Yamaha RX5 Digital Rhythm Programmer Vintage 1980s


1 in stock


Yamaha RX5 Digital Rhythm Programmer made in Japan from the 1980s in very good shape. Classic tone, programability, and vibe. Labeled with an old “C Stock” sticker on the back, but was clearly refurbished way back in the day and is working just fine. With original power supply.

The RX-5 has twenty-four digitally sampled drum sounds. The sounds include bass drum, snare drum, rimshot, toms, hi hat, cymbal (ride or crash), hand clap, tambourine, cowbell, and shaker. The RX-5 also features “Attack” and “Decay” envelope controls, a pitch envelope, and effects such as reverse, damp, pitch bend, and accent. The sequencer section can record up to 100 patterns with time signatures ranging from 01/32 to 99/2 in either Real Time or Step Time record modes. Real Time recorded patterns can be quantized to the nearest 1/2 to 1/48 note. Patterns can be arranged in up to 30 songs. The RX5 has a RAM/ROM cartridge slot for storing custom edited sounds and loading in new sounds as well.
