Excellent synth , havent had any of the drive problems I am hearing about . I have run into keyboard triggering problems , but its nothing that cant be taken care of with a screwdriver and 15 minutes of time . Wouldn't trade it for anything ,because I haven't heard any other synths that offer its characteristic unison thickness . I'm actually searching for another with the ram upgrade and the scsi port (if it exists)

The DSS-1 was an excellent synthesizer. I find its sampling less than optimal, but far from useless- as I usethe sampling section as a way to acquire waveforms for the more than adequate subtractive synthesis system built into it. The additive synth section is weak. Being able to draw your own waveforms is fun, if less useful than one might imagine. The built in digital delays provide some fine chorusing and delay effects. I have two of them and have them sample each other. This results in some remarkable sounds. I am pleased with my DSS-1. I just wish it had a SCSI out and more RAM.... If anyone reading this knows how I can acquire a SCSI port or more RAM for this tank of a synth (it's made out of particle board, metal and plastic!) please let me know! HW

I bought this monster in 1986 and have used it constantly both in the studio and on gigs. I am still amazed at the sounds that can be extracted from it and of course, having had it for so long, I find it fairly easy to programme. Yes, it is very slow and you are limited to only so many sounds, as you can only access sounds that are on a floppy disk. Does any one know if there is an editor available anywhere?

Killer unit- had it since 1986. Yeah the drive is SLOW, limited memory, and you need to be a weight-lifter to lug the beast around, but sounds smooth and fat. I'd be using mine more but the original floppy drive has been out for almost a year. Anyone know how to fix it CHEAP? I notice that several individuals seek copies of the manual. I've got the user manual, but it is VERY long and would be a real pain to photocopy. I suppose if enough people were interested it could be scanned or something. Feel free to e-mail me if interested.
