Sound Quality
I used an atari for years , i started on a hardware sequencer and i spent a year trying to get good midi results out of everything from logic to cubase sx...and they suck time wise....even with there dedicated midex and amt8 boxes which i used and tried.The timing just sounds out in comparison...its subtle but its that subtle difference that makes the asq10 sound so good , its simply to quantize , change time signatures and tempo changes.Its simply to set unusual grooves and its over all a relief to be able to sequence well.I use cubase sx for audio and simply sequence off the asq10 and record all parts to individual audio channels . Its goove and swing and the feel of stuff you can do with it seems unique to me?i havent managed to get stuff froma pc like this and i still wonder why some days !within 2 hours of booting this sequencer up for the 1st time i was doing complex seqeuntial stuff and grooves that i had spent years trying to get froma pc !

General Comments
Shit hot sequencer , grooves and swings with ease , has a great interface and seems to be capable of very natural aswell as conplex stuff and seems to make something very easy like beat creation and complex trill like patterns and stuff.Its worth it for note repeat function alone ! its just so different from pc or atari sequencing , the timing doesnt drift one nansecond as it does on pcs with large midi data amounts and on atari which i also found with large amounts. Every studio should have one mpc style sequencer .....nothing can compare.
