RE: Yamaha 'QY' Series vs. 'RX' (help?)

Hi folks,

In the 1990's I owned a Yamaha QY10 (sequencer) and then a QY20:

From memory, it was pretty good for the time as a sequencer, and esp. good for creating and jamming along to self-created playalong tracks (for one's self-improvement).

But in the 1980's I remember lots of bands using Yamaha drum-machines of the 'RX' range (eg. RX11, RX7, etc):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yamaha_RX-5

I wondered, please, how the SOUNDS of the 'QY' series compared with those of the 'RX'? Better, worse, different?

Many thanks in advance for any help offered.

Ta,

Paul

Hi,

I received a notification informing me that member DanielSop had replied to this thread. However, when visiting here there is no such post!?

All 'replies' from 'member' DanielSop have been deleted due being a (russian) spammer. So there's no info you've missed.
