i can´t hear that "i want a 909" anymore. eveything sounds similar because everybody use this 909/808 machines. i like the basic drumsound of my rx5. but perhaps one day i want to change the sound there is no problem for me because i can change every drumsound and store it on a ramcard. can you do this with your roland - no. so i have a wider range of sounds. and the best it is a very cheap machine. bought it for 150$.

Just Picked up an RX-5 for $170... You can get a manual from the Yamaha Web site. Much better than the old TR-808. Even our Drummer likes it!

a very big <font color=green size=+4>4</font>. It's April, 08, 2000, 4:20am, NorthWestern Hemisphere, and with the wide array of madness out there these days... You understand, it can't give a 5 at this point in time, it wouldn't be right. As much as i really really want to...I'm pulling apart on the inside, it's unbearable, a high pitched nausiating wrench of my psyche. OK, I resign, I do give it a very big<font color=green size=+4>4</font>.

holy nuts, this machine still amazes me after using it nonstop for a year and a half. bought it for $150 from a pawn shop, and I can swear it was brand new. It was my first drum machine and will be my last. the possibilities are endless. that is all that needs to be said.

The Yamaha RX 5 is a unique drum machine with extreme reliability and unique tweakable sounds, I've owned one for 3 years and it was given to me for free along with an FB 01 tone generator! It is more than a drum machine, it is a full fledged sequencer. Now here's what I do, I link my RX 5 via my midi out to my tone generator,after setting the key for each note/button, midi channel and gate time I can use the RX 5 pads to trigger synth bass, deep electro drums, guitar notes, organ chords(yes chords!)or other efx from thr FB01! This is powerful because you can create rhythm parts very quickly on the fly and have them instantly stored semi permanently in memory and later transferred to the cartridges if necessary to free up the internal memory. Like a primitive MC 505! This is truly one of the best buys going right now on the used gear market, I'd advise anyone to buy one for under 300$. Thank you Nippon Gakki! this unit never lets me down! The FB 01 tone generator made by Yamaha around the same time 1983, goes for about 80$ these days and is a perfect compliment to the RX 5. Cartridges were being made custom ordered by Yamaha of america and I believe are still being made, they offer a catalog of sounds that you pick from and they burn you a new cart.They also sell manual reprints ! The DX 7 RAM is the same as the RX 5 RAM4 cart. and may be available from used equipment dealers.
