The samples are 8 bit and stored on 8kbyte EPROMS.

Excellent sequencer, lovely lo-fi grungey sounds, if it's anything like my DMX it will also have analogue low-pass filters (Curtis) on the Kick and Tom circuits.

Hilariously outdated by today's standards, the Oberheim DX is still a very capable drum machine. It uses 12-bit (I think?) ROM chips for it's drum sounds which are user-changeable, and it does the whole clock in/out thing for sync'ing with sequencers and boards of its day....The sound quality depends on the ROM's you have, but overall, the factory ones are good. If you've ever heard Prince's "Purple Rain" album then you know EXACTLY what a stock DX sounds like. This is an excellent used buy if you can get one for $100 or less....the construction of this box is similar to an 80's Volvo...clumsy controls but built like a tank.

The Oberheim DX is a nifty little bastard. I have owned mine since 1989! I will never get 'rid of it'. Its waaayy too cool! I also owned a sequential circuits but when the time came to get rid of one, i chose the drumtraks right off the bat! The DX sounds really cool and is Waaaay easy to program and operate live! I use it as part of 'The System' comprising the DSX and the OB-8! WWWaaaaayyyy ccoooolll!!!!!!
