Outstanding Rhythm & Bass
The AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) tone generator system delivers voices that have extraordinary depth and realism due to advanced sample recording and playback technology. With 250 rich, vibrant voices including a full range of acoustic drums and cymbals, traditional acoustic percussion and new electronic percussion sounds, plus several bass instruments that let you create rhythm backing to accompany you on your guitar, keyboard, or any other musical instrument.
Large Multi-Function Display and Matrix Function
Simultaneously displays all the information you need for any operation, a 24-LED beat indicator that makes detailed pattern programming easy and intuitive, and a matrix function selection system that provides instant access to any of RY10's functions.
Preset Patterns and Fill-ins
50 preset rhythm patterns covering a wide variety of musical styles are featured, each having an appropriate "fill-in" pattern, a variation of the preset that can be used for break fills, or to add a touch of rythmic variety wherever it is required, which, in effect, expands the preset patterns to 100 presets.
Program Your Own Patterns or Edit Presets
Patterns and fill-ins can be created from scratch, and presets can be edited to produce the desired rhythmic results. Edit your own creations to produce variations for chorus or fill. A "real-time record" mode lets you create pattern in real time by simply playing on the instrument pads, and a "step record" mode that makes it simple to program complex or fast patterns that would be difficult to play in real time. These can be stored in 50 internal pattern/50 fill-in memory locations.
Song Mode for Pattern Sequences
Song mode allows up to 36 pattern sequences to be easily recorded and stored in memory. You can specify the precise timing of fill-ins. There is also a chain song playback mode that allows several songs to be played in sequence for even further extended playback capability and a repeat mode that can be used for repeat playback of a single song or an entire chain. Extra versatility is provided by bass transpose and replace functions that make it easy to modify the song bass line.
"Pad Banks" Select From a Range of Instrument Kits
Sixteen preset "Pad Banks" each containing a complete set of 12 drum, 12 percussion, and 1 bass instrument, are featured. Sixteen internal Pad Banks can be programmed to create custom instrument combinations. A range of Pad Edit functions allow the pitch, pan position, and accent level of each voice to be set as required.
A number of features, such as line-input jack for guitar and bass, automatic guitar tuner, and versatile footswitch functions make the RY10 an ideal companion for guitar players.
Go-Anywhere Battery Power and Internal Monitor System
The RY10 can be run on battery power and has an internal monitor system that lets you creat original patterns and songs anywhere without the need for external equipment.
Other Important Features
A special "Swing" function can be used to give patterns a syncopated feel; Cassette interface allows data to be saved to standard audio cassettes and reloaded later whenever it is needed; Headphone jack for private monitoring and programming.

Comments about Yamaha ry10:
Machine is easy to program and write music on. Very intuitive interface. 1/4" input for guitar or bass. Footswitch control input. Built-in piezo speaker for lo-bandwidth basic monitoring. Many useful features not found on other machines. Very compact. Battery powered for jamming on-the-go. Plenty of headphone volume - this get LOUD! in headphones (to the point of hearing damage). Be careful!
