septik's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Attention Beast of War:
This is good command station from which almost everything is feasible, because the Px7 offers a sequencer rhythms and a box has an expander.
outputs are separate series and the number of 6 (or rather 3 stereo) and the effects are assige on all outputs.
For MIDI, there are 2 out (silmutanément practice to drive a sampler and an expander for example) and in 1.
The only thing we can regret is that we can not use the 6 mono outputs


The use of Px7 is relatively simple provided it look a minimum, it is not as intuitive as well as Korg mx or rm1x.
Editing presets is a joy of simplicity is the inverse of the sequencer or must navigate a great blow to edit the wheel velocity, gate time .......


This is definitely the strong point, the dynamics is enormous, the sounds are very numerous (512 presets) and a flawless clarity.
the Px7 has 128 voice polyphony really what makes it possible to overlay a variety of sounds without food to one another, no more big bass that are cut sheets (fairly common on the RM1 mx or in another).
It is true that the home is oriented Px7 drum kit (drum map protean standard) but with a small card in addition to the game rom expander becomes truly interesting and efficiency of the filters is bleuffante.


In short it's still a big beast on which we can not get bored.
This is not necessarily for any beginner DIYers but sound will find their account.
So hurry em-u stopped production and is the latest that are still available for around 700 euros, that price should not hesitate

The + + +
the sound is clear beautiful Péchu
c a real good expander
the bus, unwanted audio in all directions, grouped in 6 out analog stereo 3 can place two insert effects or out in 3 stereo console
16 tracks mixable and programmable via 16 rotary
3 free slot Roma
Big potato sound! (Re)
1 in 2 out Midi
the ---
the only problem cau level of the LCD screen just a little in size
in the sequencer it is very good but Yamaha has to offer at this level parrait me more flexible


This machine can be configured in many ways it is good to find its config and roll after all

Editing presets is fun even though I vraimment of comparative but not the ability to overlay four instrumentals can get just about everything in terms of sound


C over the bulk of the machine

The base map is very much oriented drum and agree to house it also includes rhythmic sounds of keyboard, lead, hit, etc ...
The ability to add cards is especially important than moved down the price seems on its Roma (between 145 euro and 350 euro)

To add more potato using one or two compressors insert is very efficient


Small changes his mind after two months of use:
there is a small gap between the finishing XL7 made in the United States and made in China and Px7 c frankly a shame because this machine has vraimment in the belly ...
2003 815 euro buy an additional card with X-lead

Backline offers the same doc in French (rather poorly done for the same doc will be charged 20 euro for this award must be some french english dictionary)

for that price could be better?

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Premire thing when you see it for real, it is impressive! It's true the photos, it does not seem large but in the trs Ralite is quite the opposite. It is large and heavy, with a casing metal. In short, she inspires confidence.

the connection is really complte either midi or audio. I must say that I do not use all possibilitsa this level l.
You can change many of trs paramtres in real time thanks to the knobs on the left. The pads are large and molleux a wonder ;-)

As for the sequencer is also full rev ... see complex. You feel a little lost parfoit and it takes time to absorb the philosophy of the System.

Several ngatifs point: The screen pokey, no manual in French, no possibility to edit his drumkit (a little annoying especially with the original rom dedicates the percussion and drums )


This machine is anything but simple, and the small screen does not come fix things. However, the basic opration are carefree. Some features are all the same damn badly, I think notament the multi-purpose. Navigating the myriad menus is sometimes a bit tedious.
Editing presets is also quite complex. There are four layers (layers), or 4 tones that can overlay ... Unfortunately no shipping for drumkits SPECIFICATIONS: '- (
All parameters are ditables but once again the small screen forces you to play the wheel fawn excessively.

Submitted to the manual as a big paved A4 black and white. It is rather clear and includes examples, but sometimes seems to go a little faster on some points (a ok is trs staff). I think reading is essential, we must not be too allergic to English.


Card orgine "protean drum" is oriented drum and percussions. There are many kits "ralistes", the latter uses different samples depending on the level of VLOC. This allows a game with the pads really natural. TRS is a good place! There are also a multitude of electro and hip hop kits (some with simulated chloride) in good order.
Unfortunately, we quickly realized that many presets are redundant at the notament drumkits "ralistes" which uses the same base are ... not good!
There are also bass, leads, fx, organs (particularly nice!) Etc.. all of good quality. A lot of original sounds already and what good care.
The multi-effect offers many beautiful and reverbs, chorus / Fang are a little less extraordinary delays of trs cool.

In the end I would say the sound quality and are effective. This is also is the main asset.


APRS several months of use I came to clearly identify the qualities and faults of the machine.

Pros: - the ability to edit presets trs shoots.
- The sound of trs good bill.
- Pads and controls faade.
- The ct "pro" machine.
- The locations for additional Roma.

Cons: - The catch all piti.
- Complexity.
- Roma protean drum home can be a bit limited.
- Instruction in English
- 3615 ebay to find Roma :-(

In short it is a machine strong personality of default dpourvue not really sure, but endearing. Opportunity in the prices of command stations are becoming lower, so why not try the experience and s'offrire E-MU sound :-)
Personally I would do this choice.
