Well, this is a beast i think. The preset are not good at all but are not for use as they are. You need to make your own "sound" to make them sounds cool. The presets are just as potential templates so, it doesnt matter how they sound. I love this hardware sequencer, it does manny things.....and so simple to manipulate it....good interface....WTF about keys? they are only for help you not to sing like piano on it..come on ppl!! IMO, the Rm1x is a great tool for studio and specially for live performances. Music is so simple if you have an Rm1x. Buy one NOW, doesnt matter the price!!!

pros-powerful seq. good effects. nice interface. cons-lame presets(one pattern is a dead on prodigy rip off),flat sounds

the manual is well laid out much better than most i've read. while hard to handle at first the interface is a breeze once learned which also is better than most similar groove boxes i've used. the 505 looks the part but like most roland gear i own(307,303,sp808,etc..) its hard to get the in depth features out of it. if your expeirenced with boxes you'll be layin out your own tracks the first night. i'll give this a five based on a value versus power. far from pricey its just a great value for what it is. if your about boxes u need this it could drive your entire set up.

I had this for a few months. My opinion is that it's a powerful hardware sequencer with good drum samples and passable sound samples if you spend some time editing them...but ultimately it suffers from Yamaha's notoriously bad interfaces. Very anti-intuitive. If you don't mind staring at a computer screen, most packages like FL Studio, Orion, Reason, etc, can meet its potential and are alot easier to be productive with. If you don't like software, I still think there's other hardware seqs out there more fun to use with better onboard sounds and effects, the MC808 for example.

Bought this machine couple of months ago for 200Euro. It´s a 16 track hardware sequencer, indepth editing assignable knobs, and what I think is more important you can play around muting and soloing your individual instruments / phrases in real time. I finally feel myselve a musician again playing music, rather then producing and watching a computer screen moving coloured boxes around. I use it to sequence a EMU sampler and a Nordlead. The box itselve has been marketed as a all in one groove type of box, so there are some sounds in it, which IMHO are not very good, but, I do find them usefull as scratch book as they represent a lot of electronic sounds that are out there.
