madtheory is a user here he's got a page and some samples for the TX16 but there isn't a lot of love for the old girl, also might want to check out www.yamahaforums.co.uk there's some info there on the TX16

The official ram from Yamaha is called Yamaha EMM15, they are custom and contain 1,5 mb. < (Maybe PA-Docoder made clones, but don’t hang me up on it)

The price is about 50 € (on Ebay), but there are some alternatives if you are good at DIY, check links below:

Yeah, madtheory is super horny about the TX16W :) so you should talk to him.

The memory issue is a bit tricky, but the USB drive is quite easy. I'd suggest an HxC flashed Gotek. That's how I upgraded my TX16W and it works quite well.

I also have a hardcopy of the TX16W service manual if anyone needs some info out of it. Someday maybe I'll actually scan in the whole thing.

Edit: Ha ha, just saw the date of OP... bumped by God damn robo-posts with their spammy sigs... grrrr... :evil: :pissed:

It has a lot of pages and I don't have time at the moment to scan the entire thing properly. I want to do it someday, but the best I can offer right now is to help you troubleshoot whatever specific problem you may have, or try to answer a specific technical question.
