Essentially, this was Yamaha's answer to the CZ101. It's an ultra-cheap, four-oscillator FM synth in a small case, with tiny keys. Although FM sounds extremely dated nowadays, and the 'first-generation' FM of the DX100 is extremely fuzzy and noise, this thing is excellent for bass noises - and you can wear it, which is nice. Even if you just use the bass presets, it's extremely cheap and makes a decent note-entry keyboard for a sequencing set-up.

the sounds are a little bit noisy but mixed with an analog synth, you can create some very phatt sounds. connect a volume pot with breath control an mess a little with the e.g. bias (op 4) and you´ll get some cool sweeps controlled with the volume pot (or pedal).

I often use the electric piano and bass sounds for house and hip hop music etc. for its low price you get a lot of crazy sounds out of it.

Hehe... music stores think these are toys. Watch for 'em! Picked mine up yesterday for $30. It's a kewl little box and you'll recognise the "Fusion Bass" patch the minute you hit a low note. I mainly picked it up to trade off because it was such a good deal... but I think I'll have to keep this little monster. Besides... it's great to get booming bass out of a little cheezbox like this. People don't know what to think when they see it on stage, I'll bet ;) I give it a 3.5 to 4 for the sound, but a healthy 5 for "bang for the buck"

My first synth ever. I bought it back in '86, and I still use it today. It's noisy as hell, with lots of aliasing, but makes great twinkley rusty razorsaw sounds.

As a CZ101 owner, I was at once delighted with its complex envelopes and frustrated with its cheep interface. Yesterday, I bought a DX100 for $120. It fills in a lot of the gaps I was looking at in the CZ, and is a lot easier to use. And it has a mod wheel! 192 sounds beats 32 any day. FM synthesis provides me the dirt and grit I'd been looking for without the hassle of the tedious CZ envelope stepping. All in all, a great trade. Anyone want a CZ w/manual? $75 takes it...
