3 words...Oh My God. The DX200 should not be considered a groove box. It is a full blown FM synthesis module that lets the user create mind-blowing soundscapes, or emulate 80's synth pop ala Depeche Mode/New Order. Call your nearest Guitar Center right now!! They are blowing these out for $199!!! You will not find a more creative, cutting edge sound creation tool at this price. The sequencer allows you to play one synth line and 3 rhythm tracks at a time, and for those who complain about the sequencing abilities not up to par with the MPC 2000, I'd ask....why would anyone still sequence on a groove box, when in seconds you can cut, copy, paste, change velocities, etc with a computer based sequencer. The DX200 can conjure up heavy metallic washes of sound, beautiful horns, strings, bells, as well as death metal grungy thunder. It has something for everyone. Buy one of these!!! You will not be disappointed!!!

This is not a review, but please read this is you use the DX200 because I really need your advice.. I've been looking at various reviews for the DX200. Let me say that I want to buy it, but this note-drop issue is a concern. I also hear that the FM7 soft FM-synth may be more powerful. However, I need something that can get the juices flowing fairly quickly and also leave some room for growth. This is why I'm leaning towards the DX200. I've read that the note-drop issue goes away if the DX200 is not used in Unison mode. I've downloaded the manual and looked at what Unison mode is, but can't quite understand it. My questions is this: how does disabling Unison mode limit the sounds and abilities of the DX200? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

I got one two weeks ago. I was was so anti-DX7, because of its complexity. But this box is really easy to use, wit direct control to the main features. And the sounds, I am so sorry, I didnt enter to FM synthesis earlier, because, these sounds I was looking for soooo long: raw, harsh, screech, scream... And with the effects u get unbelieveable results. THere is simple no emulations possible with other synths. And the ice of the cake is that the DX200 can control the FM7: now we are talking about useable software... Yamaha, I luv u.

Wish list: re-release of the original DX7, but with new interface, like the DX200: lots of knobs and sliders, and integration of Formant synthesis engine. I am sure it will wipe out the market of hardware synths and place anothe milestone....

JUst do it Yamaha, U can if u want...

Ask to your users, they surely will be enthousiastic

I just picked one up this week for $200 usd and this thing is nasty. Within minutes I had it set up and screaming, the sound quality is amazing. As with most people I'll say that the drums are weak, but useable. So if you're looking for an all in one you might want to check something else out. However, if you want a fun and easliy controlable FM module that sounds very different to many other things on the market this is for you. I was thinking of getting an electribe but this thing blows it out of the water. Haven't used the software editor yet but i'm sure it's out of this world.
