MGR/John C.'s review"Zoom RhythmTrak RT-323"

Zoom RT-323
I bought it on Ebay, for about $200 dollars, it sells for about $325 on the street. I am a intermediate beginner at guitar and I needed something more advanced then a metronome, I found it hard to meet an experienced drummer that would have the patience to let me play along with him/her.

I immediately fell in love with the simplicity of getting this thing to work. I had it up and running in minutes and it didn't take much reading of the manual to get it started. The manual is well written as well. The drum and base kits and sounds are incredible, they do not sound like cheap imitations of drums with an electronic sounding tone.The bass sounds vary from low key rhythm lines to all out funky slap bass and everything in between! Everything is well laid out and easy to access. Drum pads can be adjusted for sensitivity. The Grooveplay function is incredible,allowing you to switch between patterns like a DJ, Linking patterns to create complex yet easy to create drum and bass lines! The 13 backlit pads are set up like a piano keyboard making it very easy to create bass lines!

Theres not much I didnt like about the RT-323 Had I known how good it really was I would have been willing to buy it at a regular music shop. About my only compaint was the really bad smell of cigarette smoke it had, (I pity the lungs of the poor sap that used it before me!). But everything worked fine, and I guess thats an example of one of those things about Ebay that you have to be willing to accept when you want a good deal.

Overall it is well constructed for years of use.

After checking out the RT-323 and other drum machines at my local music stores, (Sam Ash, Manny's) I found that it was the best choice for me and hopefully for you too.

Zoom RT-323
Foncitonne audio
airship by twelve o'clock
a wide range of his art available
the effects are limits.
o the problem of choice of the nivo are ke are the realistic d + a battery are quite limited. And ceu ke + j believes to be the realistic reverb are accompagnsd a modifiable pa a priori. Imagine the effect of a measure or the double pedal is used, it is getting a real title speedcore: D
simple to use with manual
the key sensitivities are nice, but hard AGRER
patern of the pad and volume changes are long enough to programs

but hey, it s a steady rhythm of a box and not a battery


Simple to use with manual
kelkes limitation remains my taste among other concerns in ki dtails the nivo edition of the music and other things


Donorit good. koikeu the + realistic drum sounds are Accompanied of reverb, c is quite annoying when you have a tendency to make under extreme metal (or maybe some kind of tekno speed / darkcore)
however, I am pleased to Some


Cool box has rhytme I'm pretty combl. the moin for ke j actually.
I do a solo project. and nivo production sound does my poss any problem and instead, I had some compliments from other people by making listen to its sound on CD without editing.

ricoute's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)"quite promising ... and sounds better overall .... a 18 Sr!"

Zoom RT-323
A priori comprehensive
taken out L / R stereo
2 sockets midi in / out
2 Sub taken out (to split the output parameter
1 line in
1 headphone jack
1 socket expression pedal control lea height / volume or sound of the pedal)
1 plug pedal switch (ativation sound or change the sound)

large circular buttons / jogs (as table editing video) "value" and "volume" exit convenient and instuitifs

presentation very good, but not massive enough solid priori

sequencer 96 ppm (classqiue like a boss dr 880!)

The only connection is via a computer MIDI, a usb would have been a little more useful and practical


I did that for a very short time (15j) so I return to locate these points with more distance

The manual is clear and sufficient I could go and popularized enough for a novice to the bar

Limited effects pitch / pan / volume therefore facilities

Objectively, I would not note, reserving notice when I operated the beast so bcp aprofondie and reliable!


drums sounds are varied with the rock a slight reverb seems he giving excellent dynamics and clarity.
of even the bass sounds (notably those for the funk are more realistic than the 18 sr

Of stamps realistic enough in any case very credible (see other models)

Very limited effects a pitch / volume & pan nothing else
oddly the lowest rt 223 range features a much more advanced with a range of reverb / compressor .... + Customizable metronome sounds (after I do not know if the basic sounds are as good as the rt 323?

Sounds very exotic / ethnic style tam tam are the ones I like the least, but also those that interest me less equally
Sounds like rock & industry most are good overall homogonité


for 15 days then step back

Very good presentation, buttons and switches seem serious enough gal informative display and intuitive menu functions
(We did not crack a manipulation SR18) fairly classic I was pleasantly surprised to Focus on the brand that I had to priori ... Pluot ... adverse wrong!

I had the Alesis Sr 18

- I did not like the pads and very hard race without driving
(Those of rt 323 or 223 are very similar to those of Dr 880 boss very nice one and therefore is not obliged to tataner fiercely case of sr 18 if you want to get the level and grade is jointly qq sensitivity SETTINGS pads)

- The sounds were more congested bcp bcp altogether less free or natural sound aspect of a little glitter cymb articiels / low cottony little of drums and significantly worse on the electric bass restitution issue (more compressed)
- Connection possibilities including the upper sub-out jack and one extra controller for

the big plus is that the map memmoire dope (even the dr 880 is only 32MB which is the case of rt 323 but with a mem card smartmedia course (standart some other time, but you can still represented have more 128MB max: significant!))

Is the least they could have put a backlight for the display general, while a lot of buttons are so bright retro élcxairees outside pads themselves (that possesses the same rt 223 which is detachable .... but on rt 323 nothing of it) but the latter has not memmoire card is yet far more interesting

I bought OCCAZ taken a reasonable, it is no longer new in the rt 223 is almost 200 € and is competitive with Alesis sr 18 which has significantly increased qq years

I liked the dr 880 bcp can be made even greater issue with pots level bass / drums / directly accessible to handy but it is more than 500 € very expensive, and its display occaz limited time is a problem recurring.

So the R / p / q is very very good and even to 140/150e this is a very good deal.

I'm quite surprised, very diverse and even opposing opinion, it all depends what you looking for exactly just a good background of drums and bass pure rock and industry

The more memory the card is a great idea

to quibble to the usb hard taking (as the computer link noon!) or an optical and it was full, but it's already very much in the basic configuration

Least the very limited effects (this pd.v. the rt 223 is much better off
after, I think we can go in and retrieve external external effects

I think unfavorable opinions, playing on the fact that either people expect too much of the bar and are disappointed because it is not necessarily limited elektron not and do not ask the impossible and no longer go astray, c It is a bit if you wanted the same rendering of a North clavia with a micro korg question of proportions and targeting!!

For bassist or guitarist, I think it is almost ideal tool without too much strain, with suffisement diversity

Zoom RT-323
noon without effects


Easy config


sounds .... bof


I bought new (old error) and sold one month later.
Lack of flexibility, sounds toms and snare very average.
In short: avoid.
