The orginal price of the DX-7 (new) was $2000. I just bought a second hand one for $600 in excellent condition. Still one of the best features of the DX-7 is that you can move the voices around to the different presets, and use them where YOU want to. I agree that the ability to program and create your own sounds is an incredible feature. I just wish it had the functions of reverb and chorus that so many machines have these days.

I had a DX7 (in combination with a U220) once, but I sold it. I shouldn't have done that. It was way too hard to program, but the sound was great. If I could lay my hands on one for a few bucks I'd buy it again right away.

Model: DX-7s Reknowned Elec. Piano sounds, great organs, I love it.

Not multi-timberal, but an excellent comping synth.

It's extremely hard to program, but once you figure it out, you can do ANYTHING. A CLASSIC synth.

An exellent, totally programable synth with some amazing sounds and tremendous

potential. A lot has been said on how difficult it is to program. Well, let me

clarify. It is not difficult to program, I had it for only a few days and it takes

me only 15-20 minutes to program a sound. What is difficult, is to predict what

it is going to sound like based on the algorithm you choose. Extremely unintuitive.

However every time you program it, by experimentation you always get some good usefull

sounds.Even if you cant program it there are thousands of exellent sounds online,and

at the very least its an exellent controller. Yes the lcd is tiny, and the buttons are

horrible. However I can't imagine programing it with hundreds of knobs. Also it is built

like a tank, virtually indestructable. Mine is an early 83 model and will probably last

another 14 years.

This classic fm synth was great for it's time, and still is. I was lucky enough to get a mint one for $300 and it has been great. In my first few weeks of getting it, I have had great acoustic patches going ... everything from killer pipe organs to strange metallic bass hits, it's all there. It was little hard to program at first since I was used to programming analog synths but it was a blast, but it was very noisy and non multitimberal. Though I had to run it through fx (eq..i got SOME crazy harmonics on it)...(reverb...too dry for many of the patches). With little effort I was able to make some nice piano sounds and Rhodes style patches. Also it could only hold 32 patches at a time, this wasn't a big deal, but at the time switching rom carts wasn't exactly what i had in mind. But it also has portamento and a few other things making it great for basically anything.
