    I make a good edit of what I said two years ago:

    CHARACTERISTICS All are easily found on the internet ...
    Wholesale: 16-track sequencer, sampler, 1200 sounds, backup media cards Smart and all the connections necessary for a workstation. (In fact it is better to have the option to have the AIEB2 optical outputs and separate outputs ...)

    Basically it is a Pattern expander.

    UTILIZATION

    The general config is pretty simple if you have already used this type of device.
    functions are easily accessible and the LCD screen is large enough to be clear.
    the manual, like all the manuals, will insist for three pages about what we have understood the first time, and summed up in two......

    Basically it is a Pattern expander.

    UTILIZATION

    The general config is pretty simple if you have already used this type of device.
    functions are easily accessible and the LCD screen is large enough to be clear.
    the manual, like all the manuals, will insist for three pages about what we have understood the first time, and summed up in two lines complicated functions found! (But at least it's in French!)

    SOUNDS

    I criticized the sound at the time, but eventually spending time to change something you can get out of a lot. For tranceux I still advise having a real synth side. (Virus in my case, it perfectly complements the RS).

    the effects are good but it is a shame to select only three per song ...
    the compressor is pretty rotten, you can not change many parameters. It can serve as backup if we use the RS one but that's it.

    The micro keyboard is very useful for more than two years that I have the machine, it still works perfectly. (Edit: well over time I have bad contacts in three keys, it gets boring ...)

    I find that the arpeggiator is rotten, I preferred that of my MC 303 ... (I confirm that it is rotten, compared to the virus, there is no picture!)
    the sampler is pretty simplistic, but sufficient for what I do.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have since February 2003.
    I love the sequencer (I only use mode "song"), it is convenient and the capacity is ample. You can create a song very rapidenemt, c enorme.
    Congratulations also to the many BPM knob and the display separately.
    before him I had a MC 303, 700 and a QY EX7. It remains in the Yamaha method, which I find very well.
    For a device that performs several roles (sampling, sequencer, tone generator) is perfect.

    red card for the arpeggiator and safeguarding Smart media, (they are rare these damn cards, it is necessary to stock up!)

    I bought it new and Euro 1700 with 64 MB of ram, I think it was worth compared to the rest of the production. (Edit: c always true. I regret not taking the option AIEB2, and now we find almost more ...)
    I highly recommend, especially now that it is affordable opportunity, and for those who wonder if it is still sudden, I say YES!

    I'm not ready to part with it, except maybe for a Motif ES in order to save space by having RS + keyboard in the same machine. (and with the ES MegaVoice bonus ...)

    So there will go for it!

    UTILIZATION

    -first it is necessary change the OS kernel v 1.0 by 1.22, it improves the filters, already very powerful! and corrects errors in config!

    -To provide the options ... very expensive on the market! RAM because without it Forget the sample (without SCSI disk or smart ... no memory: (and the expansion card allows sampler in optical

    Side-manual ... uh ... novel, it is detailed but not always explicit (the bookmarks are not provided) and you'll need it for sure: D Chapter MIDI is very very short, it is a default for the following Learning on the RS, as very useful, if you have the manual RM1X then you'll have more info about noon and shortcut with SHIFT

    -Menu Internal RS and well provided with numerous opportunities to work on your sound, the pots are placed, the ergonomics is functional, the effects of play are fun ... have a lot of fun and combinations are possible appointment (not needs hands of magicians to press two buttons at the same time)

    Memory-function mute scene or memory, with 5 keys recall values affect game defined by you (really very useful!) Or just cut your tracks / lit for the mute function

    -Function loop remix "very well regarded, especially when you slice your sample and sampled opportunities slice a sample of 16 measures

    Resampling-based useful when you do not want to use this effect for all of your tracks but just for this sample

    SOUNDS

    Globals all original sounds lack punch, but you have to Arcenal improved mastering

    -Be careful though not to raise your samples too high in the peaks when sampled the sound of larceny if you'll arrive in noreilles;)

    I am the tribecore, hardtek, hardcore, she is perfect especially with the filters really bleuffant

    -Master the effect is very much customizable to wish

    OVERALL OPINION

    seen its price today, you want to start with a complete Bécanne or change machine is a good way to GET DIRTY and have fun

    For my part it will make 4 years since I use it and it still surprises me! advice if you can chopper in a studio where there will be a sign of good condition, although it is very robust, evenings are damp, binouze falling, the cold-free party, cuts full of juice live ... etc. ...
    mine are very survival was a "small" speaker fell on it ... lucky us when you mouse ...

    is an essential collector! and it still attracts as many eyes when you go out!

    1 x Audio 1 input / 1 output Midi
    Optional possibility of adding a card for more audio outputs up to 6 I think

    ... sounds too too I think more than 600
    The sounds are the same as that of RM1X ... I had previously ... I warn before the sound does not sound too hot ... they are even cold, but fortunately, the best sounds were added to each section lead, kits, ethnic ... but mostly it is the effects section that tears and put a new dimension to your sounds.
    The sequencer is pretty good but to use all its power must be very very patient.

    UTILIZATION

    It takes time to manage all the config as a sampler plus a sequencer in one small box like this ... AC complike thing.

    SOUNDS

    Sounds are rotten to my style: House, Hard House, fortunately the sampler is good enough, the grain is average but with effects recorded in the sequencer AC tear everything.

