In a few years no one will be using whatever digital synths are being used now (the case w/ analogs is different). So why bother with an expensive setup ($2000<) if new stuff is coming in all the time, making electronic media instruments dated in just a few years? Anyone who is serious about their art would want it to be listened to, read or seen in a distant future. Some aspects of electronic music are too bound by technology, making the "artist" a slave to it.

The easy answer to this is gear like the DJX. It sounds good and has a great price. Plus,you'll have fun w/ it, and in a few years you won't mind having bought it when it becomes outdated, because it was such a small figure of a price and a really good deal (I paid $125 for it).

It's great for the money, but to the guy that says the DJX can "Do waldorf shit", Nay... Not even close. If I were going to buy a 'budget' synth (one with speakers and the like) it would be this one, BUT since I'm not, I'm not going to bother with it. It's too much of a 'toy' to those that have had a taste of "real synthesis", but like I said, it's a great synth for the money.

I have a removed a bunch of posts from this thread as it had degraded into a flaming session.

This is where reviews are supoosed to be posted. If you wish to discuss the pros and cons of the idea of something like the DJX, can use www.the-gas-station.com

I scoffed at this thing initially as well, then sat down with it and stared at the price tag in disbelief. This the most bang for the buck that one can find anywhere. Very usable stuff, and the arpeggiator and ribbon controller are decent.

And all you pretenders saying it sucks just because it has built-in speakers and the name 'portasound' can take your trash somewhere else. Remember the price point we're talking about here. It has external outputs. How could speakers, no matter how horrible sounding (and they're not bad at all), be anything but a bonus!?

It's me again, I said I'd let you know if I found something else cool, and well, I did!!! My God, this thing can do Waldorf shit!!! It's soooo gorgeous the sounds coming out of it. I've got some presets I found...hit Voice, and set to #005, "Adrenaline". Set the assign knob to release[should be called decay, IMHO, but anyway], set the DSP options to: Function #35: ON Function #36: 31 (D Hard), and Function #06:127 then set the arp' (F38) to something neat(oh yeah make sure it's on, just hit the button, above the power switch). Make sure the Part Control is set to Main Voice, then turn Reso all the way up, Cutoff to about 9:00, and the assign somewhere between 12:00 and all the way down. Hit something...my goodness...a guitarist friend now wants me to help him do "White Zombie shit" after hearing this.
