I bought a DX200 instead of a DX7, well i'm not disapointed at all : it's the same !!!! realy, and the DX200 features a multimode resonant filter, effets, drum track, and step sequencer : it's a good choise for who wants a FM synth or some wicked dance sounds, DX200 programmers has taken some LSD i guess .... a great machine : not just a toy lise lots of other groovebox.

"The DX7II was bi-timbral - why have they ditched this on the new 200??."

because it's mostly a toy aimed at ecstasy- popping dance music "sequencer start button" -pushing freaks.

I'm still trying to debate whether I should flog this and get a DX7 proper. You can get the most wonderful sounds out of this box - with chorus and reverb some of the ethereal leads nearly brought tears to my eyes. However, the bundled software, XGWORKS, is a total and utter pain in the arse. Patch management is a nightmare - if the librarian can open SYSEX files then I must have missed something. In other words, you need more software than XGWORKS if you want to download and try out patches in .SYX format. The build quality is a little light and the case is plasticky. Also, you can only play one patch at a time on this machine. The DX7II was bi-timbral - why have they ditched this on the new 200??.

Whiners probably paid full price, so just STFU.

I'll let you figure that one out. Perfectly viable machine, does more than really any other $200 synth/grooveplop does, and it's got FM and it's real time tweakable. Those who diss only are admitting to their own failings..

I've loaded (and tweaked) a lot of DX7 patches into the DX200's user bank and now I have a synth with a soundset that I wouldn't want to be without. Keep in mind that about 99% of the 10,000+ DX7 patches on the internet are garbage but if you patiently audition them and then tweak the decent ones you'll end up with a lot of good sounds. I recommend the freeware program "DX Manager 1.0" (or the newer v1.1) available at

There are also Yamaha PLG150DX patches (.mid) included in the data folder on the included CD ROM.
