Yamaha DX5
It's a double DX7 with 76 keys. The controllers standard pitch bend, modulation, breath, sustain, portamento in facade (super).
Level connectivity: three mono output, with a DX7 and a mixed. The DX5 as DX1 benefits XLS output and more balanced. Can connect the pedal, sustain, volume.
The DX5 DX7 is really two separate, there are thus two times 32 sound => 64 in single mode.
No multi-effects.
The polyphony is 32 voices in single, dual 16 in 16 and twice in split


This synth is quite complicated to handle. To edit sounds, it's like the DX7, very galley. The manual is not really top. It is difficult information.
You have more that there are two dedant DX7 and you have to think that when we make a manip on they are not on the other. For example, if you pay off the local noon on DXA, it will do the DXB.
For editing, we must fall back on a program like DX Manager or Sound Diver etc ...
Again, gaps remain because these programs do not know the DX5 and DX1 tellements rare.
I have not found a program to edit the performance of DX5. Edition manual and sysex backup in a sequencer.


The sounds are suitable for all styles of music because if you find a more versatile keyboard ... DX
I put 10 because I love the sounds of the 80s. And DX5 has sounds very rich and péchus dual mode.
It's like the JX10P with JX8P


I use DX for quite some time. These machines are super strong and proof there are still a lot for sale. DX5 my 20 years! And not a wrinkle! Always on top.
We must make sure a multi-effect behind in order to at least have a chorus and reverb.
Now with FM7, it was almost the same sounds. A little less dynamic. Not the same grain.
But it's so good to play on such a machine.
The price / quality ratio is hard to give. It should already find a DX5 for sale. The DX1 is the top, the same sound with a super interface. The TX816 is not bad either ...
If I had the choice again, yes!

Yamaha DX5
Ear2 spoke well. Nothing to say. No effect, but this machine still has 20. Impressive when you look at it because it is massive, broad and deep. Imagine the feeling of power that first-time buyers may have. 7 for the respect that one can have for this kind of gear.


Same as Ear2. In addition, mine, bought 500 of rcemment OCCAZ, has failed to notch. Edition therefore impossible. I need to do to request a quote Repair Tool of the display. I was nervous about the final score. 5 Therefore, because it is ditable, but no more because it's a real galre


I looked for this sound for years. Now that I have, I do NOT sell (except to feed my wife and kids, but today I sold the bf before everything else )....


Same as Ear2: this is a legends at your fingertips. And that's pretty impressive to hear sound in today's rcents tubes. Evidence that the BTE has in the stomach and is not ready-to be buried by the sound of a factory aujoud'hui. My home studio consists of the DX-5, SY-77 sounds a little more modern, a TX16W to sample a bit and a PC card with a maximum isis, plus my bass and guitars. I also FM7, I agree with Ear2: nice toy, but of when we hear the sounds of some imitation pathtiques Yamaha. So in love with Yamaha, a tip: type in the hardware, there's only a real
