Greetz to all ASR users around the world. I got my ASR in 1993 and have never experienced any difficulties since. The only thing was my zip drive died on me twice. I keep reading about the problems with the seq mode. I got a Triton as a sequencer and soundengine. My strategy is using the ASR 10 as a stand alone Sampler. This is what it does best. B.t.w. I us it live with my band and it does a great job on Brass sections. It blows away any other Brass section on Triton/Trinity. The only thing I need is an outputexpander. I am so sorry I never saw the use of it before. Plzzz help me to find one.

I have wanted an ASR 10 since I first saw one in the early 90's. I now own one and all the previous positive reveiws ring true. With the ASR its all about the sound. The only thing the MPC has over the ASR 10 is the ability to erase sounds while you are playing a loop and the replay them until you get it right. Other than that its no contest. The board is only limited by the operators imagination. If you want one check out Ebay. I recently picked up an output expander from Ebay and I saw seversal boards and racks there as well. Also sounds and the updated operating system can be found on WWW.SYNTAUR.COM I went and met those guys in New Bransfel Texas and they are true masters of this board and they were very helpful. GOOD LUCK

Pheew, the ASR is one hell of a keyboard I have a final version (lcd screen sn 21853) fully expanded (scsi, digital, outputexpander) one.

True, an occasional 144 reboot (about once every 2 months), very heavy, 16 meg limit, cripple akai import ( use translator from chiken systems instead!), but what a sound! None of all the akais , emus, rolandsi had or my Ppg waveterm can match this . The fx are killer, want some puchy drums , use the inverted expander algoritm , tweak and modulate with the wheel. It kicks all my vst plugins's butts.

I will buy another rack version for spare, It is the only sampler wich improves on the original sound, surely not neutral but very high quality, recommended as a sound machine!

I have used the Ensoniq ASR-10 and its predecessor EPS-16 for 10+ years. I am admittedly biased in my opinion, but I would simply own nothing else. My projects have included tracks that have been featured in live plays and musicals. The tracks were recorded straight from the ASR-10 to CD and when heard through the house sound system, is the closest thing to a live rhythm section or orchestra that you could ever imagine. I recently purchased a Roland VS-2480CD digital recorder which provides some useful graphics among other features. But I have discovered that my ASR-10 accomplishes most, if not all, of the same tasks. One down side to the ASR-10 may be the user interface which requires mastering in order to perform certain tasks. However, there is absolutely nothing that I cannot do on my ASR-10 workstation. It is truely limitless in terms of creativity. One also must keep in mind that the ASR-10 is a workstation. Live performance is not its strong point because samples/sounds must be loaded from external media unlike keyboards that store all samples on-board. However, the ASR-10 appears on stage with many professional acts because of its undeniable true-sound ability.

The best, bar none. Working in a studio equipped with a Motif and a Triton, the ASR still gets the most play, and for you pop hip-hop junkies, you'd be suprised at how many hits I hear on the radio as we speak using the ASR.....hmmmm.....P-I-M-P by 50 & Snoop is the first to come to mind.
