“The Yamaha DX11 – successor to the more famous DX7 but with some crucial differences. Wheras the DX7, DX100 and all the previous synths in the DX family built everything out of Sine waves, the DX11 offered other waves like saw waves to construct much more gritty & interesting sounds.
But my personal favourite thing about the DX11 is its chip is incredibly close to the soundchip in the Sega Megadrive! So if you want to recreate a lot of the iconic sounds of Sonic 2, Streets of Rage & all the rest – this is the synth to do it,
The synth is all fully functional and in good condition since it’s older than I am, scarcely a mark on it. Its only flaw is the Ram battery has expired – all this means is that if it gets unplugged any user data doesn’t get stored. In practice you just factory reset the synth when you first turn it on (edit+16+32) turn off & on again and everything is working as it should.
I’ve been using it like this for several years, but after a few thin paycheques i’m having to trim down my audio gear & sadly that means this has got to go too. A Ram battery fix is a fairly easy job – i’ve done it before with another synth but never got round to it with this.
By the way this has a two pin power flex but includes a normal 3-pin Uk plug adaptor.”
