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.

5 stars! Buttons are weak, no finger drumming. 2 Audio out:less hassle for me. The sounds are actually pretty useful with treatments. Sequencer is fantastic, 16 tracks. Song mode is amazing. 480 PPQ, step, realtime and grid mode recording can be mixed when making a pattern, quantize is great.Solid knobs and metal box a + Huge screen with many uses,16 tracks with midi out and you can see whats active easily. I had a few similar machines (505 an200 etc and this one is real unusual. Running synths and samplers with this and no need for a laptop really. Use 1 anyways and add a few vsts.

couple tips: i've been backing up the entire contents of the rm1x and saving the file as the date, already fit three backups on the same floppy. probably can fit many more. an untested tip: you can use the stereo outputs as 2 mono outputs without messing up effects like reverb, because you can pan the effects too. also, the two-band eq is quite useful getting more high's out of the percussion and shaping boring-sounding kicks a bit. but its true, many sounds are lame, thats alright though because there are many useable sounds too, you just have to find them, like the 'noise' patch in SyMater

I bought one several years ago i thought it had some potential, but after some intense geeking, i found this darn thing can get it done. Pre & post midi production is a standard for this unit , Some of the lead patches(SyMaler) make my talk box sound down right funky & nasty. I use a midi guitar controller , it responds better than other units that i have used, and if you have some teeking skills you can make this [beep] er jump through hoops. Yamaha has a fan for life here.

Good point, theborg. Perhaps I'm just not using it to its strengths. I've got some other modules; perhaps they'd be great to control via the RM1X.

fantastic groovebox depending on what you're trying to achieve. if you're looking for a hardware seq for techno, then my friends the rm1x is a superb solution. im saying this with the implicit understanding that your studio will slowly expand. but there is nothing stopping you from getting creative and doing entire sets with this thing alone, especially if you're going for a sort of hardish, distorted sound. it has plenty of distortion algorithms to play with. and when you want cleaner sounds get a jv1080 and control it from the rm1x. is that so hard jess? :D
