I n yreviendrais not tt the world knows them

UTILIZATION

Frankly there's no easier, besides being blind, yet! in a few hours we are already able to CRER patterns!!

SOUNDS

Have !!!!!! And yes, those famous sounds! No need to stop saying frankly No matter what, even with the effects (which are not great either, apart from the delays and the rest bofff overdrive!) We come not to do sound, true! frankly if rm1x had sounds of a xl7, an d sh-32, or even a 505 mc, c t the Apocalypse would !!!!!!!!!!!!

OVERALL OPINION

So I continue the killing! lol. C is the best sequencer on the market today aya no doute.Il you just add a sound module and frankly, plus some knowledge of noon, you can do anything with, techno, rap, classical and even children's melodies! (And yes I also made up for my bb! Lol)
Srieusement, do not hesitate, this is revolutionary BCAN!!

There have a headphone output 3.5 mm audio output a 3.5 mm Stereo (Left / mono, right).
A MIDI In and Out.
Ente a footswitch on which you connect a few pedals to control function (start / stop, change the pattern ,...) by 3.5 mm.
You have 754 sounds and 48 drum kits, I think, but the sounds are not great (you worry tired quickly), so the best and aprendre a tease bte and after 1 or 2 months you ach te as an expander SH 32 (very good sound and you plant 128 bit CRER 128).
There are 60 preset style (you'll play 10 minutes and then you'll want to put you to the components) that you just do not change to 50 User Style (c is where it gets interesting).
You just fly prog (cubase, reason, live ,....) but there is no utility for RM1X.
You have a lot of very good quality effect.
And the game is a killer squenceur (very simple to learn and very very effective).

UTILIZATION

Pretty simple to use, only problem the record (in Chinese ca t'll have the same ;-) )

SOUNDS

In terms of tekno sounds are not bad at all but if you do seeing dan instrument is not terrible terrible.
The expression: not that good (AC shall have been more raliste).
Gnral but the sounds are good (a little too dry and too hot mtaliques)

OVERALL OPINION

It'll be a big month as I have, I maintenat well tamed and I dmerde well with.
Overall it is very well (I love me is what are the effects and the sequencer).
J'hsitait between it and the RS 7000. If the dough was not j'aivais hsitation I took lauras but .....
In any case OCCAZ is good for 300 euro you has something fun for months on end.
All going to rise.
Even if it has some default do not you think that price has mieu.
FYI there are many people who use well-known (Prodigy have pumped a sound factory, Aphex Twin is possible with free and I saw a guy 3Faz (no phase) pose with) so c is still had good stuff trs.
If I could I would take out a second for Bracher in master / slave + expander SH 32 and there is a way of tripe.
Well, not enough dough.

Finally though there was some small default this machine is a gem.
I advice you buy, the beginners for beginners it's a bit hard but quickly returned ca.
But if you have enough money (about 1200 euro and 900 nine ocaz d) take the RS 7000.
It has the same squenceur, 1054 60 drums kits but its most important Intgr sampler and the possibility of recording instruments and play them back.

I can not believe it

UTILIZATION

It's not a simple machine at first but in fact it is not, the head in the manual (it's just a numration functions, I saw better) for a month or two and that's good!
Y 'submenus and sub-submenus quickly but we know or go, it is very well organized I think!
A note bugs trs agaant noon (plus shipping desire to program change)!

SOUNDS

The sound is not Prou ​​but not death. (That everyone agrees that obviously!)
It's not the EMU, but agree it's OK!
Note that some believe they will do the classical and I do not know what with you whether due m'tonnes! (VCU on AF)
Unlike Shake prconise I use the effects, but wisely (it's a bit pdant but too bad, tired of everybody down!)

Often we hear that the sounds are clumps, or lack EHJV ben zi paste a distortion "amp sim" for example, put the drive in the mini (as the distortion is cheap) and the type of amp OFF, push the volume and distortion BEYOND, vienzi see, spa better?
That goes for the rest of the effects!
As someone said, is that the notching machine!

I put 9 just for fun to see up a little bar graph on the top!
But it's true that the sounds are very similar if not the trafiquent a minimum!

This machine is made for bass sounds with a layer with ocarina and percussion sounds, then you will not miss out!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 years and I have no better test as squenceur up Submitted I hte tter of the RS7000!
The report price is average and quality is better mnager the knobs and pads by adding a keyboard matre.
Of mine who just four years PRS, including two in a box I have a key on the keyboard that fair and knobs that will soon do the same I think!

If I could afford I will not repeat that choice, I will pass on rs7000 no doubt, but as I have not thunes I Rasht tomorrow eyes closed!

Complte a small machine for beginners: a sound and squenceur, surface CONTRL complte.

UTILIZATION

This machine has a standard benefit: its squenceur, trs use is enjoyable and intuitive, a great catch in short everything you need to dial. the potentiomtres rpondent well and are in sufficient numbers. the manual is crystal clear, a joy!

SOUNDS

Sound. This is exactly what is forgotten on this machine.

OVERALL OPINION

The RM1X is certainly one of the best hardware squenceurs the market easily transportable and trs enjoyable. (If you are not convinced, try both the MIDI delay!). I sold long ago since I switched to RS7000 (what a mistake) and friends continue to use it as squenceur and Controller.

Squenceur intuitive, easy to use. many sounds, styles and a lot of effects. basically it's not bad!

UTILIZATION

It's simple, I had to open the manual twice. Nice, ca used as a playstation.

