One of the best drum machines of alltime. Bassdrum 3 kicks like a mule. And Snare lite. Is the second best snare sample ever after the mighty DMX. There are some underpar samples as with all machines. But Bassdrum 3, Snare lite. Clap 1, Rimshot 1, closed hat 2, the shaker and cowbells. Are AWESOME. They are perfect for that 80s Electro.pop--funk sound. When you gate Bassdrum 3 and Snare lite. And add the clap. Forget about it. No other drum machine except the DMX will sound better. for Electro, freestyle beats.

The RX11 is a great electro drum machine. Its samples are fatter than the weather girls. And it sounds AWESOME when you gate the snare lite (best smare sample after the DMX) and the heavy bassdrum 1. The claps cowbell and toms are superb too. I place only the DMX and 808 above it for electro funk/pop. I would never sell mine.

The initial review is wrong. The RX11/RX15 were 12 bit machines, not 8 bit. They used the same DAC as the original Yamaha DX7.

I've got an RX11 drum machine, and I have had hours of fun with it. The samples are a mixed bag, some are great some are a bit naff, but I think that's all part of the charm. As for programming the beast, it's easier to program the RX11 than it is to change the time on my watch!

I think the sounds are very realistic and very punchy than most drum machines I know today. Although it's an 8 bit but no need to EQ the drum sounds. If you like heavy jazz fusion, this will do the work. It Makes it even better to add a little reverb to the drum sounds to bring out the music. This was one of the drum machines of what Roger Powell used on one of his songs, Free From Dance Fusion back in the 1980's however, I don't think you will find it anywhere nor the album Connections to the Outside World. Anyhow I could be wrong on this though.
