One of the most underrated synths out there
teeko 25.09.2019
Bought this one about a year and a half ago and since I've used it in every track I've made (over 20 tracks). I think it's one of the best price-value purchases an artist can make at the moment and I truly think its original retail price was also not out of the ballpark, like many felt because of the size format and mini-keys.

Let's start from the mini-keys. They're hands down the best mini keys I've laid my hands on. They feel great and not cheap and mushy. I often, despite owning a quality master keyboard, end up playing other instruments with this keyboard. The pitch stick is also really good, has a great feel. The build quality is really good as well. It sure looks a bit like a toy, as it looks like a miniature FM-synth, but don't let that fool you. This one is made to last.

Then the sound. I personally think 4 operators hit a sweet spot for most. It's simple enough to actually understand what you're doing, but deep enough for creative patch making. Also they've done pretty good job with the interface - it's easy to read and fairly easy to work with. The touch strips work surprisingly well, although I can't like, sliders would've been better. The included effects are also surprisingly good, although some of them could've used 3 parameters instead of the two. But they're definitely something one can and will use, especially as you can have two of them simultaneously. Oh, and it outputs stereo audio.

If there's anything to complain, I'd mention these: the speakers are something I would have removed. No use at all for those. It boggles my mind why Reface DX has only 32 memory slots for patches. Even doubling that would've made a HUGE difference. With an instrument this inspiring and easy to use, you fill up those slots in no time with sounds you want to use in multiple occasions. A dedicated offline editor for Windows and MacOS would've been nice. Luckily there is a third party (free) option: CTRL. And also via that program one is able to store patches on hard drive. But keep in mind, this is not done by Yamaha, that's my point. But other than these, it's a magnificent 4-op FM-synth.

Tämä on hyvä
Bluesmies 22.06.2019
Tämä on jo kolmas Reface minulla. Näistä CP:ssä oli laadukkaimmat soundit, mutta siinä pienet koskettimet haittaavat soittamista. YC:ssä koskettimien pieni koko haittaa vähiten, mutta soundi on laadultaan vaatimattomin. DX on näistä ehdottomasti monipuolisin. Soundmondosta saa ladattua paljon muiden tekemiä soundeja, joita voi sitten itse viilailla. Kokonaan uusien soundien rakentaminen näyttää suhteellisen suoraviivaiselta, mutta vaatii jonkin verran perehtymistä. Erityiskiitoksen saavat soundien tallennusmahdollisuus, nauhoitustoiminto ja helppokäyttöiset efektit. Jos hankkisin vain yhden Rafacen, olisi se ehdottomasti tämä. Kaikki toimii Yamahamaisen jouhevasti ja luotettavasti. Voin lämpimästi suositella.

Lovely portable instrument
Gusztav 11.09.2015
Since I am a freetime keyboard player it always gave me headache that I couldn't easily take my instruments with me for longer holidays or business trips - where (in a hotel) you often have more free time and less things to do than at home. So I was eager to put my hands on one of the Refaces and price-wise I considered the risk (of the instrument not being so usable) to be reasonable.

I can happily report that I am very satisfied with the purchase. Yamaha just cut out the right balance (for me), the size, the weight, the mechanical durabilty and the feel of the keys and controls are just right - good enough for serious playing. Even the mini keys can be well played with a big hand, though it's a bit tougher with both hands. It boasts some very serious sound, while nothing is overdone and the instrument remains very portable. The built-in speakers don't distort, but are not very loud and cannot handle lower registers - so headphones or amplification is recommended for the joy.

The human interface is surprisingly good and easy to use, the touch controls exceeded my expectations. The connectors are professional in size and variety, even the headphones jack is the 6.3mm version. There is no noise - it could even be used for stage purposes, save for the limited number and size of the keys (but, having MIDI, the DX sounds can be played on normal keys too).

I haven't tried the accompanying iPhone app yet (I need to order a cable), but this is the only instrument of the 4 Refaces that can store sounds itself too.

It also has a usable looper that can store 30 minutes of music (limited by the 8-note maximum poliphony!), but the recorded loops cannot be stored after the instrument is switched off, and the sound cannot be changed for the next layer of recording. Or, it can be changed, but the sound of all layers are changing at once.

I think however that at this price point the keyboard delivers enough, even exceeding my expectations. I really enjoy bringing it everywhere with a good headphones, running on 6 AA batteries.

Before purchasing, I hesitated which Reface I should select and bought the DX for a few reasons:
- it is an FM synthesizer I never had and is fun to learn (I already had a piano and a Hammond organ)
- but it also has (pre-stored) electric piano sound and 8 notes poliphony, which I prefer when studying music theory
- it has a looper
- it has 4x8 internal storage places for storing sounds (the only one of the 4 Refaces)
(however, you can always store sounds in the iPhone/iPad apps)

Considering that it was a blind purchase, I'd never tried the instrument before, I am quite happy I did buy it and can easily recommend it to you.

amazing sound in a great form-factor
Doggonador 26.04.2021
Im loving the Reface DX. Its sounds are inspiring, ranging from cheesy 80s EP-Sounds to modern aggressive-distortion-killer-synths. First ever FM-Synthesis-Device for me, so cant compare it to dx7 or anything of that kind. Even the presets are usable, what's barely ever the case.
It a range of build-in FX. Two of them usable at the same time, thats amazing!

I use it for producing techno as well as taking it on backpacking-trips.
I love the feel of the velocity-sensitive keybed. The size of the keys is a nice compromise for me.
The integrated speakers have a clear sound, thats pretty loud. The frequency-range doesnt reach very low though.

I dont like the interface-design with the ribbon-bands. It works well for programmig sounds but its not usable in a musical context. The ribbons are very jumpy and its impossible to play them smoothly. Its a pitty cause it would be awesome to have playable operators.

Summary: great sounding device in a compact form-factor. FM-Synthesis rules! big minus are the ribbon-band-controllers.
