Description
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 one filter/type per voice. On the rear along with a regular stereo output, there are 8 individual outputs. Samples are stored on 720kB 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.

A free software emulation "Cyclone" was released in 2013 by Sonic Charge (developed by the people behind the original Typhoon OS).
