  • My Baby!

    Ensoniq ASR-10Published on 09/28/16 at 04:39
    The texture you get from this guy is like if the MPC 3000 and the SP1200 had a baby... A sound that's sorta right in between the two machines that I so dearly love! After sampling, the keys make it super easy to find that sweet spot for where the sample sounds the best... not to mention that you can obviously play any sound melodically if you are a trained keyboardist. The effects are nutty if you can get a hold of those after market distortion discs! The resample feature makes the grittiest sounds ever! I kinda gotta have this in my studio because of it's own sound personality... like how? Oh, ya know, no big deal... it just sounds like the first couple Wu Tang albums ;)...

  • GREAT SOUNDING SAMPLER

    Ensoniq ASR-10Published on 11/13/12 at 16:53
    The ASR-10 stands for the Advanced Sampling Recorder - a completely digital music production studio. It's a 16-bit sampler that came in both keyboard and rack-mount versions. It shipped with 2 MB of sample memory which could be expanded to 16 MB for a few minutes of stereo cd-quality sampling time. It lets you choose from sample rates of 30 to 44.1 kHz and has all the professional sample editing functions you would expect to find from a pro sampler including autolooping, volume smoothing, normalize, crossfading, and time comp/exp. Even resampling through its effects, EQ, etc. is possible!

    The ASR-10 stands for the Advanced Sampling Recorder - a completely digital music production studio. It's a 16-bit sampler that came in both keyboard and rack-mount versions.

It lets you choose from sample rates of 30 to 44.1 kHz and has all the professional sample editing functions you would expect to find from a pro sampler including autolooping, volume smoothing, normalize, crossfading, and time comp/exp. Even resampling through its effects, EQ, etc. is possible!

    UTILIZATION

    What's special about the ASR-10 is that it is a sampler using the synthesizer architecture of Ensoniq's classic line of synths from the SD-1 to the ESQ-1. Your samples are stored as part of its WaveSample memory. The ASR-10 can hold 127 WaveSamples, which can also consist of its two multimode digital filters, the LFO, one random noise generator, three envelope generators (hard-wired to the pitch, filter cutoff, and amplitude), and a modulation matrix with 15 routable modulation sources. Up to eight layers of WaveSamples can be combined to create your final sound. In this light, the ASR-10 basically looks like an advanced TranseWave (waveform modulation) synthesizer in which YOU create its WaveSamples!

    SOUNDS

    The ASR-10's sequencer has 16-tracks and with its 31 voices of polyphony you can create some pretty complete musical performances. The sequencer (reminiscent of the SD-1 and VFX-SD workstations) provides real time and looped recording modes, 96 PPQ clock resolution, an auto-locate function, punch in/out, and other useful features. And the ASR-10 can sample while the sequencer is playing. It can store up to 80 sequences or patterns which can be chained into a song (only one song can be in memory).

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is a fantastic keyboard, and it has been a staple in Hip-Hop Production for years! If you enjoy keyboard samplers, don't waste any more time - get this.

    SOUNDS

    The sound of the ASR proven and renames through the ads and sites are: THE BIG SOUND.
    the dynamics of this machine is really thundering.
    MRIT of rotary filters.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Since his beginners around 1992. I like the Swiss Army knife ct this sampler. downside for the weight scne
    volatile memory and without the option ROM. the machine is robust, when I think of km I did with it.
    the keyboard is good trs and the yield curves vlocits matre in a studio as a key driver Matra and other synth or samplers. Obviously it expensive for the trs silent era but since 92 is a pice rest matress
    in my config and the sound of my compositions.

    UTILIZATION

    Usage is relatively simple, fast and intuitive. The huge manual that is very rarely need to be consulted. Ergonomics has been studied in Ensoniq! J'vous to say. Yet few buttons to very many functions. Using the sequencer is an example of simplicity and efficiency. Ditto for the sampling or application of effects. The creation of loops is a breeze with a little practice. This sampler of 1992 is comparable to competitors in this area even today.
    My only regret: that damn 1.44 MB floppy drive that I can not obviously be replaced by nothing more powerful (ZIP, CD, HD) because I do not have the famous SP-3 SCSI interface that was an option. Those who have one to offer me are welcome;)

    SOUNDS

    What you say? You save yourself all you want in this gem.
    We speak often of the "big sound Ensoniq". I can not tell you too, I have tried as Ensoniq. However the brand has a very famous and important library of sounds available on the Internet and then party the benefit of the sampler is that it is unlimited. In addition to the happy owners of a SCSI interface (sniff), they can no longer access the sound Akai and Roland with the OS version 3. And now everything is converted from one format to another while ... Only limit to 16 MB of memory that are "only" a little over 4 minutes at 44.1 Khz.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have this wonder since its release in late 1992, I wanted to buy an EPS16 +, but this new model was coming so ... I broke my piggy bank. I think it is still great today. And as I rediscovered because I acquired from quality materials. No more than 2 micro balls. I have a microphone that allows me to realize quality recordings, a sound card that allows me to put any input what I want and I just received yesterday my 16 MB from the States. Is more than.
    Seriously, even today after the evolution of PC, virtual instruments, sequencers ...
    he always manages both the ASR and did not fade before the competition. It is a real "Home Studio" on its own: sampling / sequencing / effects.
    My only regret is not having SCSI and my fear is that it breaks down: when to repair this gem today and at what price?

