    it's not a sampler...
    let me move this to "synthesizers".

    the rm1x is an "arranger" pretty much like MC303 and such. You can't sample anything.

    If you want to sample, go for a YAMAHA SU700 or an ELECTRIBE S or an AKAI MPC2000XL. Expand the memory as much as possible.

    voila

    definition of sampling

    a sampler CAN SAMPLE. sampling means that you can record any sound like if you hit a frying pan or if you break a bottle on the floor.. you can record this short sound and this is called a sample!

    machines without sampling capabilities are different.. they have a bank of sounds and you can't record any "real" sounds. You are more limited.

    The RM1X is a good sequencer but sound-wise it is not the best at all.. you have a sound bank and voila.

    With an Electribe S or a Yamaha SU700 or an AKAI MPC2000XL, you record sounds, sequence them, add effects and filters... pretty good. Many producers use them.

    Hope this helps! Ask any question.

    I personally can't wait till the Yamaha RS7000 comes out. Now that's what I call a tool.

    1500-1800 US$ depending on the site
    Those memory SIMM's should be standards right?
    How much do such a 32 mb SIMM cost?

    Nooooo! Not Simms!

    Newbie at producing, Professional with computers, that's me. Simms are very expensive right now. They are like old school memory. The new kind of memory everyones computer has now is Dimms. The other day at work I had to order both simms and dimms. I couldn't believe it, 128Mb of dimm costs about $50 for decent quality, 2 32Mb simms cost around $180. If anyone cares to know, you only need one Dimm, with simms, you need a pair of the same. Don't ask me why the price difference is so steep. I do know that standard memory is still cheaper than proprietary so it's good in that perspective.
