The TX7 came in, and not surprisingly it sounds exactly like the DX7, so that's great. The Yamaha TX7 is an FM Expander, and it's meant to be used in conjunction with the DX7 - although it can serve as a standalone FM box and does not need the DX7. I'm treating it as its own instrument, not attached to the DX7 how it's supposed to be. So essentially I now have two DX7s in the house, so yay.
One of the interesting things the TX7+DX7 combo offers is a joint Factory Soundbank - that is, you're supposed to load a specific bank of sounds into the DX7, and then a different bank of sounds into the TX7, and then you're supposed to play them together. You have the flexibility of deciding how you want to layer them. You can pan each hard L/R or you can leave them as is. I've set them up according to how I would use them, so some are panned, some are chorused, some are dry.
There are a total of 32 patch combinations, and I've recreated all 32 in Dexed, which you can download here:

I'd appreciate not reposting the link anywhere as this is mainly for the people participating in this thread.
You'll also need the free OSL Chorus which you can download here: https://oblivionsoundlab.com/product/osl-chorus/
. This is my favorite chorus and I won't use anything else and is a worthy addition to your rack.
