I bought one when it came out, after hearing rumours about this magic all-in-one box. It was £269 quid. According to the salesman, it supposedly didn't transmit MIDI controller messages. But I heard the demo in the shop and I was impressed enough to say 'f*ck it'. £269 quid was a lot to me at the time, I was a student with a part-time telesales job and my girlfriend (now wife) was pregnant. As I carried it back to our high-rise, I wondered if I had been a chump and bought a toy. So did I regret it??? Ha ha ha ha ha... NO! Did I wish I had spent £1000 on a pro- keyboard, once I found out what it could do when hooked up to an Atari and Cubase 3.1?? Ha ha ha ha ha... NO! Did I write a load of tunes on it?? Why, yes! Have I still got it? Yes again. If you think it is rubbish, you need to get a life. I've got more money now, an electronic drumkit and a few nice soft synths, but so what?! Yamaha totally rules and the DJX was close to being a dream come true back in '98.

Ive read a bunch of reviews already downing this little board and calling it a toy. NOT TRUE!I own a circuit bent djx1 with a patch bay feature and stereo outputs and it kicks major @ss! I dont use it for techno or hip hop crap I use it for industrial music and it works great! people say the sampler is crap and its to short, but these are the people using a microphone that probably came from radio shack. To make use of the sampler ,I sample synth sample from logic and reason on my computer and send it through my SB Audigy card straight to the djx and it works great.If your handy crafting your own cables,you may try samples off a portable CD player wich is cool also.but most important dont limit yourself to sampling with just a microphone and inaudible slurs.I also use my djx1 as one of my synth and computer controlers.Its true that you cant save patches on the djx wich really sucks,But if you want to enhance your tweaking options I recommend trying a BOSS pitch shifter or a Digitech bass envelope filter pedal wich can be found at any guitar center.I paid 550.00 for my circuit bent djx and I wouldnt sell or trade it for anything!Bottom line,if you want true hip hop or techno samples,buy some acid loops.If you want to tweak and make some cool original sounds buy it and bend it!! DONT BE AFRAID TO TRY AFFECT PEDALS!!!!!!

This is not jut a keyboard .it is a recording studio in itself. Perfect for a proffessional touch to a newbie.

when this board met is untimely demise,yamaha missed out on an opportunity to capitalize on all the young up and coming producers starting out with little to no cash.
