The Yamaha DX7 is a phase modulation based (marketed as frequency modulation) digital synthesizer
manufactured by the Yamaha Corporation from 1983 to 1986. It was the first commercially successful
digital synthesizer. Its distinctive sound can be heard on many recordings, especially pop music from
the 1980s. The DX7 was the moderately priced model of the DX series of PM (FM) keyboard
synthesisers that included thelarger and more elaborate DX1 and DX5; the feature-reduced
DX9; and the smaller and not directly compatible DX100, DX11,and DX21. Over 200,000 of
the original DX7 were made, and it remains one of the best-selling synthesizers of all time.
