I couldn't find anything on the RX15 apart from a couple of weak distortions and a whole lot of connnections that lock up, reset and crash the machine including a few that fill the memory with empty patterns so you can't do anything until you've deleted every pattern one by one. Theres also some crashes that will only allow you to start it up again when you've removed the internal battery.

The RX15 and RX11 are major pains in the ass.

The crash that fills the memory with empty patterns is a MASSIVE pain. I gave up after it happened about 5 times on my RX-15. Good to hear i didn't miss anything

This guy bent his Rx11, and that's basically a more complex rx15. I imagine that it has a lot of the same chips, just less buttons.

Hmm, I wonder if instead of using a joystick or a rotary switch, if an array of toggle switches or maybe a five row DIP switch would suffice?

I don't want to trash my last Atari stick.

Have you tried any of these bends, are they actually worthwhile?

That guy must have had a whole lot more patience than i have  ;)

Nnnnnnnno. Because I solder very poorly. But, because I have it, it's nice to know it can be done. And because this thing sounds like decaying sheep ass smells I probably will burn it up trying to broke-tify it ...Later.

Lol NO that is bad info on the Pattern or Song Clear method.  In the RX15 User Manual on page 37 it goes thru how to clear all Patterns or Songs hit CLEAR then hold ACCENT and STOP and it will display "Clear ALL Songs?" then hit Yes.  Sploosh.  Same for Pattern clear.  Easy Peazy.  Hope this saves someone banging their head against the wall some time in the future.

Except in the situation i described the factory reset or any method described in the manual to clear the memory doesn't work, as the crash seems to lock up the memory somehow.

So lol, YES that is good info.
