Yamaha RX5

The Yamaha RX5, made in 1986, is perhaps Yamaha’s greatest drum machine. It has 24 sounds, 12 analog outputs, pattern and song modes, sound revers, tuning, and a pitch envelope. We also have the Gligli RX5USB allowing us to load in any other classic drum machine sounds. The RX-5 has been used in quintessential pop hits of the late 80s by artists like Taylor Dayne, The The, Paula Abdul, Alvin Hayes, Roxette, Pet Shop Boys, Cameo, Sisters of Mercy, New Order, Madonna, Prince, Elton John, Cocteau Twins, and Neneh Cherry.
