I just picked up a second hand RS7000 for $475, and it is pretty amazing. I don't have a manual yet, but I've used enough gear to get a pattern in their, remix it, get in nice and close with the note resolution function for some rolls and 'human' timing touches, tweak the filters, ADSR envelopes, and effects, and well...this thing rocks! I've owned an ESX-1 and an MPC1000. The MPC is garbage compared to this. Sorry folks...just is. Any sampler that can't pitch shift in real time and can't time-strech is garbage and cannot call itself a sampler with a straight face. This unit is everything that the MPC isn't...hands on, with loads of effects and loads of knobs for real-time tweaking. I intend on hooking this up to my Machinedrum and my Indigo 2 and going to town. For awhile, I was lamenting the fact that I sold the ESX, and was considering buying is again since they are so cheap new nowadays. Now that I have the RS7000, there is no way in hell I would do that, not to nock the ESX, but this thing is just fantastic. It's got amazing specs, and in terms of price-point, is the only wise decision one could make in purchasing a table-top sampler/sequencer. I've done my homework in this, y'all, and it has paid in full. Do yourself a favor and snag one of these. You can easily get one for under $600 used.

Honestly, if u make complaints about not getting the right sound out of this box or say the internal sounds are lame. Sell it and buy an instant preset sound machine like the Roland.

You can get the sound you want with this. The sequencer is awesome, the live possibilities are great and the sampler is good aswell.

What i would still like to see changed is better LFO implementation and the possibility to switch record mode on/off even when in realtime/overdub recording.

Besides that....no complaints, best devic in my studio!

Get one and have fun...they are getting cheaper and cheaper second hand.

I love this box but, hate Yamaha. Why, how? Cause the RS7000 is the second time I shelled out a grand to Yamaha only to have them drop the price. It happened to me in early 2000 with SU700. I could choke them!

If I could give anyone advice, wait 2 years before buying Yamaha gear. On the 3rd year the stop making it. Usually on the 2nd year of production there is that price drop.

I agree with pretty much all the positive reviews on the RS here. Just wait if you value your dollars. It makes me mad cause it adds up to upgrades for the RS. To other gear I could have bought.

Awesome box, the merge of RM1x/SU700/A3K is truly superb. However, watch out for the cowboys who are putting the aieb1 expansion boards (out of the old a3k samplers that no one wants anymore) and selling them as prime expanded meat, it only works with the aieb2. You have been.......

I think 99% of the "buggy as hell" complaints are directly related to incompatible RAM simms and old OS versions.

Try removing the memory expansion, update the OS to 1.2, do a factory reset, and then get better RAM! Not every old SIMM will do, so try a shop that guarantees their RAM will work in the RS7000.
