affordable well rounded synthesizer, highly recommended!


I'm very impressed with this keyboard, what originally caught my attention was the fact that it was based off the iconic Dx7, a keyboard known for it's rich sounds and powerful FM operators. Truthfully, you don't come across many options when it comes to FM synthesizers, having learned it in school, I was eager to buy a hardware synth I could use to learn more about this unique form of synthesis. What i learned is that this keyboard has potential to create a plethora of sounds and easy to use. The operators on this keyboard are very powerful and can be added with each other and routed in ways that make complex waveforms, but if you aren't into synthesis and just want cool pad sounds or synth leads It comes with many rich and beautiful presets you can record!Lastly they add some extra features on it which aren't amazing by any means but very nice to have; this would include, a looper and various on-board effects.



For sho'I would buy this again!!


My first FM synth. Was a bit worried with the DX7's reputation of being "impossible" to program. But, nope..this is rather easy to navigate and maneuver around the menus. Can't wait to make some Taylor Dayne style brass riffs...kissing. But yeah if you want that DX sound in a small package this is the synth for you!



Bass player


Full disclosure I'm a bass player and when my band started doing allot of 80's cover songs that were synth bass instead of bass guitar I searched around for an inexpensive keyboard. I looked for used DX7's and stumbled across the RefaceDX. I'm not planning to do any FM programming and have found allot of nice patches on Soundmodo and some other places. So far I'm pretty happy with the Reface.




My new favorite mini-synth


Big sound, little package, best mini-keys I've ever played. Probably the most easily programmable FM synth, ever. The tiny speakers sound surprisingly good and the batteries last long enough for a good long jam in the park. Better yet, plug it into a good sound system and blow your mind. Yamaha's online Soundmondo site is a great bonus. There, you can use a patch editor and share patches with other users.

Great retro synth


If you don't feel like fiddling with an actual dx7 and their crazy menu-system of editing this spares you with a modernized UI touch to a great hardware synth.
