    The Yamaha RS7000 brings it all together. Everything you need for professional-level music production particularly in dance, techno, Hip Hop, R&B, and ambient genres is included and flawlessly integrated in a system that has been specifically designed to facilitate modern production techniques. Delivering unique and powerful features a combination of integrating loops and samples with MIDI, plus the real hands on feel of an intuitive interface the RS7000 is a complete desktop studio that answers the needs of modern music production.

    A new concept – the Integrated Sampling Sequencer

    Perhaps the most unique function of the RS7000 is the ability to seamlessly integrate audio and MIDI. The 4-MB of onboard sampling memory is expandable to 64 MB. Users can import samples from a variety of formats; sample sounds themselves from external sources, or even re-sample the internally sequenced sounds of the RS7000 itself to instantly create new audio loops and phrases. The Integrated Sampling Sequencer automatically breaks the samples into discrete parts (based on amplitude peaks), and generates a corresponding MIDI sequence. Audio beats of differing tempos can then be synchronized and processed using the same MIDI tools (such as Grid Groove) as any regular MIDI data, and the same filters and parameters as the internal synth voices.

    Synthesis and On-Board Sounds

    The RS7000 features a 62-voice AWM2 tone generator with over 1,000 onboard ROM-based synth voices and 63 drum kit sounds. There are six distinct types of filters, including phat resonant low pass, band pass, and hi pass – all controllable with a multi-stage envelope. Advanced LFO modulation capabilities included numerous BPM-synchronized waveforms plus a unique user programmable wave for creating your own unique BPM-synchronized effects. All edits to the sounds are stored as an integral part of the song and pattern data, so a virtually unlimited range of user sounds can be created.

    Radical Effects Processing Takes Your Sound a Step Further

    On top of the three system effects, there is a separate Master effect section with a multi-band compressor, slicer, isolater, and other DJ-style master effects. These effects let you put the finishing touches on your RS7000 productions.

    Advanced MIDI Sequencing Capabilities

    The MIDI sequencer offers both pattern-based recording with 16 sections of 16 tracks each, and a 200,000 note-per-song linear sequencer. Real-time recording with input quantize, step recording and grid style recording methods are all available. After the data has been recorded you can apply advanced editing macros such as quantize and data thinning to refine your music. Once sections of a song have been fully developed in the Pattern Mode, different arrangements can be performed and auditioned in real time using the RS7000's dedicated section buttons. All pattern and section data can be easily converted to linear sequence song format for final tweaking. The RS7000 takes the MIDI sequencing capabilities first developed in the groundbreaking RM1X to a whole new level.

    Real Time Hands On Control

    The RS7000 has 18 assignable knobs and two pads for subtle or radical real time control over sounds, samples and MIDI sequences. The knobs can be assigned to control the sounds, modify playback of MIDI data using processes like MIDI echo, harmonize and beat stretch, or assigned to standard MIDI CC messages for controlling external devices. With the RS7000 real time performance of MIDI sequences becomes a brand new art form.
