this drummachine is wicked bad! for hiphop, rock, or electro/retro stuff this guy takes the cake. make sure the one you are getting has midi built in, i spent a long time trying to find a converter from clock sync- this is NOT fun. garfield electronics makes a minidoc and a clock-midi converter for those of you who need one...anyway, the sounds on the dx rock, and if you get an oberheim prommer you can burn your own sounds...what a deal! the kick is nice and punchy and the clap is perfect. the dx has tuning knobs on the back for tuning each drum and man this is fun to play with. like i say, if you can find one with midi 200 is a great price- its easy to write on and play with. i love it!

The later DX's with factory-fitted MIDI were known as the "DXa". I think these still only had a "DX" logo on the top of the case though.

One of the all time great drum machines. A must for any Techno/House production studio. From the classic claps to the Heart Attack Kick - the sounds are all that. The sequencer is intensive enough for Live or studio if you don;t already have another sequencer to use. Built like a rock it might e big with only a few sounds but lasts better than most. Don't pay the price for a Roland TR808, TR909 or Linn - this ones a better value. BTW towards the end of the run Oberheim shipped the DX with MIDI installed. If you find one with factory MIDI you a likely to pay 200+ but it is work the time and headache of not having it.

Oberheim also made an expansion for the DX called the "Stretch". It added four more channels, one with a four slot Ziff for use with the Ride/Bell set of chips. The Stretch also came with a set of chips that updated the OS and it added Midi clock out. The standard clock sync of 96 pulses is simultaneously available so you can sync the DSX sequencer, OBXa or OB-8 and other midi stuff at the same time.
