I've had and played with a bunch of samplers like the Triton, MPC's, Yamaha etc.. Many of them are nice as hell but for some reason I keep going back to the ASR. It's real a simple yet deep machine. I paid over $2000.00 for it in 96 and I still love it to this day. The sequencer is ok but it's no where like an MPC. I use an MPC 2000XL to sequence the complex stuff but for a quick idea I'll do it on the ASR. I keep it connected to my mixer and sample from a turntable. Do a quick edit, add effects, resample it or whatever and go. It's a heavy ass keyboard so you'll probably wanna get in shape if you plan to haul it around. The ASR-X's read the ASR-10 samples so thats a plus for those machines but the ASR-10 is "ol faithful". One thing though is that technical support for this machine is hard to come by. Also it doesn't read wav files or any other formats for that matter.BUT you can fit a tom of samples on one disk. If you want a PHAT sound get an ASR-10.............

I love my asr10! It's very easy to use and sounds great. For an old sampler it rocks. also if you have one then check out waveboy for a resonant filter effects disk. This adds so much to the asr. I sometimes think about getting a new sampler but I don't think they are worth the cash. Pick up an asr10 and you will be laying down tracks in no time

I have had my ASR-10 for about six years. At the time of purchase I wanted the self contained studio aspect of the machine, and for that purpose it shined. While I am not a tech professional and have not been in the market for a new instrument in many years, I still cannot think of another machine that includes the ease of use with quality of sound, good price, and PLAYABILITY. I have never had a problem with crashing, but I have never used the ASR for more than four hours at a time, nor have I used up all of its memory (my machine now has four megs). Now, after six years and ALOT of time on the road (I have used this machine for any situation in which I have needed a digital instrument) It appears that I do have a hardware problem, but I have never before had to service the machine and have used it for alot of gigging and travelling. As a jazz player, I like the feel of the ensoniq synth action better than any other I have played. To this date, the piano sounds are respectible and I have yet to find an organ sample that I like better than the ASR organ. The built in sequencer gives me an opportunity to quickly create simple demos of new tunes for my quintet and the effects are simply brilliant. I think the instrument is still quite relevent despite its age, and I'm sure you can find one for a very good price these days.

Hey, My comments has to be 9 of 10, Pros is sound quality, FX, resampling and nice keyboard. Editing is a dream and it is very quick. Building quality is exceptional Cons. No res-filters, only 8 instruments, Timing, but I sequence it from Cubase now and have no problem what so ever. I very rarely face any bugs and its on for about 1 month before I switch it off (actually!) I do gets very hot so I can almost fry an egg on it but thats perfect. Now I anyhow wants an ASR-x, since the only things Im missing with it is in the "x" 16 intsruments, rez-filters. Very good indeed!
