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.

super sequencer on the hardware format, very easy to use, awesome bass sounds, basic GM sound collection, OK effects, great tools if you want to modify the internal sounds, as well as creation complex sequence with midi time, delay, FX, so many people switch to computer base sequencers in this day but a lot of musicians around the world still find this unit a vital part of their rigs, Alex Jansik uses this unit live and recording

i prefer my qy100 and w7 for the interfaces, but i had one of these for a while and it's amazing as far as hardware sequencers go simply for the tactile control and the depths you get into with all the knobs and such. the onboard sounds are also quite fab and - as with most yamaha gear - are great for anyone that likes to get deep into sound sculpting. ditto the effects; those are what make me swear by yamaha in general.

orbit has it right, though - this is almost the rs7000 without sampling so if you can afford the rs7k and want sampling ability that's the better choice. if you have a sampler already all you're missing out on is a few additional effects.

I've had one since 98 and I'll keep until someone comes out with a better sequencer/interface. It's so intuitive. My RM1x drives my triton, EMX-1 and prophecy so it's excellent sequencing ability is now put to use playing decent instruments. The only way I'd sell it is to get an RS7000.

This box served me well for 10 years. I needed a reliable hardware sequencer, and this was more powerful than anything else on the market. The display, LEDs and buttons make the user interface very useable. The sequencer allows for a lot of editing, tweaking, etc. The disk holds many songs, and floppy disks are cheap. Whatever type of music you record, the sequencer will do it well. You can record all 16 tracks straight through, or do pattern-based sequencing. It can handle sys-x record, and all types of controllers, mono or poly pressure etc. MIDI or MTC sync works too! The on-board synth was a nice bonus, sometimes useful, with a wide choice of sounds, but I noticed overall the output is rather dull sounding, lacking crisp highs. I will use it to fatten up tracks or add some fx-type sounds, but I prefer my MIDI synths that have better sounds. Take Note: I never discovered any software bugs in this gizmo after using virtually every feature! This puppy is solid, and NEVER crashed!
