Here at Illuminated Sounds we love things with 16 pads and we love to take things apart. Now personally I’m a fan of Akai MPC’s, but when one my friends got a Maschine I knew it was only a matter of time before I could get him to open it up.
the big pads remind me of the fat pads for the mpc2000xl
Here are some pictures of me opening and replacing the save button in an Ensoniq ASR-X. This is one of my favorite samplers to work on do to its design. The ASR-X also came loaded with some pretty classic sounds, which I’ll post once the samples are all edited. Here is the demo song that comes loaded on the ASR-X.
