Okay, first of all, every single one of you is missing the point. You're going on and on about all this irrelevant shit that doesn't really explain anything to someone reading these reviews trying to decide if the DJX is for them. The simple fact of the matter is this. The DJX is NOT a high-end expensive analogue, or digital synth, it is NOT a high-end expensive sampler, a computer, a sequencer, a drum machine, etc. It is NOT intended for major recording artists to use (even though they could if they want, why the hell not?!) whether the music is Hip-Hop, Techno, Drum 'N Bass, etc. However, it is also not a peice of shit joke that was made for kids playing with G.I. Joe action figures. However, if some kid uses it as a learning aid or toy, great. The DJX was designed to be a cool, inexpensive way to get into making certain styles of music, for people that aren't rich, snobby, fake-ass punk assholes that can afford anything in the world. When you get more money, THEN you can move up slowly, but at least the DJX allows you that option. It was also designed for DJ's (you know, like the name, DJX) to have an all purpose device to maybe add a couple of loops, do effects, and play over their mixes. So, to sum it all up, stop trying to compare the DJX to high-end professional gear, it isn't an S-5000, or an MPC or whatever, because it isn't supposed to be. If you want that, then you buy that. This can be a nice addition to a musician's arsenal if used the way that it was meant to be used. Go try it out, if you like it, then buy it! No one ever said that you use just that to make records with (even though one guy said that he did!). I see that a lot of people are concerned with wannabe's trying to make fake-ass tracks with it, but, then again, wannabe's can make fake-ass tracks with "real" equipment, too. It seems to me that you can get a lot of cool sounds out of it, so why not? Oh yeah, to that guy that was talking shit about American music, I can say a lot of negative stuff about America, too, I'm not waving a flag or anything. But, uh, Techno music started in Detroit. You can dispute that if you want, but it's true. Kraftwerk influenced Techno, they didn't create it. Also, quit arguing and bickering over musical styles, Hip-Hop and Techno are cousins. You can dispute that if you want, too, but it's true. Anyone who says they aren't is ignorant.

Is it the greatest thing ever made? No. Will it blow away a VA synth or Akai sampler? hell no! Is it a great beginner piece or a fun addition to a setup? Hell YES!

Don't be a snob, don't be an idiot and state the obvious. Of course it's not "proper" gear. But it also doesn't have the accompanying price tag of "proper" gear. So if you're a youth with limited funds or just plain poor, here's what you get for about $250 now: 61note Keyboard/realtime ribbon controller and realtime knobs that transmit controller commands for recording into sequencer, controlling software, etc/3 songbanks with 6 tracks each/8bit mono sampler with over 6 seconds sampling time for sampling drum hits,etc to 12 memor sections/basic fx/good stock sounds/stereo speakers/32 note polyphony-16 multitimbrality.

You could still use it as a controller and xtra sound module after you got tired of it.

This unit kicks ass as a D & B unit. That's all I use it for --DRUM & BASS track and to trigger other tracks from two Alesis MMT-8's (which I love dearly). I've been using it as such for over 2 months. It is way cooler than alot of other much more expensive gear that I have. With these 3 units I can do almost anything. Oh yea--I do have a nice sampler ---Old Akai SO-1 that I got pretty cheap. I love cheap stuff that blows away the big expensive rigs. And this is it baby--If you're not a millionaire and you want to have fun, think DJX + Alesis MMT-8 + cheap sampler and you'll be amazed at what you can do. Fuck the snobs who say it's a toy--they probably have a hard time making good music with their studios full of expensive shit. Talent is everything ---not being able to buy the latest fucking craze device that costs $$$$---its all about the player---cheap stuff rules!! I'll say it again--CHEAP STUFF RULES!!!!!!

Hey guy's I've been reading the reveiws on this thing and I'm gonna put in my 2 Cents worth from using it. This thing is great, if you need good sounds from the preset, or if you want samples you can do it. This machine was not created to everything for you, I mean come on people. Where is your creativity ( for those of you who bash good gear) Just Beacuse is does'nt have the (Groove Approval) on it you think it's Wack. Giveme a break, if thats the case you'll fall for anything wiht a name on it!!!!!!!!!!!

Real musicians use sounds and incorporate them in the mix of Production.... LESSON NUMBER ONE !!!!

I'M OUT CLONES !!!!!!!!!!!!

Thats where you are wrong,we played with a DJX for a week in our studio just to see what all the fuss was about.I cannot believe people actually think this thing is a serious piece of gear.And no we didnt buy it we just borrowed it from a fellow producers 14 year old brother. When you eventually get around to using a proper synth you will see what an ass you are making of yourself claiming this thing is good.
