Ive had the rm1x for about a year and cant help wishing the sounds were more of a match to the seqeuncer, when you make tracks with it they always end up sounding weak and lacking, souped up gs midi sounds and the more sounds you use in a mix the more muffled the sound gets, no bite i just got a korg triton but wish i had gone for the rs7000 ,if the rm1x had the sounds of the rs7000 without the sampler of course i would have happily paid another £200- for it, as a seqeuncer it is perfect as a sound scource it is weak.

Some of you people must be smokin crack if you think that this thing sucks. Let me tell you something. I started out with MC-505, bought 2 samplers SP-808 and DR-202. I use a pc, but i don't use that cubase crap yet, it's just too complicated. When you start using the RM1x it starts to make sense once you READ THE DAMN MANUAL, just like MC-505. You understand how music is made. People say that the presets suck, but that's only your opinion and it's because you don't know jack. I bought mine for 400 bucks and it's a bargain for what it's capable of. The floppy drive allows me to share data over the net and it's good storage drive. I also don't understand how people say that mc-505 sucks, i guess they never listened to sublime or beck cause that's what their music is based on (actually mc-303, but it's the same concept). Rm1x is great for breaks, dnb, jungle and it can come up with some wicked tunes, add couple effects with the sp-808 and you've got yourself endless hours of cool groove. I give it 4.5/5. Stop bashing this box, for the price you're paying what else could you get? some keyboard with organ sounds and couple drum beats. Rm1x can be tweaked till perfection, adding endless hours of fun. I like it as a drum machine, plus you get the melody and fxs and bunch of other crap, too much too list. But when i saw it, I wanted it and i got it. I can't wait to get my hands on it again, it's getting fixed right now, shift button stopped working. No big deal, i was still able to make some fat grooves and if i get tired of it, i switch to my mc or start messin with rebirth. Love this machine. If you don't like it don't buy it, but if you do get it now. Different strokes for different folks, not every equipment is good for everyone. I guess whoever didn't like must have been trying to make salsa with it and that's not what it's for. It's strictly techno box. You can easily make music similar to Kraftwerk with Rm1x. One bad thing about it is that mine is not working right now, but besides that it's something special. I'll never sell it, even for million dollars. Peace.

The RM1x is like a dream come true for me. A synth plus a sequencer within a machine for under 700 bucks?

The sound quality is awesome, and I'm not a computer geek nor a jet pilot (just not an idiot) and I figured out the rm1x COMPLETELY in about a month or two.

I love it like crazy, and I don't create dance music. It has a versatile voicebank that I use for jam, rock, jazz, techno, ambience, blues, ect.

None of the analog sounds sound analog. You can definitely tell they're digital smaples, but most of the acoustical sounds seem real.

Wouldn't sell it- It is too useful, versatile, and fun to work with.

I SOLD MY RM1X ABOUT A MONTH AGO TO FINANCE A COMPUTER SET UP USING REASON AND CUBASE. WILL SOMEONE PLEASE SHOOT ME. PREFERRABLY AT CLOSE RANGE WITH A LARGE CALIBER SNUB NOSED REVOLVER. REASON IS THE BOMB BUT I WISH I HAD MY RM1X TO SEQUENCE IT. REASON'S SEQUENCER DOESNT QUANTIZE LIKE THE RM NOR IS IT AS EASY TO INPUT THINGS CORRECTLY THE FIRST TIME. AND I WONT EVEN GET STARTED WITH CUBASE OR SONAR. I HATE SOFTWARE SEQUENCERS. SO NOW IM STUCK. CAN SOMEONE TELL ME THAT THE RS7000 HAS THE SAME PATTERN AND SEQUENCING SETUP AS THE RM. I DONT WANT TO BUY ANOTHER RM IF I CAN GET THE SAME MACHINE WITH A SAMPLER AND BETTER SOUNDS. SOMEONE HELP ME OUT.

i just came from making live in some countryside.. well.. i am totally blasted! i dont know i can do these things with my rm1x!

one tip i found:

go listen ALL THOSE thousands of phrases! they can be inspirational! then write down everything you liked.

now the fun starts:

take any section and just press play. press pattern swithc twice to see phrase screen.

now take your notes you made and jsut start putting phtrases on tracks. select track, turn volume down, assign phrase (take your time! theres no hush as volume is down) and then when the beat is right turn up volume (you can use mute also)

NO NEED TO CHANGE PATTERNS! all action inside one section! its very inspirational.. later its hjard to grasp what you did but i composed very harsh and catchy industrial LIVE using this apporach ( i didnt have a glue what i was doing.. it just come out so well and sexy.. just putting phrases and trying out effects etc)
