This digital synth will provide you with the sounds that you need to spark your creativity anytime you start working on a new song. I remember using this synth back in 08, and I used it for about a year and loved every minute of it. It has all of the connections you need to get it in line with the rest of your gear to bring audio and data back and forth. At the time I was using this with a drum machine by boss and was able to come up with some pretty good tunes.


UTILIZATION

It will take some time to get use to just because it’s a different set up then most other digital synths. You will get the hang of it eventually and be well on your way with it. The manual was easy to understand as well, it wasn’t too thick of a book if I remember correctly and it was pretty too the point and not a lot of jibberish in it.


SOUNDS

Sounds where good, seemed to have a lot of vintage type synths from many years ago, but I can say that is exactly what I was looking for at the time so if you arent into those type of synths then I wouldn’t consider getting the Yamaha DX 7 because it will be useless to you with those old synths. But you do have the option to manipulate all the sounds and edit the parameters to how you want them which will affect the sounds that come out.


OVERALL OPINION

Overall, great board and I remember having so much fun with it. I no longer have it but if I was to sit down with it today I still feel like I would know how to do everything. Its like riding a bike, you just don’t forget how to do it even if you get older. I may go out and get another one of these one day since they don’t cost that much and didn’t cost that much back then so I can only image what they are going for in todays music world. I will be on the look out for another one .
