Ahh,the DJX.I had some fond memories with this thing.This was my first keyboard.I bought it,by itself around March 1999.At that time I was looking for a cheap key-board with some decent sounds,and some sort of song making capabilitie.Well, I got just that,and a little more!I wasnt familiar with anything involved with midi.I didnt even know what an arppegiator was,and I didnt know to much about sampling.The DJX helped me learn about it.The patterns were cool,and to this day they are still cool.The sounds compared to my present synths are a bit limited,but at the time,I pushed the hell out of it to get the sound I wanted!I wanted the DJX to be more than it was!It encouraged me to really work with the sounds and effects.Alot of the "performances" I created with it impressed alot of people.I am glad it was my first synth.I learned to appreciate sound and sequencing.At the time it was just what I needed.I say its perfect for young,and I do mean YOUNG musicians who want a good, cheap key-board.The next thing you should buy is some sort of bulk-midi data filer,because I got tired of making,and erasing the 3 performances, every time I wanted to make one.I got a MDF3 for $199.99 used.Or hook it up to a computer.I never did that but im sure you can save it to the HD.I guess it can be used as a good controller too!I have much love for the Yamaha DJX.

I've heard a great deal of bashing on this keyboard and although I agree It's no Korg Triton, for the money- things don't get any better than the PSRD1-DJX. There are plenty of great rhythm patterns, some quite phat & tweakable via the analog style groove knob and if you use the dynamics setting on the assign knob or ribbon controller- you can tweak them even more. I like all 200+ voices, quite fun to tweak with the cutoff and resonance knobs. The DSP is decent/OK. But let me tell you what I did... I bought an Alesis AIRFX unit and ran the DJX through it....PURE HEAVEN. If you don't know what the AIRFX is go here- http://www.alesis.com/news/press/pr000922_airfx.html Anyway, the DJX alone IS enough for the Novice or Professional to compose decent dance oriented songs on, depending on your creativity, musical prowess, and patience. Hook an ALESIS AIRFX unit to it- pump it though an amp and BAAAM! Psychedelic-trip laced analog groove mayhem. The DJX can be used as a LIMITED MIDI controller, note I said "LIMITED". There's more the DJX can do but I haven't the time to mention. ALL IN ALL, I love it - especially for $150 off Ebay

Listen up! Every bad thing u hear about this machine is fucking bullshit. Guess why people are dissin it. Cuz they have no talent. If you actually have talent and dont just make good music cuz ur rich ass parents bought u good gear, u can make good techno on anything. Hell, u can pick up a 10 key keeyboard and make a phat melody if ur not just some dumb shit on drugs. Plus the drum and bass ob this thing are even better than MANY MANY expensive analogs. You People who diss it dont even own it.Basically, if u are one of the people i have just described, my heart goes out to u. Its just plain sad. For the money, i would be expectin a stupid little keyboard with patterns like waltz, so its a damn good deal.

Wow! What a keyboard. I almost class this thing as a synth since it certainly behaves like one! I bought mine off a friend who hardly used it so it was only 70 quid and in almost mint condition. I understand what other people say about the appearance of the instrument. It doesn't really look like a professional instrument, but definitely sounds like one. Some sounds that the DJX makes, my Korg could only dream of doing without a whole day programming one. I have not really found any sounds in the DJX that I would keep away from, even the piano sounds OK layered with some of my other synths. The miggest strength of this instrument is it's real time performance control - specially the filter section, and being able to adjust basic A/R settings makes it that little bit more versatile.

One other good thing about this instrument is that I guess it won't ever suffer 'sticky key syndrome' which my Korg has a bad case of at the moment.
