Hey webmaster, why are you always deleting my postings? Just like the one where i said that in my opinion it is limiting to speak of the RS as only a drumsampler? It is just as Yamaha said, a music production workstation, that works for everything. The soundset is for sure orientated more in the direction of modern electronic dance music, but throw in some orchester samples and you write the Nutcracke-Suite again.

I just got this 2 days ago. I got it for $1000. I pretty much mastered my Rm1x and this thing KILLS IT! THe sounds are SOOO much better, the drums tear apart the rm1x drums. The sampler is great. There are a few bugs but Yamaha is working hard and quick to fix 'em so I'm not worried about it. Whoever is thinking about getting one, just get it! Trust me.

Having learned my sequecing trade on the Rm1x, I felt all I needed to sound better was nicer sounds and a sampler. Now I've got it. This baby is velly versatile, you can do what ever you want to. In six months I'm bound to have some tasty tunes on my hands!

I went to the music store to get an MPC but majically ended up with the RS7k instead. I am very impressed thus far. I personally think it's nothing more than a rythm machine as I use it for molding drumloops and (will eventually use it for) sampled grooves. I haven't used the sampling feature yet but I can already tell it's worth the money. I spent about 12 hours in front of this thing after I brought it home and had to literally force myself to stop tweaking every sound I got my hands on. The greatest thing about it is the interface. Everything is easily accessable from the panel or not far from a menu button. Take time to learn every function as this can be one of those machines that you don't have to spend 3 hours to program sounds once you learn your way around. In fact it can be a quite powerful 'percussion workstation' if you will. Even with the enternal sounds you aren't *that limited. IMO it's not a groove box either (those things are shit, no offense)- this is quality gear for all of your percussive needs. The downfalls: learning curve a bit steep (don't let that stop you); The 8MB PCM card included can't store shit!; You can edit but not switch voices while playing a pattern (no biggie); and perhaps the biggest downfall of all... I haven't had any reason to return it and get the MPC!!!

I got one of these about 2 months ago. I really wasn't a groove box man but wanted a drum machine on super steriods and played with the EM-1 (Korg little goove box thing). I was excellent but severely limited and no sampler (but what would you want for $400 bucks). I got hooked and decided for a more serious workstation. So I went for the Yamaha (after playing with it in the store).

Result: Very pleased. It was worth the money. I use it for a scratch pad for composing songs and throwing a track behind (often keeping the RS7000 tracks). The learning curve was steep and I had problems at first by changing user patterns for one phrase only to mess up another pattern that used it. Arg (I'm smarter now:-) I played with the sampler, and it's fun but I don't use it enough to do a good eval of it. The internal sounds are just dandy and clean, I'm happy with them and intend to send them out to individual tracks when I get the expansion card (it's been released now). My only major beefs is I wish the pattern-chain was easier to use and had better tools for working with the pattern and where the Pattern fit in the chain when using "off" timings is a pain in the a$$. The job menu, works, but is very hard to know exactly where things are at (I write everything down to keep track of the song) and is cumbersome to jump back and forth to. Second I wish it would save current memory of what you were working on when you shut down. Surely technology has come far enough that they could have build in permanent scratch memory ??!! On the plus I am glad they use smart media instead of floppies, I hate floppies. Other than that. I LOVE IT.
