Its awsome. I got a killer deal on one, only $100. I like to tune all the presets down so I can get a real heavy sound. I can make it emit sounds like that of NIN on a good day.

sound edititing on this machine is quite versatile. Enevlopes. loop points and even

reverse functions are cool. It's worth pointing out that once the sounds have been set up for each pad,

and a pattern has been recorded, the sound parameters are kept for each pattern,

which means that you can have several patterns which have different drum sounds

set up. You can also (in step time) change the sound parameters of each sound, so

for example, you could have a hi hat playing different pitches, or use the sampled

bass guitar, and play a melody with it. On the down side, the manual is quite terse, and when overdubbing on a pattern,

the pads do not reflect the sound parameters previously recorded... A real pain

which leads to a lot of confusion. If you have a sampler with a decent library, then i'd suggest buying something

simple such as a TR505 for rythmn programming. If you don't owv a sampler, then

the RX5 will give you a good run for your money since the sounds are very flexible. It should me noted that this machine attempts to sound &quot;authentic&quot; so there are

no 909 or 808 / electronic sounds in here.....
