I am JUST starting to scratch the surface of this thing (ive only had it for a day and a half) and im telling you its sooooo great!!!!!!!! The fx r superb... like i mean really really good... awesome for processing. the sampler is shit easy to use, i was pumpin out my own re sampled beats after about 5 minutes of reading the manual. the only thing i dont like about it (so far) is the ammount u can do with it- because the display is so small i find myself traveling thru menus for so long just seeing all the cool schtuff i can do to the sample i just made. my suggestion when u first get this thing- plug in your cd player or your technics, play a good song, and just start running thru all the effects presets and seeing what u like best and getting a feel for the thing. sample some beats, add fx, resample, assign to pads, have fun! and hurry up, ensoniq is blowing these things out right now to make room for the Pro model, i got mine FULLY LOADED less the output expander for 900 bucks!!!!! thats right 34 megs of ram and scsi for 900 bucks... hurry up before theyre all gone... ~Dr Xex~

aiite, i've had a chance to really get into the nitty gritty with the machine. there is nothing in the world wrong with the sequencer. You just have to navigate and get accustommed to the many quantize templates that there are on the machine. the newest os (2.67) also tightens some of the sequencing, not to mention aids in the loading/saving of aif files. this is going to be a staple in many studio's for a time to come.

the asr-x is a great little machine. but that's not to say it has some serious downfalls. SCSI & exp-3 board need to be standard. RAM prices are so cheap i uploaded mine to full capacity for around 50$, so i aint complaining about the RAM. Nice efx, ease of use is a 10. but the biggest downside to this thing is that the sequencer SUCKS!!!!! tryin to get your drum patterns to loop half the time is aggravating to the N-th degree. but sampling is powerful, and it's easy to navigate the whole system. the machine is the bomb with the exception of the sequencer and the scsi/exp-3 board not being standard.

The timing on this thing is the worst I have ever seen. You cannot use it to make professional tracks, samples do not trigger on time if you have a lot going on at once, beats slow down and loops don't trigger on time. DO NOT BUY THIS UNIT, you will regret it. I spent my money on it only to find that I can't use it for anything cause the timing sucks so bad. What use are good effects and filters if your music won't play back in exact time?? If you program even six notes with long decays/releases on the same sequencer event the beats start going out of time, especially with loops and samples. This is the most unprofessional music product I have ever seen, DO NOT BUY IT, ENSONIQ are ripping you off.
