I finally after being dissapointed in the the live stage sound hooked up my old dr synth module i bought in 1996 and it out performed the sdx. why can't the live sounds of digital pianos interpret thru a pa ? this sound module does. doug

The Dr. Sytnth is an amazing module. It has full 16 channels of MIDI for the hacking musician.

Before the Hammond simulator MIDI modules came out, I used the organ sounds thru a Leslie 147 for an awesum (yet unajustable) Hammond Sound. It still works in a pinch for organ.

I use the thing for MIDI playback. Typmani rolls are incredible (build them using Step input, then randomize/humanize a couple of points). I am disappointed that the industry has not built improved models attthe economy that this represents.

I think using several of these is a good idea. It beats paying thousands for the lastest gizmo. You hit the polyphony limit using all 16 tracks. I agree banjo is a killer. I use the drum kits for building loops (cymbals, bongos/congas, TAMBORINE).

I bought one of these when they were new. The reason. . . they were budget versions of the Roland Sound Canvas, which was the dog's 'you know what' for a GM module at the time.

While you could get everything out of the front end of an SC you were very limited with the DS330. As a stand alone module it was therefore very limited . . . however (as others now know) with a computer editor/sequencer you could get in behind the interface and could do a heck of a lot more with it.

I'm just getting back into writing music / sequencing after a few years out and will be resurrecting the DS330 for sure!

this is a very cool module. especially for the price. i got mine for 50 bucks at a garage sale. the synth sounds are great especially the sine wave. the only problems i have with it are: you cannot use the portamento in multi mode, and sometimes certain effects, like portamento will reset while using cubase. it's no big deal, really, if you turn the effects on right before you track anything, then it will be fine. i use it more than i do my korg x5. (not that they are very comparible.)