SOUNDS

Sounds. Here it's been polmiques I think. Should not be choosy so far. The sounds are good on this machine. I feel very lack of cache crativit derrire sounds of the machines. if you have any ides worthy of a sparrow, it's not the sounds that are involved.
That said, I'm not a fan of drum sounds. also, as it does above, the sounds must be triturated. but must sincrement arrter: bte the rings, and plutt not bad! be seen as any faocn is not its function Premire! then see how it comes, it's no use in crying

OVERALL OPINION

I use it since its psort (98) and by two buttons that clabier rponde trs trs difficult, I am relatively satisfied. Of course it's not top notch, but the shipment of wood BCAN. I love that it offers users many places, I do not like the sounds of percussions / drums.
The ratio quality price is right, even if it cost me a little expensive for the era (the price has dropped and most importantly, my purchasing power is not the same that There's is 6 years!)
I had almost nothing test before I bought this on a head shot, I wanted to make electronic music APRS jou have the batery and the sax for years and years. So for a Premire machine, it's clean!
exprience with e, I do not know if I would do this choice. because it must be noted that for 6 years, he had y'en machines in the vein with other benefits! but even when I keep it!

1 stereo + 1 headphones (I use it)

1 MIDI in / out

y 'effects, but I would not recommend using it lol

exxxxcelllent sequencer! sequence of the must in my opinion, real-time grid + + step, very flexible, very powerful. Save it to disk

UTILIZATION

I use it as midi sequencer to control a computer with Kontakt, Live and Traktor for concerts. It works the thunder, I hesitate to buy a second, here!

SOUNDS

Ahahahaha sounds of this bike are simply despicable. It does not matter, because either way they go into effect vile!

Joking aside, I do not use the sounds of this bike

OVERALL OPINION

Solid, not too big, flexible, powerful ... the best sequence of the market hard for my taste (do not tell me about MPC), or perhaps Exaequo with the EMU ...

340 euros OCCAZ. The foot.

-1 Audio output. (So ​​no effects insertion.Dommage ...)
-1024 Trs sounds mean.
The FX-section slightly saves the rest. (3 paramtrable FX by pattern)
Squenceur-medium and unstable.

UTILIZATION

The-config is impcable.
-The functions are accesible trs (thank you in the 8 knob plastok of shit ...)
-At least: The manual is great fucking ...

SOUNDS

-You will love the sounds in your programs if you por the Nintendo Game Boy ...
-Worse than a, you die ...
-The FX are pretty good.
-I dtest all ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use it as my sequencer to control synthesizers and as a crushing machine to dial. I do not see how the lack of a MIDI-thru is problematic, as the creature is to be the basis of a bouble noon. MIDI implementation is perfect. Everything can be controlling him. You can use a section to get messages and sysex and configure all the synth rack by pressing a button. This machine clearly oriented live.

Of course, this is not a music box all in one, but find me a sequencer as effective to use on stage.

UTILIZATION

The grip takes time. I have two years and I do not fully mastering. The functions are very (perhaps too many). The manual is quite clear but far from exceptional.

SOUNDS

Sounds are obviously the most average of the machine: they are very similar, are not very editable and overall shortage of fishing. I do not use them much, although there is some who are still interested in putting in a mix (for lead sounds, forget it).
The percussion cons are pretty cool. Not as a base, but there are still some sounds that reinforce a pattern (of the sound of the RM1x becomes an advantage, because it brings a little more)

OVERALL OPINION

This is the basis of my compositions, I could easily do without. I will try maybe a more pro sequencer when I felt the need, but for now, it does everything I need.
I do not understand why the reviews on this machine are so negative, especially given its low price.

-Sounds are my trsmdiocre and got all look up and down the octave. We quickly made the rounds I used 2 years yet! The grain is also flat.
- The squenceur is good and logical.
- The audio engine train is not too much to ask for disk requires.
- The buttons are super sensitive! I took it out often with super ultra gaff and 3 keys and 3 potentiomtres OUT!
- A lightweight jump occurs by linking the sections is not pretty!

UTILIZATION

- It works alone you quickly cool loops (for tech INTERESTED live it) but ke for a.
- The effects are quite numerous but not sound terrible
- The ke squenceur There's a good in this machine!

SOUNDS

- I play and compose Electro Big Beat and she soon tired and dgot! The sounds are really flat and trs all the same! Try frankly before investing! For the price of OCCAZ There's 10 times better.

OVERALL OPINION

In fact I have 7 years to try a lot of stuff and it is one of the most machines without Intrets. STRID I go but I really trsdu t and as a lot of people also (De-bugs dirty plans by playing careful scne those who play often enough!) .
But I still say I do not know but even more than any other default it because I'm me There's dj spar 10 months. Ke And now I have the perfect solution Mpc 4000-Reason-Drumstation

It is quite dcevante connections: Stereo output and just a headphone. no MIDI Through or between audio.
-But not many sounds or trs trs INTERESTED ditables.
-3 Effect modules correct.
A-EXCELLENT squenceur, probably the best hardware squenceur I could try to control that allows any equipment properly noon. The import *. mid files is very practical. Functions are trs edition and use many "live" is a rgal including the possibility of the mute mmoriser for instant recall.

UTILIZATION

Easy-take control (even when less than electribe), the menus are explicit trs.

SOUNDS

-The sound is the downside of this machine: everything sounds flat trs. Ms. filter does not catch the problem. damage.

OVERALL OPINION

I think it's an unbeatable machine to control a rack of sound modules or a sampler of scne and this is only for I use it. For cons I Do not plug jacks on it ...
