This machine does it all. I really love the fact that I can resample loops and such, it makes producing my own loops easy as pie. My favorite is the fact that it can act as an external processor whcih make this thing the Swiss Army Knife for thge live Composer, Remixer or DJ.

I hate Ensoniq... Having said that I can now say "I love the ASR-X". This is the ONLY piece of Ensoniq gear that I would even consider buying. I did a number of tracks on this thing using an Orbit and the ASR-X ONLY. I love the filters, the "Sync damn near everything to MIDI" features, effects, sampling, BIT REDUCTION!, the whole nine... Except the sequencer gave me fits every now and then. See I used to sell these things and I racked up about 300+ hrs on our demo model so I know it intimately. Don't buy it without the Urban Dance Card or maxed out memory, the onboard sounds are a little crappy and you don't get much out of the standard sample memory. Check out the tracks I did with it at I'm into cheap used stuff now, but when the money's there for it, I will be adding an ASR-X to my lineup.

Yes, the sequence is shit. Some of the sounds from Urban Dance card distort. But this is supposed to be solved in version 2.62. Apart from those two items I like it, it sounds great and has lots of features. You do need scsi and Urban Dance board though. With these not being standard the machine will get quite expensive.

The X is a mean piece it aint no MC303. Like other folks have said, you should have a computer if you really want to do the tiny shit, this shouldn't be your only piece. I use it for almost all my Loops, drums, and some Vocal stuff. I have a AKAI for the CD ROMS side of things. FX, Filters slam. The sound quality kicks ass, after normalizing and adding some boost the shit that goes in comes out sounding way phat. Just cuts through the mix.

Don't buy it for the sequencer, it does suck. The pluses are the high resolution and groove quantize. Think of it as a killer Drum Pattern Seqeuncer and you'll be pretty stoked.

Disk is slow, SCSI is buggy sometimes but that's supposed to get fixed with 2.62.

Screen is small but not a problem once you get used to it. I hate the half assed BIG screens where they look cool and easy but are freakin slow and badly laid out. Get a computer...there's tons of other justifications save yourself some grief. I wish they'd stop putting sequencers in gear. Give us more Sounds, Editing, FX, Digital I/O faster processors and other goodies instead.

The one thing I really dig about this box is that it's always being used. For drums, vocals, the Urban Card, as stand alone effect, as a poor mans Sherman FB. It just plain out does a lot of shit. For the money I paid, I thinks I made my money back EZ> In ten years, when samplers have 200 pole filters and 1kajigabytes of memory I think i'll still find something for the X to do.

ENSONIQ get the SCSI solid, add DIGI I/O and you'll get a five.
