Akai ASQ10

Tuesday Feb 20, 2018

“Vintage Akai ASQ- 10 Sequencer in fantastic condition (for its age) and fully working.

The Akai ASQ-10 gives you that legendary Roger Linn MPC 60 swing and quick and ingenious combined pattern/linear sequencer workflow (without the pads and sampling ability or cost of the MPC 60). As it has 4 midi outs and 2 midi ins it can sit as the centre piece in your studio sequencing your hardware equipment (and help get you away from a computer screen should you choose) or equally it can be integrated into any midi set up modern DAW system.

Has the last official Roger Linn upgrade 3.10 installed.

Power wise it is the 240 volts European version I will include an adapter for UK power sockets. ” Link

“This Akai ASQ-10 MIDI sequencer was stored with other audio equipment and is in working condition. It includes hard drive. It is a little dusty from storage but overall in good shape. Cosmetically has normal signs of ware” Link

“Up for auction is an Akai ASQ 10 MIDI sequencer in very good working condition. I recently replaced the disk drive so it should serve well for years to come. The backlight still works very well, which is rare on these units being posted on eBay. Cosmetically, i would give it a high 7 out of 10. There are a few small scratches here and there, but all of the font on the command buttons are still in tact; there is a slight amount of wear on the bottom front of the unit from handling throughout the years (this cannot be seen from the top, normal view of the unit). Please check photos for more detail.” Link

” This is the brain of the legendary Akai MPC60, the result of the Roger Linn collaboration with Akai. The MPC has touch pads and audio outputs. The ASQ-10 is the sequencer section only. No audio. No cool drum samples. Just MIDI. Here’s what Wikipedia says about it: In 1988, Akai also released the sequencer section of the MPC60 as a standalone hardware product in its own right, the ASQ10. As with the MPC60, this was renowned for its solid MIDI timing compared to computer software based systems.” Link

No audio. No cool drum samples. Just MIDI. Here’s what Wikipedia says about it: In 1988, Akai also released the sequencer section of the MPC60 as a standalone hardware product in its own right, the ASQ10. As with the MPC60, this was renowned for its solid MIDI timing compared to computer software based systems.

I read about it in Contemporary Keyboard (not just Keyboard) and bought it brand new by special-ordering it from my local music dealer here in Spokane WA. I was moving up from the built-in sequencer of my Ensoniq ESQ-1. I was producing music for video production companies and needed dead accurate MIDI clock timing and the ability to read SMPTE time code, a feat that could otherwise be achieved only with the most powerful and expensive Macs. But it also had 2 MIDI In Ports and 4 MIDI Out Ports! I was running about 7 or 8 MIDI hardware devices and loved the I/O. I used it intensely from 1988 until the Mac LC came out in late 91/early 92. I still used the ASQ-10 for live presentations including an awards show with the Pacific Coast Gas Association Conference in Houston hosted by the now-infamous Enron! You can manually change sequences while everything’s running without any lag or timing dropout. That’s really cool and powerful.

The only drawback now is that it uses a 3.5″ floppy drive. The drive in this unit works flawlessly However, I’ve seen USB replacements on eBay that I’d buy in a moment if I was still using this baby. I’ve included 5 or 6 blank disks that are quickly (well, it takes about a minute!) and easily formatted on the ASQ-10. The backlit LCD display is getting dim but it’s still quite readable. Even when it was new, I set up a small desk lamp to reflect off the LCD to make it easier to read. LCD replacements in all kinds of duo-chrome color combinations are advertised all over eBay too.” Link

asq10 “Here we have a rare Akai ASQ-10 Sequencer. Fitted with brand new tact switches and the latest OS, Vimana 3.15, from Mansell Labs. Screen is also in great shape, very readable and bright in low light. Everything works 100%. As you may now, these are hard to come by. They are the full sequencer portion of the classic Akai MPC60. Literally one of the best hardware sequencers ever made in my opinions. Selling at a great price. ” Link

I’m listing all the stuff I either won’t ever get around to or simply don’t want/need anymore.

This ASQ-10 boots up and works over midi control but the top panel is unresponsive.
Never figured out what the issue was.

asq10“AKAI ASQ-10 SEQUENCER

Cosmetically this machine is in excellent condition. The back panel has a few rust paint off spots (please check photos) which is pretty normal for this machine. The front and sides are quite beautiful. Button reaction is fine, floppy drive working perfectly, brand new high quality backlight. Inside is very clean indeed. The Play/start button colour is slightly off to the colour of the other buttons.

OS version 2.13

I’ve taken some photos without a flash so you can see the backlight in all it’s glory. The flash photos give an accurate idea of the way the machine looks.

Fully checked and working perfectly. Akai two pin Power cable included.” Link
