Sorry, I'll have to agree to disagree with the comments so far. I bought my RM1x a week ago and I've been amazed by its flexibility and sound. Sure, the sounds are not exactly what you would call earth shattering, but then as far as sample based synths go, the RM1x is streets ahead of the current XG stuff, just have a listen to the preset phrases and compare them to something like the 505. I have a setup of a couple of physical modelling synths and I use the RM1 to sequence everything on.

If your tired loading up your computer and blankly staring at the menus of Cubase then go and buy yourself an RM1x now, but please don't expect it to replace your higher priced synths.

well i had hoped that this box would be my next sequencer(to finally replace the great mmt8) and... it might be. i've played with it a few times and it seems alright but not everything i'd hoped. the first thing that struck me was the overall cheapness of the buttons. the box itself is sturdy and has a GREAT display but the buttons(esp. the mini keyboard) seem like they will go bad in no time. arragghhh!!! this is exactly the problem with the otherwise wonderful mmt8. i am espcially concerned about the cheapness of the mini-keyboard buttons since i had hoped to use the box as an all-in-one for portable use(and then replacing the internal sounds when back in the studio).

speaking of internal sounds... i'll compare it to the mc303 sounds since that seems to be the competitor. of course the sounds are crap compared to a "real" synth. some of the sounds are quite, quite good. but others seem to be only as good as the crap of a soundcard - strange. worse though is that you can not create new sounds only slightly edit the presets(filter cutoff, etc.)

also the lack of two midi ins/outs is pretty disappointing.

i'm starting to look at the mc505 now for my sequencing needs....
