I'VE ONLY HAD MY S10 FOR 2 YEARS, I BOUGHT IT SECOND HAND(OBVIOUSLY)FOR R1000-00 +- $160-00. THE DISK DRIVE PACKED UP RECENTLY, YOU CAN'T GET SPARES FOR THE CRAPPY QUICK DISK DRIVE. I OPENED THE UNIT AND I SEE THE DRIVE IS A MITSUMI. ONLY PROBLEM I'VE GOT IS THAT IV'E GOT QUITE A LOT OF SAMPLES ON DISK, WHICH I HAVE NOT DUMPED ONTO MY PC YET. LETS BE FRANK IT IS A START TO SAMPLING, AND IF YOU CAN'T AFFORD THE PRICE OF AN AKAI S1000 OR ROLAND S750 WHAT ELSE CAN YOU GET FOR THE SAME PRICE. I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT YES THE SOUND QUALITY IS CRAP BUT I LOVE IT

The S10 will not sync to midi clock, but it will sync to a click track.

i had one of these a few years ago. i fixed a small marshall practice amp , and traded some guy for his s10. it had a broken drive. so basically i just bought it to use as a controller. I was able to fix the drive fairly easily, and i got it to work O.K. before you buy this thing you must realize that it is a SORRY excuse for a sampler. buy it just as a toy. DO NOT HAVE ANY EXPECTATIONS CONCERNING THE USE OF THIS THING> it has an arp. but it is not midi syncable, and it doesn't send arped. midi out. IF you can find disks you are lucky, but CURSED!!!! there is only a limited number of quick disks in the world, and the don't age well at all!!! bottom line: buy this as a 10th keyboard that you have no intention of seriously using. keeping your expectations low will stop you from bashing your head into a wall. email me if you want to know how i fixed the drive!

Yeah... sure, it breaks down alot, you cant buy disks for it, and the keys might not all work, BUT if you take that piece of crap and sample some feedback at four different harmonic levels and run a click track into the switch pedal, set the arpeggiator to sync to the input, and run rythm from a drum track into there, you can write a sweet lead on your workstation, and trigger the S10 with that same midi data, and have cool sounding arpeggiated harmonics going in time with your lead. That is the only thing I can find to do with it :(
