Oberheim DX (DXa) 80's style beat!

Published on Jun 9, 2018 100 Things I Do

"This week some fun with the Oberheim DX. It's known as the DXa version, a few tweaks and factory MIDI! The Eventide H3000 also helps in the clip to liven up the sound!

I've always had my eye on either a Oberheim DMX or DX drum machine. They seem to be going for crazy prices at the moment, but I managed to find one in decent condition but was 110v (Its 240v in Australia) and a quite a few buttons were not working well.

So I spent this week cleaning it up and fixing the issues (also changed the voltage to 240 with a bit of soldering work), as the more eager eyed viewer might notice I also made some nice Tasmanian Oak end cheeks to lift the looks just a little (original ones are plastic!).

It was fun just seeing what the E3000 would do with the basic sounds!"
