Well, I just picked up my SQ-1 (in original box) for a bargain $AU 125. I previously (many years ago) owned a Roland D-50 (my all-time fave synth) and when I first heard the SQ-1 it brought back those old Roland memories!

Sure, it's not quite the same, but it has that same crisp digital character, but also produces some passable analog sounds.

The keyboard action is fantastic - light and very responsive. Only let down by the lack of aftertouch.

I have the 'low-battery' message, but I'll fix that myself tomorrow - I always replace the soldered in batteries with a good quality battery-holder, which makes replacing the battery a breeze, in the future.

Can't wait to get into the SQ-1 (when I finally get my hands on a manual!)

The presets are midiocre, fortunately this synth is programmable as hell. heres what you do... pick a base sample sound. make it voice 2 tune it to +00, pan center enable voice 1 and pick the same sample..but fine tune it to +7 or +10 and pan +40 enable voice 3 and again, the same sample but fine tune it to -7 or -10 pan -40.... BAM! lush and fat!

Question: Can someone tell me how to send a sequence from DATA DISK to Ensoniq SQ1 ? I hit Send on the Data Disk, but I don't recall how to set up the Keybord SQ1 to capture the sequence that I'm trying to get on it. Please email the answer to LiveOn2@nc.rr.com Thanks millions. Tom

I've had my SQ1 for 15yrs. I love it. Paid $1,000. Lately the sustain pedal seems to be reversed. Is that possible?

To order a battery? Does the SQ1 have the pin or not? Which should I order?

Thanks,Mud.

I own an SQ-2, the 76 key version of the SQ-1+. It has some very usable presets, however, lacking filters, it isn't very useful for analog type sounds. It does very well for it's pads sounds and it's drum kits are usable I suppose, although I tend to use my R8 for drums. I use the SQ-2 also as a master controller for my E6400 sampler. Having the 76 keys makes it ultra useful for dividing the keyboard into zones especially when utilizing part of the keyboard for triggering the sampler and part for triggering it's internal sounds. Overall it's nice, but if lost or stolen I wouldn't be in any hurry to replace it.
