Wow- What A hot forum. I'm a bass player playing in Dinosaur 70's Monster metal riff band. I'm looking for my first Keyboard now. I just played (for 2 hours) with this thing in the store. I was gonna look for an Roland EG101 Groovesynth but the sales guy said check this thing out. My first reaction looking at it was ugly - toy etc. But She-it!! I don't care what it looks like I'm getting it. It is halve the price of the EG101. It does all the Proto prog metal tweaks I need and A whole lot more. I remeber I bought a Yamaha Portasound keyboard when I was I kid that had about 20 mini keys, 10 sounds (violin, piano, elec. piano,clarinet...), That thing cost over $200 bucks! It's astounding what you can get for the money now. <p> I do know why all these techno nerds get steammed though. It's because tools like this DJX expose this trend in music for what it really is. Let's face it you don't have to be a genuis to create this she-it. Lighten up and have some fun. I mastered playing the bass but I don't go around telling people how good I am (yes I'm aware of the irony but I'm on a roll now!) or how difficult it is to do what I do. I try to encourage people to create. And If it sounds good it doesn't matter where it came from. <p> The DJX is the most fun I've had since my college Electronic Music class ($ students and gigantic modular Moog)!

I got my DJX in October. Love the board. Good MIDI control. The pros are knocking it because it's a PSR keyboard, but it is the most powerful PSR ever made for the 200 clams I paid for it. Love the filter section. My biggest bitch is the lack of a backlit display and one of the worst acoustic piano samples I have ever heard. But add some reverb, a tiny bit of chorus, the EQ Disco effect, and layer it with the Bright Piano voice and it's usable. I didn't buy it for the techno and rap shit it was made for; I'm a prog rocker and we use the same types of sounds that the deejays use. There's nothing like crankin' the Res all the way up and doing the big filter sweeps while blamming down a four note chord. I wish the thing had a mod wheel, but I can't have everything can I. Yamaha should have added a backlight, mod wheel, at least channel aftertouch, and stereo sampling to the ORIGINAL DJX instead of that shitty DJXII. That puppy is what should be getting slammed all over this website instead of this one, because it sucks ass. I don't know what Yamaha was thinking when they did that one.

This board dosent have the best sounds on it BUT it rocks...there is no other keyboard out there like it. its portable and is loud on its own. I have gone in a profesional studio with it alredy and made some cool rap songs with it that will eventually land me a Record Deal. if you got bad things to say bout this keyboard then lets see you build one that is better. dont knock this board cuz it just isnt "YOUR THING".

This Keyboard Is Decent,More On The Guidelines Of A Novice Teaching Tool.I Would Not Reccommend Buying Unless You Just Need Some Sounds.Its Onboard Sequencer Is Terrible This Is One Feature That I Feel Is The Base Of A Good Keyboard,I Mean If You Could at Least Copy 1 Measure To The Next In Step Mode That Would Help.
