Aha! – the DX9 appreciation society starts here. I have (amongst other stuff), both a DX9 and a DX7. The DX7 is better. BUT the DX9 has a lot of character and is so idiosyncratic. It is lo-fi I suppose. But the fact it sounds wrong, well, that makes it right in my books. Who wants perfection? Long live the DX9!! Woo hoo

Got mine for 40 quid on ebay. 40 QUID!!!!!

I'm determined to make my $200 investment payoff. Perhaps I'm also hard-headed, but I'm going for the manual. Thanks to everyone who's commented so far. You know what I notice? Maybe we're all trying to be nice, but no one is willing to outright hate the machine. I'm counting on its charm. And who says lo-fi isn't where it's at anyway, considering these noises complained of. DX9, your day will come. Wish me luck! Thanks, sonicstate! wrongo@gmail.com

Ok, a lot of time is spent dogging the DX9. I agree that the op/algorithms could be better, but if you take a little time with one of these you can get some pretty sweet sounds. I've got some progs I'd be willing to share. I've had one of these for over 15 years. The original progs were scrapped when I got it, so I started pretty much from scratch without a manual. It's a decent unit. I recently was able to acquire a manual... it's crap, don't bother with it. Play with the fine tune and detune features and you can get some cool stuff happening. I'd be glad to make contact with anyone who still uses it!

It weighs a ton, and is virtualy break-proof. It could've done with being more than 4op, more than single midi, more than 8 algorhythms etc, etc, I guess it could've done with being a dx7! To be fair, I use it as my input midi keyboard to sequencer, and use everything else to provide the sounds, and for that, it works perfectly. Also the price (mine was £70) makes it ideal for the job. The odd FM sound or two get created (if I have long enough), and then mixed and shunted into a sampler for more real time control. The way I look at it is that I've got a full sized midi keyboard for half the price of a new one, thats a hundred times stronger, and can give me the odd FM sound if I want one. Not at all bad at half the price. :-)

A friend called up the other day...and he said "You want my 'Patrick Moraz' synth?" I was confused..but I accepted. He said it had been taking up space in his room. I definitely wasnt a Moraz synth! It was a DX9. It works, but the portamento function makes all 20 presest tough to use. I cant truly figure out how to change the preset, and actually save it. For instance, It will let me change it from poly to Mono. When i change it, the mono will only work for 4 seconds and switch back to poly. Vise-versa. I would like to reset the entire synth. How would i go about doing this? THanks for ANY help I can get.
