Yamaha Reface DX Product Description
Yamaha Reface DX FM Synthesizer
DJkit is now stocking Yamaha’s reface DX, the pioneering FM synth that offers an array of nostalgic features within a modern control.
The reface DX is battery powered and includes fantastic quality inbuilt speakers. This adds to the vintage feel of the hardware but also promotes portability, allowing DJs and composers to work at home, on stage, in the studio and anywhere in between.
Although the reface DX has some vintage features, it is USB and MIDI compatible, meaning that every DJ can use this gear with their preferred device. Yamaha have also kept the DX up to date by making it compatible with Soundmondo and Yamaha reface software – to allow DJs to prepare and share sets with friends all over the world.
The reface DX takes inspiration from the DX7 Synths first released in 1983. By playing and producing with the range of classic DX pads, DJs have access to twelve different algorithm combinations. As the DX synth is a four-operator synth, it is an intuitive user interface. The interface provides a stripped back approach to synth design that is only found in the most innovative pieces of hardware.
This portable, streamlined synth with it’s classic engineering will bring a taste of the legendary late 80s, early 90s to your tracks and sets within the format of a modern, practical piece of hardware.

Yamaha Reface DX Bundles
A new mobile instrument generationIt started as a sketch of a young Yamaha design team: Under the concept name “reimagined interfaces of classic Yamaha keyboards” the group presented a series of four compact instruments, in which every single one celebrates the personality of a legendary Yamaha instrument – but with a character of its own reimagined for today’s ‘on-the-go life style’. The concept also integrates a web-based sound exchange between musicians and allows a cooperative sound design. With the introduction of reface, this vision becomes reality.
Inspiration guaranteedAt home, in a studio, in a park or on a train – the compact design and the powerful integrated stereo speakers allow inspiration in seconds – without any equipment to set up. Creativity can be realised anywhere: Thanks to the battery power, all reface Mobile Mini Keyboards are ready at any time – even when there is no power socket nearby. The setup is done in seconds, even the connection to notebook, iPhone or iPad for the recording and saving of sounds.
It’s (not) a toy!All four reface models are presenting themselves as a creative toy for sound design. But despite their compact design, they are professional instruments that are inviting to play. All models feature Yamaha’s brand new ‘HQ’ Mini-Action keyboard with 37 keys (3 octaves). The user interfaces were designed separately for each instrument introducing features such as drawbars for the reface YC organ and the capacitive Multi-Touch surface on the reface DX.
Discover and share sounds onlineAll four reface models offer a rich potential for creative sound design – and the opportunity to get in touch with the whole world: With Soundmondo, Yamaha created an online hub connecting the reface community all over the globe. Soundmondo offers creative possibilities to create, share and discover sounds. The connection is established intuitively using a special Web MIDI technology for Google Chrome. As soon as a reface model is plugged in, it offers the possibility of direct synchronisation. Voices and set lists can be stored in a private area as well as shared with the community. reface iOS App for iPhone and iPadQuick and easy storage as well as management of sounds with iPhone and iPad: The free reface iOS app for Apple mobile devices makes data transfer extremely simple. A name, a picture and multiple tags can be applied to stored voices; they can be sorted in different ways as well. Search functionality is also included. Using a set list, voices can be arranged in a specific order and recalled one after the other. Another impressive feature is the possibility to exchange voices using QR codes: A distinctive code can be generated from any stored voice and can then be shared using the different options available with iOS. It can for example be sent via email or read using the camera of another iPad to import it into the app.
