I am a beginner trying to learn to play the keyboard. Apart from the synthesizer functionality, can the Yamaha DX21 be recommended for normal keyboard use?

I bought this synth because it was really cheap, and i figured that it'd be worth it, even if it wasn't that great. The presets aren't too good, but then again, who buys a synth for the presets?... i didn't have any problems with programming it (but then again, i have several yamaha fm synths)... it's GREAT for bell sounds or anything metallic or chimey. Outboard effects makes the difference with this machine, because a little extra reverb or echo can make this thing very phat. I've been playing through the audio-in filters of an Electribe EA-1, and let me tell you that it has breathed new life into this old beast! If you can find one, buy it, because they're very cheap, but very dependable and well constructed. It may not have all of the bells and whistles of todays newer synths, and i wouldn't use it as my only piece of equipment, but it makes a very good addition to any setup.

the dx21 has found me quite impressed with the 4 operator programming capability. for $195 canadian dollars (around $130 usd), i think its been a good buy. its all about making your own sounds from one to four pure sine wave-type sounds. i use mine for emo and indie, such as the anniversary, the get up kids, and reggie and the full effect. rentals too. this one falls short with lack of knobs for real-time tweaking -- i really wish it had cutoff and resonance knobs!

oh well, its good enuf for the $.
