Oberheim DX Classic 80's Programmable Digital Drum Machine - 240V - Serviced!

The Oberheim DX is the smaller, little brother to the DMX. It was released in 1983 and it truely has those huge, classic 80's drum sounds! The DX features individual tuning knobs for the drum tones and an external trigger input. Its sounds are sampled recordings of actual instruments. It has a number of human like feel effects such as a great swing function, rolls, flams and other weird time signatures and grooves. Best of all it's easy to operate. There are also 6 individual outputs for easing studio use. It has been used by Hip Hop artists since the very beginning of Hip Hop. The sequencer has 100 memory positions, and 50 songs can be stored.
