Oberheim SN A33918
via this auction
"The DSX is a polyphonic sequencer made to interface over the Oberheim Parallel Buss with OB series synthesizers and DMX drum machines, however it can also be used with any CV/Gate equipped synth. It features 10 tracks with a 6,000 note capacity. In addition to the Oberheim Parallel Buss output, the DSX offers Clock in/out, 8 CV/Gate outputs as mentioned above, Tape Sync in/out, and Cassette Memory in/out.
It includes the latest OS (v3.04), and all aspects I can test work perfectly; the only thing I cannot test is the Parallel Bus connection to an Oberheim keyboard, as I don't have an Oberheim keyboard to test with, nor do I have the cable itself. The power cable is included.
Cosmetically, there are a few superficial scratches, a discoloration and 2 holes on the left end cheek from a previous owner who had mounted something on there, and some mild screw corrosion on the back panel. Overall it is in excellent shape for an item of its age.
There is now a software program available called DSX Hack (Google "DSX Hack" and you will find it) to assist in programming the DSX using MIDI files - I am the author of this program, and this is the device used in the development of the software (I have another DSX as well). Using DSX Hack, this becomes an easy to program, awesome 8 channel CV/Gate sequencer!! I will throw in a free copy of DSX Hack ($40 value) as well - once the sale is complete and you receive the item and confirm all is well, I will email you registration details for the software."
