Proud to present this DX7 panel as a result of successful co-operation with forum member pascalc, who has done the Lua programming! This panel is mainly based on the TX7 panel, but due to some differences between the two devices a special DX7 panel was created.
Some notes on this panel.
- make sure you have made the right MIDI IN and MIDI OUT connections before you start working with the panel. Both connections are required to interact with the synthesizer;
- before you can send a bank or an individual voice to the DX7 you need to disable the memory protection on the device. You can achieve this by clicking on the button ‘disable memory protect’;
- to change the name of a voice, double click on the name displayed in the LCD-screen (below right) of the panel;
- if you like this panel so much you wonder how to express your gratitude, please donate to CTRLR.org so Roman Kubiak (aka atom) can finally buy a proper Macintosh computer ;-)!

Great Stuff (y) It works with some failors with my DX7. I get a Data Error in the DX7 display when i get data from the DX into the panel but i can edit the DX7. The Operator on/off function doesn`t work, and only two Opertors in the panel are on, all others are off….strange. You are on the way i think ….gratz 🙂
I’ll have a look at it and will get back to you.
I just tested the panel with my DX7 and both the issues you mentioned work fine on my setup.
Can you describe a bit more detailed and send what sysex that is being sent?
ill test with a tx802 soon
If you still have issues with this panel you might have a try with the TX7 panel. We noticed during the development of these panels that the MIDI implementation of the two devices differ quite a bit.
Will this work with a Grey Matter E! board installed?…
The only advise I can give you is just try it. We never tested the software with this board.
looks really good. will it work with VolcaFM??
I’m pretty sure it won’t. The Volca FM is from Korg AFAIK and it will only work if they use EXACTLY the same MIDI specs. Sorry!
I plan to try this with my DX7 but it has a Grey Matter E! Board and I would like to extend the MIDI implementation to support this. Anyone had any experience or success with this combination?
Does it matter if its a Yamaha DX7 FD II? Will this panel still work? Considering buying this synth and curious as to wether the bi-timbral and layering additions effect how this panel will function.
