’m still getting my head around the programming, although, it’s a lot less inscrutable than the original DX7 interface! I do like the fact there is a large number of modifiers available, as I do like to be able to introduce nuances in the sound via whichever controller I like. I also like that it is zero latency. DX7 V adds 32 samples of latency… it all adds up once you run through effects as well!

I’m finding I need to reorient my understanding of the operator algorithms as I am so used to the little “maps” that were printed on the top of the original DX7 (and the DX9 I used myself for as while) as opposed to the FM matrix in F’em.

At the moment, I’m trying to work out how I migrate some of my sounds from Arturia DX7 V to F’em, 'cos it will give me a lot more control where I want it and I’d like to be able to still use some of the iconic DX7 sounds if there’s way to get them into F’em.
