You can purposely malfunction the effects processor on the ASR-X to achieve some amazing sounds. Just hold down a key and make sure to assign the track FX bus to insert. While the key is down, go to select effect and scroll through different effects. As the processor attempts to switch to the new effect it will spit out some strange stuff in between. By switching effects at different times or rates, or using different sounds to start with, you can achieve several variations on this phenomena. The main drawback of this features is that you can't directly sample this into the ASR-X because you cannot record and change the effects setting simultaneously. You must record using another device from the main out and then sample back into the ASR-X.
