A good, quite cheap little unit which is capable of some fat sounds. Like the cs-01 it is small and cute. It is becoming quite expensive in the UK..almost, if not more expensive than the DX7 which is madness. The button contacts play up and are a bugger to service. I think the presets are quite good. Love the thunder. Don't pay much for one...maybe £75. The DX7 is a much more powerful and professional unit. The DX100 is a compremise that is best used as an expander rather than a stand alone keyboard. Check out the DX27 which is a larger version of the 100. It has proper keys and is cheaper.

The majority of presets on this machine are pretty awful however you can download hundreds of sysex and midi patches that are used on various other yamaha synths (DX and TX) and they are truly awesome. Designing your own sounds is somewhat difficult due to yamaha's poor FM interface at the time (made up for in the DX200). I would reccomend using an FX unit with this baby to add some chorus/reverb/delay to fatten it up. On the whole I love this machine and it can create so awesome sci-fi/industrial/experimental sounds if used correctly. For the price it's a bargain and I would never want to loose it. It also stands up very well to live performance.

this is one of the greatest synths i've ever used; i take it everywhere, and i use it for everything. now...forget i said anything so great about it (becuase it's getting more difficult to find replacement machines)! seriously, one of the fattest machines i've ever used - no wait, equal to the Juno 60, and at many things, it suprpasses the JUNO.

a couple of days ago a friend of mine gave me this little was very dirty haven't been used for at least five years or so. The first thing I did was plug in headphones and punched a low key. WHOA!!! The first note growled it's first note at me with this geat crackly sound that was obvious of its dorment past. Kinda reminded me of a big old car engine that hasn't been started for a decade but once you get it going it's sounds great! I was soo happy. Just starting music production and wanted to get a syth for my set up so I could roll some notes out. So the next day I started cleaning this little monster....took everything apart...I mean everything. I even painted the little green buttons(those are soo cheesy looking). Put it back together and found that a couple of the keys didn't respond. back apart it came. I found that by taking the little plastic strip off of the rubber keyboard strip it plays perfectly. Interesting to say the least. Now I am off to open new realms with this little monster.

PXP MUSIC from United Kingdom writes:

We have used this synth extensively over the years, often using various effects on its sounds, it features heavely on our track Rhythm Of Life from our Calcium Waves CD ( - we love it as a lead synth on this track. Although we do not overly like FM synthesis, having sold our DX7, FX7 etc, PXP keeps hold of this synth for it's very mid-eighties sound - not a bad synth.
