    1. The Yamaha DJX was the first keyboard my hands had ever touched. I was going to Parsons in NY and a friend went to pick one up. We spent weeks recording whatever into her Mini-Disc recorder (this was like 1999). Since then, I bought it from her, grabbed a SP 303 and got busy. The DJX was my entry into music production.

  1. Loopop did a fantastic job with these reviews/tutorials of the new RC-505 & RC-600 loopers. Roland sure packed a bunch of features and effects into these boxes.

  2. I had the 505 and 202. Cool stuff but just couldn’t get used to it. While the MK2 has more control and a bigger display there’s still a lot of menu diving and even though you could add a MIDI controller it’s still too much hassle for me. I’ll rather wait for Loopy Pro which looks to be something way more flexible and affordable.
