i have the asrx pro. i love the sounds and the sample time, i added more ram so it's loaded to the max. but this damn thing keeps crashing and the sequencer is the worst!!! i called tech support and they lied to me. they said cleaning the ram slots would fix the problem.there is a real bad bug in the os and they need to fix this piece of junk and send out a free exp/board to boot!!!! i have the 3.04 os and it is just as bad as the others. i/m thinking of sueing them for this shit!!! they know it has flaws and they not helping. you can't preset the bars on a pattern befor you record!! if they fix the os and send out a free exp/board improve the sequencer, i will call a truce and all will be forgot. emu please fix this big red box it could rule if you do!!!! and while you at it you guy's need to make a new sp-12000 with 66meg's of ram standerd kool efx 16 track sequencer large lcd lit screen and a smart media slot for storage instead of floppy, make it easy to use like the sp-12 and the sp-1200 and you will have a winner for ever!! i still use my sp-12 to this day. them new mp-7 command stations are kool, but no sample functions. build a true all in one unit for the producers on the go, so we don't have to lugg alot of gear around and make a case for it too!!! standerd. who comes up with the idea's for new gear anyway??? you need to listen more to us!!! we buy the stuff. i can say this, i like tough well built product's that have what we want!!!! got that??? don't use that cheap plastic like on the triton!!! i hate that board for that alone!! i will never buy that flimsy board, i don't care who likes it!!! fix the asrxpro now!!!!!

....it arrived as one pig of an annoying machine,several years down the line i'm still exploring the myriad possibilities.No doubt about it its not user friendly atall but everything that comes out of it sounds good,especially the fx.........it really can do most things apart from sequence,dont bother trying, use it with another sequencer....be patient its worth it

I bought the red asrx pro and really couldn't be more happy with it....Its true that its not quite the all in one machine they say as its standard built in sounds are quite plain...However as a sampler it rocks....Its just a great value for the money...These things have gotten so much bad press that you can find people on ebay practically giving them away. As far as the sequencer is concerned I have not had any problems with it although I'm sure that the akai mpc's are better for sequencing...But you can't worry about that too much, especially if you have a good sequencer like logic or cubase. Quite simply the effects on this thing are incredible. Theres just so many subtle changes you can make. Even the presets are awesome. These are 24 bit effects so I'm sure that even though I haven't heard the mpc 2000 I'm sure these beat its 16 bit effects....In short I guess it comes down to what you want. If you want a classic midi sequencer with the best drum pads get the mpc. If you want a sampler that can give you 66 megs of ram and is useful for more than just drum programming get the asrx. I should point out though that the asrx pro can be a pain to upgrade in ram. Make sure you read up on expanding it before you buy one. They have very specific needs and not just any 72 pin simm seems to get the job done. Other than that......it rocks.
