First of all what is this thing doing on synth site? Maybe I confused this site with toysrus.com or something. Anyway my little brother has a DJX he got for his birthday, the guy that said it was for wanna be DJ's and producers was right on, this thing sucks, but my bro sure thinks he's a super hero with it. The knobs have very little effect on the sounds, and there seems to be an awful lot of hip hop patterns as opposed to techno patterns. Probably yamaha did a market analysis and decided that kids mostly wanna be rappers, so they geared it towards them. I'm glad to see the ribbon controller is back, as this beats a wheel any day. Basically, any point you press on it is considered zero, and you modulate the pitch by moving left or right. If you push far to the left, that means you can go WAY down by sliding right, and vice versa. About the built-in-speakers...not ALL things with built in speakers are bad, my HS-60 and Electronic Dream Plant Wasp both have built in speakers and they're powerful synths nonetheless. I can't believe that the same company that made the DX7 made this.

Hey, guys! You seem to be catched by Yamaha's marketing. Did you really consider buying a keyboard with built-in speakers? This toy is really intended for 12-year old wanna-bees, for whom it must be excellent. Personally, I wouldn't buy DJX for my little son, because it has no educational value (except tweaking with filters or so). However, I think it's NOT worthless. It is simply for another market - let's stop reviewing it here.

This keyboard seems to be aimed at the new wave of wannabe DJ's and producers. The sounds are horrible. It just sounds too "happy". The ribbon controller is pretty cool, somewhat like yamaha had on the CS-08, with a nice rubber pad. I would even buy a MC-303 before I bought on of these and I HATE mc-303's. If you wanna buy a keyboard for use in a DJ setup, save up and get a Roland JX-305. The LCD display reminds me of one of those cheesy hand held video games. It's not even backlit, so I wonder how many serious DJ applications could utilize this. It makes me wonder why they called it the "DJX". I guess I can see yamaha's logic behind making such a piece of shite as this...it will sell, there's lots of 12 year olds who listen to MTV shite, and decide..."oh that looks easy" and they beg their mommy to buy them a keyboard. Have fun!

Let me just start of by saying this thing is a peice of shit. I just played one at the local store and for $320.00 your much better of buying a used real synthesizer. The nobs on this thing are crap they hardly do any thing to the sound. the thing you rub though does some cool shit to the soiund. If you are just starting i would maybe recommend this thing if you're maybe 12 years old but if you are aa adult you might not want to waste your money on this toy. I didn't mess with the sampler so maybe its alright but 7.5 seconds who cares it cant make up for all the other short comings
