The RM1 is a sweet machine. I have been using it for six months and it rulez. The operating system can be a bit tricky at times and believe it or not, having experience with ReBirth helps when learning it. I use the RM1 as the core of my electronic project. I don't use a lot of the RM1's onboard voices. Instead I take advantage of its' superior sequencing capabilities and slave external devices to it via MIDI. Devices like: TR808, TR909, TB303, Yamaha CS1-X, CS6-X, E-MU Orbit and various other tone generators. Essentially the RM1 acts as a catalyst to drive and control my other sound units, including ReBirth. If you would like to hear some of my sounds(sequenced with the RM1 of course) go to ------------------> http://home.earthlink.net/~ginyu/
