I've had the ASRX for a while after my last review found out how to use all the effects I still don't like the filters that much but overall the effects are killer you can tweak them in many ways it has all the envelope functions you need I record a lot of loops with live instruments I can put effects on it and make the instruments sound tottaly different the sounds are cheesy but you can use disks from the Roland series and the Ensoiniq series the only problem I can find with this machine is it's sequencer and filters but I recently started sequencing with software and with software sequencing you're damn near unstopable with this thing all my friends have motif's tritons and MPC's and there going broke buying this shit when people hear my shit they can't believe it's done with an ASRX EPS and software sequencing. P.S. in my last review I meant motif not mirage you cant even compare that eighties sampling keyboard to the asrx I meant motif not mirage in my last review you

I got it fully loaded w. an external harddrive for a couple of months ago. I was up and running, sampling, resampling and sequencing, within an hour. Dead easy to use.

I only wish there was more visual information available when in step sequencer mode.

Def1, Check out ALL of the ASR's FX editing capabilities. You'll find that it has high and low bandpass,and resonant filters. It also has +/-12db filter cutoff. Also, have you fully expanded the memory? It's expandable to 34MB of RAM, which should be more than sufficient for just about any type of music production (3 min./stereo, 6 min./ mono sampling time). Keep working with it and you'll find more and more suprising things this box is capable of...

the asr-x IS the piece to get if your into hip-hop! i make house and hip-hop and i love this thing. the only difference between the asrx and pro is the memory upgrade. i have the black asrx with 35 meg of ram and its more than enough. the fx are by far the best EVER in a sampler OR a synth! the URBAN DANCE PROJECT board (exp-3) is the shit! mad loops and beats and shit. you should get one. the samples on this really work for hip hop,they have that raw gritty feel. trust me,the asrx with the urban dance board will become classics soon. i have the scsi adapter and 8 output expander on mine. right now im trying to get the dance board,its VERY hard to find. as far as sequencing goes ill give you some advice,get the 2.67 rom upgrade from sythaur productions. it will tighten up the sequence timing,although for hip-hop you dont want it super tight. also you could make a song on the asrx,save it to disk as a 1-sequence file,and put it in a computer -based sequencer,i have performer 2.7 and then quantize it,then take the floppy from the computer after you quantized it and load it back into the asrx,all problems solved! ensoniq has the phattest sound library available. it has a cd of horns by CHICAGO at its incredible! it has a JAZZY JEFF cd-rom, and many others! it even has a ensoniq version of L.A RIOTS cd-rom! i originally had a mpc2000 but took it back when the x came out! i love this thing and you will too!

I have a ASRX and a EPS classic only had the ASR for 3 weeks and am already freakin it. It's real easy to use, even though I don't fully know how to use it I can scale samples and play them from my EP and play the presets out of my EP some of the effects are ill however the basics like Highpass lowpass filter and other things aren't there. Most of the preset sounds are some shit it has nice rhodes thats about it. The memory is pretty low if you wanna cut samples up or use loops you can forget about it theres not enough Sampling time on the thing. Ussauly I cut smples on the ASR and use my EP for whatever Else I need. The sequencer isn't that great and step recording is hard as hell to use alot of my friends have Mirages Tritons and MPC's The ASR is better than the MPC in some ways you Play the samples you scale on an MPC and it doesn't have preset sounds but Mirage kicks the ASR's ass for the price though there's no better smpler out there definitely not the SP 1200 you sample 8 bit 12 bit even 1 bit if you want on the ASR when I learn how to use the ASR better I'll probably be bannanas on it For it's price it's probably the best out there.
