i bought the rm1x a little while back. im pretty happy with it but the sounds suck. quality wise and selection wise. but of course who uses one synth for awhole album or song anyways? ive tried doing some live pa stuff. i have to say changing sequences isnt smooth so if you want to do live live as in nonstop. i dont think it does that too well. as a controller yeah it does work. ive read the new emu boxes can function as controllers. the rm1x does work but i find it doesnt have a real time grid sequencer that can run at the same time while the other channels are playing. i like the pattern modes on the korg boxes. it would be nice to see them release a high end sequencer box. i dont know if the rs7000 can do real time xox sequencing either.

I've had an mc-505 and my roomate had an mpc 2000 which I used more than he did. I've also fooled with various other hardware sequencers. The rm1x is the best of the lot in my opinion.

Its a well thought out, logical, expressive machine. I like to build tracks from scratch so its a godsend for me. This machine allows for a lot of real time tweaking and manipulation which is how I create my tracks.

I wish I could record on the fly but no hardware sequencer seems to offer this feature just yet. Too daunting for the processors perhaps.

I recommend this box highly. i own other yamaha gear and i'd like to mention that all the new yamaha gear works really well together in a midi sense. you don't have to fool around with sysex messages or do a lot of mapping and shit. I tend to use my non yamaha gear to make sounds and then I use my yamaha gear to put it all together.

Not that the yamaha sounds are bad. People talk a lot of shit about drum sounds. Well, here's a little secret

Good drum sounds are the result of eq'ing, effects and compression. If you know how to engineer sound you can make even the cheesiest drum box sound bad ass.

I recommend the rmix highly. especially if you're the creative type and want to do something beyond four on the floor.

listen to my songs at They were all sequenced with the rm1x.

Sorry but I have to say...The RM1X sounds are terrible even after tweaking.Where it shines is in the sequencer dept.I may pick up another one just for that.I dumped it after a couple of months and got a CS2X for Yammy synth sounds.

it works good for sequencing but mine will have midi errors sometimes and mess-up.and everytime i set all my midi control numbers they get erased upon power-up.and sometimes the arpeggio goes haywire!...i tried many atempts to correct the problem but nothing fixes it..the keys after time get worn and dont trigger right,causing hard sequencing and ability to write tracks..sometimes they dont work when you push them at first and sometimes they will do a double note when i just want one note!the internal sounds are a joke!..completely horrible..effects are fair..the lcd looks like a toy and gets irratating..i just used it for sequencing for a while and am very happy to get rid of it...

The RM1x is a great machine. The sequencer is very powerful, and the way the machine is set up very well. When I first bought it, I had a basic grasp of the way this machine worked, and all of the functions, in about a day. If you have used yamaha stuff before, it won't be too hard to get used to this machine at all.

You can't beat this machine for the price. That's all I need to say really, but I will keep going.

I find that this machine works very well for making gritty DnB, which is why I like it. Gotta like yamaha's amp simulator effect.

Here is what I don't like: The panning for voices is not very distinct, it helps to clear up the mix, but at first I thought that the panning didn't work at all. The sounds are kinda flat, but all you need to do is tweak those knobs, and that problem is solved. Also, if you are producing cd's, you will be processing your stuff anyways, which takes care of flat sounding gear. That is pretty much all that I don't like about the machine. Most other stuff I have has a longer list.

Hope you appreciate my 2cents worth