    To clarify; ... sounds mostly like a bit of AC musik playstation abuse but due to the effects section; yamaha catching his mistake

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have been using 2 / 3 months before I had the yamaha rm1x: good sequencer, sampler sounds rotten + zoom st 224 ...... the passage to the RS7000 is a joy ;.... to my little disco house sound that's great. the sampler is good and the effects they are mostly rip recordable midi data.
    The bad thing; sounds are ugly then I sample my feet and clapping ... on the TR808 and 909

    (Originally written by Paranomix39/translated from Audiofanzine FR)


    UTILIZATION

    Personally, I find the sequencer is quite complicated but great: everything can be edited! It takes too much time but once you understood how it works, it goes smoothly.

    The 64MB memory isn't a lot but I use it with a PC so that's not a problem.

    Its main advantages are the sequencer, the drum machine, and the playability live.

    SOUNDS

    Properly edited presets sound good. You'll obviously need to enhance the sounds with some processing or VSTi, but it sounds very good by itself.

    The result is much better with an AIEB2 card: the sound becomes clearer and has more punch.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I started three years ago with a RM1x, then I bought a RS7000 one year ago and it's a dream machine. I've sometimes thought about selling it but I never did because I was sure I would regret it.

    I previously used Electribe SX and MX (too simple for my taste so it became boring).

    The MC808 is a very good device but I like having lots of knobs, like on the RS, which BTW has a very small display (it feels almost like a plastic toy).

    The MC303 is really nice considering its price but it's in a totally different league.

    Right now I just have my RS7000 and my Mac.

    As a summary, buy the RS because it's an amazing tool (but don't expect to master it right away).

    The RS 7000 is a great sequencer sampler combo with a decent synth to boot. The real strength of this unit is its real time playback features though. Its pattern chain mode and real time knobs create a real instrument.

    Price paid

    $1,300 USA

    UTILIZATION

    This box is for live use. Basically its a pattern sequencer you can put your hand on at every level. Based on Scenes,phrases and patterns the sequencer lets you put together compositions on the fly or in song modes which record basically anything you do on the box in real time. Really all I can say is sit down in front of one.

    This is what I dont know about. I think its well put together,but I've encountered issues. First thing is my friend got one too and his OS was bad out the box,it corrupted over time and had to be factory reset constantly. Secondly I dont like the knobs. Personal taste but they are crap. The make of it isnt like an Akia but oh well,at least the box is dope!

    SOUNDS

    I like it. There is better,but after applying the proper master effects and eqing the RS7000 sounds really hot. The D/A converters are way better than most yamaha gear I've had. A few minor OS issues keep this from a 10

    OVERALL OPINION

    I dig it. This is the most fun I've ever had making music. I make tekno house and breaks and have been fighting with other samplers for years. This thing makes it easy for me to record instruments,vocals or drums and get it into a sketch pad immediately. In my opinion its not a studio solution,its an instrument just remember that.

    I am totally satisfied with this amazing machine after few add-ups such as 2 extra Rams of 64mb that you definetly need and both should cost no more than $120, the digital output extention card which goes for around $200 and of course a SCSI CD-ROM or CDRW for you to be able to load sound libraries to your machine, however you will have really hard time trying to find a SCSI CD-ROM in year 2002, so you should be prepared to pay another $200 for the external SCSI CDRW. And finally you have a completely amazing machine that can do it all for you for a total of $1900

    Price paid

    $1400+$500

    UTILIZATION

    Very very easy but if you are new to these machines maybe it might take you couple of weeks.

    absolutely a live performance machine. I have for almost a year now, I never needed customer support. plus there's tons of user community forums in the net.

    SOUNDS

    Sound quality is good but with the add-on digital outputs it is perfect. The factory sounds is focused on electronic music but you have freedom to sample any sound in it anyways. Effects are great but I would have added 3 more knobs.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Simply blows my mind but I kinda wanna check out the new Akai MPC 4000.

    This box is filled with great features and tricks that make hardware sequencing a pleasure as it should be. not much missing, and sure anyone always want's more, so user reguraly drop ideas for new features in the dedicated forums which are also monitored by yamaha, and reasonable request have good potential in future updates.

    UTILIZATION

    For a diehard like me it's pretty easy to use and to understand, but i read many postings from 'newbies'that have a problem with the manual, so i think a dedicated book for the rs7000 wouldbe very needed and used.

    i treat all my gear with the care and respect it deserves, so for me the knobs ,casing and all is good enough, i transport it to live gigs in a hardcase, and move around in a car... no crapy setups in the clubs, only the best!

    SOUNDS

    The sound is warm and fat! way better then roland gear, and ofcourse it takes the one controlling the gear to understand how to sqeeuze the best sound out of any box.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Without a doubt one of the best investments i bought for my studio in the last 15 years, perfect in combination with computer platform, aswell as standalone!

    The amount of features on this thing is just amazing,ionly have it for a month so every day i find something new on this thing. it's a great goovebox-sampler and both functions are very grown-up.

    Price paid

    1050 euro

    UTILIZATION

    I hate reading manuals, so for me it takes a little longer to learn all the inns and outs but it is nice to discover something new, and when i want something to happen, it useually does (sometimes after some effort) once i discover how a particular function works, it's a breeze...

    i think i is very robust, but i havn.t giged it yet, or have it dropped to the floor or anything, so i'm not sure... but it's heavy and it feels strong

    SOUNDS

    The sound of this thing is the reason why i bought this box in the first place, when i went to the store, i was convinced i was gonna walk out with a roland mc-909, but i heard them both in the store (on the same mixer/amp/speakers) and the rs just sounds bigger and better!!! so i ended up with this baby

    OVERALL OPINION

    This has become the heart of my music production, before i used a computer, but hardware just rules!!! i love it and i will go to my grave with it!!
