I purchased this DPM3 new I think around 1993 and played it very little in church through the years. It has not been turned on in 4 years so I decided to play with her again. I can't get any sounds out even after trying to down load the software. I would like to sell the keyboard but buyers will want to hear it first. Is anyone interested or can give me help to fix my problem? Brought it in Georgia and just too far to take back to store.

The Peavey DPM3 was and still is an awsome sounding keyboard. I wrote a lot of songs 10 years ago on it. Now with todays computer based recording studios I'm giving them new life by recording the individual DPM3 analog output from each midi track. I also transfer the midi tracks to computer for editing and then put them back in the DPM3 in order to record the analog tracks back into the computer.

I bought my first and only DPM se+ in 1992. I have to say I'm still in love with it after all this years. What makes me so crazy about this synth? Very simple. I can load the memory with any sample sound i want using a sound forge ver. 4.5 as a sample dumper via midi. But after 3 years of using my dpm se+ I decided to take it to another step. So i call Peavey electronics and I bought a DPM4 conversion board. Now i still have the features of dpmse+ plus 10 mb of rom sounds and 1 mb of sample memory... The bass sounds are still greatt, he new brass sections are awsome, also drums are getting better with brushes and electronic kits like a built-in TR 808 sounds. After 9 years this baby still sounds good. The analog emulation is amazing, I have programed several new bass imitating juno 106 and tb-303 and are pretty close to the original sound. A new feature is also a 2 octaves bend range great for techno music lines and or brass falls.... Whats else... This synth is so great that i cant change it for other. I only have one problem with it. I once changed the memory battery and still says that the battery is low....when is not. . Also the buttons are all broken.. i belive the construction was not the best...at least for that purpose. THe outer shell is very strong and resistant, like a tank. If anyone knows How to order or to get new butons please let me know.....I love to trade sounds and patches so im open to trade them.....

This is the Second DPM3se Plus I've owned. My first unit was sollen a year after I bought it back in 91' and I missed it so much I had to have another, so I bought another in 98'. Being a novice to music but, very computer hardware savy, I know that this board is built like a tank and I only wish that someone that knew programming would take advantage of the processing power it has. It's not a Korg Trinity or one of those high end models, but the simplicity of it makes it a creators machine that can survive road trips and doesn't need to be serviced once a year. For Hip Hop/ R&B production, the pattern based sequencing is a dream since it doesn't leave your sequences sounding square. If someone could find a way to allow it to store data on a 1.44Mb floppy instead of the 720kb or even modify the operating system to ask for another disk when the first one is full, that would be lovely.

If anyone reading this has a Peavey DPM3, please drop me an e-mail, I'd like to trade sounds with ya'....
