Obviously some people have trouble using this very simple machine. Its got a lot of punch for the modest cost. 4 seconds of sampling is great!! The MIDI works fine as long as you dont try to do any real complex moves with it. Keep it simple and this board will give you more than your money's worth. Forget the presets, as with any synth. Waste of time. Read the manual. The DJX is really quite amazing. Yamaha packed a lot of value into this piece of gear, but its not a $2000 board either, so keep that in mind. You can always pay more, but this DJX represents one of the very best values on the market right now. Its HOT!!! Very HOT!!! What other machine does so much for only $189???? Nothing Ive ever seen. 5/5 for the value in this board. Remember tho its not a Kurz 2500 --keep things in perspective and have fun with it. Lotta fun for $189!!!!! ENJOY!!!!

Well, to start out with, I purchased the DJX for $189, which I guess was a good deal? The sampling time is fairly limited (all and all I would say about 4 sec. internal time). The other problem is, If you want to record something with the DJX, it wants to throw it's 2 cents into the mix (in the form of the most abhorrent, second-rate preset beats I've ever heard). The midi capabilities (or lack there of) are very hard to with. It's a great toy, maybe good for adding little touches to songs at best.

AWESOME VALUE!! For the money, you cant get anything that even comes close to what this will do. Dont compare this to boards that cost 5-10 times as much. That is silly. PEACE!!!!

No, it's not bloody crap. It's just not <brilliant>. I mean, for a start, it's MIDI spec is a pain in the proberbial backside. There's quite a lot you can do with it, and quite a lot you can fudge with it, and quite a lot most people will not notice. Let's just try and end this silly debate, and put things in context. Do I like my DJX? Erm ,yes, it's been very handy in the group I play with. Would I prefer a Triton? Erm, yes. But to be fair, there's lots more I'd want over the Triton. The point is: it is not a godlike instrument. It is fairly lowly. But I cannot afford much more. I may well upgrade some day soon, but for now it is fine. Mine was cheap, it filled a purpose and it has sounded good on the several gigs I've played and the recording I've been on. And we're not a dance group; mainly we play 60s/70s pop and funk. I would love more gear, better gear, and a computer system that worked to sequence this lot. Btu I don't, so I make do. This is why I like my lowly blue keyboard: it produces decentish sounds, a wide mix of them, is cheap and has a nice enough touch to control other stuff. I am realiging my score: it's a four. It is nowhere near worth a 5, I mean, they could alter this far more than they have done in the forthcoming djx-ii. For the price it's quite good, and with a bit of effort it produces realistic sounds. Most of the people I've played to in crappy pub-type gigs couldn't really care less that my percussive organ (homemade patch) wasn't quite like Booker T's settings. One thing I can point out is that my keyboard playing skills are anything but inadequate. I play very well, I just have a shitty board. But it *DOES*. So quite complaining. If you have one, you probably like it. If you don't, you don't want one or don't like it. If you have your MPC and all that stuff, why the hell do you want one? =]. Thats just my point-of-view. Can we stop this argument now?
