I have used my ASR-10 since 1995 on tours across the USA and to Japan, now using it in London. I use many large samples of analog Mini Moogs and Arp Odysseys, and complex sequences, thankfully never have had a failure onstage when I press start for the beginning of a song, or play the keyboard....thats impressive to me!

The ASR 10 is a classic and there is always someone hating. I give it a 4 out of 5 because the sequencer sucks but then thats what cubase and the like are for. 11 years in I have used and paid for a lot but I still favor the sampling power of the ASR 10. Many producers use it as a secret weapon. Get it if you can cause Im not getting rid of mine for under $1000. To all those on this get the new thats cool and all but you still need a selection of things to help with creativity, but then alot of you want the easy way, it sounds great but.......

These people here trying to review the ASR 10 sound so screwed up it ridiculs check this users here said:

"Once people wake up and start learning that this new gear on the market blows the ASR away you won't be able to get diddley for it"

responds:

Are you Freakin crazy? sure sounds like it!

Nothing blows the ASR-10 away nothing name one sampling keyboard machine? I thought so.

don't say Kurz or MPC the ASR was and is light years away still 10 years after creation.

the only thing the ASR-10 lacks is a pro sequencer but who needs that when so many others out there.

1. 128 midi channel controller 2. 1024 samples loaded at once. 3. Resample with high quality effects w/ext proces 4. High quality design never had problems in 10 years. 5. Aftertouch, Velocity keys, dynamic modulation, etc, etc, etc, 6. etc,etc,etc,etc,etc

and many many more even todays keyboard don't offer

another user said don't buy this if you want state of the art:

Responds:

this synth has been and still is state of the art.

who cares about the minor features that grasp todays newer samplers?

Well, I had to answer to all this. I've gigged a blue screen one for about 5 years now and the only time I had a problem was when a zip disk died on me, but that's not the ASR. I haven't heard a piano sound that can stand out live as much as this one does. Very bright and not for classical stuff. This beast has a punch to it which I haven't heard in other boards. But to be fair I haven't tried many others as I didn't need to.

Shame there isn't a standard rez filter, but there's a seperate effects disk for that one which will do just fine.

Sure it's dated and I'm getting worried about the endless disk swapping. I'm changing over to a more giggable machine for my band, but this one will stay if only for sentimental reasons.

Don't buy this if you want state of the art and if you do don't pay to much. I'd agree with the other people here that much has happened since. In my view it's a classic descendant of the Fairlight (which I also have). 5!

Regards
