“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.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“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.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

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.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“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.

“This is the vintage ‘DMX’ model programmable digital drum machine from “Oberheim”. The unit powers right on, and I really do not have a way to fully test the unit, and it is sold as is. When turned on, the screen reads ‘Oberheim Dmx, Press < > To Empty’, and sometimes with show an Internal Error message. The unit is in nice condition, with some tiny type scratches on the front, and the main display has only a couple of small scratches. 6 of the slide control tips aren’t original, and still slide nice and smoothly. The wood sides are nice and clean, and the edges are clean as well. I have taken a number of photos, and show a photo of the inside as well. Measures 18″ by 12″, and stands 5″ high at the back.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Now you can play every realistic, digitally-sampled Oberheim drum sound via your MIDI keyboard (Yamaha KX88), stand-alone sequencer (Roland MSQ-700) or both (see J.L. Cooper). You can also use it to save valuable voice-allocation space on your Fairlight or Synclavier! Need to tune the snare? No problem, just pop open the hood and turn the little gear-shaped trimmer on top of the corresponding circuit board! You will never again need to hire cocky professional drummers or cabasa players after you own this puppy.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“This is a November 23, 1983 DMX Drum Machine. I am the original owner and have the original Packing Inspection Report that shows the machine was inspected and shipped on November 23, 1983. Recently serviced and in prime working condition with new battery.
Not only is this an original machine in near mint condition, and with the original stock sounds, It has 8 additional cards that allow you to swap out the original sounds for custom sounds by Drumware. Also included are a couple of personal sounds that I sent them for sampling and E-Promming… One of which is a custom snare that I recorded while at Rumbo Studio A in LA. The studio had a 20 foot ceiling and we recorded the room mics at a about a height of 15 feet. Very crisp sounding chip.
PLUS, this machine has been customized with a stereo headphone jack and an output for a custom snake that takes all of the individual outputs of the drum and puts them in one cable. It is the blue connector on the back in the photo. I do not have the snake, but I’m sure it would be easy enough to find or build one.
Lastly, in addition to the stock sound chips, I have 20+ chips of various kicks, snares, toms, percussion and a noise burst.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

This item work just as it should when it was stored. When you turn on the power button it will display the message Memory full, data may be bad, press<> to empty. We did just that but after you power it off and back on. It will display the same message. We have the factory tape which you can see in pic 4 to reload the factory sequences. You can also see in pic 3 it has some paint specks on it. We think it should clean off but will leave that to the new owner.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

DMX, Oberheim @ 12 July 2011, Comments Off on Oberheim DMX Project Machine

” This auction is for my early ’80s Oberheim DMX drum machine. This came as part of a studio I bought in ’91. I record bands, so never really used it, although it did work well. Last time I tried using it, the sequencer wasn’t working and one of the buttons for the bass drum had come off. I removed the bolts that held in the board for the volume sliders and sound trigger buttons and stored the parts away for safety……. 10 years latter, I thought they were all in the box with the main part of the machine, but opened it recently to discover they were missing. I have searched in my usual storage locations and can’t find them anywhere.

I have no idea how easy this would be to fix, so is being sold for parts. At some point someone added DIN sockets on the rear panel for MIDI. I see no evidence that they ever got beyond adding the sockets, but can’t say for certain. ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

DMX, Oberheim @ 22 March 2011, Comments Off on Oberheim DMX

“I purchased this unit from the original owner and only used it in my home studio – it is in good working condition. It comes with a power cord and and a PDF of the Operation Manual on CD.

This unit has very few superficial scratches and blemishes on the outside of the case – except for the bottom panel of the unit, where there are lots of scratches – but for a unit its age, it’s in great shape.

This unit also has some buttons (approximately 4 or 5) that can be “sticky” when pressed/played, but everything still works. I was told these buttons need cleaning from time to time, which I believe have never been done in it’s 30 years. There’s a place in California that specializes on all things DMX, and I was going to have it serviced there a couple years ago, but I just never got around to it.

This place also does MIDI conversions and other cool stuff to the DMX – lots of people are doing this to their machines now to sync with their other gear. I preferred using the internal “feel” the DMX provides, create the beats and patterns on the unit itself, then sample and create loops in my DAW. If you’re interested in any kind of service for the DMX, you may want to reach out to Paul White at: Electrongate

This IS a Collector’s Item

I’m selling this unit simply because I’m downsizing my musical equipment collection – my close friends call my home studio a museum! I’ve been doing music for almost 30 years, and I’ve accumulated a lot of great stuff. But now as retirement age is looming on the horizon, I’ve decided to begin the process of reducing the amount of treasured pieces I own. I will be posting a lot of my vintage gear in the next few weeks, so please check out my other items – you might find something you like!

“Up for auction is a vintage Oberheim DMX Programmable Digital Drum Machine, SN B34608. It’s in good condition for its age. Internally it appears untouched and original. The wood sides have several screw holes that were added over the years to accommodate various mounting positions, but nothing that affects operation. I was able to do several basic checks and everything responded as expected. Switches and sliders are intact, but one of the sliders is missing the plastic cap.” Auction ended.

It’s easy to use. It took me a minute to figure out how to use the record function. But if you need help just email me.

This is still a great drum machine. It’s in great cosmetic shape and all the buttons and display work fine. There are no beats programmed so that part is up to you. It comes with two drum cards that I assume are for changing all the sounds in the machine, much like modern “expansion” cards.
