The 16 parts per song is a bonus! It means that you can change your fully edited song to take off in any way of 15 other directions just by pressing a button (assuming you have programmed it in of course). Far from limiting , it is expansive.

I just bought an RS7000 after reviewing it in a music magazine I write for. I have use dit extensively on my new album, and am delighted with it. ....although it was a steep learning curve at times. I think people get a bit lost in the world of gadgets,a nd the main thing is ideas and vision. I've seen people produce the most amazing music on incredibly minimal kit - you don't need a great deal and this is very portable which is also a bonus. Baz www.psyburbia.mu

phillip...the one box that does everything is: the computer! problematic--absolutely: god help us all understand why some s/w runs like it does! sacrifices--my life at the keyboard! disapponting--oh yes: s/w crash! what'll i'll be doing with it?--depends on what it does with me! (when i get tired of music, i can always play go.)

right now i can play with the rs7000 and the mc909 and the emu xx-7 command stations all at the same time (as nobody where i shop seems particularly interested in any of them)...so, for the moment, i'd say that (despite its numerous flaws) the rs7k leads the pack as the mc909 is a s/w mess (who needs all the screen gymnastics) and the command stations (although sounding better) don't sample! it is, for the moment, the one box (other than the computer) that does it all...

Nero, if you want the "one box does all thang" go for the RS7000 but if you want the best possible sequencing available with best sampler, the I would definately recommend the QY700 as you suggest plus a killer sampler, either Emu or Akai will do nicely. As mentioned before, this combo would blow away the RS7000 completely. The RS7000 is powerful, but cannot compare to dedicated gear for sure. It is seriously aimed at the "dance" music market, but that doesnt mean it couldnt be used for other genres too. Its a trade-off and all depends what you need. Its convenient to have one machine that does so much, but its not really comparable to what youd get with the QY700 and a killer sampler. Not even close really. I hope that helps in your decision. Whatever you decided, try to look at all your options and go for what is best for you. One box doing everthing is problematic to say the least and will involve some sacrifices that you may find disappointing but it really depends on what you will be doing with it. Perhaps the sacrifices wont be noticed, but if you want the BEST of both worlds, "dedicated" gear is hard to beat.
