Yamaha RS7000 screen exchange and short demo

video by Floyd Steinberg

"The #yamahasynth​ RS7000 is a #groovebox​ released in 2001, running Yamaha's AWM engine (that's sample based synthesis). It's also a #sampler​ with up to 64MB RAM which translates to roughly 6 minutes of stereo samples. I found this on ebay for a good price, with a broken display, which I exchange for a new one in this video.
