You are needlessly lowering the score by rating it a 1 even though you probably haven't even played it.

HELLO - THE DJX COSTS 299$ NEW AND CAME WITH SOME [CRAP] HEADPHONES AND POWERSUPPLY AND SUSTAIN PEDAL.

299$. 299$. Am I making myself clear? No, it doesn't compare with the latest and greatest 3000$ analog synth, but it's also 2300$ less expensive.

I can't believe people like you. You are like the idiot that talks loudly about what a piece of crap the Camaro Z28 is compared to a Lamborghini Diablo. HELLO - PRICE _IS_ A CONSIDERATION.

The DJX in the hands of a kid is a toy. The DJX in the hands of someone that needs quick, good preset sounds is a godsend. It has a good handful of usable drumsets. The 3 analog drumsets are good. The dance drumset is good. The DJX drumset is good. The others are good. It has maybe 100 preset sounds that are all very usable, but sure, someone with a DJX might go, "Hey, that's a DJX." ... Out of the box, it's difficult to integrate into a professional midi system... So I developed a Cakewalk Studioware Panel to snapshot its settings into the midi files so you can get around the fact that it doesn't store presets. It has a usable filter, and its knob transmits midi. And of course the filter works independently for each of the 16 tracks. (digital filters?) ... The DJX isn't really a "synthesizer" -- it's a box of preset sounds. The preset sounds are good and usable. Get it alone and you'll have a decent amount of canned sounds ... used in conjunction with other gear it will find its niche... You could use it heavily on maybe one album and then after that, move it to a secondary gear position. i love this thing. the people that slam it are bothered because it is cheap and a lot of non-professionals get it as a toy. the bottom line is ... do really cool sounds come out of this box? yes. really cool synths and basses and pads and drums.

Matt

try leaving batteries in your DJX, it`ll remember the samples and your configs, just remember to make sure the adapter is plugged properly in when using it, buy decent batteries so they won`t leak, should last ages when just keeping the memories. wish these things had sign on the display to let you know when running on batteries for this reason.

Still a great source of sounds on the cheap it really has no business being under £250 but everyone is glad that it is.. it (and the RM1x) seem to have helped drive the JX305 and EG101 from the market (I`ve read that Roland have discontinued them) (;-)..

CS80 has got to be the dumbest shit out there and all the rest of the DJX haters. This thing is not a fucking toy! Get on with your lives and quit slamming good gear. I would buy this again a thousand times over. The Drums are Phat a the basses are second only to Emu's planet Phatt, yeah I said it, and I'll say it again. I spent 265.00 brand new for this gear and anyone who complains about this needs to shut up and go play with their soundcards and cakewalk cyber hacking wanna bee techno shit and leave us intelligent buyers who bought this awesome machine. The sampler is great for recording sounds off other boards and modules, and the rhythm controller has got to be the coolest shit on earth. With the right sequencer you can be extremely dangerous. To CS80, if you think you'll find this for 99 dollars next year you've got to be either on crack or just another hater. If you don't want it don't buy it and just shut up about it. People don't be mistaken, get this board now! Call Sweetwater Sound, Guitar Center, and other big time dealers, and I know from experience it's the hottest selling item of 99' That's right better than Xp's MC2000's 303's 505's EX5's Emu's Ensoniq, and everyone else. I love gear like this because it will for companies to do more for less so it helps us all. Don't you guys get it? And it's a bad ass machine like this mysterious blue box that's responsible. First the QY series now this you guys are looking out for budget musicians and looking out with no cutbacks in quality but cutbacks in bullshit. Thank You Yamaha 5 out of 5 easy, and for those who don't think so eat a dickup till you hickup! This shit is dope as Hell!!!
