Re: drum machine for D&B
What about Ensonqi ASR-X or ASRX-PRO? It costs bit more but it sounds
excellent. I know Veron Reid used it live with David Torn.
It can be both a sampler and a synth. It has effect and all those real
time tweaking knobs (not many, but fairly enough). I'm think to get it
as a master MIDI clock to control my Echoplex and plays some D&B stuff
on the background.
You may check out how it sounds here:
I've also tried Boss DR-202, I have to say that the preset (MIDI
files) are all very good and to my taste. It covers hip-hop, trip-hop,
funks, techno, ... every kind of trendy dance stuffs.
However, it sounds bad (just the good midi preset files make you think
it's good). Can't say much if you refer them as "lo-fi".
Having said that, it's a fun toy with knobs and sounds bad. Agreed
with the other gentlemen that it's just a toy but not a tool.
I'm seriously thinking the ASR-X/PRO ... any other using it?
