Digital Suburban Dexed v0.9.6 x64 VST3 AU WiN MAC [FREE] screenshot
FREE | 21 June 2022 | 12 MB
Dexed is a multi platform, multi format plugin synth that is closely modeled on the Yamaha DX7. Under the hood it uses music-synthesizer-for-android for the synth engine.

The goal of this project is to be a tool/companion for the original DX7. Sound engine with 'float' value parameters, different waveform à la TX81z would be great but anything that goes beyond the DX7 should and will be a fork of this project. This is to keep the compatibility with the original machine.

Dexed is licensed on the GPL v3.

• Multi platform (OS X, Windows or Linux) and multi format (VST, AU, LV2).
• The sound engine music-synthesizer-for-android is closely modeled on the original DX7 characteristics.
• 144 DAW automatable DX7 parameters available from one single panel.
• Fully supports DX7 input and output Sysex messages; including controller change. This means that you can use this with a native DX7/TX7 as a patch editor and SysEx manager.
• Each operator have a realtime VU meter to know which one is active.
• Can load/save any DX7/TX7 SysEx programs. It is also possible to save a single program into a different SysEx file.

Version 0.9.6:
• Apple Silicon M1 builds
• Fix VST3 automation issues
• Fix to apply UI scaling only when applicable
• Fix hang notes on program changes

Besides being a must to program DX7 series FM synths it is also an excellent emulator of the same.
Reminds me a lot of the old Atari DX-Droid, the best DX7 editor ever, until this DEXED showed up, that is.

An excellent work by several teams of programmers who have made some of the best VSTis ever.
In theory, theory and practice are the same.
In practice, they're not.

Anyone know where to get a pack of sysex banks for this?


and a zillion banks on the peeplink here

You can download Dexed Cartridges file [] from their website and it contains thousands of chosen and sorted patches. I have some other sysex banks but don't use them because these are more than enough for me. This is really well programmed synth and I love the immediacy of the GUI! No fuss.

The only thing I can criticise is the filter which is not very usable [I wish it had a HPF mode for filtering out low frequencies and a filter envelope], but I use Virus C FX, TAL-Filter, Surge FX, or whatever after it if I need a good filter anyway. For those who need Linux version, just go to their website, click on "view on Github" then click "Releases" and there you go, you get all three releases for dl.

Best DX7 version ever. I had an original DX7 keyboard and was able to A/B it with Dexed. They sound exactly alike. Not close - exact. SWEET. The keyboard was great but after doing that I sold the keyboard and use Dexed now when I need DX7 sounds.

As for where to get patches, just google DX7 patches there's a million out there to download for free. If you're unfamiliar, sysex banks are appropriate here for getting patches.

In case anybody isn't aware, Native Instruments FM8 imports old Yamaha DX library's.

I understand that Dexed is more accurate to original, it can even swap with a hardware Yamaha. But which also might make it harder to wrangle for the less technical. I eventually found that just importing .sys sounds into FM8 was easier to navigate through a library of them.

Is there a secret to loading the provided cartridges/patches?
The SnyprezFM patches load perfectly, but the internal patches just have weird characters for names and bring an error when loaded. Thanks

I haven't used this newest version but didn't have this issue with older versions. If the errant characters are an issue you could use a great app called R-Name to batch rename the files to something more appropriate.

the emulation works well, but the GUI is a nightmare, i wanted to tweak some parameters from factory sounds, but really uninspiring sadly, atleast for me ...

anyway thanks to the dev!
If you want to supply something, you can. PM is open for that.

You can skin it by getting the source code from github and reading the included theme info.
...or by hex editing the png images in the binary. I did a quick blue skin which now looks like this:

the problem are the small knobs, they are so hard to turn with precision, guess its the turning curve, which needs adjusting to have a feel of precision. But well there is the source code on github, which one could tweak ...

other than that a very good emulation.

I tried to sort this by using midi learn but on the envelopes, it only retains the last button learned ...

If you click the "PARM" button, you can zoom the GUI to 150%. Everything looks a little fuzzy then but at least it's more usable.
