klaus...thanks for the input. the sampler would seem to push the rs7000 ahead of the 7s in a competitive consideration, but from what i've read it has certain quirks (like large memory utilization) which might make the unit somewhat less competitive. i don't get to play with the sampler in the store, so i can't really judge its effectiveness. any opinion here? also, would you say the sound quality between the 7s and the 7k are equal? how about os problems? the 7s i've had access to all glitched on program change, which made the units unacceptable. i assume this has changed or will at some point after more work is done on the respective os's. what would say about the midi patterns between the 7k and the 7s? style for style which machines are better? is it possible to say one has an advantage in drum&bass while another has an advantage in, say, minimal tekno? right now i use a rm1x+an200+dx200+mc505 groove box to produce the real icey tranzambient with a hint of drum&bass. i sample the mix on a sp808. would any of the new machines provide an advantage over this setup for what i do?

Astronomer, the MP7/XL7 are good, better than that old MC505, but it lacks of the sampler the RS has, and the big display and few other goodies. I would say, MP7/XL7 would add nicely to the RS, but they are not better. What you like and want and NEED more, RS or MP/XL-7 is up to your personal wants and needs, which brings me to "Midi", why do you rate this machine so low? It is not for you, fine, but because it doesn´t fit your needs it is a bad machine? Nooooo. In this way your rating is rather unfair. And no, there is no rack-version of the MOTIF. Alternative could be for you a CS6r, which offers some of the MOTIF/EX-sounds, plus it has a phrase-sampler and a very good arpeggiator inside.

Rocksteady live party box, aswell as a deadly soundmodule! Beats a mc505 with a giant leap ahead.. asfar as the midi sequencer that is... mc505 has a better audio generator but a crapy midi engine!

But you really have to digg deep inside this peace of art, to get grip over the machine. Great mixing capabilities and lovely crunchy lofi sounds too :)

Got one a few month ago, use it now for all my live-perfomances. Great sequencer to gig with, like RM1x on steroids, and i mean LOTS of steroids...:)

Big machine with big features for app. $US 1000...bangs the crap out of other similar products. Go, test one and be convinced to get on e for yourself. I did a 1 to 1 comparison between RM1x and RS7000 drumsets...the drumsets on the RS, kicks the RM1x-ones to the moon, that´s how much punchier they are!
