I am from the old school of hip hop where people used just an akai s-950 and an sp-1200 drum sampler or an alesis hr-16 to control and sequence the akai.I hate i repeat hate computers i just want to turn my equipment on and go and not have 500 screens and plug ins to run thru so when i researched the yamaha qy-100 i saw tha it had what i needed to make banging hip hop and r&b tracks i like it simple just download the manual 2 to 3 weeks before you get it study it and when you get it home in 1 nite you should be able to make good beats has internal mixer like the mpc no eq of course its very simple the most dificult thing to master is the quantize functions for hip hop producers trying to get on that sample free tip this is is get a cheap midi keyboard to trigger your notes i use it to trigger my samples on my korg esx-1 sampler easy way to make those fire dr.dre scott storch synth hip hop tracks and you can run vocals or guitar thru its effects come on man i make the hottness on this thing just study manual its worth it.www.

I was only looking for a decent stand-alone, 16 trk sequencer and the qy100 was the only one on the market. Period. It beats out my 8 trk on-board, old T-1 Korg big time. Sequencing technology has come a loooong way in 15 years. This is a lot of bang for my buck, Would be nice to have a larger screen though. At 55, my eyes aren't what they used to be. Have to keep it proped up on a mic stand W/string&tape infront of me. Thinking of designing a helmet attachment etc.. But, I really, really love it!!

I would have to sya I love more than my old QY20 but it is tricky to use if you dont read the manual or have alot experiance using these types of gadgets.The sounds I hear are editable but I have yet to figure out how?The effects seem to be only usable for the audio input and not the sounds.Anybody know how to apply insert effects to internal sounds on this unit????I like to have a overdrive effect applied to the overdrive guitar sound,wouldn't you?All in All the unit is great and the smart media slot makes those 32,000 note capacity blues go away when you start saving to 128mb media!!oh yea!the audio input makes for a singers scratch pad dream and the fact that I can route midi thru on the sequencer(remember the qy20 and how it would not allow you to midi thru??).That feature is indispensable since it can be used as a midi sequencer for tone modules and samplers with a midi piano or keyboard.I give this a 4 since it has great features over QY20 but has no real edit or effects apply for the internal sounds unless you have XG compatible midi keyboard like the CBX-K1,K2,or K1-XG that have XG specific functions.

I sold my QY700 to get this QY100 and Im totally stoked. Cant hardly believe there is so much power in this tiny package. AND it runs on batteries! yes! that's just what i needed. Its perfect for the micro gear case. It doesnt have all the features that my QY700 had but the footprint is tiny in comparison and it DOES have all the features that I need. Im very pleased with it. I highly recommend that you study the owners manual very well because this unit has many multiple functions per each button and you will want to know it in and out. Too cool.
