Quick Yamaha RX21 Demo

Well, I found a Yamaha RX21 at Goodwill today for $15 (plus $1 more for the AC Adapter!) I didn't really need it, but just couldn't resist that cool 80s styling.

1. It has 9 sounds.
2. Weird Midi-In menu procedure.
3. Drum sounds are not on standard drum maps. I had to figure them out and program from scratch using Sonar.

Still, whatever. It's early 80s PCM technology.

Made a quick demo with a little help from 1. Korg TR Rack. 2. Roland M-VS1, and 3. Yamaha TX81Z.

Nice tune! I have the RX21 too, it was my first drum machine. I've paid 200$ for itand really got screwed. It's worth maximum 60$, and even at that price it's expensive for what it is! Still, a nice drum machine, I've learn how to program electronic music with it.
