For someone (like me) who is just beginning to learn about/experiment with editing sounds, this synth is fun and enlightening at the same time. The various parameters capable of being edited are conveniently displayed right on the synth; this means that you can easily access any parameter you would like to edit (no knobs, but is about as easy having knobs) and hear exactly what happens as that parameter is edited. Several of the preset sounds are really good, I think, and it does not take much editing to stumble (as I, a novice, do) across something that sounds really cool. Then, since it easy to see what you have edited, it is easy to apply those specific alterations to other sounds. I also recommend the Access Virus for anyone starting out with sound editing (manual explains the basics well); however, it (new) costs about four to five times as much as a used DW-8000. Only negative of the DW-8000, at least on my unit, is the "clunky", loud keyboard. x/5 rating is a "for the price paid rating"...

I think this keyboard is like so totally cool man! I like to just turn it on and just watcch the nubers on it glow man! And the those crazy crazy sounds it makes man! MAN!!! Those sounds are like from some other WORLD man! I play with mine all the time man. I like take it with me everywhere in case I might need it man. I really like to play with that joystick way over there to the left man. I dig the black keys a whole lot more than the white keys though man. They just look and sound soooo much cooler man. Anyway man this keyboard like is more greater than like the PRESIDENT man!

The bully of my rig. At any given time, I've got 6-10 other boards, but this is the one that I keep coming back to. It's far more analog than digital, so it does lovely strings, super organs, and really piercing leads and great sweeps. The horns aren't anything to scream about, but I've yet to meet the perfect synth. The keys are probably its weakest point-they're quite light, although they're not exceptionally cheap feeling. Bottom line: I have to go out of my way to NOT use this synth, so my Rolands, SCI's, and other Korgs don't feel left out.

I forgot to include my E-mail address for the factory patch sheet. I have a manual of the DW8000 I would be happy to fax to those who need a copy.

The DW-8000's synthesis is not really digital: only the oscillators are digital.

The filters are digitally controlled analogue.

There existed some third-party hardware updates to make the DW-8000 multitimbral

(2 Sounds, MIDI-Channels and/ or Keyboard-Zones). The one I used (I dont

remember the manufacterer) also provided MIDI local off and some more LFO wave-

forms (random and S&amp;H).
