My DJX (mk1) Almost ten years out of this keyboard. It's been used as a drum machine, a piano, a groove station, and now is living out its old age as my main midi controller. (Mostly because the appregenator sounds so great through sample tank.) I love to pass it through my guitar processor for really amazing leads.

Yes the features are hard to access, yes the sequancer is lacking, but the patches are wonderful more so through decent audio gear.

As a rig for a hobbiest studio I have never had any reason to complain about the DJX's abilities and as an emergency keyboard for stage use it's saved my butt at least five times now.

Downsides... everyhings made of plastic. The LCD screen is hard to read and it's alot bigger than it needs to be. So what? At the time the next closest keyboard that even came close was almost 600 dollars used!

At 290.00 it's really one of my better purchases, figuring almost daily use for a decade and I'm out .08 cents a day! I'd love to see a triton average out so well!!!

As a midi controller it still holds it's own and does everything I ask it to. Unlike most people here, I actually like the color!

If you have any interest at all in picking up a keyboard for whatever reason you can't really go wrong in getting this little gem of a machine!

I got this a while ago because I wanted to try it out. I loved it but then it had to go cause it was taking up too much space + it was a distraction from my other more professional gear that sounds better (because it's more expensive, DUH!).... Put it this way though... this thing stands up to stuff like the Mo'Phatt (which I've owned), The MC-307, which I have right here and the XL-7. Actually, the sounds on the DJX are surprisingly well chosen, meaning that a lot of them don't sound too outdated, which isn't the case with sound from let's say... MO'PHATT. Anywa, all gear has its strengths and this one's got some DAMN good ones generally but more so for its price. I'm supposed to go pick up one tomorrow for $50... I just have to have it again. Peace!

It's all been said here before; extremely good bang for your buck. The DJX 1 is worth its money alone for the drumkits and it's a decent controller as well. The limitations can actually work quite inspiring. Some hidden sounds at bank MSB 111, LSB 1-127. Some are usable (but don't expect radically different timbres), some are not. Use MIDI + a sequencer if you want to get the most out of the DJX - you can achieve a whole lot. Still a very good piece of kit to get started with.

i see a lot of people give this a 5,what marks they have in there pockets for the reallygood stuff i dont know.plus:cheap,some sounds are good,cons:no memory (sucks ),no backlight display( if you a daytime musican maybe no problem ,but for me is very very ...),tochsensetivety not very good, a waste of space in my studio (its to big ) and terrible designed in my opinion.i decided to stay with it for a while because i like some sounds but it is an not growing unit ,that means no programming and it will ever stay an yamaha keyboard and never become my own.sorry for the mark but always start with the factory presets is painfull and time consuming !!
