i realy want that synth.
in my opinion i think its one of the best synthezisers ever(it isnt better than the Korg M1 but never mind that)
The sounds you hear on records from the 80s are 99 out of 100 times Simmons drums roland synths AND the DX7.
In the song: Whats Love Got To DO With It,You can hear a harmonica and thats the dx7(i have that patch loaded on my fm8)
and offcourse the Time of my life sound From the dirty dancing soundtrack.
Thats the electric piano.
The strings on One Vision is the dx7
The only thing i dislike about the DX is that it ISNT multi-timbral but nevertheless its an Cosmos rocking machine:P

I wonder if Queen(SORT OF) still uses old synths on their records or if they do it with(like Jean michel jarre did with Teo and Tea) Pro-tools Roland mc-505
I think that spike uses the korg triton extreme 88 like he does on tour.

i just wanted to share this with you.

Bye.

My brother bought one. Expensive, considering he doesn't even play keyboards that often,
but it's great fun to dick around with.

I dont think that the DX is to expensive.
for 200-300 bucks you can buy one in pretty good condition..And it is a good value of money.

While I'm a little suspicious that this is coming from the same guy who has the Yamaha PSR whatever...

The DX-7 definitely falls in the category of a "Classic" synth, primiraly because it was one of the first boards to be based on "FM Synthesis", while not really incorporating the true definition of it.

The problem with buying one of these old boards, is just WHICH version of the board you get. And you can download true FM synthesis as well as every patch on the DX, so why would you buy one? Unless you were simply playing it stand alone or are s synth enthusiast, I wouldn't buy one.

One other drawback, and it's major. If you plan to use this for recording and MIDI applications, forget it. Won't work. Long story.

Actually, the DX-7II, an updated version, was "bi-timbral".
I think Freddie would've like that. :)

the guy who started the tread(me) also got the psr-18 psr-300 psr-500 psr-530 and ctk-731.

the dx-7II is a cool machine but its expensive.
The normal dx7 with flightcase rom cartridge and manual is 250-300 bucks.
the dx7II is 400-500bucks.
and the only extra is Floppydrive and BI-timbral.

I downloaded FM8(crack) and i have 400 banks with only dx-7 sounds so i dont realy need a real one.
The only reason that i want one is because i can say:HEEEY PEOPLE I GOT THE DX7!!!

Why do you have to be so unkind to him? Did he do anything wrong by posting this topic or something? Please show a little respects towards other people. If you can't reply in a normal way, just shut up.

Don't listen to it, Bradley

No problem :) Some people just seem to have a problem with treating other people normally.

What about the Yamaha Tyros 2 one? I believe that's a hell of a keyboard.

I don't have it.

I only have a stupid Roland E-38, from 1995. It quite sucks.

Well, even though I seem to be a big fan of the DX, I believe that was pretty much the LAST decent Yamaha keyboard. Couldn't stand the Motif. But I stopped buying keyboard "workstations" a while ago, and mainly went for the sound engine.

The Tyros is just Yamaha's answer to Roland's Fantom. But the Korg Oasys seems to be the role-model for all these types... If you have seven grand to blow.

The best sounds in keyboards right now?

Electric Piano / Wurlizter..............Nord Electro 2
Acoustic Piano..........................Roland XV-88
Synths...........................toss up: Nord Lead/Wave or Access Virus
B-3...........................................Nord Electro 2 or Hammond XK-3

My opinion.

FYI, The Roland E-38 is one of the "Arranger" keyboard series that Roland put out to attack the Casio market. Very similar to Bradley's CTK series. It is in no way to be confused with the quality and pro features that the XP, XV, JV, and Fantom offer, and you would "feel" the difference within seconds, Rick. And if you bought the Tyros? You would probably need smelling salts for the first few days.

I'm definitely not an expert. But my Roland is just too basic, in many ways. I'm thinking of buying a new one. The piano sound (which I use a lot) is just too thin and fake...

Thanks for your info! Really appreciated.

Roland keyboards where good until the G-70,After that they became shit.
Listen to the tyros-2 or the Korg pa2xpro these machines are awesome.
Synthesizers:
Roland fantom=shit
Korg triton/oasys=awesome.
Yamaha motif=awesome.

Sorry guys i cant help it i hate roland.
