Yamaha TX216

MIDI rack

Yamaha TX216 FM rack synthesizer

1984 (Dec.)
Initially sold for ¥278,000

For those who felt that the TX816 was perhaps out of their reach, Yamaha offered the TX216, an FM Tone Generator System with exactly the same features as the TX816, but featuring two TF1 tone modules, built into the same 19" rack-mountable MIDI frame, instead of eight. At any time, single modules can be added to build up the capability of the system.
