    The RS7000 has a fantastic hardware sequencer along with a solid sampler. The drums are good if not the best and the internal sounds are useful at times but certainly not up to the quality of a well tweaked VST instrument. Missing is a USB or firewire connection to replace SCSI as the connection to PC

    Price paid

    1300 US

    UTILIZATION

    Best hardware sequencer on the market. Simple and intuitive design makes it the best option for a true live performance of electronic music. From its Grid and Step record modes to the way it stores scenes almost everything is perfect. Only beef is the way it manages drum kits which is a small issue

    Seems to be holding up ok. I've gigged mine out for 2......

    Best hardware sequencer on the market. Simple and intuitive design makes it the best option for a true live performance of electronic music. From its Grid and Step record modes to the way it stores scenes almost everything is perfect. Only beef is the way it manages drum kits which is a small issue

    Seems to be holding up ok. I've gigged mine out for 2 years almost now and its working fine but I do have a bad knob. The knobs are really cheap feeling and are the worst feature of the RS7000.

    SOUNDS

    Sonically the RS7000 is great. With a master EQ for the entire machine and master FX for each track you can make you engineers life easy in the mastering process. That said I wish the RS had multiband compression per track instead of the entire boxes output. Overall I wouldnt say the RS really even has a "sound" it just plays back what you put in.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Best piece of equipment ever for true live performance as an electronic musician. Its no studio in a box but thats not what its meant for. Take it on the road and stop answering your email on stage laptop live pa's!!!

    The features are great! every track can have some effects on them. u got a mixer, eq, mastering, sampling, built in sounds, sequencing... im spazzin right now!!!!

    Price paid

    1500

    UTILIZATION

    If u know anything about a sequencer, u can get a beat out of this with no struggle at all... all u rookies? READ THE MANUAL...lol!

    its been built ok... ive heard about flaking paint... but i take mines out too, still looks good. no paint chips. and for all you people that say the knobs make it look old fashioned... ask yourself, quick turning knobs for instant results? or, 10 menu and sub-menu pages with a scrub wheel? HELLLLOOOO!!!

    SOUNDS

    Sound quality is good. the rs gives u lots of built in effects to trim or fatten up your sound.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The funny thing is...i went to SAM ASH for the mpc 2000 when i 1st saw this...the guys there told me to take it home and if i dont like it, just bring it back and get the mpc... they never saw me again...lol ( well, they did, but only to build around the rs). THE MACHINE IS OFF THE CHAIN EVEN TODAY!!!!!!

    Depends what you want to do with this machine. I find it extremely useful when creating 4-8 bar phrases using samples and then recording them as audio in cubase and arranging them, adding more instruments there. For sound design its the best piece i used so far.

    Price paid

    $530 used

    UTILIZATION

    Very easy to use... You can turn it on and in 2 seconds start makin drum patterns. I would like to add to this machine a better arp, and when loading samples ability to listen to them before u load would b nice. other than that for me it does the job.

    SOUNDS

    Sounds on it arent all that, i like the drums personally when tweaked. Sounds on it are like regular GM quality sounds (except for 63......

    Sounds on it arent all that, i like the drums personally when tweaked. Sounds on it are like regular GM quality sounds (except for 63 drum sets) and are good for using as a sketch-sounds.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought it second hand, its just a studio piece for me, but its solidly built. Its plastic and pads make lot of sound when banged, but its holding up.

    I love this piece, i got it over an MPC, its quicker to use, more options and works for me better. It alows u to sample at different frequencies and resample also so you can do a lot of things with it. OS keeps updating still so i guess Yamaha hasnt given up on it. You can adjust swing too, and play with effect in real time, real cool. I LOVE IT
