NOBODY KNOWS, HOW GREAT THIS LITTLE MACHINE IS. The Mod.-Wheel is amazing because with no other machine it's possible to programm such crazy and special patterns. THIS MACHINE ROCKS!!!!! ..and not (!) only for Rockmusic.. I use it only for Electronic. It's not as easy to use as a 909, you have to work with it to learn it. It's a Yamaha-Machine...

I love my RY30 this is more than a drum machine it is a great little synth. the sequencer options are great. for example you can program the filters in step time so this makes it really great for creating some radicall changes to the songs. I would recommend this drum machine to someone who wants to start making electronic music, but those not have the money to pay for all that new gear out there.

This is the 909 for the year 20xx. Filter,envelope expandable via cartridges and editing wheel.This is one of the most underestimated drummachines of all time.

Buy it,while it's still cheap!

(around 150 ($/Eu) unless in mint condition)

This drum synth machine is awesome, probably the most underrated drum box in the world ! 48kHz sampling and layering + digital filters + enveloppe generators etc... are the powerfull tools that allow you to scult your sounds from A to Z. I use it everyday in my productions and I convinced 2 friends of mine in other studios to try to get one. They did, but it took 6 mounths to find them (first friend get it for 250 EUR, second for 300 in mint condition). Got mine for 280 EUR 2 years ago... Perfect for electronic and digital sounds but not only since it contains also good accoustic samples + you can read RM50/RY30 an SY55/77 series WAVE DATA cards... Layering a TRI WAVE with a little decay + a pitched 909 BASS DRUM routed to an analog COMP results often in something very fat and punchy... hum I love it but my english sux a bit, sorry.

I started giggin live about 3 months ago and landed myself this great machine. For a drum machine that came out this early, its truly remarkable, especially when u use the BD with a triwave, it creates that boom decay that is so common today in trip hop aka crystal method. I manage to recreate Club Noveau's lean on me too with ease. The real time record is a blessing since I am not educated with charts. There is one thing that I am not satisfied with is when u record a pattern and u change that particular used pad for another song, the first song changes too.......and another is the dude from japan wasnt really helpful too. They discontinued their PCM cards like two years ago (DAMN!!!!) But I heard that u still can use the cards from RM50 and the likes on it.
