Yamaha DX-27

The DX-27 .... 4 OP yamaha FM for all your classic sounds....this one is similar to the DX-21 keyboard, being velocity sensitive.... 8 note poly (as they all were)...but this one I think was a later release at around the DX-100/TX18Z time... adopting thier larger memories, and has i think 4 banks of 24 sounds.... but using Internal & external master-banks, gives 192 memory locations like the dx-100, but with a bigger keyboard.......

So.... The DX-27.....comments please....

Picked one up last night in great condiditon. Spent the whole night learning how to program the thing. So far I've come to the conclusions that's it's great for noises. Really weird one. I trying to do mainly industrial/experimental stuff so it will suit me for some things. The presets suck, but using the operators isn't too difficult to mess things up. One trick is to use this, and my electribe EA-1 in conjunction. I use the audio gate on the tribe, and set the DX27 to send the same channel as the tribe, and just use the filters/effects of the tribe to get even weirder noises. If you are looking for good clean warm sounds don't even try, but for good dirty, gritty sounds it ain't half bad considering you can pick em up s/h for about $120.

I have to agree with rob 100% on his review. I also like to make industrial music and Im pretty sure if einstruzende neubauten knew about the noise on this thing he would have bought one (if he didnt already). THe thing that attracted me most to this synth was the fact that it had a real nice plain and simple design. I though to myself "If the on board stuff sucks,at least Ill have a sexy looking controller" :)

The on board is pretty crappy. But what I like to do is open a sample (try RACE CAR,BANK D-8) and then go into edit mode(Dont forget to turn of memory protect:)
hold in a note and move the data slide up and down while the edit is set on FREQ RATIO.

Great first keyboard! Cheap and doesnt look gay!

Have had a slightly busted one for some time but once i figured a way around the probs (I use it as a sound module) she makes some pretty interesting noises.

Soundiver helps with the FM editing headache, just make sure you download all your user programs into soundiver first then edit your patch then upload the whole user bank or you will erase all your hardwork.

If you dont have a breathe controller soundiver will also allow you to access some of these parameters making for more interesting sounds.

Enjoy!

Have to agree with christopher. There is no place for homophobic comments like this. We're living in a different world now, in case you hadn't noticed.

GROW UP.

Oh, by the way, DX27 rocks for what it is.

Had a DX27 for many years. Not easy to program but easy to find a preset near to what you want then edit it. Run in through a delay and a chorus and the sounds get much bigger. Layers up nice with an analogue. Lead sounds get a kinda 'sync' effect when you get it out of range. Some sounds will only go so low and no further out of range which is a pity.

I have one and I think it has some awesome sounds, but the problem is 8
keys don't make any sound and I tried cleaning all of the dust out of it
and the results are the same. Do you any of guys have advice on making
the keys sound again, fix the midi, and light up the lcd? I got it for
75 bucks and hate to get rid of it. Thanks in advance for any help!
