After two decades, the dx-7 still remains my favorite synth.I obviously own other synths that sound better,yet I just can't sell it away.I use my dx-7 for Rhodes-kind-of sounds,and I can assure you that there is no other machine that yields the REAL DX Rhodes sound.Even the modern gear.One of the few drawbacks is the lack of effects,I would have appreciated even a single reverb.However,the FM synthesis allows users to get thousands of different sounds from a unique sinus waveform.As far as I know,besides the DX/TX series,there is still no other synth that can do the same,even nowadays...

Recently Purchased a DX-7 for $250(gd deal)! I currently own All Soft synths(reality, reaktor,rebirth,VazMod,dreamstation,Tassman,Retro As-1,etc.) Used the Dx to MIDI-worked perfect for PRO-TOOLS and Vegas/ACID PRO. LOVE it and the programming is easy as shit-experimental/metallic/ambient/Techno/Industrial/. Its my first real kybd synth and probably Last-built like a tank-pretty responsive. Colour the sound with a good effects unit-and your good to go!

The whole oscillator/algorithm setup is extremely unpredictable, making programming really tedious when you want a specific sound, but does give you the power to make anything.... if you know how.

When you do create a sound, having 6 different oscillators is nice. You have control over the volume each oscillator plays at, if it responds to key velocity, etc... (its always fun to have one really noisy oscillator only activated during a hard key strike).

this thing makes great wierd-ass, space alien, freakish noises ....which is pretty much why i got it... its also very cheap nowadays.... im currently trying to make a whiny cat noise (if you have a cat you know its the funniest thing on earth) ...as you could probably tell, im on lsd right now. have fun dx'n!

I bought my DX as a B-Stock from the 1986 NAMM show for $2000 and as soon as I plugged it in I was in Heaven!!!

That was 13 years ago and it still thrills me.

First of all, I love Yamaha keyboards! The action is just right. I can fly up and down this thing like nobody's business. On my Roland, I can strike a note 3 times before the key returns to it's original position. If I'm going to play a solo, it gets played on the DX.

I cut my teeth on this synth. I love the FM sound! What can I say? I'm a child of the '80s.

The only drawback is programming. Unless you're a nuclear physicist, forget it. Go to the web and download one of the thousands of sounds available there.

Don't overlook the cool breath controller. If you're like me and use both hands and the sustain pedal almost constantly, the BC is a Godsend. It is programmable with the same parameters as the mod wheel and pedal, so you can at last kick in a little vibe or EG bias while moving from 1 huge chord to another! Just don't forget it'e there.

This is still (yes, still) my primary board. The FM Rhodes sounds cannot be beat! ANd why even try? This is the original!

a truelly classic synth. can make some of the most amazing sounds, especially metalic noises. This thing could do anything if you know how to program it....and if u don't, then just get some of the thousands of patches of f the web
