Yamaha RX5 Drum Machine - a detailed demo and tutorial

video upload by CatSynth TV

"We present a detailed demo and tutorial of the RX5, Yamaha's flagship drum machine from the 1980s. It is often overlooked in comparison to the better known Roland drum machines of the era, but it is a classic in its own right with its own sound and feel. We go over its many features for making patterns, songs, and creating and editing your own sounds using the built in PCM waveforms or addition waveforms from a ROM cartridge.
