The Yamaha TX16W is a rack mount sampler sound module made by Yamaha.

The TX16W has 12-bit sound with up to 50 kHz mono, and 33 kHz stereo sampling. Its filter is digital, allowing 17 different types, with 1 per voice. On the rear along with a regular stereo output, there are 8 individual outputs. Samples are stored on 720k 3.5" floppy disks. It shipped with 1.5MB of RAM but is expandable up to 6MB. The TX16W uses a Motorola 68000 processor.

The operating system is loaded from disk. Unsatisfied with the original Yamaha operating system, NuEdge Development created the Typhoon 2000 OS for the TX16W, offering a different user interface, faster load time, less RAM usage, and more features, such as new filters.

Artists who use (or have used) the TX16W include:

  • Tarantula Hawk (2nd Album)
  • Face Control
  • b'Hai Death
