Ensoniq SQ80 Sampled


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.

Wow -- like, who cares?! There's been a FREE VST of the SQ|80 available on-line for the last five years. (Use any search engine and it's easily found.) What I have wanted for years is the original TRANSWAVE sample library from the VFX -- recreated using the same modulatable wave-sweeping as on the original hardware synth. Good luck with this SQ|80 thingy. I'm not sure who would pay for this, when they can get the same thing for free.
