Oberheim DX
Another BAR eprom. The little sister of the DMX, it actually has less percussion, making sounds, 18 against 24 for DMX, otherwise some sounds seem to differ in appearance between the two (claps). THE FIRST version is not noon, the second, that the picture is.
The advantage over the indniable DMX are the tuning knobs derrire the machine, for all sounds.
It opens the bte, are changed and we eproms new sounds ...
There are 6 mono outputs, and an output Stereo.
The squenceur trs is complete for the era (1982): 100 patterns, 50 songs.
Function of quantization, swing, rolls etc ...
I control by squenceur drum map from my computer ...


Like most of the vintage stuff, all is at hand, allowing the rglages in real time during the game, thanks to the many knobs.
I never opened the manual, as I MIDI control ... if I had to take a look to see how we changed the EPROM.


I mainly bought for one reason: to have the sound of New Order on most of their prods, notte their famous Blue Monday ...
I love the snare and claps ...


I for one year, and all my components intgre with LinnDrum. Version twelve o'clock plant as rare in this ct Atlantic, mine comes from the United States, and unlike THE FIRST version, it has no internal switch to go from 110 220 volts, so you need a converter prvoir ...
I got it for 120 dollars, the guy I was given with the original carton and label maintenance Oberheim in Himself, to prove to myself that c'tait Premire one hand!
BAR A beautiful ...

Nothing to add on features. Mine is Midi (only U.S. versions were, but not all, the photo above is a MIDI version). Mine has other eproms, in addition, that can be loaded into the BAR instead of the original EPROM, which gives me a wider range of sounds.


Super easy to program. Good sequencer.


This drum machine has excellent sound, which can be detuned via knobs on the back of the bike. I even feel (but not certain) that Billy Jeans Michael Jackson has been recorded with it. In any case, if not with it, it looks a lot like it.


It's been two years since I bought it (bought in 2005) and I have never regretted my purchase.
