I have the MP-7, which was meant to be the hip-hop model, and I'm making spacey, kraut-rock type stuff with it. It does all kinds of crazy time signatures, and like I said you can do real-time MIDI recording, so you're definitely not confined to 4/4 grid stuff.Zack McConnell wrote:@pricklyrobot: Command Station WAS an option, but I had this crazy notion it was only for techno like the RM1X. Total DURR on my part, I guess. Thanks for clearing up that misconception! I have heard that it's good but has a few nasty bugs, is that true?

It's very similar and actually does a few more things in some respects I think (more real-time MIDI effects for instance). You can combine pattern and song type sequencing and record in real or step-time so there's no reason why it should be limited to any particular style. What the QY has that the RM1X lacks AFAIK is the auto-backing mode. Neither the MPC or Command Stations have anything like that either.

Not trying to sell you on the idea but just thought you should know that it is very similar to the QY700. It's a good MIDI sequencer, I wouldn't dismiss it as an option.Zack McConnell wrote:But isn't it hard to do anything that's not techno or trance with the RM1X? Or am I stereotyping again?
Only if you find it hard to do anything that's not techno or trance in general.

You shoulda been able to get it to talk to your other MIDI stuff...
