    FS: YAMAHA RX-15 DRUM MACHINE


    One of the first 12-bit sample-based drum-machines, the RX15 was considered
    a highly
    modern music instrument back in the early 80's. The 15 onboard sounds can
    be played by
    using the 12 distinct drum pads or "buttons".

    The volume of each sound can be set individually and the sounds can also be
    panned
    in the stereo field. The "accent" pad can be used to create rhythm patterns
    with a more
    dynamic feel. Each of the 15 sounds can be independently programmed for
    level,
    accent and pan.

    There is a stereo pair output. The RX-15 can store 100 one-bar patterns and
    these can
    be chained together form up to 10 songs, with bar divisions of up to 1/192.
    The number
    of notes, number of bars and bar division can all be independently set.

    The RX15 is MIDI compatible, with MIDI IN and OUT.
    A 16-character LCD display is used to display information.

    The RX-15 features fixed 12-bit PCM samples, although a few can be tuned
    (e.g.: hi or
    medium). The RX-15 is a breeze to use, especially if programming 32nd or
    faster notes
    is important to you. Quantization goes down to 1/48th notes before dropping
    to the fixed
    MIDI clock resolution of 1/192, which makes putting 64th notes in a single
    bar tricky. But
    it's simple to create and edit a 2-bar 1/32nd note pattern and up the tempo.


    The following sounds are included:
    Bass Drum
    Snare Drum
    Low Tom
    Mid Tom
    High Tom
    Rim Shot
    Shaker
    Cowbell

    Crash Cymbal
    Ride Cymbal
