Rhythmic Robot's RX5 is a meticulous recreation of Yamaha's mid-80s flagship drum machine, the RX5. The original RX5 headed Yamaha's lineup of drum machines and was very advanced for its time, boasting 12-bit sampled sounds, multiple outputs with trim, comprehensive editing including sample-reverse, and 24 onboard sounds. It was, however, costly, and not all that easy to program compared to Roland's competing units, which makes it a bit of a cult classic now. It featured heavily on Prince's Sign o the Times, Madonna's La Isla Bonita, Cameo's Word Up (where if forms the backbone of the whole song) and many hits by The Pet Shop Boys.

The Rhythmic Robot RX5 brings you all the kit pieces of the original, plus the same 24 sounds reversed on the hardware itself. Individual control over level and pan and a comprehensive selection of drum-centric effects round out the package.

Features:

  • All 24 sound of the original RX5, in both normal and reversed versions.
  • Full 24-bit samples of the original 12-bit sounds.
  • Saturation, Drive, Compression and Bit-Reduction controls.
  • Individual pan and level control over the kit pieces.

The RX5 is ideal for anyone with an interest in 80s music or vintage electronica. It has a great punchy sound with a hint of 12-bit crispiness and crunch that really stamps its mark on a mix. It's available now from Rhythmic Robot and requires Kontakt 4.2.3 or above to run.
