This is my first drum machine. I bought this because I thought that the synth bass would be a bonus because I could save a track on my 4-track recorder. I'm a guitar player, so after recording my first 10-song tape with the programmable bass (at 4 hours of programming the bass per song), I decided that the bass sounded too much like the beginning of Kenny Loggin's "Danger Zone".

There is a lot of variety in sound, but only one set of drum sounds is compatible with the rock/country rock sound I record. Programming just the drums doesn't take too long, but I think I'd be willing to part with this device for a real drummer and a basement to jam in.

Don't forget the line-in, I used this baby to have jam sessions in the park with a SM58 on the line in, and out to JVC/MD. Porta studio that is with quality beatz. The bass synth is a bit corny though...

i recently sold my ry-10, and now i miss it like hell. it's got no midi out and got shit memory (49 16-note patterns), but the amazingly intuitive interface haunts me every day. fortunately i saved all the sounds onto a mini-disc so that i can sample them later. the sounds are awesome considering all the other shortcomings of this machine, and even not considering it's shortcomings. if anyone is selling theirs let me know.

This is by far the greatest drum machine deals ever. I paid $60.00 for it like brand new in the box with manuals. First off if you are slightly familiar with Yamaha gear this thing will be a breeze to operate. I was writing patterns in less than 10 minutes. The internal speaker is kind of cool and stupid at the same time. Just like the battery deal. Batterys are just too expensive to use up in a drum machine. I don't think I would be out in the middle of nowhere with no electricity for the power supply. The internal speaker is weak, but is probably ten years old, so whatever. At least it has an speaker on and off switch. Drums sound pretty damn good especially through an external effects processor. The pads aren't velocity sensitive, but with the midi in and an external velocity sensitive device the unit is. I am overall very impressed with this little unit, I like it when I buy inexpensive gear that I end up really enjoying. I would recommend this unit if you can get it for $50 - $80, or else I would just look for a RY-20 for around $100.
