Forget the 808, the DMX blows it away. This machine is amazing that snare drum is the greatest ever sampled in history. The clap and rimshot are great too. Every sound is PHATT and has CHARACTOR. Any kind of music can be made with this beauty from ROCK TO RAP. And it has been used by people like Prince, Run DMC & Madonna. They can't top it and never will. If you want to own an alltime classic drum machine with the greatest snaredrum sound of alltime, then go get a DMX nough said!! 10 out of 10

Very cool and very simple. Made in 1984 and still one of the most easy to use and intuitive drum machines ive ever used. Simplicity truly is beautiful.

Well, what can you say about the synth that was used for 90 percent of the soundtrack for "The Shining"? This thing is one of the most beautiful sounding synths ever created, and it is unparralelled at created lush, full, etherial pads and textures. I here that is was developed by none other Jan Hammer for Oberheim, back in the late seventies. I bought it with the insurance money I got after killing my wife, and it rocks!! Definatley pick one up if you want to have the biggest sounding synth in history, or if you have no friends, like me. I am invincible.

The DMX is a great unit, the sounds are great. We use it in the Studio and Stage for alot of our backing tracks, runnig the outs to the console for added effects. It also serves as a great practising machine for the wife and her Bass. We have several other newer uinits but always fall back to the DMX. Upgrading was easy, and they did make a Midi Version, the Midi in and outs we're located on the right side. P white offers voice card modifications and alot of other stuff for the DMX, he has just made the Factory Data Tape avalible for Download on the site he maintanes.

bang Bang BANG!. probably the most powerful drum machine ever, it eats speaker cones with its clicky sub-bass drum and the Toms wind you!, great for hard core etc, less realistic than the LINN but far more punch (in true Oberheim tradition). takes Linn EPROMS or blown via the Prommer. Curtis 3320 filters on some of the "cards" which are rife for modding with extra controls to do sweeps, self-osc etc. Easy to Program and styled to match the OB-Xa..

the DX was a cut-down version without the curtis filters but with the tuning controls outside (great) and often with MIDI also missing from the DMX. the DX was to match the OB8 but likewise lost something along the way sonically.
