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 bought the RM1x knowing very little about it's full capabilities, but I use my Edirol PCR-M50 Midi Controller keyboard with it, and theres not many sounds I cant make, ie.. guitar, violin, drums and so on. All sorts of sound effects from cars to birds, wind and rain storms.
You can construct very complex songs or even create a symphony if you have a the talent.
But for the ones that cant think for themselves, there are the preset patterns.

I always built my tracks from a simple GM / XG sound set. Once the Idea is solid I recreate all my sounds from scratch. That being said I like the sounds from the RM1x for writting. Just plug in a midi keyboard and go. Once midi is solid use the Rm1x as a midi controller for inboard / outboard gear. Great Machine!!!!
For some reason noone ever talks about layering sounds....you want that kick fattened up....combine it with two other internal kicks, pan and tweek till right.

I've been an avid software user for a long time now and this box is the first hardware sequencer I bought, while I've hardly explored a fraction of what it can do, I've already managed to write simple patterns and play around with them in different ways, the interface is pretty straight forward I must say, much easier than I thought it would be, it's a lot more fun to use than any software sequencer I've tried so far, and the sounds inside it isn't so bad if you tweak them a bit.. All in all if you wan't a seriosly wicked hardware sequencer that's easy to use, effective, powerful and built like a tank instead of that plastic toy feel you get from an MC303/505, buy it, you'll find them for next to no money, I got mine in mint condition for under 200 bucks, a steal.

You MUST use it with a velocity-sensitive controller to hear what this machine can really do. The electric pianos are very decent, and the synth sounds aren't nearly as bad as the people on this thread will make you think. If you want realistic acoustic samples you should be looking at a Kurzweil.

A very bad machine the synth sounda are very cheap and sounds totally stoopid. The only thing thats good in this machine are the the drumsounds but if you would use for making complete tracks buy another machine maybe a korg electribe e & a with this both machines you have more fun. but don´t buy the new electribes they are totally grap.
