Usage Precautions
• Electrical interference
For safety considerations, the RT-123 has been designed to
provide maximum protection against the emission of
electromagnetic radiation from inside the device, and protection
from external interference. However, equipment that is very
susceptible to interference or that emits powerful electromagnetic
waves should not be placed near the RT-123, as the possibility of
interference cannot be ruled out entirely.
With any type of digital control device, the RT-123 included,
electromagnetic interference can cause malfunctioning and can
corrupt or destroy data. Care should be taken to minimize the risk
of damage.
• Cleaning
Please observe the following safety tips and precautions to
ensure hazard-free use of the RT-123.

prevent malfunction and safety hazards, do not use any
other kind of AC adapter.
Use a soft, dry cloth to clean the RT-123. If necessary, slightly
moisten the cloth. Do not use abrasive cleanser, wax, or solvents
(such as paint thinner or cleaning alcohol), since these may dull
the finish or damage the surface.
Please keep this manual in a convenient place for
future reference.
When using the RT-123 in an area with a different line
voltage, please consult your local ZOOM distributor about
acquiring a proper AC adapter.

The backup sound provided by the RT-123
consists of up to two drum kits and one bass
program. A drum kit is a collection of drum
sounds including bass drum, snares, and tomtom, percussion sounds such as congas and
bongos, and various other effect sounds. These
are combined to create backing tracks for a
wide range of music genres. The RT- 123 comes
with 80 preprogrammed drum kits of which up
to two can be used simultaneously. A bass
program is a bass sound such as electric bass,
acoustic bass, synthesizer bass, etc. 25 types of
bass programs are available, of which one can
be selected for playback.

Give it a try ! You will notice that different pads
produce sound of a different pitch.
Unlike with the drum kit, the bass program
does not consist of different instrument
sounds. Rather, one type of bass sound is
varied in pitch. You can use the 13 pads like
the keys of a keyboard.

track B, and the bass track. Drum tracks A and B
contain drum kit recordings and the bass track a
bass program recording.

Pattern Recording
(Real-Time Recording)
The RT-123 has 99 user pattern slots which can be filled with your own patterns. Creating and recording
a pattern is possible in two ways: by actually playing the pattern on the pads (real-time recording), or by
entering each sound individually (step recording). The procedure for real-time recording of a drum track
and bass track is described below.
Real-time recording of a drum track
Real-time recording refers to the process of playing the pads while listening to a metronome sound and
recording what you play. First, let's record drum tracks in real time.

recommend that you try out various approaches to find the one
that is best suited to the bass pattern that you want to record.

To shift the pitch of all pads, operate the [VALUE +/-] keys while no pad is pushed.
When the pitch assigned to pad 1 is changed, the pitch of pads 2 13 also changes accordingly in semitone steps. For example, if the
E minor scale is assigned and you shift pad 1 from "E 2" to "A 2",
the A minor scale will be assigned to the pads.

Pattern Recording
(Step Recording)
This section describes step recording, which is another recording type that is possible with the RT-123.
What is step recording?
Step recording allows you to enter and record each sound separately, step by step, while the RT-123 is in
the stop condition. Even without mastering how to play the pads in real time, you can easily create
complex drum and bass patterns. And you don't need to stop there, because you can even create patterns
that would be impossible to play in real time.
For step recording of a drum track, you select the shortest note that is to be used as unit, and you create
the pattern by pressing a pad (note) or the [REPEAT/STEP] key (rest) for each step.
For example, to create the following bass drum pattern with step recording, select an eighth note as
smallest unit and make the entry as follows:
bass drum
[KICK]
[STEP]
[STEP]
[KICK]
[KICK]
[STEP]
[STEP]
[STEP]
Pattern Recording (Step Recording)
When the end of a pattern is reached, it loops automatically back to the beginning, allowing you to add
for example snare and hi-hat separately, to complete the pattern. By pushing 2 pads at the same time, you
can enter 2 sounds in the same position.
For step recording of a bass track, the procedure is slightly different, because unlike for the drum track,
the pitch and duration of the sound must be specified. The fact that tapping a pad gives the shortest-unit
note and pushing the [REPEAT/STEP] key gives the shortest-unit rest is the same. The pitch is
determined by which pad you push. The length is determined by holding down the pad and down and
pressing the [REPEAT/STEP] key multiple times. Each push of the [REPEAT/STEP] key increases the
duration of the sound by the shortest unit note.
For example, to enter the following bass phrase, select an eighth note as smallest unit and make the entry
as follows:
[A2]

Creating Songs
(Song Mode)
This section describes how to line up user patterns in a desired order to create the backing for an entire
song. This mode of operation is called the song mode.
What is a song?
A song is a sequence of user patterns (preset patterns cannot be used). A song consists of multiple slots
(called "steps") each of which contains one pattern. The maximum length of a song is 99 steps. The
maximum number of songs that can be stored in the RT-123 is 99. (The actual number of available steps
and songs will depend on the number of distinct sounds used for user patterns and other songs.) In song
mode, you can change also the tempo and volume during a song.
pattern
pattern
pattern
pattern

Song
NOTE
The number of steps is not equal to the number of measures. The
length of each step depends on the pattern that is contained in the step.
Besides the pattern number, each song step can contain the following settings:
• Volume: The volume of the pattern as contained in the step can be set in the range from 0 (no change)
to -30.
• Transpose: The bass track can be transposed in semitone steps in the range from -6 to 0 (no change)
to +6.

be varied in the range from -30 to 0 (no change) to +30 BPM (beats per minute = number of quarter
notes per minute).

PLAY
• When the song number is changed, the groove play tempo also
HINT
changes according to the master tempo of the new song. If
necessary, adjust the master tempo of the song.
• During groove playback, pad operation (press/release) is
detected using the quantize value (shortest note) as the detection
interval. This is aimed at matching the timing to other grooves
and songs played at the same time. Playing with a fast timing is
therefore facilitated by choosing a low quantize value. To play
with small timing shifts, choose a higher quantize setting.
