tasek's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" But obsolete vintage ... for fun"

Yamaha RX11
Bought a few hours ago in a flea market, LCD cracked (just read anyway) and a button missing.
Not tried sequencing (manual fairly substantial)
Pan and volume for each sound easily editable, separate outputs for each instrument.
8bit PCM samples
Kick snare and punchy enough. No effects, 8 snare, kick 4 ...
Twelve o'clock connections available

UTILIZATION

Use a little laborious, this is my first Yamaha

SOUNDS

Sounds are rather synthetic approach although drum sounds.
Machine released in 1984 to complete a DX7.
The paterns plants were no longer present not able to test

OVERALL OPINION

Value for money ... Good for 10 euros okay, it's more fun, I would not have given more.
The sounds resemble a TR-505 (which I own).
I recommend this if BAR ... for a beginner or a guitarist who just wants a little support to do it.
I still like the kick and snare, it's pretty dull and dry, with a compressor in the ass it does.

Yamaha RX11
The Yamaha RX 11 is a digital drum machine (8-bit PCM sound sampls)
dating of the beginning of the 80s, all the connections is jack outputs spars so very nice!
regarding the sounds are all the elements of a battery, are ditables panning and volume remains so cheap ca
29 sound samples (8 bits): Bass drum x 4 x 8 Snare drum, Rimshot x 2 x 2 Hight open hat, closed hat High x 2, high hat pedal, x 2 tom, ride cymbal, crash cymbal , Hand claps x 2, x2 Cowbell, Shaker
Part squenceur is not Evident, but not impossible to establish
I put 7 essentially to release sheets and spars twelve o'clock

UTILIZATION

I had no manual But after a few hours pass on, clarifies AC alone
Evident it is not a prima facie

SOUNDS

Personally, I used to make this box rhythm of electro in the spirit of AIR, the sounds are so typs 80 that all styles are obviously not possible (but not good with a TR909 all you can not take any musical style either),
dpend any style as usual '
Me, I find the very snare synth-pop, new wave, although it's nice used.
sounds remind me of the mood of 80's album "Sexuality" by Sebastien Tellier

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for some weeks already I enjoyed myself with,
This is obviously less flexible than software solutions, but the cot "button prrgler" makes the coolest boiboite
I already had other BAR which had also, their charms (always in style electro or ambient)
I had this bar for a reasonable price, the report qualitprix is ​​not bad given that its price has dropped from 900 euros now its exit 70 on average (odds AF)
This kind of BAR as many electronic instruments, has a funny story: in 1983 sold as a good rhythm box yamaha, it has become even cheesy kitsch (remember the MS20 and other roland tr) to end revival 90's electro music.

I use it in downtempo (between 75 and 100bpm) with a "real" bass, string Gmedia station (arp omni or flashing) for keyboards, some samples of effect from analog synth (like system-100) and Delaye guitar well and it feels like the universe ...

Yamaha RX11
Drum machine unrealistic enough not to be used in any case.

UTILIZATION

Like all electronic instruments Yamaha at the time (see DX7) is a puzzle. More memory cartridges without this machine is no longer anything at all just because you can store one or two pieces programmed.

SOUNDS

Sounds vaguely like the battery, by far, and when one is a little deaf.

OVERALL OPINION

When you think that this thing cost a fortune to its release ... It's enough to disgust forever electronic instruments.
Now the sounds of this machine are too rotten to be fun and not good enough to be realistic. So in all cases ca no point, especially since it takes hours to read a huge manual of 100 pages to get to get out of something useless.
Instrument to be accorded to maniacos depression or people who are very alone in life for example. And yet it would be cruel.

Yamaha RX11
Box has enough pace unrealistic not to be used in any case.

USE

Like all electronic instruments Yamaha at the time (see DX7) is a headache. Also no memory cartridges the machine is no longer used to anything because you can just store one or two pieces programmed.

SOUNDS

Sounds vaguely like the battery from far away and when you are a little deaf.

NOTICE GLOBAL

When you think that this thing was costing a fortune to its release ... It's disgust you forever electronic instruments.
Now the sounds of this machine are not rotten enough to be fun and not good enough to be realistic. So in all cases ca is useless, especially since it takes hours reading a huge manual 100 pages to reach out something unusable.
Instrument to book with maníacos depressive or very individuals in life for example. And yet it would be cruel.
