I picked up a YAMAHAH RM1X SEQUENCER for $100 AUS.
It was just an impulse buy at a cash n carry store.
I really have no idea why I bought the thing really? all the knobs? buttons? the cool blue colour? big screen? F knows?
I already own an MPC 1000 and a S3000XL.
This is how I've been rollin for the last 2 - 3 years.
I have mucked around with the RM1X once or twice and its been on the shelf ever since.
The main thing I dont like about it, it dont sample, but hey I already own two samplers, doh!
I make hip hop beats and get my sounds from the crates.
The sounds in the RM1X are dance orientated, plus pretty cheesy I must say, very 90's electro sort of?
Anyway enough of the blabber! DO I HANG ON TO THIS THING FOR THE SEQUENCER?
I have heard its the bomb! once you get all the midi sorted with external gear eg... s3000xl.
I feel I havent really given the thing a chance because I'm so used to working on the MPC.
I also feel its just another thing I gotta find time to learn etc...
What do you guys think??? KEEP IT and give it a go? or SELL IT off and buy more vinyl?
Peace from OZ!
