The Yamaha V2 is the same as the Yamaha DX11. The V2 was the name for the Japan only release, however all export models were named the DX11. The V2 was released in 1988, four years after the DX7 hit the market. The V2 synthesis and sound quality is classic DX-style FM synthesis using 4-operators per voice. It offers 8-part multitimbrality, whereas older DX synths were monotimbral. The V2/DX11 is essentially a keyboard version of Yamaha's first true multitimbral FM synthesiser, the TX81Z rack module.
The V2's multitimbral features allowed you to spread various sound patches across different areas or "zones" of the keyboard. It also allowed for complex ensemble performances using external sequencers or while playing live using "Performance" patches. Also added were some Quick Edit functions so you don't have to delve into the complexity of FM synthesis to make a few simple tweaks. These quick edits affect the tone, envelope attack and release times.
