Why, yes, yes it can.

I completely understand.

I used mine from 1994-maybe 2006. I made harder beats when I used just it, a Sony walkman and a mini disc recorder/player.

It can accomplish SOOO much **** but nothing is automagical, everything is manual. If someone doesn't have the patience then oh well. I was ALWAYS able to get whatever I needed from it. The sequencer never bothered me. It's not the tightest but it WORKED perfectly for me, chopping by ear and no numbers worked extremely well for me to, resample sinewaves down to 6khz saved me a LOT of space. Copy to params saved my life so many times, I can go on.

What other gear can actually copy params and use a virtual copy without doubling the physical space? Sampling while playing was a big one for me to. The LIVE inputs I used to use as a mixer also. Connect my drum machines main outputs to it genius back then.

The early OS of the MPC60 did this as well.

I remember when i first got my 60ii it had an early OS. It had this same copy sample feature, which i thought was amazing after being used to the MPC2000. Next I wanted to install SCSI. Unfortunately to do this i had to update the OS chips and it no longer had that feature after the update.

Just a heads up salt, I am not sure how the asr rack reacts with polyphonic after touch. I forgot about it. It may recognize it only from controllers that can send poly after touch, maybe even not at all. Poly after touch is tricky one as it’s not always standard. I think the mpc can do it (similar to velocity) but it may require differnt work around vs the keyboard doing it itself. It’s really not a big deal, (with other workarounds), but I just posted a few vids dealing with it so I just wanted to be a little more clear.

I am having a problem with the Asr 10, Mpc 5000 and Jv-1080 combo. I'm kinda new to the ASR, just got it like a month ago. A few days back I got the oldschool Jv-1080 module, that I'd like to add to my setup.

I would like to sequence ASR and Jv 1080 to the MPC (like everybody else), and play Jv's sounds on the ASR you know? Right now I am able to play Jv with Mpc's pads but keys on the ASR dont do anything :shock: When I press a key on the ASR I can see the little dot on MPC's main screen that tells MPC is receiving signal, but for some reason I cant play Jv this way... :?

My cables go like this:
MPC Midi out A ---> ASR Midi in

ASR Midi out ----> MPC Midi in 1

MPC Midi out B ---> JV Midi in

This is real basic stuff I know, I have spent damn much time atm to find the answer! :lol: Reading threads from the web, checking out manuals etc... How have you guys hooked up this kind of setup?

Ok, so I managed to figure it out (almost immediately after posting my previous message :Sigh: ). Under the mpc's MIDI/SYNC-menu I had to switch SOFT THRU: AS TRACK, and I was able to play Jv with the ASR :worthy:
I guess I was just too focused on the asr's settings and all the time I thought that there was something messed up...

Just curious if any of you asr or eps users mess with the attack envelope?

I mess with the sustain figures to emulate the one shot like on the mpc but never messed much with attack.

I want to make sure the attack on drums are as short as possible but not exactly sure what numbers or envelope would need to be adjusted if at all.

Anyone help?

I used low values on both HARD VEL and SOFT VEL on T1 to get fast attack so however I hit the keys soft or hard I always got a fast attack.

Thanks Lamp going to check the manual out again.

Just copped an eps 16 plus and noticed i am not having the same minor note placement issues as i was on asr. Not a huge thing and perhaps an OS issue, but some mystery notes seemed to either hit late or early even after quantizing on the ASR.

Also really enjoy the anti aliasing sampling feature on the EPS 16 plus.

One odd thing though is you need to keep the OS disk in the eps to use many features and commands while on the asr once the OS loads you are good to go.
