The RM1x is a great new pattern based instant dance music machine! It sounds great! The patterns are perfect and inspiring forms of trance, house, hardcore and more with tons of great analog-like sounds and drum kits. The RM1x also features plenty of effects, filters, knobs, and MIDI control. The patterns have a whopping 16 parts (that you can drop-in or out in real-time performances) for lavish and professional productions. Making dance music has never been easier!

For those of you who want to get a little deeper into creating your own tracks, patterns and sounds, there is more. As if the awesome preset patterns aren't enough for you, creating your own 'phrases' is easy. You can modify a phrase's variation, instruments, sounds, tempo, filtering, LFO, and effects until you've morphed it into something of your own. Then store it into one of the 50 user patches. Creating an entire song is also pretty easy. Knobs, mutes, and patterns can be changed on the fly or meticulously programmed in. For the best all-in-one music box that will make you famous for a day - chose the RM1x over the rest! It is used by Apollo 440, Crystal Distortion, and Signal Electrique.

I found the thing really quite unfathomable but I have a couple of tunes recorded on minidisc somewhere for posterity.

I've had the pleasure of using the RM1X and an Electribe ESX-1 side by side. While the Electribe is a lot more fun and realtime tweakable (GREAT for live) and has sampling abilities, the RM1X is and will probably always be at the heart of my MIDI studio setup. Extremely easy to make and edit complex patterns and even whole songs. Internal sounds are awfully cheesy (though not always in a bad way), but the RM1X is a sequencing BEAST for my other MIDI synths and gear. Clock syncing is versatile and easy too for both master and slave setups (does MMC, MTC or beat clock).

After eyeing it for years I finally took the jump and bought one. It being a Yamaha, I was expecting some manual digging, but I still wasn't prepared for the baffling layout and structure. It might be great, and some obviously use it to great effect, but my brain just isn't wired like Yamaha's, so I sold it and got an MPC 2000 XL - a totally different beast, but at least its sequencer is easy to grasp without even glancing at any manual. If you can try it out and like it, this is easily one of the best sequencers in existence. Otherwise, just dream of what could have been and move on.

@ elias yeah you can !! it's pretty useful to sequence a bassline or something and then let your external synth play that sequence.
it's fun, especially for performances & jams !!
