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):

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

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