Sum up the Dx7?..........

Well1...a lot of people now a days...at first glance would not like it!, but i can tell you this synth is still very useful for "wierd" and ambient and other worldly sound design!.

it is very flat sounding as is but when "obviously2 an fx unit is added well like most synths of a certain age it is sonically improved.

y'see imagination is the key to all synths and drum machines, and as some a lady witth good hands on and theoretical experience i feel it is still useful. It matches my linndrum just lovely they kinda complement each other, there is a but! my power cord snapped at the very base....i have had to do a fix up job with insulating tape and now the volume switch crakles loudly and there is a glitch in the curving rate value it jumps so i must go and find a good servicer.

a synth not to be put down, give it a chance...you CAN jazz it up as it were!1 it really is useful and can be exciting.

I bought my DX7 used in 1985, and it has been my faithful travel mate ever since. First, I put it through a Boss chorus pedal and was happy with that; later (much later:), I got an FX box for it and with that, it still holds its own against many more modern boards and boxes, IMHO. In the meantime, I have acquired and parted with several synths, but the DX is still here. It appears to be more or less imperishable; it has never had any functional glitches in its 21 years, and guess what: It still runs on the original battery. Now if that isn't an engineering accomplishment...

Well, maybe I'm just overly attached to my DX7 like one other reviewer said, but the bottom line is the DX7 has been a key piece (no pun intended) of the better part of my musical life, and there's no sign that that will end any time soon.

(... knock on wood)

I would have to say that this is one of the best synths ever built. The build quality here is amazing...Yamaha really over-engineered this synth; the mk1's just don't break down, and the FM sounds are very warm, probably the best generated from any FM synth. Programming is not that simple, but with a little time and practice you can get almost any sound you want out of it. I have been playing the DX-7 for 17 years now, and it continues to be one of the main keyboards I use. Players looking to purchase a keyboard, this would be a quality piece for a good buy.

This thing is ancient. I don't know how I ended up with one. It's so heavy that I can't sell it. Only Aliens know how to program it. It's presets are cheesy. It's brown and the screen doesn't light up. The headphone output is busted. It has a NIN sticker on the bottom that won't come off.

And it doesn't give a f__k about any of this. 5/5.

I just got my dx7 for $235 off ebay, It is quite possibly one of the coolest synths out there. It reminds me of gumby.
