β– Main panel features a 16 x 2 lines LCD display, 27 rubber buttons, 13 pads (no velocity) and 2 sliders.

β–  Main 8-bits CPU HD6030 manages 6 voices polyphony. Main sound generation is based on plain PCM samples coded at 12 bits resolution generated by IC YM2154 rhythm generator (also found on RX11 and RX15) + DAC YM3012. 

β– WAVETABLE pure rompler machine with a 2 MB ROM wavetable that contains 26 PCM samples at 12 bits. Internal PCM sounds cannot be really edited but 2 parameters: volume set and stereo panning. 

β– SEQUENCER notes can be recorder in 2 modes:
- step in mode entry
- real-time with various quantisation levels 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, 1/12, 1/24 or 1/48.
The sequencer features some edit functions such as Delete, Copy, Clear, Repeat, Punch-in or tempo change. Of course it is also possible to trigger sounds by MIDI, and each sample can be assigned to a different MIDI note that cannot be remapped.

β– SYNC tempo can be set internally (range 40-240 BPM) or synched to Midi clock or tape sync. 

β– MEMORY
- 10 songs
- 999 patterns.
Songs and patterns can be saved to magnetic tapes ("CAS") or by Midi exclusives dumps.
