The Ensoniq ASR-10 is &quot;God in a Box&quot; in my opinion. You can do everything

with it. It samples wonderfully. I used a roland sh-3 to sample many

sounds and nothing is lost nor gained. It's so complex that I can't believe

they sold one to me for only 2100 us dollars brand new.

This is basically a great machine, but Ensoniq seems to be abbandoning it.

The last OS-upgrade is 18 months ago, and still no individual resonant filters!

Weak SCSI-implementation as far as Mac/PC communication goes.

Goes hot, (heats up your room) but never crashes. Super-fast interface if

you get into it. Stereo editing slightly buggy.

Can be used as superb sounding stand alone FX unit. (1/4 DP-4)

I feel this is a great machine but...Why the hell Ensoniq won`t provide us with

a brand new OS upgrade(I would REALLY need those individual res.filters !!)?

So easy to use(Even though lacking graphical on screen editing(!))I wonder so

few people actually use it...A superb sound quality. Plug in one of those Zips

or HDs and groove away!!! Oh, and don`t forget onboard FX unit, especially those

bedroom musicians(like myself...) should really appreciate it. It is a pure sampler

after all: No presets but hey, who really cares? But please Ensoniq, please give

us new OS will you(those filters added you know...)

This is a great synth, however, Ensoniq needs to do something about their quality

control. I went through four keyboards before I got one that worked. I had a

whole range of problems from not being able to edit the end time of a sample to

to a faulty screen, to old samples getting stuck in RAM so that new samples were

tweeking out with old sounds that had been deleted from memory. It's a drag that

the jazz drive has a formatting conflict with the keyboard. I used a Bernoulli

230 meg drive to record on and it was the biggest crash prone piece of shit.

I'm definitely not impressed with all of the hoops one has to jump through to use

the audio tracks to record real time, song length performances. Bouncing is a pain

in the ass, and often times does'nt even work. My drive ate a bass track that

dissapeared into oblivion. This is a great machine, but if you bought it with the

hope of being able to do real full fleged performances on it without a deck, your

living a pipe dream. Who wants to bounce every time a new track is layed down.

Mixing as you go is impossible.

Has to be one of the best samplers hands down. Very user friendly. But..know this... bugs, bugs, and even more bugs. Man I knew it was to good to true. Also I would vote Ensoniq to be the WORST company in the world because they dont stand by their product. I have had trouble with my ASR some many times, and to call them is a nightmare. I sent it in for repaires once, and they lost my case, power plugs, I surprised it ever made it back. And it was still broken. And they broke my balls about replacing what was lost. They replaced it all with a drum kit. COME ON. Just fix my keyboard and give me back my stuff. What the hell is going on over there. Anyway my rating is not just about the prouduct, its about the company. And they suck.........But when its working, and not breaking down, its a damn good sampler.
