I have had the DJX for over a year now...and I figured I should speak now. I'll lay this out plain and simple:

-The majority of the sounds suck because there is no fatness or warmth to them (good for the price though).

-The filters and FX are really suprisingly a good value to the board that is so cheap.

-The sampler is a bit cheezy, but it comes in valuable.

-Overall, it's great for it's price, but the sounds aren't top of the line stuff (which you should expect for the money). So, my main gripes are semi-crappy sounds and no sequencer. If there was a sequencer even for the drumming I would praise this board a lot more highly, but it's just too hard for someone to take the time and play everyone in every measure. Believe me, when I first got it, I played each drum note for over 170 measures, it sucked!

So, if you're just starting out, it's a good buy. If you're rich, it's a good midi controller...if you are just an average person who wants to buy another synth, pass it up.

I have blown a lot of dough on synths from Roland, Emu, Kawai, Alesis, Peavey, Ensoniq, Kurzweil, Boss and yes Yamaha too. And I have just got to say that this DJX is one KILLER DEAL for the money. You wont find so much for so little anywhere. Dont compare it to anything that costs thousands--that is ridiculous to even think of, but if you compare it to anything anywhere near its price, you will see it is a BIG WINNER!! I give it a 5 out of 5 for the value it represents!!Yes, there are better synths out there but not for this kind of money. No way!! Buy it!

I want one of these fuckers!! I've tried it out at guitar center, and it's way cool. Here's why: 1) Patches other than GM. A lot of good vintage sounds too. 2) Ribbon controller (assignable) 3) Cutoff, Resonance, and Assignable (like MOD, maybe?) knobs. Come on people! 4)Arpeggiator 5) FX (you've heard me bitch about other low end PSR not having them)

Now you tell me where you're gonna find a synth with this stuff for the price anywhere else? Unless you want to hunt down a Moog or other anolog synth for five times what this thing cost, in the meantime, why don't we get over our PSR prejudices and take a closer look at thing? Oh yeah, about thin sounds- turn the Bass Boost knob up or plug in to something else (like a mixer or amp with EQ). The people who think it sucks are the people who have their Korg Triton workstations and about 20 modules. People like me who CAN'T AFFORD THOSE FUCKIN' THINGS are content to use our PSR keyboards, and our demos will be just as good.

The Keyboard is pretty good for the money but if you want a heavy weight bass sound, forget it. But thats just me, I'm picky about bass and drums.

If you want a cheap keyboard with a selection of some good and some poor sounds which sounds okay but won't blow your socks off then it's a good buy. If you want something a little more solid sounding then this will disapoint.

BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK----HANDS DOWN WINNER!!!!!

NO CONTEST!!!!!! Dont listen to the cheap gear haters. They dont even own any cool gear anyway. This DJX is cheap, but you will not find more features and fun for the money. Impossible. Any real player knows it. Knocking gear that is made for people on a budget is some aristocratic bull shit. Yamaha packed a huge punch into this baby and it is easy to get KILLER sounds out of it. Mark my word. this unit is a winner with a future. It will always be in demand. ITS VERY COOL!!!
