Yamaha DX5 Synthesizer

   0 reviews  -  2367 views

    The Yamaha DX5 was a derivative of the DX1, introduced in 1985 with a list price of US$3,495. It has the same synth engine, but lacked the DX1's fully weighted keys, polyphonic aftertouch, aesthetics (rosewood case and wooden keyboard) and user interface features (parameter displays). It included 76 keys with channel aftertouch and slightly improved MIDI features.

    Programming instruments on the DX1 is a little easier than on a DX5 because of extensive parameter displays, but both have an advantage against a DX7, because they have dedicated buttons for some programming tasks and bigger display, so programming is not so tedious as on a DX7.
