I bought the rm1x this last weekend, and had to call in sick on Monday.

I was looking for a tankproof sequencer that I could do live sets with, and I found it. No more dealing with Winblows software.

The presets are okay, which is still better than most - I noticed that some of them were blatant ripoffs of classics (I swear I heard snippets of "Reach Out" and Optical's "Blue Monday" rmx in the DnB presets), which is good because it shows you the quality of the tones. The synth tones are a bit weaker than the drums. In my case, I don't need the synth tones because I hook the rm1x up to my Access Virus. But, the drums are pretty cool. The realtime control is a dope feature - I can't get enough of the Cutoff knob.

The rm1x's design seems to be pretty sturdy, and the user interface is really easy, quick, and functional. The only thing that I question are the knob's longevity; they don't seem quite a sturdy as my Virus's. Composing is easy. If you have a loop in your head, you can just place it in a track, tweek it, and build around it. Hours later, you understand why your girlfriend hates you. ;)

For the $, this little beast delivers above and beyond what I expected.

When we got our rm1x, we accualy used it in a gig the day we bought it. But since then ive found it to be a very handy and useful. The presets are nothing that i would use of course, but this little box does sooo much that i allways wished other sequecers did. The synth sounds arent that impressive but the drum sounds are handy, The effects are kewl as well. I just like the fact that its such a realtime machine, and this little guy is great for working the crowd pattern wise.

I can use it as a drum module, but i sequence all my other synths. I dig the step write on this thing very much! Much more then other sequencers ive delt with. I work with computers also so when i come home from work the last thing i wanna do is look at a computer screen with cubase. So this guy is defanetely a good break from that. Its defanetely great for breaking down sequences, minimizing then maximizing. Going from simple to complex and all under your control. I think its great machine.

I recently received this unit, which i purchased from <a href="">Sam Ash music</a> for $650. I have previously been using Cubase VST for my sequencing needs, but I think I'll be switching to the the rm1x (as soon as i figure out how :-] )- mainly because hardware is less likely to crash in the middle of a live set.

I still am baffled by the majority of the rm1x's features, but so far I have been utterly impressed by the wide range of sounds and effects it offers.

I look forward to using this unit in a live setting- and I hope some day I am able to figure out how to fully make sense of the included documentation.

I highly recommend this piece- it is truly some bad-ass shit. Now if I can only resist the temptation to steal the amazing preset styles it comes with :-). A very powerful unit indeed! Makes Rebirth look like a casiotone. Looking forward to using it in conjunction with Cubase and my other gear.

I think the RM1X rules!! I've had it for a week now and I haven't had much time to play with it but it sounds great. I think I can only grasp like 20 percent of it's capabilities now and that I will never completely know all it's features. One missing point, I can't find a good pizzicato, like in faithless, Sash and all the others.

i think people thiking this machine has limitations, is people's lack of putting energy tno what they're doing, this piece is a gem , the more iuse it the more i like it, i find something newout every day, at first i loved it then i got a little tired of some things then i got more into it and i love it even more than ever now, it's truely amazing, i dont' believe you can mute things i memory, but you can always begin that part of the section on a later's not that hard in fact it's hella easy, the muting just makes it even more fun:) lots n lots of fun make a beat n just fuck around with it for hours:)
