dude, I heard the ASRXs processors simply wasn`t powerful enough to be able to sequence properly and run the sampler so the sequencer will never be sorted out. A shame cos its still a great sampler, Ensoniq should`ve thought about what they were doing a little more in that respesct :( I`m not gonna score it officially, but I give it a 3 as a workstation but a 4.5 as a sampler :)

I've had Pro version for a year now and I have grown to love it more and more over time. Other than the often cited sequencer lag (which I hear could be corrected on a future OS update), I believe that this machine is the only machine out there with the ease, features, and sound quality to be called a total, professional, all in one production unit. I wouldn't trade this for any thing else out there because any musical ideas I ever have can be banged out of this machine with a little time and patience. This machine is going to be one of those everyone will want in 10 years(like the TR-808) when they relize what a classic piece of equipment it was.

I've used the ASR-X for over 2 years now, and i love the F#ck@ng thing. I only wish i had the Xtools program, so i can make nice multilayer stuff. If anyone can give me one (low/no price!?) please mail me.

The asr-x is one fuckin helluva machine, i love the asr-x to death, i've owned the asr-x and the mpc, at first i was dissapointed with the asr-x, i had a very early os, and it was the black faced edition, i wasn't ready to wait for the eprom upgrade, but even with the shitty eprom and with many bugs i love the machine, the sequencer isn't that great, but it isn't that bad...you can't go back in the step sequencer, but so many sequencers are like that that its' not worth bitching about, it kind of makes programming the sampler more fun, everyone says the mpc's sequencer kills the asr-x, i don't even think the mpc has that great of a sequencer, it's very overrated, sure the real time quantize is hella fun, and makes tracks overly easy to do any idiot who can hit the pads can make a track, well anywayz, i'd have to say as a module the asr-x owns, the mpc is a little too archaic in it's sampler area, attack and just decay is not enough and the mpc2k sounds like shit, the asr-x has such better a/d converters and d/a converters...creates the best bass in the world, great great bass response, as well as it has such a great sampler, great filters, great envelopes, great effects, i just love the machine now that i sold it before, and bought an mpc i was able to see how good the asr-x really is, i sold the mpc, and i've been checking out the tracks i've done on the mpc vs the asr-x, and the ones on the asr-x sound 10000x better, very nice warmth, vs the sterility of the mpc, and it's true the cards do own, i'm excited to get a new asr-x an asr-x pro this time, gunna get it fully expanded iwth 8 outs and internal zip drive+expansion card+66 mb of ram:), hehe using a software sequencer, shit will be sweet, the asr-x is a beast and it owns over all else...
