Yamaha RX-17 Download At How To Program Drums

If you've been following Reason Patch-A-Day for any length of time, you know I have a fondness for 80's era Yamaha drum machines, with the Yamaha RX-17 being my favorite of the black plastic, awkward family of devices. Neil Paddock, at the blog How To Program Drums, recently let me know about a pair of RX-17-based combinators he built that you should definitely check-out, if you share any of my fondness for the RX-17.

For RX-17 completists, Neil also has scans of the RX-17 pattern book and WAV and and MP3 exports of the built-in patterns. Check out his downloads page for his Combinators, other RX-17 tools, and a number of other files.

Thanks for a great resource, Neil!

Hey Robbneu! You are most welcome! Thanks for the honourable mention and for the initial inspiration.

It was all your idea really! : )

I have some others planned for release (A Doctor Octo Rex with the factory loops) and maybe even a DD5 emulation too in the near future so I'll let you know when they are ready.

Have a great Christmas everyone!
