A little better skills? Know what I want from a synth now. Who knows... I could change my mind next week. :lol: I've always though of it as a mainstream Monomachine. I love the Monomachine so...

Not a drum machine on its own, but as a sound source for 100% synthesized drum tones, the Yamaha FS1R is absolutely amazing to my ear. The snares in particular are better than any other synth I have ever owned or used.


cheers,

Well, I was getting a Machinedrum MK 1, but it arrived DOA. (looked beat to h**l as well). :(

Luckily, the seller is cool, and there doesnt seem to be any return fiasco looming.

now, I am seriously thinking the MK 2 is the only way to go....a few hundred more bucks....just may be wroth it maybe...

I'll have to check out the fs1r drum sounds - I use a bass patch off it more than any other bass sound. Other than that I recently got excited about a tr626 - it was going cheap and I was enthused by outputs for each sound - but I havn't used it yet. I tend to go back to zoom stuff- SB246 etc by default, and because its easy to use.

I generally consider the fs1r the best synth ever made - as far as sound is concerned.
