An 8-voice polyphonic digital synthesizer with a 49-note keyboard. Released in 1986.

The DX100 is a cheap and extremely tiny entry-level synth. Based on the DX7, it uses 4-operation Frequency Modulation (periodic modulation to be exact) as the sound generation method. There are no user-controllable filters nor effects, but an ADSR envelope generator (with an extra decay parameter) is available.

192 preset sounds and 24 user patches can be stored in the unit's internal memory. A breath controller input is featured, as well as full MIDI implementation which supports velocity and aftertouch. Different velocity responses can be assigned to each operator.
