Agree superb in combination with MPC. Have both love both MPC for seq and ASR for sampling. With current used prices couldn't think of any better sampler than the asrx. Needs OS 2.67 Anything underneath will probebly make you go completely bonkers with fustration. Error messages with loading samples etc. 2.67 has proven to be very stable. Not a problem since. Great sound I use it for basses,fx,leads,loops drums,strings,synthesis as a stand alone effects unit and a lot of resampling ofcourse great filters! Seq can be a handy scratchpad.

I really like the ASR-X bacause (1) it's damn near the same as the ASR-X-PRO (2) it's a mean sampler/re-sampler (3) it's effects are good, but the filters are amazing! (4) people sleep on these machines because they think it's suppose to be an MPC rival. Sure, folks compare the two, but each machine has it's strengths and weaknesses... put them together, and you got magic in your hands. The sequencer is terrible, but then again, it's not made for that, just like the MPC isn't made to re-sample. I would never part with either machine, and I strongly urge anyone with an MPC to get one.

I use the ASR mainly for it's effects, and the sampler. The sequencer isn't all that great but that isn't what this machine is all about. It's a sampling/re-sampling workstation. I really believe they just added the sequencer in there to make it a little more attractive. I also have an MPC2000xl, but it doesn't read anything less than a 16bit file, can't edit files half as well, and you'll have to spend an extra $300.00 to get effects that can't compete with what's in this machine. If you have either machine, it will need the other. Both work great together, plus you can get an ASR-X for less than $500! Don't bother spending the extra bux on the ASR-X PRO if you just need effects and a sampler, the black unit will more than do it's job. The X-PRO is a great unit, but if you want to edit sounds, add effects, use extremely good filters, this is the machine to get. Also, pick one up now while everyone else is sleeping on it. I really believe this will be a collectable piece in a few years.

I haved an ASRX and a MPC 2000 and I can only say if you want a good (sounding) sampler with great FX get an ASRX if you want a tight sequencer get the MPC. The ASRX sequencer is fucking useless and the MPC sampler very limited. Also I think MPC is seriously overpriced. I would say get an second hand black ASRX fully expanded for around 800 $ US and get an external sequencer like a ATARI for cheap and your all set.

I have the ASR-X Pro, and here are the features that I like: The effects are awesome, with professional quality tweakable effects such as delay, reverb, distortion, chatterbox, step sync, flanger, pitch shift, compression, and parametric EQ, also, the ability to sample from the outputs and hear the effects in real time on the audio inputs is awesome. The pads are laid out nicely, the build is solid, and it sounds great. The sequencer is very uninituitive, but I use a Yamaha RM1X to sequence the samples, and the knobs on the RM1X can control the effects, filters, and pitch. This is a completely awesome sampler. The sequencer could be useful for making drum patterns, but an external sequencer would make this thing do whatever you want. Also, it can be upgraded to 66 megs of ram, you can have a SCSI chain running from it, and you can add 8 Auxillary outputs on it, plus another ROM chip for even more sounds. What I don't like about it? Absolutely nothing.
