Everything was working before the power supply went out.

This unit is unique because it has the 8 individual outputs section in the back. ” Link

Oberheim DPX-1 “You are bidding on a Oberheim DPX-1 Digital Sample Player. The unit is in good physical condition with scuffs and scratches from normal use. I no longer have any discs (5 1/4 or 3 1/2) to retest the unit. When stored years ago the 5 1/4 drive was not working properly. Missing back expansion cover. Selling the Oberheim AS IS for parts or restoration. The pictures are an important part of the description. ” Link

“This is the Oberheim DPX-1 sample replayer. It comes with a power cable and disks for each drive so you can test its full functionality. Some of the disks are not working… but the famous “Marcato Strings” disk (the best disk in my opinion) is working fine. Both disk drives work, as well as everything else on the machine. There are some wear marks on the unit… scratches and rack wear. What you see in the pictures is accurate to what you get. There’s a little bit of sticker residue on the unit as well but you can remove it.

This unit has full compatibility for loading and playing Mirage, Emulator 2, Prophet 2000, and Akai S-900 disks. The filters are the same analog SSM filters featured on the Emulator 2. All loop points, envelopes, lfo, keytracking, and sample loop points are accurate to the original machines.” Link

“Up for sale is my Oberheim DPX-1

It is running OS2.1 giving this machine the ability to read Akai S900 sample disks. This OS also provides the ability to backup existing disks (although I have never used this feature).

The DPX reads Ensoniq Mirage, Prophet 2000 and probably most important of all Emulator II disks.

Supplied with circa 124 disks (I am not going to list these but suffice to say there are some superb samples from the aforementioned instruments in the library).

I have not used the disks in years. They have been stored boxed in a heated office but given most are 20+ years old i’m not going to guarantee they all work. That said the 10 or so I loaded up this evening were all fine.

The eagle eyed may have already noticed that the 5 1/4 inch drive is missing. This packed up years ago and I no longer have it.

Until recently I have been using this machine with a SD FDD emulator (not included in the sale) which worked superbly hence the discs were not being used. I have re-instated the 3 1/2 inch drive and fitted a mesh blanking plate in the 5 1/4 bay.

One interesting feature is this machine is that it is supplied with the 8 way output / CD ROM Interface. I have no idea if the CD ROM interface works as it’s proprietary.

Included in the sale are:

The DPX-1
3 pieces of documentation; The OS2.1 Engineering Change order, The OS 2.1 Owner’s manual addendum and the Installation instruction for the kit.
124 disk (or there abouts) sample library. As already stated I have tested a few of the disks without experiencing a single failure but cannot guarantee all are working.

There are a few scratches to the top / sides from racking. The DPX looks great when racked up. Additional photos available on request.” Link
