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.

Bought one of Ebay recently after reading some reviews. Great piece of kit. Great fun. Perfect for just banging out some loops which I then multitrack. Really solid synth bass sounds and crisp drum kits. I found the interface no more ticky than some of the other kit I have, once you get used to it, it's easy. Get one if you can.

I like this unit above other like Remix devices, one reason...it has a wide range of Time Signatures, 2/4/, 3/4/, 4/4/, 5/4,...any type of Time Signature that one could want. Others that are similar in Time signature variations are the Akai MPC series.
The Rhythm has a very Fat very Musical sound. I looked at the Korg Electribe series, but the deal breaker for me was the limited variations of Time Signatures....it only had the typical 4/4.

I really wanted to like this sequencer. I have an an1x and I love it, I'm a fan of yamaha.
I gave the rm1x about a year. For some reason, the interface never made sense to me. I sold it. I've since got an electribe emx & it's a vast improvement for me.

The Yamaha felt less responsive and less intuitive. Neither is built completely solidly but the yamaha felt cheaper - the 16 white plastic buttons across the front in particular.
This has okay drum sounds, lots of them.
I think this sequencer has a place in history but it's somewhat obsolete.
But hey, to each his own.

I have bought one for producing Hardcore, Techno and others electronics generes.
With my Novation KS Rack is a beast! The factory sounds are very old-skool, but the sequencer is the best sequencer hardware i've seen! ;) If you want to make music without the computer, buy one of these! :)

I tried to midi a TR-505 rhythm composer with the yamaha Rmx1 but for some reason i am not getting a good output sound no matter what i try.I also midi the alesis sr16 to the yamaha Rmx1 and it worked fine.So can you tell me if the Tr-505 is comparable with the rmx1 or what i can do ?
