Yamaha RM1X : FP User's user review

8 (8/10)

Characteristics 8/10

Multiple Midi Outs would be sweet. A way to save user patches. A way to hear other tracks while recording in X0X mode.

Price paid

$700

Utilization 8/10

The interface can be hard to get used to. There is a lot of sub-menus where certain features hide. It's a very easy machine to use though and it has never crashed or anything similar. The only big glitch is that after a lot of use the keys become worn and unresponsive. The manual is ok and should get you up and ready in little time.

Once again, the only big glitch is that after a lot of use the keys become worn and unresponsive.

Sounds 5/10

Sound is not where the Rm1x excels in my opinion. It's sequencer might be top notch but it really lacks in the sound dept. If this is your only peice of kit you will want to expand. However, its sounds compliment other synths well.

Overall Opinion 10/10

Aside from the few things I mentioned the Rm1x oooozes class. It's sequencer is top notch and suits both studio work and live work. While I dont think it's sounds are amazing they still have the ability to inspire and do work well when placed in a composition with other sounds.
