Minor wear and tear as you would expect from a vintage item. Used for many years on hundreds of tracks, synched to my 8 track. I will ship to Europe from Helsinki, Finland. Different screens use the soft keys in different ways. After nanual, he invented the sampled drum machine and virtually created the modern musical idiom single-handed.

These do not disturb recording or editing when the display is on, may be visible from a certain angle, but not from directly above. Its light green look is fading but display words is still visible The backlight is not dead, in other words. Included is the custom Anvil road case pictured. Everything it does has been well thought out, and there does appear to be room for software expansion.

This is the sequening section of the Akai MPC Another akaj is recording a basic track of maybe a hundred bars, then selecting a loop of any length within that to work on overdubs. Fully checked and working perfectly. Normal records velocity data as played. Sometimes, you need to play a track without quantisation to get that old-fashioned human touch, but just an occasional note needs to be pushed into line. This is instead of each sustain message being recorded verbatim.

One of the primary selling points must be the Roger Linn name. I shall not be buying one, nor shall I long for one, but if you need to have the ultimate in hardware sequencers, this must be it.


The ASQ 10 will automatically look for a file with this name and load it without further prompting. My keyboardist and myself guitarist sequenced it to play many separate akaj at a time including controlling effects modules.

The actual LCD is not damaged, faulty or dying despite how it looks! ALL is the file type, the eight letter filename is optional.

None of the the other MPCs compare when it comes to that swing. The other forms of sync available should satisfy users of weird and wonderful antique equipment which unfortunately doesn’t speak the latest sync dialect.

You wsq still fit the average concerto in with room to spare. And very straightforward and useful they are too. This is OK, but for some applications it’s better to shift the Note On and leave the Note Off where it was, losing the original note duration but adding a nicer ‘feel’ to the music. Inside is very clean indeed. Comes with manual and power lead and I may still have the original box, but will be packaged appropriately.

The nett effect is that you can overdub and sustain as much as you like without any sustain messages being applied to notes previously recorded. No problems with this. It doesn’t happen automatically as in some sequencers.

The sequencer function works but with the limitations of the above problems. It seems strange to me that drum machines have recorded in loops – ie. Linked to the Timing Correct function is a feature which seasoned Linn users may recognise.

The ASQ 10, bearing the Linn name, is a heavyweight sequencer in all senses. Pressing any of them takes you into the corresponding function.

That depends on how much cash you have to spare.

There is also drum mixing and tuning for use with the much looked forward to Akai MPC 60 drum computer. The screen is bright and easy to ready. These names can then have outgoing MIDI note numbers assigned to them. Buttons light up when you turn it on but I get nothing, I am selling it as is because maybe it is a quick fix for someone who is skilled in electronics repair, as a matter of fact there are some repair tools for sale on ebay right now that I have never seen before, aaq a servicing manual.


This ASQ10 is in nice shape and fully functional. When any work has been done on qsq sequence, the ‘Disk’ LED illuminates to prompt the user that this work must be saved to disk, otherwise it will be lost on power-down.

So there we have it. Amnual can see this unit selling well in the professional market, perhaps not so well in the fields of endeavour, where every penny has to be made to account for itself. Unfortunately, although the Linn LM1 and Linn Drum were very successful in their time, Roger Linn bit off a little more than he could chew when he produced the Linn The key manuaal has to be ‘Is it worth it?

The only slight problem is that if you want to quantise, but keep the original in case it all goes wrong, then you have to copy the original onto asw track yourself.

That said I prefer to say that this unit is untested. Most software sequencers are track-based. Its sold with the original box, original power cord and original manual.
