For being released in teh early 80s, this synth is by far and away one of the best of its era. Great sounds, but there are 10,000+ library files online to go through to find what you're looking for. I've had the best success in making or altering existing patches rather than using old ones. If you're doing 80s styled music, this is essential.

Price paid

$300 (used)

UTILIZATION

THe interface is difficult to get used to. Programming this requires patience and the ability to read very thick manuals. It's all algorithm based, so fun with math. It's great for either overly digital sounds or pads. If you want to sound like Orbital, this is your synth.

SOUNDS

Sounds a bit nasally, but after running it through some standard effects, it sounds beautiful (eq, reverb). Does not have effects built in.

OVERALL OPINION

Rugged piece of gear. Heavy (almost 40 lbs) but it's a good solid casing around the machine, the keys can take a pretty good beating (live).A wonderful online community around the instrument that covers my tech support needs

I love my DX7. Don't take it away. Please.
