It has pretty good features considering the age of this classic. Velocity and aftertouch. Breath control, portamento, sustain and modulation inputs as well. Not bad. 16 voices, 6 operator FM, 5 octave keyboard and it holds 32 patches. There's a million patches floating around the net which you can send to your dx7 through midi.

Price paid

$180

UTILIZATION

Definitely not the easiest synth to use or program. But with patience and a little knowledge in FM synthesis you'll be creating patches like there's no tomorrow. If you're looking for a synth that's not boring this is it!

SOUNDS

The sound is good for those gritty basslines or weird bell type sounds or just flat out weird! Basically you create the sound you wanna hear just don't expect to replicate anything realistic.

OVERALL OPINION

Tough? Hell yes this thing weighs a ton. The membrane buttons wear through after heavy use but they'll still work.

I'll always love this synth just because of how deep it is. Sure its digital but then again it is the best selling synth of all time and many great hits we're made with it. Then again I did grow up in the 80's that might explain my connection!
