DTronics DT7 has just made the Yamaha DX7 easier to use


DTronics has created a new hardware controller for the Yamaha DX7 that promises easy use and no menu diving.

With its tiny screen and layers of menu options, the DX7 was notoriously hard to program. The DT7 looks to do away with any on-screen programming in favour of a knob-per-function layout.

Not new to MIDI programming products, DTronics has also created hardware programmers for the Roland JX-3 and Alpha Juno series.

The DT7 will be available soon for €1249, and more information can be found on the DTronics website.

Key features:

  • Dedicated onboard software and processing
  • Firmware updates over MIDI
  • Support for different types DX-series
  • Provides a control knob for every parameter
  • Easily adjusts each operator's envelope generators, pitch settings, scaling etc.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
