Yamaha DX7
32-voice polyphony is good, except for the effects spciaux trs long, but we rarely needed.
The DX is the champion of CONTRL of expressiveness: sensitivity typing speed, pressure APRS depression of the keys (to apparatre disparatre and a vibrato by force), knobs and the Controller of breath (impressive, but also for the killing blows a snorkel!).
Its rglages of harmonic oscillators are an original gniale, joining Ralite physical acoustics. Good!


SIMPE visuliser principle, but difficult to anticipate beginners trs. APRS is being done. The choice of algorithm ncessite also a good Entran, because you have to analyze the srtucturation of his wish to see which should be taken (eg a xylophone is a blade mtalique + noise wooden mallet , so an algorithm two branches!).
The edition of the sounds is easy if you do not want to look too far. By pinailleur against the will of the harmonics to give them hours of research, such as "I have 30 possibilities to spend diffrent fillets flat round threads on my string fretless bass" (yes, yes, I have reached that level of decision-head).
The manual is ridiculous to ridicule. Get a manual indpendant Yamaha, titled "Matrisez your DX", you will directly at suprieur.


All sounds are possible on a DX-7. When this synth was released it quickly rpandu IDE that could only make sounds mtalliques and cold. But it does not know when to use it. It is possible to make good brass round though nervous, soft fretless bass, and especially it is possible to make layers of violins almost analog, shiny above, velvety and warm down with a symphonic effect trs rich (they can cause incredible chorus LFO indpendants By creating three in each voice).
In addition, the oscillators can be dsynchronisation allow its variant lgrement stamp each button press, which amne ism which no one is capable sampler.
I dtest factory sounds, trs ugly, garish. A RULES: editing. The whole thing is to have patience and s'entraner.


THE FIRST hours passion for this synth I do not spare. It offers a freedom that only large cratrice analogue research can offer, and this combines with the possible expression trs rich.
It is both a synth and a synth scne of research. But it does not engage that those who are curious, passionate and patient. To those on the DX-7 will prove gnreux and limitless. And it is clear that this synth is not for those who want "all at once."

Yamaha DX7
A keyboard mastard enough, great ergonomics, polyphony 32, noon, dx wide, the supermax not buy the e! , The arpeggio and the famous 6 ossicalteur LFO, portamento, then controlled by a PC supermax I think the die
even if possible square c
, Directly fo really be a developer, g programs, may I m not outgoing.

of charisma (the DX7)


It should not be pressed, a force to manipulate manipulate .....

pratik not to live, if you already have 2 or 3 machine you take it personally fodrai 4 hands after more than a year, I'm getting good marks, ilfaut manage the supermax!
the sounds make me forget so much traveling ke j ca ....

Midi Quest XL, ca if I can stuff myself to directly control every parameter of a mouse click


Simply impresionant Ave CUNE distortion or reverb, and even without sound are really egg, ilfaut honestly say also uses ke j Midi Quest XL with,

g and a Bank of evil done

g put pedal to the nuts (just a touch all or nothing) and c genial Here

then between the sysex, the note can send machines ke, ki l ARPEGGIO hard all the pedals ...

JFE much bass sounds of jungle, trance, rhythmic bruitale, the koa 80 years, I uses fabulous bell, and the creator of the sound mode supermax


I just spent 10 hours on it today, with a 17 rx, a tr727 and a sampler, I just tell Vou
ke g if arrested, including c ke g Paske for FOA, g not lost sounds, and I se ke tomorrow I will do it again the same.

moa for this machine is a killer.

j even have to be on two DX7, carremen, mainte fo ke y j bought a large table (dining room) and mix

If any one the arpeggio control via a pc, it would mean to a control program of some supermax ki bugg, I die on the spot ... but called me

Yamaha DX7
At risk of sounding too biased, I can not let the DX7 with notes as bad! When it comes to making a synth for the stage with studio use as well, we must believe that the DX7 was firmly rooted in my subconscious. Like a mantra subliminal, DX7, DX7 ... I naturally oriented one occasion of this legendary synthesizer how to: there are spoiled for choice. For less than 400 euros with various options following vendors, business abound for this synth I have found beautiful: an indefinable color (black at first, but actually a slightly metallic plum), screen-printing table as math, buttons and soft green flush nicely aligned, two dials configurable keyboard 61 keys to touch soft but expressive MIDI implémantation pioneer (full incidentally), a cartridge slot so old game console, and my friends, a monumental weight! Forget the look and toc plastoc some synths, this one is cut in the cast! Provide a solid cover for transport! Curiosity: the controller of breath, quite hard to find now.


There is no easier and no more complicated than most recent synths where a button 10000 cache functions. Everything is chosen in relation to the different colors of menu. If you want to tweak the sounds, you can find happiness at the cost of spending hours: this is not the intuitive analog. If like me, you want a keyboard stage or studio cheap, very well made and most importantly, totally timeless, you can not go wrong. But this is largely due to the fact that with a PC MIDI + + style DXManager dedicated editor, you have access to an online sound library royalty-free saving you the unbelievable tedious hack and presets a bit "light ".


This is where we fall back into childhood. At the turn of the choice of sounds, are connected and the flashbacks we realize how the sounds of the DX7 were predominant in many productions of the 80s. The largest used it and there is always a sound that reminds you of something, even diffuse. Still valid, it comes into its own in any musical style although FM synthesis does not reproduce all types of sounds to perfection. Do not have internal effect it will be important to associate it with a good reverb (as was the case in the 80s), sounds a bit dry sounding alone. If you liked the sound of the 80s, the DX7 is for you.


It's been three months now and I never get tired. On stage, master keyboard or to spice up your compositions, it is great. For 300 euros on average, why deprive yourself of such a beast? It's a love story. The DX7 equipped with a card type or Supermax E! brings their own set of additional features but mine is raw casting, always brings me something new, even without tinkering (I prefer to hack into analog). If the first few listens seem disappointing especially with the presets, take a step back and wait to find (or hack internet) sounds enticing. And then you realize how much this synth sound is full of treasures to exploit or repurpose. A word to the VIVA EL DX7!
