PATRICK WONG’S BEATS SERIES GOES ON WITH THE ‘ASR-X’ SAMPLING DRUM MACHINE

Duo-ASRX-Patrick-Wong-1100pxExpanding on his Beats Series of resin minifigures, Canadian artist Patrick Wong reveals his latest addition titled “ASR-X”. The series is primarily aimed for music production enthusiasts to mark the evolution of sampling technology as resin collectible art. This release is inspired by the actual sampling drum machine of the same name released in 1997 (1998 for the Pro red model).

The ASR-X originally entered the marketplace poised as a “MPC-Killer” and competed directly with Akai’s flagship MPC 3000. Although failing to capture the title in the end, the ASR-X was a notable groove production tool with easy sequencing, resampling, digital effects, and a built-in set of low/high pass filters.

Part 5 comes sealed in shrink film with a numbered card, packaged as others in the series with a kraft gift box, and comes with one toy record accessory of the Headhunters “Survival of the Fittest” LP featuring the classic break in “God Made Me Funky”.

Available now through September 12, 2015 for preorder with no copies available after this date. Priced at only $35 each and available in either Black or Red variants. They can be bought through his webstore HERE.
