“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. ” Link

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! ” Link

One says “stick”, one says “kick”, one says “toms” and one is unlabeled. These are easily worth 50 each and I was told by the guy I bought this from that the kick and toms cards are the 808 sounds.” Link

used dmx “This is one of the first digital drum machines. It has been used in Hip Hop, New Wave and pop songs by such artists as: Run DMC, New Order, Herbie Hancock, Madonna, Roni Size, Eurythmics, Slick Rick and many others.

It was recently professionally serviced by Electrongate and works as new.

This unit includes the memory expansion board which doubles the available memory capacity.

All buttons, sliders, outputs and electronics have been tested and are guaranteed to work.
These are hard to come by in this condition as they have been discontinued since the 80’s.” Link

A data error message is displayed on the screen when it powers up, but I think it means the battery needs to be replaced. I’ve included the original manual and haven’t noticed any functional issues.

oberheimdmx “This listing is for a vintage DMX drum machine. This DMX is in excellent physical condition and very clean. I have had this DMX for over 25 years and used it a few times on some recording sessions right after I purchased it. Since it was not MIDI, I didn’t use it much. The internal battery has been in the machine for over 25 years and should be changed. Aside from turning it on; no further testing was done. Also, their some messages that come across the screen after turning the machine on. Some of the messages are: Memory Full; Internal Err 12; Cassette Mode; Data may be bad!; Press < ^ > to empty; etc. Even with the fore mentioned information that I just mentioned; these machines are still in high demand because there are plenty of techs out there that work on these machines and they can also be converted to MIDI. With that said; I am selling this machine in “as-is” condition with no warranties or guaranties implied; and no refunds. You will also need to supply your own power cord as I took one from a desk top computer to turn it on. If you are reading or looking at this listing; I assume you know about these machines.” Link

WORKING CONDITION -Excellent. We just got it back from Bruce Forat where he installed a fresh battery and diagnostics, cleaning and check-up. Can’t find a better example!” Link

DMX, Oberheim @ 15 July 2014, Comments Off on Oberheim DMX with MIDI

” Oberheim DMX tricked out with midi and M-Ram, also has the original factory patches! This thing is a dream machine for sure. The midi is old school early 80s era type so don’t try to get all fancy with it(http://www.electrongate.com/dmxfiles/dmxmidiupgrade.html) . The M-Ram is a memory chip installed to elliminate the battery (http://www.electrongate.com/dmxfiles/mram.html). No more battery changes plus you can basically have all the memory you would ever want. All the extras were made and installed by the master, Paul White of Electrongate aka “The DMX Files.” http://www.electrongate.com/dmxfiles/ . Paul probably built this machine when it was new at Oberheim. He worked there for many many years. It has the standard issues of an old machine, the sliders get dirty once in a while and you have to slide them up and down a few times to clean them, and it’s got it’s wear marks from use over the years. Other than that it’s a wonderful piece of music history.” Link

“The Original!! Straight out of the glory days of Dreamland Recording in Woodstock, NY (console wiring harness layout still taped on top!), This DMX with midi was used on more top recordings than you can count. Though it powers up, functionality is intermittent at best. Could use an overhaul to bring it back to OEM specs. One of the thumb screws on the front is missing. Comes with power cord and original manual” Link

“For your consideration is the Oberheim DMX MIDI vintage drum machine.
The DMX MIDI has been gently used in a smoke free studio, but shows some cosmetic wear(see pics).
The unit has been tested and is completely functional.
The DMX has just been serviced, including a new internal battery, and cleaning of the trigger switches.
Included in the listing is the Oberheim DMX MIDI as pictured.” Link

” I’m selling my vintage Oberheim DMX drum machine. All parts and sound chips are original and in working order. The only thing that has been customized is the addition of 2 thumbscrews on the front of the unit. This allows you to more easily open the machine up and adjust the tone of the drum sounds without the need for a screw driver.
Also included with be a custom deluxe case (see pictures). The case was built by “Anvil Cases” and it is extremely heavy duty. Ideal for playing gigs and safe storage.” Link

“This unit is in all around excellent working condition and just recently serviced. Brand new backup battery installed. All buttons, sliders, ins/outs, midi, alpha numeric display, and leds are all working just as they should. Cosmetically, this machine is in very good condition with some general scratches/dings/scuffs/paint wear to mention. Original thumb screws included! The fader caps are from Emu SP-12/1200’s and work very nicely. AC line also included. This DMX machine sounds incredible, and will be missed.” Link

“Your looking at a Rare Oberheim OBXa Synth, DMX Drum machine and a DSX sequencer in one Vintage package!
I’m not a keyboard player so playing and knowing this analog Synth/Drum Machine/Sequencer Im not. I had a tech go thru it and make sure all is working. all knobs and sliders are smooth. but he doesn’t know much about the synth so he couldn’t guarantee it.
he was able to make the the synth work each note and keys are working fine. We end up touching the wrong button and the sound will be gone,
touch it again and the sound is back.
all the equipment power up fine. I do have Schematics for it as well. there are no returns and if you purchase this product you’re taking it on “as is”. I have no doubt that with some TLC this can be an amazing analog synth for the right person. ask me any questions before bidding and Thanks for looking.” Link

DMX, DSX, OB-8, Oberheim @ 30 October 2012, Comments Off on Oberheim OB8 with Oberheim DSX and Oberheim DMX

” Here we have is a vintage retro complete Oberheim OB8 synthesizer system from 1984. This setup comes complete with the Oberheim OB8 synthesizer, The Oberheim DSX sequencer, and the DMX Drum machine. Also included are the original manual for the OB8, a copy of the OB8 service manual, and the original Operators manual for the DMX drum machine. There is no manual for the DSX sequencer. THere are 5 extra working voice cards for the DMX drum machine also included. The sounds are Cowbell/handclap (there are two of these), Long Tom, snare, and hihat.

As far as sounds for the Ob8, There are 4 patch tapes included which are the Ob8 original factory patches, a backup copy of the factory patches, and Ob8 sound patch tape volumes 1 and 2.

This system has a couple of functional flaws which I have not bothered to get repaired. The OB8 has a garbled voice and after it heats up, it corrects itself or it doesn’t. Depends on what day it is. The DMX drum machine has timing issues and needs to be serviced. (The tempo fluctuates from time to time) Both of these problems should be inexpensive and easy to repair. The DSX sequencer works as it should.

As far as the physical condition of everything, I would rate this system an 8 out of 10. People who know me well, know I am compulsive about functionality and physical cosmetics. We keep all of our vintage gear in tip top condition. We did not take the time to get this repaired and are selling this as is.

Included are the ribbon cable to interface the Ob8 with the DSX sequencer and all of the power cables to power the system. Those are the only cables included. As a special bonus, we are including the original sales receipt from 1984, (see pictures) the original warranty card, and patch information cards.” Link

“Vintage Oberheim DMX Programmable Digital Drum Machine Made in the USA

Drum Machine is in used condition. It has scratches, scuffs and nicks. It has been tested and found to be in proper working condition. I detected 2 possible dead keys. They might just require a bit of a repair. I did not test the record function and playback, and I only tested sound through headphones. Unit seems to be in good condition for its age.

Includes original owner’s manual and power cord.

It measures approx. 18″ x 12″ x 5.5″

Please see photos for additional detail and feel free to ask questions. ” Link
