Heavy 26 kg, raw synthesizer with a great and orginal sound. I love mine DSS-1, but i never use the sampler, i use it for cool raw solo base-sounds. A killer!

the DSS-1 is huge & heavy, but still one of my favorites.

the one that guy had must have been broken....the filters are wonderful, and you get 12 and 24db modes. they're both useful.

it's basically a souped-up DW8000 with sampling. Special features include sync (which works OK, but how often do you see sync on a sampler? i did get half-decent sync leads out of it with just squarewaves....), DUAL independent delays.

they call the LFOs MGs (mod generators) which is probably why that guy got confused. pretty obvious when you use them though.

wish it had some multitimbrality & more outs, actually i wish the DSM-1 was REALLY a rackmount DSS1 (with at least the filters??) but oh well. I still think the dss-1 is a bargain for the cheap prices they are fetching nowadays. i love the raw sound of it. 12 bits isn't really a detriment, i've heard it said that this (at 12 bit) sounds better than an akai s1000 (at 16 bits).

I love mine and would pay 650 guilders (approx 300$) for it again if it broke down or got stolen. However,I still haven't located a manual so if someone can help me out it would be much appreciated.

Very cool lo fi instrument. Great for lofi breakbeat type stuff, and I love the synthesis ability. drawing waveforms is fun and exciting. Only had it for a few hours and already getting interesting sounds out of it. The short sample memory doesn't bother me, the point of sampling is chopping and rearranging to make new stuff, not to sample a whole song and add vocals to it. interface was pretty easy to pick up, but I wonder if anyone has the manual so I could get deep into this thing. If you find one of these snatch it up...

I have a love-hate relationship with this instrument. I love it for its dark and organic but still lush sound. The other way around i hate it for its teadious interface, slow diskdrive and not to mention its size!! I'll never get rid of it though, I know i would miss it right away...
