Rascal: you mentioned that you can't upload sounds to the keyboard? I don't know the specs, but I thought there was a port on the back of the keyboard used for importing sounds from the computer. I've known cheapy keyboards that could do the same, so I figured atleast the DJX keyboard could hold some sounds and such from your keyboard. I saw some program a week ago that could manipulate the pre-recorded sounds somehow, and I'm pissed that I can't find the page anymore. Origionally I started this whole debate hoping for a simple yes or no answer, and obviously it all boils down to personal choice. Since I'm still a newbie to the scene I will go with the general concensus that the DJX is good for beginners and experts for the cost. Thanks for the info...
