RAV4 Acoustics problem, even with Boston Acoustics SX60. - Toyota RAV4 Forums
One thing that always bugged though was not just the crappy sound quality of the factory system. Had it been just crappy, it wouldn't bother me that much. I drove cars with crappier sound, but my RAV4 was causing a totally unique and weird sensation that I was having in my ears whenever I cranked up the volume even to the middle. It felt like.... like the pressure you're getting when you're diving. Or, like the pressure you're getting when the airplane descends. My ears even hurt though the music was nowhere near loud.
I've never experienced anything like that in any other vehicle.

The factory head unit has bass and treble boost at all settings above -5. If you have the bass and treble at 0 then it's putting 10dB of boost in at 60Hz and 7kHz. Have you tried adjusting the eq to see if that changes anything?

Taming the boomy bass - Page 6 - Toyota RAV4 Forums
don't know if you guys saw my first and second posts here http://rav4world.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=18958, but the boomy bass comes from the stock head unit. The bass EQ boosts at 70Hz and treble EQ boosts at 7kHz. EQ settings of -5 are 0dB boost and +5 is 20dB boost. If you have the stock headunit at 0, that's still 10dB boost. It was hard for me to believe my ears at first, before I put my meter on it, when I kept turning the EQ's down lower and lower but still thought it sounded boomy.

I have 2 sets of plots on there before and after I replaced my headunit. The plot of the stock HU set on -5 is nearly identical to the aftermarket HU set flat.

Yamaha TX802 - opinions? - Gearslutz Pro Audio Community
In hardware, I suggest DX200 or FS1R

I've owned just about every Yahama FM synth made since 1983, and I absolutely love them all for different reasons. In my experience:

DX7/TX7 = noisy, but warmer and pleasingly rougher-sounding than those that came after

DX7 MK2 = a lot less noisy, more piercing and able to manipulate tones in real time. Can also do unison or stack two tones (but polyphony is cut in half to 8 notes)

TX802 = 8 DX7 MK2 synthesizers, each with 2 notes of polyphony. Each synth has a little bit of noise, so when you stack all 8 synths together to get 16 notes of polyphony, you wind up with more noise than a DX7 MK2 but less than a MK1. Sounds huge, though, and has some novel tricks up its sleeve.

SY77/99 = a different kettle of fish. Beautiful sounds but the FM engine is different and can't accurately sound like the earlier models. In a mix no one could tell. This one's for sound designers; it is the modular of FM synths.

DX200 = It's a non-noisy DX7s with a filter, effects, and a sequencer for recording knob tweaks. Programming it and sending DX7 patches to it requires abandonware that's available in a Yahoo group. Editor is PC-friendly but runs on a Mac with virtual machine such as Parallels or the free VM VirtualBox

FS1R = The most expensive synth of the bunch. Loads old DX7 patches but is more complex. Not as complex as the SY77/99 but damn close. No experience with this one.

Reface DX = Only 4 operators but does things that no other Yamaha FM has ever done. Not as warm as even a DX7 MK2, but when used with a sequencer or knob box, it can do some crazy gymnastics. Don't have this one yet.

So that's my experience. Others may disagree.

I have to ask: Why are you looking even though you have a DX7? One thing some people overlook: You have to use modulation effects to bring out all the shimmering features of an FM synth. I'm sure you've used modulated delays, chorus/flange, reverbs to add depth and texture. What's missing for you?

Structures from Silence - recording methods - Gearslutz Pro Audio Community
gear of the day. I borrowed a second OB8, loaded my same sounds and added this to the final session. In the control room I set up the main OB8 with the DSX and its sequence I was living with for a few months. Along its side was the second OB8. The 30 min piece was then created in one pass as I was interacting with the main OB8-DSX, breathing life into the sound mantra, shaping with the micro subtle changes I spoke of and also adding some distant harmonies on the second OB8. The Lexicon 224, the holy grail at the time was the only processing.
The piece was recorded just as you hear it, direct to 2 track - 30 ips Studer machine.

What's your opinion on Modular Software? - Gearslutz Pro Audio Community
need knobs, sliders and more knobs, with zero latency and epic sound. Along with the interface the big piece here is the sound. My addiction to sound is fed through the visceral connection to hardware instruments and the impact and resolution of the pure sonics that comes from these tools, vintage classics or current synths and modular's.
