Well...i had one of these a lil while ago. I thought it was pretty good. i used it extensively live for drum sounds, The 808 and 909 kits are preety good i guess...but anywho...i sold it off and bought a Roland Mc-50 Hardware sequencer and Dr-660 (with the money from the DJX). DO i miss it any? hardly. It was Ugly, and the actual sounds didnt impress me. However, if your getting into dance music, are a minimalist, or jus wanna screw around...get this..you wont be sorry.. BTW roland came out with the Eg-101...which seems to be a copy of the DJX...built in speakers..horrible Sequencer...cheezy ass sampler...and no good sounds...Man..cazy isnt it?

There IS no XG, just General Midi, C`mon what do you expect for £230, if it had XG it would need another 4Mb of wave ROM.... Does anyone know how big the waveROM is in the DJX?, I`ve been told Yamaha won`t publish it `cos it`ll embarass the CS1x, 2x, QY70 etc :-0

YOU GUYS OUT THERE WHO OWNS A DJX AND THEN SELL IT AFTER A YEAR WILL REGRET IT THIS KEYBOARD WILL BE A CLASSIC IN TWO YEARS NO MATTER WHAT PEOPLE SAY. i HAVE OWNED LOTS OF PORTABLE KEYBOARDS IN THE PAST AND NOT ONE OF THEM COME CLOSE TO THE DJX. YOU CAN USE THE DOWNSIDE OF THE SAMPLERS RECORDING RATE TO A GOOD ADVANTAGE BY GETTING THESE OLD SOUGHT AFTER SOUNDS.THE ONLY THING I HAVE NOT REALLY FIGURED OUT IS HOW TO ACCESS ALL THE XG SOUNDS ..I ONLY GOT THE SAMPLE ONES AND THE STANDARD GM VIA MIDI BUT AS I DONT HAVE A MANUAL I SUPPOSE AFTER A DAY OR TWO I WILL WORK IT OUT. THIS KEYBOARD IS A PROFFESIONAL EQUIPMENT AND I RECOMMEND IT TO EVERYBODY WHO MAKES MIDI MUSIC I WOULD GIVE 5 OUT OF FIVE BUT INSTEAD I WILL GIVE 4 BECAUSE OF THE SMPLER RATES

Borrowed that DJX again but for longer this time.. One thing this is, is a great Ideas machine especially in the drums dep`t. Choose a style which is close enough, tune the Groove knob as required and switch parts on and off / fills etc as your computer sequencer is on record and play back on the ESI4000 afterwards. takes a lot of the donkey work out of drum programming and the thing can be edited later for originality..

Just for a Laugh I managed to almost totally recreate E-Type`s "Angels Crying" on the GOA style on the DJX, just a bit of Microwave XT and me an the Missus singing thru a Vocoder and it`d be a perfect cover (;-). The styles are actually very good and could easily be used in a Remix situation so long as you turn off the cheesier of the phrases..

unlike the CS?x the 16-part multitimbrality is a doddle despite having to enter the weirdest of MSB/LSB parameters to get to the dance sounds. The sampler is useful for grungeing up sounds to be resampled on a proper unit and is lighter and has more functions than an Emulator-1 (;-).

Has anyone tried editing the effects using XG-EDIT??, the DJX has the same FX processor as the CS?X / MU10 etc so it may work and you can then edit delay times etc and dump`em in as Sysex at the start, just a thought. People seem to knock this thing just for the hell of it, but it certainly beats the shit out of the Roland EG101 which really IS crap at well over twice the price. I`ve really enjoyed my time with the DJX and am loathed to give it back.
