firstly,i don't think its difficult to program like someone complained it below,maybe the step time recording is different from the roland step grid method,so not familiar w/,but for me,its realtime record mode has more human feel to it,also,i'll do the step time mode when it comes to 32nd notes or 16th in very high tempo.the sound is flat compared to today's pcm samples.but at that time(my bros bought it for $$750 in 84 then swap it for a monopoly),its got multi outs,it can be tuned pitch,decay,and has a good enough lcd ,the kick and snare are mostly used in many pop tunes at that time,but surely not for techno.its dated now and thats the only drum machine i used oftenly at that time.

althougt the sounds are pretty crappy, you still have room for processing via its individual outs,unlike newer products i wont mention. imo, the clap sample is its main feature, dont buy this over 40$ peace -hudbgfhubgo

What an unpopular machine! The RX11 was my first drum machine (and first foray into the world of electronic music-making). I still have it and wouldn't get rid of it. Yes the sounds are a bit naff (I'm the only person I know who likes them) but it does have character! The snare, hats and clap are the strongest sounds and have a nice "retro" sound that is distinct from the over- used 808/909 equivalents and the kicks can come up quite nicely if compressed and eq'd (not quite as beefy as the Rolands though). I wouldn't recommend the RX as a sole source of drum sounds but it can complement a percussion rig quite well. One of the main features in it's favour being the inclusion of separate outputs for each sound! You won't find that on today's models.

A very crap-sounding machine, except for the stick or the crash maybe (it's a matter of personal taste, but there's really nothing 'living' to my ears inside those sounds), and a real pain to program. Morality : sample it and drop it to the trash.
