I just purchased an ASR10 and love it.. I know they can tend to be a little moody but I love the history and the support you get with this sampler.. I just wanted to know if anyone can give me some tips to start me off in the right direction.. converting wav. files, filtering,manipulating sounds,and where to pick up some phat sounds.. any input is welcomed. Thanks

What a hunk of junk! Least it's nice to know I wasn't the only one who had problems (the input jacks died within 1-2 months of owning it) The display sucks compared to the EMu E64 that I happily replaced it with. The effects? Well, it's Ensoniq effects, and not that great at that. Who in the world came up with 37 instruments per bank was it? (It's been awhile) That was very annoying to deal with in comparison to the EMu. Now my E64 has basically been replaced by a PC running GigaStudio96, which again, kicks the crap outta the Emu, which kicks the crap outta the ASR10. I have no nostalgic feelings for that unit. It was difficult to use, the build quality was horrible, and the sound wasn't all that. Do yourself a favor - if you have ANY plans on aquiring this thing, look for something else.

I know my Asr-10 pretty well I would say. Last night I made an amazing sample and I was so afraid I would lose it , only because I havent had a crash in such a long time I thought one was due. So before I got any deeper in mangling the sample I located a blank disk so I could save it just in case. Well I saved it and continued with my song. I took a break several hours later and when I came back , guess what was on the LED screen? Yep ...Error 320 / Reboot? HA HA ..

I knew it was going to happen and I was so thankful that I followed my instinct.

I really do know my ASR....and even though he errors ... I will always love him...(does that sound gay?) Oh well .

I had an ASR-10 for 4 yrs and LOVED it. It still has the best onboard effets of any sampler I've heard. BUTTT, I had to sell it because: a) Support ended for it (took it to the shop at least once a year for something), b) Needed more than 16mg of RAM, and c) Decided to get the latest technology. Well, I bought an EMU E-synth and love it too, but the effets aren't as good and the architecture isn't as easy to implemnet as the ASR-10. It also doesn't offer the variety of what you can do with samples (ie, actually tweak the physical sample in real time, offer many types of looping algarithms to choose from, etc.). I'm hoping that since EMU have bought Ensoniq that they will build some monster sampler that includes a lot of Ensoniqs ingenious sampling architecture. Emu's is much deeper as far as sound design, but the Ensoniq's were easier to build instant tracks right in the machine!

I love my ASR-10, but Emu/Ensoniq has completely dropped support for the unit. I had a few characters on my display go out, and they have very firmly informed me that there will be no replacements available... EVER. Unfortunately, this makes buying one rather risky - if it breaks, you can't get it fixed. However, I can't let go of mine, it's too good a machine with too many features and cool effects, so now I must learn to get around the missing character problem somehow.
