Binary Music has announced the release of the Crosswave sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt, Ableton Live and Apple EXS24.
The library features the Ensoniq SQ80, which was originally manufactured in 1988 as the successor to the ESQ1. The hardware instrument used three 8-bit wavetable oscillators per voice and digital amplifiers but, crucially, it had Curtis 4 pole 24dB/octave filters, making it a distinctive hybrid instrument.
Binary Music's sampled instrument has an easy-to-use custom interface and contains 133 patches made from 1,642 individual samples recorded at 44.1 kHz, 24 bit resolution.
Pricing and Availability:
Available as an instant download, price: £15.00 (Kontakt) £12 (Live & EXS24) + VAT in E.U.
