One of the offsprings which came after the enormous success of DX7. Not that mighty and large and famous, but the sound... The heart of the sound is still the same Yamaha's chips and John Chowning's phase modulation of sine wave operators (correct - they misinterpreted it for frequency modulation which is much messy with harmonic content and has slightly less bright sound). Also this 4-operator littluns (DX11, 21, 100) are a little bit easier to program than their 6-op biguns. Still use it, still rocks, but a bit tired of programming now. Sounds even greater with effects, guitar pedals particularly. So if you want that 'Neo-Tokyo 2021' (1986) sound - that is the way to go! And you'd better forget about factory presets - no cheesy rhodes' whining in the future! PS: It was my first synth, heh. Have some fond memories, so it's hard for me to be objective ;)
