Yamaha Keyboard "DJ" Button

Easy guys,

It’s been so long since I’ve poked my head in here but hope you’re all doing great. :laughing:

Some of you that went to school in the early 00’s will remember those Yamaha keyboards we had in music class - the ones where you could press the “DJ” button and get a whole load of tacky, Lex Lugerish samples.

I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get hold of that set of samples?

Specifically it’s the Yamaha PSR-280.

I know it’s a long shot but if anyone’s got any ideas that would be great.
Cheers DSF.

This might jog a few memories:

Not that model specifically but similar models are on gumtree for like £40 if you wanted to just buy one. Cash Converters or similar must have them come in every now and then?

Is that ‘DJ!’ sound the one Cluekid used in Weed Smokers?

i think that’s “beat this!” from afrika bambaata - looking for the perfect beat iirc

any excuse to post afrika bambaata :badteeth:

it’s basically this - but I was wondering if I could get audio files of the samples

you could just rip that youtube and get a crappy mp3… offlibertydotcom

If you go to your local secondary school they’ve probably got a few lying around and probably wouldn’t mind you sampling them.

just don’t forget to plug the keyboard in


waheyyyy well remembered
