SQ8L - Wavetable synth
SQ8L is a software model of Ensoniq's classic 1980s synth SQ80.

The SQ80 features 3 digital wavetable oscillators for each of its 8 voices which are fed through analog 4-pole lowpass filters (-24dB gain) with resonance. Sound parameters can be modulated by 4 envelopes, 3 LFOs and several MIDI sources. The SQ80 also has a predecessor, the ESQ1, which can do most of the same stuff.

If you're familiar with Ensoniq's ESQ-1 & SQ80 & you like their sound, you'll like this synth. I love my ESQ-1 & this is really a great VST.

Any MIDI CC is assignable, plus there are some fixed controllers... The following midi controllers are always recognized: 7 (07 hex) : Master volume, 10 (0A hex) : Panning (relative, 64=neutral), 11 (0B hex) : Expression (relative volume increase, 0=neutral)*, 64 (40 hex) : Hold/Sustain pedal (values>0 = hold notes)**, 74 (4A hex) : Brightness (relative filter frequency, 64=neutral)*. Just decide which parameter you'd like to modulate and rethink the mod.

SQ8L is a great plugin for a classic synth! I just figured out a way to play and record the SQ8L plugin in Mac OS X through Ableton Live 8. If you'd like instructions on how to do it, download them here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/l4ds8z7melb9sqk/SQ8L_in_OSX.zip . LONG LIVE ENSONIQ

Flawless emulation of the SQ80. Fairlight patch reminds me of the old CMI IIx. Hey Siegfried, your vst rocks!!

Un excellent vst pour faire des bass vraiment claquantes, des pads super shimmering, mais bien d'autres choses si on prends le temps de s'y attarder un peu ! très bon soft !

5 out of 5. Had an ESQ1 a long time ago and this sounds like a true Ensoniq synth of old. Great VST & can't believe it's free.

You can't just imagine how fat sounds the basses of this baby... Really great "Bottle" sound with a nice "windy" thing; really 80s, good emulation... tnxs (Sorry for bad english)
