'If you need a single, portable, compact box that will do it all…there's really no competition'

'It has the depth to satisfy even the technically and musically most sophisticated user'

'The sampler is fast and clever'

'People are going to do great things with it.'

'Don't think for a moment that it will only suit dance artists; pretty much any electronic musician or songwriter could use what it's got'

'This really is a machine that makes light work of track creation'

'It's when you really want to get clever that this sampler really shines. The amazing Slice automatically cuts a sample into equally sized bits….the net result is that 'Sliced' loops respond to changes in tempo and alter speed without you having to do a thing'

'In terms of sheer impressiveness and fun, though, the RS's real-time controllability steals the show'

'The RS is lavishly supplied with knobs and switches'

'The pure 'synth' side of the RS is good, with lots of variety, from subtle and airy to industrial and hard'

'It's a powerful tool for composition, remixing, creative phrase sampling and live performance'

'The RS7000 is a beast'

'If you thought the RM1X liberated you in the studio then Yamaha's latest revolution in hardware sequencing will blow you away'

'Yamaha have simply surpassed all expectations'

'The Master Effects are the icing on the cake for the RS7000. They are quite simply awesome.'

'The sampler is a joy to use; the sound quality is crisp and clear and the speed of processing…is very fast'

'No compromises have been made here and - it's this that impresses me most - it is an all-rounder in every department'

'Rock solid timing, reliability and compact solution'

'You soon realise that you're in for a host of sonic treats'

'The new waveforms impress too, sounding fuller and cleaner than those on the RM1X'

'I found that the sliced up breakbeats used were well interpreted by the engine and the individual components formed from my break were spot on'

'Once you've got all the elements together it's a breeze to lay down your own impressive tracks'

'The RS7000 excels as a live performance tool'

'Allows for a fantastic live experience both sonically and technically.'

I had several ram problems by using many kind of cheap pc memory, so I bought certified ones at my music dealer and it's ok now. RS works also very find with my 128Mo smartmedia card.

Got mine last year. I love it, sequencer, once you get the grip about it, is easy as it can. I am laying down my ideas now faster than with the mouse in my hand. Usually i transfer them into Logic for the last final work and upload them back into the RS. Great work, Yamaha!

"but from what i've read it has certain quirks (like large memory utilization)"

???? The RS7000 problems with "memory utilization"????? Never experienced this with my RS, nor does any of the 586members of the RS-mailing-list.

I don´t know if the sound-quality of the RS is compared to the 7´s, i would say they are equal, but you shouldn´t take out of consideration, that you can always tweak on both machines the sounds the way you like them, plus the RS brings in a master-FX and track and master-EQ, which can spice up the sound again, if necessary.

I don´t know anything about the preset-pattern or their usefullness. I don´t use preset-pattern on my RS. The ones that are inside are usefull for any kind of modern music.

m1x+an200+dx200+mc505 well, seems to me, your setup is complete, you should add a sampler, like an EMU Ultra 5000 and some FX-units (Lexicon MPX200, BOSS VF1, Line6 box, Electro Harmonix etc.pp.). Or if you like more the all-in-one concept, get a RS7000. I use mine together also with a DX200 and a AN1x (big brother of AN200), they make a good match.
