The Dx7 is is the first digital synth I have owned other than a CZ 1000. All of my other gear is analog synths so I might be trying to compare apples and oranges. The sound quality is excellent especially the pianos. It is also great at all kind of metallic sounds or that 80,s pop sound, Ambient Pads, Acoustic and Electric Bass, spaceships, sound effects, noise and good organ. Strings in my opinion are a little synthetic. It could also be usefull as a techno machine with a little delay or effects. It is built like a tank. I bought mine used for $150 and it looks like it has had a very colorfull life. Programing.... Thats different story. It is not like the analogs that I am used to. One slider knob?? I'am used to at least 15 :) Usually I just play with the parameters until I get the result I want. More often than not I end up with something that was not even close to what I was looking for but still very usefull. If you understand the concept of FM synthesis I suppose programming it would be a breeze.

I don't think that I would ever sell it because of it's versitility in making all kinds of music. I think part of the Dx7's popularity is due to this very reason.

Doing techno with a DX7s. Bass sounds are thick as a post, cut through any mix with strength and power. GET ONE! They are going quite cheap in the UK now (Jan 2000). Try to get a MkII or DX7s rather than the original

I bought a DX7IIFD in '87 and upgraded it with E! in '90. This thing has been lugged all around the country, dropped (in the case), even fried by 220 volts when a stoned stage hand spaced out and blew up the bands equipment. Thirteen years later, it sits unscathed in mint condition in my home studio. I still progam it occasionally, and am constantly surprised when something fresh comes out of it. I own analog boards, and samplers and know their strengths and weaknesses. The DX7 still has it's own little space no other board can touch. Although limited, it's still very useful. Even in 2000, this 80's wonder machine is the most rewarding board to program!

I find MP Chead's comments that the DX7 is entirly overated, veryinteresting. If your out there MP, I.d love to hear what you would choose from 1983-1986 in place of the DX7?

Pure cheese... Not to mention, entirely overrated.
