“For sale is this working asq-10 sequencer. not many cosmetic defects. The screen backlight is still good, and the sequencer and all controls work fine. This is an overseas model so it has a converter for use in the U.S. sold as-is.”

“This is one for the collectors as it has no modifications whatsoever (apart from the software upgrade). It even still has the 2 pin power connector and original power lead.
Original manual is there and also the manual for the software upgrade which was completed at Akai I’m told.
I have tested the unit and all buttons/rotary control are working very well. The screen is not very bright but I am not sure what these were like “out of the box”. New backlights are obviously available for around £25.
The only thing I have not tested is the floppy drive as I do not have a floppy disk.”
“One of the best if not the best hardware sequencer ever imo, This is basically an MPC60 without the sampler.
Unit is in very good cosmetic condition for its age..
All the buttons work great and so does the floppy drive. The screen is very readable as shown on the photos.
The sequencer has a fault however that i was unable to resolve. While everything seems to work without issues, and you can access all the menues etc, the transport doesn’t start for some reason..if you try to record a new sequencer for example the transport buttons light up as expected but the sequencer doesn’t start running.
I haven’t used it for a couple of years but it was working last time i’ve used it, so not too sure what happened. This might be a bargain for the right person with the right knowledge.
It is currently running OS 2.12. I bought the latest Virmana chips some time ago but never got around to install them.. If i can find them (no luck so far) I will include them with the unit.
Finally, the power socket was modified to use a regular 3 pin IEC connector rather than the original 2 pin one.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
“Akai ASQ10 Roger Linn Sequencer.
One of the best hardware sequencers ever built and even more so considering it was released in 1988. In pretty good condition despite it being over 30 years old.
Built like a tank and it is one of Roger Linn’s signature machines, the others being the MPC60, MPC60II and the MPC3000.
This is an MPC60 without the pads or sampling engine. It has that ‘groove’ that is difficult to recreate using modern DAW’s or hardware sequencers.
Way ahead of the competition and for its time.
2 merged MIDI ins, 4 MIDI outs, MTC, MIDI Clock, SMPTE.
It can be used as a solid MIDI clock source when slaved by SMPTE to your DAW. This is how I was using it and it is basically how the ERM Multiclock works.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Without buttons or problems there good. Body, instructions (as a bonus for rags) power cable” Click here to visit listing on eBay
Rock solid timing, unmistakable MPC swing – very hard to come by.
Condition is Used with some cosmetic signs of wear which is understandable given the age of the unit.
LCD is readable but might benefit from changing the backlight.
Floppy drive returns Error code: ff80 – I am assured that this could either need a replacement SCSI fuse or floppy drive to rectify this.
Everything else works well – but I am pricing this item low to account for these two issues & am therefore selling it as seen.
