Asr X Question
Ok, I have been looking into the ASR-X, and i have learned that the sequencer on it sucks.
I am wondering, could you sequence the ASR X into a computer sequencer and then put the sequence back onto the ASR X for playing it without the computer?
Does this make sense?
Help me out please.
You can sequence the sounds on the Asr x without transferring back and forth, read up on MIDI..i'm not sure what you're asking, or if you really understand what sequencers do..
what you can do is midi your asr to your computer, use cakewalk sonar (my personal favorite software sequencer) to do your sequencing..and then save the file as a .mid on your floppy disk. the X reads midi files, so you would be able to take your sequences that you made in cakewalk, and play them using the X sequencer by itself.
and no, i never noticed the sequencer being as "bad" as the hype..it has never skipped or crashed on me..but it is a bit simple and doesnt have many options to choose from. it definitely takes alot of patience to put together complete tracks using just the X sequencer, especially if you want to make changes later on..props to those who can do it..but i'd rather use an external sequencer.
I use the Black X with os 2.67. I did that with just the X.
dont listen to what anyone says about the sequencer, its alright. It works perfect for me.
Ayo, that beat was dope.. That was all done on an ASR X (red or black?) ??
What is the latest OS that I should look for?
With the black one I don't think you can update the OS without a chip, or something.
So you are saying that I can sequence my stuff with a computer, and then put it back on the ASR X, and play it with out the computer?
Most of my beats use about 8 or 9 drum sounds, then a chopped up sample off viynl (so maybe 6 or 7 samples for that), and some times a bassline (which would be one sample, played on different keys). Would this be too much for the ASR X sequencer to handle?
I wanted to get an sp-1200, but that is too much loot, cause I want to take an minimalistic approach to beats (1 beat per diskette).. I assumed that when people are talking about the ASR X sequencer being shitty, they are using a ton of sounds..
(btw I am downloading your track now)
The sequencer is not that bad. If you have the latest O.S. it is pretty stable. Yeah you can do all of the above and send your shit back to the X. You can also edit your samples or make breaks on the computer, save them as wav and send the wav files and midi information back to the X. Listen and tell me if the timing sucks.
