The DX11 is no DX7. It has 2 less operators and thus produces cheap sounds. Get the DX7 or versions after and you will be happy. The DX7 is the real deal. The DX11 is just a cheap though useable spinoff. But you will never get that amazing fulltines sound out of the cheap DX11. Trust me. Go for the best

Had a DX11 in 1988-sold it for a Roland D-50. Big mistake! Took me 20 years to replace it. Nothing beats its ease of programmability. I've programmed the most realistic Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer, Gibson Les Paul and Fender Stratocaster sounds. Even a flute that has the overtones and initial "murmur"! Will NEVER get rid of it!! And last but not the least-it's the SEXIEST synth EVER built IMHO!

Well, i think that Yamaha DX11 is an awesome instrument and it's very underestimated. I mean, it contains so many advantages than the (by far) more popular DX7 that it should have been a best seller too. DX11 has a big advantage from the older (DX7,DX9 etc) dx series synths: you can program it to split the keyboard in sections and play up to 8 instruments at the same time! This is very useful for the gigs... Also, by being 4 years younger model than the DX7 it contains better technologies for the waveform etc. I think that DX11 is a more useful tool than DX9, DX21,DX100 etc and it also can be even better than the legendary dx7 if you know how to use it...

Pretty Good Synthesizer. I have been using it semi-professionally for the last 10-12 years. Made some interesting ethnic sounds myself, which cannot be found anywhere else. Shahab Latif, Illinois, USA.

The DX11 is capable of very expressive synthesis, as are all the Yamaha DX line, when used with a breath controller. The DX11 has the same sound engine as the WT11, which was the dedicated sound module sold with the WX11 wind controller. It includes the PEG (Pitch Envelope Generator) to put a slight scoop or drop at the beginning of notes, and in mono mode, the portamento will augment the feeling of playing a stringed instrument legato.

The DX11 also includes buttons for Easy Edit, which allows the DX11 to be programmed using an analog-like paradigm. This programming mode works like Yamaha's implementation of analog-subtractive-synthesis programming on the (then recently acquired) Korg's 707 and DS8. This is an easy way to tweak a sound just a bit, as it affects quite a few parameters simultaneously.

The DX11 is capable of using all the Yamaha 4-op patches/sounds (TX81Z, TQ5, WT11, etc.), including the popular "Lately Bass"/"Heavy Bass." It has a sturdy metal case, and I've not had any problems with any of the switches and connections. The build on this unit is as tank-solid as my DX7II.

Even though I'm tempted to sell it to get more modern gear, I've always backed off.