    SOUNDS

    The converters are hot, the sound is enjoyable and well Dfine trs
    the samples have a color and a slight grain "nasal" individuals close to the E-mu ESI that I possd 4000.
    multi fx is really good trs: reverbs, delays, distos, simulated amp, chorus, flanger, phaser, eq, comp, de-esser.
    possibility of multi fx for some patch like: delay, chorus or delay, phaser etc.
    the editing parameters are complete at a glance the effects section is an integral part of sound creation and is not a gadget.
    There is also a resonant filter Fx diskette waveboys edite by which the quality is excellent.
    The momentum is clearly very satisfactory.

    a musical point of view can have a whole set CRER percussions, bass, pads, leads

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had three months
    most: sound, fxs
    Cons: * The system sometimes crashes and bug (error 129 ---> reboot?) necessarily save work often.
    * Fragile floor of sampling (too little to the clipping circuit hs).
    * The machine weighs 20Kg which requires some logistics for the transport )
    Q / p: 400 euro bought used but the floor Hs sampling after 2 months not happy because he daut have between 200 and 300 euros for a repair.
    du11/02/07 edition: in fact it was the fuse that sampling had dropped, they are replaced and works well!
    against access by fuses requiring disassembly of the motherboard ... fragile and dlicat
    I intend to keep this machine, but if I had the funds I will opt for a computerized config with a sound card or Motu and Digidesign type software with a sampling sequencer but it will be as ergonomics ais impeccable and transportation, however I think that this solution does not exist yet or it's the custom.

    I will not have much to say again that everything I read on previous opinions.

    Among the Samplers / Workstations that have marked their time, the ASR-10 is probably the one that was appreciated by the musicians. He had a sound library (which could stall in ROM) regardless of the RAM, already function upload a sample or a bank with the ignition, the most comprehensive compatibility with SCSI hard drives of the time and above all, unparalleled ergonomics while on versions Keyboards (we agree).

    Even Michel R., producer and husband of Eve Angeli, using three at the same time in 1995. I hope he will forgive me for having appointed. :-) Michael if you read me! ..

    UTILIZATION

    Happiness. Nothing to add with all that was said.

    SOUNDS

    Brass and Drums rarely equaled. Found elsewhere in the ZR76 ROM.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I always liked this machine. I had one. What has always fascinated me is how the musicians could accumulate ASR10 ASR er-Rack, while many others Samplers existed at the time. In fact from 1990 to 1995 there were two schools. The AKAIens and ENSONIQiens. Although it sold many of Emax and EmaxII Paris (cuckoo CMDM and Francis M.) but it was more a nostalgic relationship with EmulatorII or III to the peculiarity of the Emax, although supplanted the market dynamics, but not in sound quality.
    It was on the point that ASR-10 has built its reputation.
    Subtlety and dynamics.

    You forgive me for dessert ...:-)

    Dynamic compliance without problem.

    15/01/08 I notice that the sound is warmer at the output jack stereo headphone output that spares ... so be it recorded a headphone output or you buy a pre amp tube multitrack.

    OVERALL OPINION

    J has been using about 2 years and I will not let go any time soon.
    the sound that kills the squenceur is to forget ...
    j had an Akai S2800, nothing to do ... sounds solo taient ds transparent but that has returned to the house mix, a lightweight filter veiled sound aaaaaaaahhhhh am nervait.avec the asr the sounds come out hot and often better optient j mix live out of the bte rather than swing and mix the samples to the result on the PC cold (I cursed the pc, great hardware!). j I as a mpc 3000 which is a squenceur rolls, sound: clear, clear, dynamic but I prfere asr10 of heat, the sudden I connect the two machines, as MPC3000 sequencer, sampler as AS10, keyboard command midi.je talks to pass because I've gained a asq10 d akai, the same as MPC3000 sequencer, can be some diffrence insignifientes because the bone is not the same n and I will sell the mpc 3000 for I used it not the party sampler.
    jl I buy 700 euros of ocaz (scsi option, memory full, spares outlets, with a syqwest 270 mb), not expensive at all for the feedback, let go your PC and buy the real stuff. the akai S2800 m had cost 11,000 francs al epoque and n has not reached the ankle of Ensoniq.
    the asr al epoque cost a fortune but the people who have had the well-cushioned and still need the use of course.

    The dynamic is exellent bass boost function of the killings. and the effects are good without exception.
    Domage's really our time no one can pull out a machine of this Tramp.


    OVERALL OPINION

    I think it's a machine possessed at least once in their life. The value for money is good, it costs more that expensive in our era and this sampler because of its sound quality explodes all concurence whether soft or hardware. Stuck him in the ass or a asq10 mpc60 for sequenseur seen their derisory price and you have the config I think ultimate in sampling and for the programing of your sounds
