Yamaha DGX-505
Here comes the time laughing and singing ... It is true that the YAMAHA DGX505 was fun. From mid-range keyboard YAMAHA PSR, the DGX505 has an 88-note keyboard semi-weighted and has an excellent amplification. Considered an alternative to digital pianos Yamaha CVP arranger, the DGX505 navigates Pénard father in a price segment where he reigns alone. It is certainly not in Casio will be found this type of product with regard to Roland, it offers a keyboard 76 notes. The DGX505 if we forget the famous and must-Floppy disk 3.5 "to finally find a smart media reader for reading or saving or Midifile SONG.


As the models came PSR-end or little brothers DGX205 and DGX305, the sale of 505 can be of impressive simplicity. Dedicated anyway or to individuals who wish to play on a 88-low price or musicians who wish to acquire an arranger keyboard longer, we are still far professionnellles features that offer the HD TYROS YAMAHA, ROLAND G70 or the PA1X (Pro) Korg, it goes without saying.


It is unquestionably an excellent arranger keyboard to perfect the use of the keyboard 88 notes does enrich the characteristics of the DGX505. And if it was only a question of price, there is one leader in this segment and price and product today.

Yamaha DGX-505
This keyboard is a hybrid between a piano and a scne synthtiseur type PSR
I had a long test this keyboard without the possder me and I ask the same for avi piannistes Submitted to seeing him as a cheap solution with sounds of the game following the PSR + styles and keyboard heavy 88 keys
Indeed, the sounds its really not bad for the price and all CHARACTERISTICS lctroniques gnral of the machine.
What PCHE and PCHE what really dailleurs and what made me not buy it, it's the keyboard.
This is not a lightweight keyboard, but it is not heavy sellers attention and actually call these keys "full dynamic". These are not ordinary synth keys, but it is not DUTOU piano keys of scne (I will be decked linch because it empty, but pa pouor me ^ ^)


Nothing to say of the cot, everything is very easy little we've had a synth dja in his hands. Note the partition editor rather fun and even useful pluto!


- The big screen
- Sounds
- Editor of the partitions
- The price!

the least
- The keyboard!

DEFINITIONS In a nice keyboard for small vraimen budjets despite his default, this is the price we do not complain and it comes even a aprcier!

The sounds are very good (Piano, strings, church organ, voices)
What are the fish are electric guitars with distortion (Overdriven guitar, distortion guitar) and voice of electronic organs, voice Cool! Organ lacks a bit of tone.

The USB connection is convenient and easy to use to manage the SmartMedia card except that the MIDI songs that are recorded from the computer can not be deleted from the DGX-505.

Notably absent are MIDI ports (in and out) which prevents the connection of an expander or the connection with another MIDI keyboard or if someone can tell how?


The setup is simple enough, but to edit a sound way to apply effects (chorus and reverb for example) must be entered in the menu which is a bit tedious.


The best: sound, display and function scores karaoke (no problem to read files. Kar if they have been previously recorded. Mid)

The least: the lack of MIDI ports, I think it is wrong to Yamaha because it limits the expansion capabilities of the keyboard if only for the connection of an expander. I do not know if the USB port can compensate for the lack of MIDI, but to my knowledge I do not think there is a sound module that passes plugs directly into the USB port of a MIDI keyboard
