There doesn't seem to be anything this machine can't do ! It's a limited sampler by todays standards but it's still great for sampling most short duration things

and then you can synthesize the sample and layer it with whatever you want. As a synth alone it's great ! Buy one if you can! By the way, without a manual this thing is very hard to use -( I've got a third party &quot;bible&quot; thats about 200 pages long ! I don't have the factory manual for it so I can't help you guys out who are looking for one. :-( ) I paid $500 for mine at a music store in Regina on the last tour.

I have been using my Dss1 for about 5 years now, I am looking to finally sell it regretably, it is in Good condition with no internal or mechanical problems whatsoever the machine works like a horse and it has some of the best sounds that I've heard for the money,(the #1 button is missing on the front panel,however you can steal program by either replacing it or use the tip of a pencil like I do) I will sell it to an interested person for 350.00 firm; plus shipping and handling.

I tend to agree with the other reviews. It can make some cool synth sounds,

it's not at all user-friendly. Brass:good Strings:ok Bass:fair piano:fair If anyone is interested, I'm considering selling mine. It's mint cond.

Includes several disks by New Age Software. Some good sounds.

I have owned two of these DSS-1's for about seven years and I realy like them ! Nice fat sounding pads are the main draw for me. The DDL's really add depth. REAL VCA's VCF's are nice and I consider the sampler part to basically make this a versatile analog synth because you can use ANY waveform as your basis for synthesis. Most old Analog at it's time only had saw, square, and pulse. Here is a kicker for you. My one DSS-1 is one of SIX known in CANADA with 2 meg of memory and SCSI support ! You can imagine the pros that that added. Also has the upgraded 50% faster drive, backlit display as well. I just have too many synths .... may have to sell one ! ..... It was my favorite axe for years but I really like the newer stuff too.... Definately a worth while button. Stay away from factory disks, they give you a rash ......
