“Oberheim DMX W/MIDI /external Custom TUNING BOX/ Free EPROMS INCLUDED!!. Condition is “Used”.

Ok ..here we go…Here’s our Ob DMX that’s been in our studio “forever” lol!. Recently inspected…battery has been swapped. Led’s work perfectly. Has the midi kit where the I/O was put into the side panel. The fun thing was I had a box made in which the tunings were able to be changed via using the CV port in the back. You just need a 9 volt power supply. There’s roughly 90 or so eproms that im including. You only see 53 on one side…but if you flip that foam over there’s more! SURPRISE!! lol….that’s around $800 usd in chips alone…so go ahead…” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Oberheim DMX

“Oberheim DMX drum machine recently refurbished with MIDI and custom features. Condition is Seller refurbished.

This DMX originally came to me in sad condition — random holes in the case, no voice boards and several other missing parts. I rebuilt it, filling the holes and repainting the front part, adding a full complement of Electrongate 1554E voice cards, replacing the other missing parts, adding the Electrongate MIDI upgrade, and just for fun, replacing the walnut end panels with maple ones, and replacing the red LED display with a green version (including a green gel filter over the display). In addition, I added a toggle switch on the rear panel that selects a completely different set of sounds for seven of the voice boards (all but the cymbals). At one setting, all sounds are the standard, original samples. The other setting selects alternate versions of the sounds.

The machine is completely functional, with the original factory sequences loaded, and all switches have been cleaned and work smoothly. Two of the switches do not have correct markings, but have been blacked out so the difference is hardly noticeable.
The rear panel has had several holes filled (with epoxy) and has not been repainted.

This is a unique version of the DMX, the drum machine used by so many groups in the 1980s.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Oberheim DMX Project Machine

“Vintage Oberheim DMX Drum Machine. Here is the classic hit making drum machine that was the gold standard when it was introduced. This unit is NOT WORKING. Unit powers on, display first reads Oberheim DMX. Then changes to “Internal error 12, data might be bad. Press < > to empty. Case error”. When I purchased this unit many years ago, only the cymbal buttons produced sounds. I never had a chance to have it repaired, so it just sat in the corner. I just decided to clear room in my studio and sell it as is. I recently tested the unit and discovered that now no sounds are being produced at all. Internally, several voice cards are missing, and the battery is loose. All sliders and buttons are free moving and not sticky or stuck. As shown in the pictures, the case, side panels and top panel are in excellent condition, with only a few scratches on the bottom panel. Power cord is included. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

dmxmidi “This is an Oberheim DMX drum machine with midi. I just picked this up from being serviced from a tech who worked at Oberheim while this was released, so no one better to service this! This condition is good, though it does show some wear with knicks and scratches to the paint. The display works perfect and the functionality is excellent, as it was just serviced. The midi plate shows some wear, just being very descriptive. Sounds amazing, a classic drum machine! ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
