Synthstuff Yamaha DX5

Time for some Synthesizer curiosities again…I recently got a Yamaha DX5 in the studio to replace the good old rusty DX7 which was falling apart. A DX5 is a cheaper version of the gargantuan giant DX1 (which only 140 or so have been manufactured). Build in 1985 in Japan its basicly just 2 DX7’s packed in a GIANT board.  This thing is HUGE, the biggest synthesizer in the studio right now (not as big as the Rhodes Chroma but that one has been gone for a long time). Anyways nothing much exciting going on here except that it looks supercool and the keyboard plays really smooth. Here are some hot pix and a sound snippet of me jamming around on this thing through a Moog MF104 Analog delay:

True Fact: A DX5 could fit about 8 DX100’s in its case!
