This thing is great fun. Admittedly best used to trrigger other synths, nonetheless does that extremely well. Now, lets be honest the internal sounds when edited a little aren't all shit ( though there is some doo doo there). However, really, the sounds arent earth shattering. I'd like to see how this machine compares to emu's xl-7. Of course the yamaha rs7000 is also coming. So, bigger fish are entering this pond. But this bad boy gets the sequencing done, and with a dos format floppy drive its easy to trade off with this and a software application.

The thing holding this back from being an all time classic is its sounds. But, I do dig some of the ethnic clanky sort of sounds. All in all a good machine to rock on. Add a rackmount sampler and a few synths and you dont have to apologise to ANYBODY cause you'll be bad as hell.

This box is amazing. Unlike most of you (I'm guessing) I play and write metal (not Metallica-esque bullshit). Anyway, in my music I integrate metal with electronic sounds because i don't have a band (for this project). And this thing is amazing for that. The sounds do need a bit of tweaking but come on it's better than having to deal with a real drummer and bass player (two of the stupidest breeds of musicians out there).

Regardless, this box is amazing, especially for the price.

Yeah, the raw sounds are somewhat weak. But, use the rm1x in a mix with say a planet phatt and an mc-505 and you won't notice. I'm making really strange mixes with the three and sampling with an sp-808. (Later I run the samples up to a PC and acidize them.) The only thing I can want in addition is a planet earth for the ethnic beats. Somehow I'll get one. I'm also going to put a rs7000 on layaway asap. Of course, things are getting a little crowded.

I bought an rm1x a couple of months ago. It has its good points and bad. The sounds are basically shit. You can edit them to a certain point but I really dont like the sounds that much. I really bought it for the sequencer. The good thing about it though is that it will be a lot of peoples first piece of gear and even though I dont love it to death as many of you do, I understand what it is good for. you learn how to program on this thing if you never have before. Now I know about measures and loops and patterns and other shit like that. Im gonna get a tone generator anyway so I wont need the internal voices anyway. Use it for what its good for. The sequencer. Although you can get out mediocre to good tracks with it. I (personally) think the sounds are whack. Kinda sounds like some crap from circuit city or something. BUT, add a little reverb blah blah blah and you get some decent sounds. you DEFINATELY need a tone generator though. Great for beginners and for sequencing other gear. whoever says this box sounds great needs a hearing aid. I personally think the mc 303 sounds better but thats just MY opinion.

no doubt about it. in comparing the RM1X with any hardware sequencer the RM1X beats all. endless equencing and phrase editing in realtime and enough sounds to go more than enough.

when finished practising replace the RM sounds with a hardware sampler and you've got a very powerfull music studio.

very good machine very bad sounds . ok drums ok bass ok synths.
