Well I've had the DJX for about 2 years too...I had little faith in software synthesis until I discovered Audiomulch. But then I returned to the DJX as stomper and AM began to be a bit too arbitrary. Yes that's what the DJX is good for. It has the right sounds and feel to steer you in the right direction. Most of the people who read this review are probably the right age to have fond memories of the 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System. Remember how beautiful the music was? A noise generator, 2 square waves, a triangle wave and a terrible PCM player was all the oscillators. And it sounded gorgeous. Perhaps much of the charm was from the fact that the composers had to make do with just those sounds. And that's what the DJX encourages you to do...work with what you got. When you can do that on something like the DJX, it translates easier over to more advanced equipment. Now one of my favorite was to write songs is to fire up the sampler and hook it up to... anything really. Vinyl usually. Once it's in there, right away you can start banging the keys and twisting knobs and it's so much easier than anything else. It's like a casio SK-1 with added bonuses. And there are some decent preset sounds too... It's just great for inspirational purposes. Long live the DJX. I'm never going to sell mine.

I've had my djx for almost 2 years now and i still have it incorporated into my setup. It is limiting yes, but once i figured out how to save "patches" so to speak, i was a much happier user. As a previous review stated, yes it does help bring out the creative person in you b/c it is limiting but youcan still explore a lot and do odd things to it. Take that and run it through external effects and presto! While you asve up for that nice nord or maybe something bigger and better, buy on e of these to hold you over, ive made some amazing stuff with it

Its not wonderful but for as cheap as you can get em...they beat the heck out of anything else in its field...meaing screw radio shack and casio (unless its a cz) annd buy this thing!

As a more experienced synthesist and musician, and 2 years older than i was when i wrote my first reviews for the djx, i've learned alot. I had one when it first came out, and whether i knew it or not, my best ideas came from and took shape on the DJX. Since then, ive gone thru every VA or ROMpler there is, and my creativity lacks. I sometimes wonder if many many GREAT synths can spoil your creativity, because it did for me. I just bought a DJX again for $189...I dont remember getting that good a deal on a board ever...All i know is that I've had more bangin tunrd, and far better ideas from a single DJX and a few softsynths, than the setup i had a year ago consisting of a Virus, An1x, XP-30, Audity 2k..etc...True, it may lack the *originality* VA's and editable synths have..but lemme tell you..its way cooler to hear an awesome track on a DJX, than to hear an average track on an An1x and a Virus..Hell..i bet the wooden cheeks on the Virus COST $189 ; )
