Well...the first time i left a comment on this synth that was half bad and half good. now im back to leave a review thats all GOOD. why? cuz instead of basing my reviews of this synth on what i had found out when only playing with it at the store, im going to give you reviews on how i actually spent an hour or two jus sittin down and playin it when i actually bought it. ok, so the knobs dont do much to the sound, but hey, they look kinda cool : ) another thing i found out that was pleasing to me is its ability to perform great live (used it last night at a gig along with my Roland Jp8000 and Juno 60). This by all means should not be used as the "lead" synth or the only synth your using to perform.But if you choose to do that, go ahead, good luck. When used in junction with other synths that are better to some degree, the DJX can give you that missin link you may have been lookin for when playin live. The Drum parts on this synth are what make me happy. Obviously, they aint no dr660 or tr909, but they sound great nontheless. and i picked my DJX up for $250...and for that, i cant complain. Dont judge a synth by how it looks (ugly plastic and on-board speakers) judge it by how it sounds and by the quality. I give her a 5 when playin live

Those who criticise the DJX either are talking about a different machine or no shit about music. This is NOT a fucking toy. It's the best keyboard Yamaha have ever produced, a synth even. This is NOT aimed at kids; it's a professional workstation. I am a DJ and I use the DJX on my sets. I also have friends who are DJs and use it as well. What the fuck do you mean the knobs do nothing? They distort the sound to your liking. This has so many features that you just HAVE to buy one, whether for home or professional use. The first 140 voices are just as good as some REALLY costly synths, and the percussion and rythms are better than Roland's shit. The GM voices are cool for MIDI. The only thing I could possibly complain about is that the LCD isn't backlit (but I have a mini lamp). So my advice is: ignore the shit and read this and the last two posts. This is a POWERFUL PROFESSIONAL DJ WORKSTATION, and NOT a fucking kid's toy! You Roland-heads just can't take it that you payed a grand or more for some shit to do all the hard stuff for you when you could have bought the DJX for a fifth of the price!

Alright, why is everyone dissing this? If you have noiced, everyone who OWNS one loves it, the only people that hate it are those that played it for a few minutes. I hated it at first too, built in speakers, batteries, weird color, and until i TOOK SOME TIME all the sounds were horrible and the knobs had no effect, but then spent a hour or so on it, and realized the qualities. You have to set the the knobs to work , otherwise they don't effect the sound, but when you turn them on full blast, they have dramatic impact, like turning every knob all the way up on a TB 303. The appregiator is great, the patterns are, and it has a ribbon controller. This is just a reminder that techno is taking any sound (no matter how cheezy or odd) and making a groove out of it. That's why those analog's are so popular. This is proof you don't need 1000 dollars to make music. THose hotshots need their synths to do all their work. I've done a performance with one $150 synth, it's the music and what you do, not how expensive your keyboard is. this is great for the price, even for much more. This makes music fun again, and in the reach of those who don't have thousands of dollars. I suggest strongly that you buy this keyboard. Don't listen to those hotshots. THey probably hate the tb 303. Try it yourself, give it an hour, I guarantee that you will be pleased.

Aaaaargh! Shut up, you kiddy amateur shits. The DJX is fucking excellent! I am a PROFESSIONAL DJ! I'm 27 years old, for chrisakes, not a 'kid'. This is no toy. I know a bargain when I see one and the DJX is it. What's wrong with the voices? They're all cool. Stop spouting bullshit cos you've got shitty Rolands that cost the earth. I've been in this game for four years now, and the DJX is one of the best things I've come across. It is accessible enough to be sold to teenagers, but has the potential to be used professionally. I create MIDI music as well, and the DJX is excellent for MIDI. The percussion is better than some synths that cost like five times the price! So my advice is don't listen to the other shit on this page and BUY A DJX!!!

I s'pose I'm one of these kiddies you keep raving on about. I'm 14 and I am thinking about buying a DJX. Stop giving it such a hard time. This is not a professional synth, and Yamaha are not pretending that it is. It's a GOOD keyboard. It costs a fraction of the price of many shitty synths. You lot want to steer clear of the DJX because you don't want to be branded as one of the kiddies that you go on about. I don't actually think that any 12-year old is going to be nagging for one of these - £269.99 is a considerable amount of cash taking this keyboard out of the toy league. Give it a chance. I do not think this is 'really cool'. Don't patronise 14-year olds. Look at what it offers. MIDI support, full size keys, and an OK selection of voices.
