The Yamaha reface DX is a brilliant portable vintage FM synthesizer. With a flick of a switch you can go from retro 80s to cutting edge modern sounds. Furthermore with vintage effects and 128 note polyphony you really do have one cool product.
The reface Dx gives you the ability to have huge control over the sound you want to achieve or create:
Simply by hitting EDIT you can go from snorkeling sounds to deep sea diving effects all using the special advanced edit features. Furthemore you can dial in the exact sound detail that FM synthesis is known for.
Using the Integrated MIDI Phrase Looper: capture song ideas or just jam. The integrated Looper lets you capture your performance and play it back. This is useful in a number of ways. First, you can use it to jam over top of a bass line or other ostinato part. Second, it’s a great way to dial in a sound by tweaking the panel while the Looper plays for you.
Packed with other great features:
2W 3cm stereo speaker system features a speaker system designed to “play right now!” The speakers utilize bass-reflex port technology, producing an unbelievably good sound from a compact speaker.
The battery system is perfect for those moments when you’re on the move giving up to five hours of continuous performance. The included power supply allows reface to operate without batteries installed.
The HQ-MINI keyboard was developed to achieve the best possible playing feel. Its shape is the result of evaluating the acclaimed FS keyboard from our flagship synthesizers and the sturdy, highly durable pianica keyboard. Thanks to the crisp feel of the keys and the smooth playability throughout their entire range, this is a keyboard you’ll love playing for a long time.
All reface models come with a standard MIDI breakout I/O cable when you want to play reface from a full-size controller keyboard.
The full sonic potential of the tone generator unfolds when connected to a PA system or a pair of high-quality, active speakers via built-in stereo 1/4″ outputs. There’s also a stereo 1/4″ headphone jack and a foot controller input for sustain (reface CP/DX) or expression (reface CS/YC).
You can even monitor through the speakers or headphone jack via a 1/8″ AUX IN.
Reface also features USB MIDI and traditional 5-pin DIN MIDI via an included adapter cable.
