Sounds are good. Not special, but good enough for playing back midifiles and making quick compositions. The rest is excellent. I use it as my main sequencer. I also use Cubase. But this thing is far more intuitive. Immediate playing (lithium battery-back-up), patterns and big screen, make it all easy to use. When I compare it to Cubase, I can make a professional song in about half the time. And that is what you can call effective !!

WOW! This sequencer is the ultimate midi tool. I owned the RM1x for over 3 years and got quite proficient with it, but needed more. The QY700 is just that, and more. First of all, I can hardly believe how cool it is to have such a huge display screen...its like using software, no hidden menus and crap to scroll thru, its all right there in front of you. VERY NICE!! The inner workings of the QY700 are just amazing! Very tight and easy to work with. This is THE machine for anyone who wants THE best midi sequencer ever made. Its amazing that this machine is not that well-known. Probably cuz it was pretty pricey when it came out and still is very expensive to buy new. But if you get one used like I did for $650, you will be very happy! This baby is really worth hunting down. It may be the last MIDI sequencer I ever need to buy.

I wanted a box that had a sound bank of great factory pre-sets grooves & phrases. The QY-700 has many tasty phrases in a variety of genres and it's interactive. It's pretty easy to string these phrases together to form patterns and then chain patterns together to form songs as well as adding user recorded data.

I already have a Mac with Digital Performer sequencedr software. I like to fly a QY700 sequence to Digital Performer for further editing and refinement. Does anyone else out there do that? I would love to hear from you.

I've had this machine for about a week I did have the Roland MC80EX but experinced a lot of problems with it, random stopping and skipping etc. So I needed something reliable for gigs,the more I'm with this machine the more I love it! The sounds aren't top notch but there are some nice pianos,bass and brass sounds in there. I would like to hear from anyone who uses it live, to find out how they get by without a chain play facility like the MC80EX has. I do about 20 songs a set and because of the size of files only fit about 10 in the memory and once there QY files you can't preplay them as you can with smf.
