ATTENTION!!! For all ASQ10 users with a faint display: I ordered a new EL-Foil at Midi-Rakete in Germany. For only Euro 40,- they send you a new one. It is easy to put the new one in (see there website www.midi-rakete.de) and it works like new!

I have two ASQ-10's. One at my home studio and one in my NYC studio. Many commercial award winning projects have come from these units. Their platform is easy and fast to work with. According to AKAI, the RS232 port was never implemented. If you go to AKAI's website there is some info and contact numbers about the lastest OS version for this box. They will mail you an EPROM for $$? but won't warranty it if you install it yourself. As far as the backlight is concerned, I purchased one of those 6 inch strip lights that you can stick (literally, they give you stick pads) on a rack bar or shelf, depending on your rig, just above the unit. It does the trick for about $15 or $20. Available at most hardware or lighting stores.

Although moving notes is'nt very aesy on the ASQ10 sequencer, I realy am a fan of this rugged machine. Only one time it left me in big trouble. I saved a song on the floppy disk and after that I could not recall any of the (15!)previous saved songs because the titels were not visible anymore. Somehow the ASQ10 did not wrote the titel index string. If anyone recognites this problem, please mail me. M. Brandes

Just posting more info (if anyone with an ASQ happens to stumble across this page...)

1. Even with v3.10 (from Roger Linn), the RS-232c has no function.

2. I've been told that even if you replace the LCD/backlit assembly, the back light will only last you approximately 2 years. (and it seems no one knows of a cheap replacement). In the mean time I'm taking the advice someone offered me: Get a small cheap halogen lamp, and place it above the display. If you adjust the contrast, you can see the screen perfectly.
