SQ8L VSTi - Ensoniq SQ80 emulation

The Siegfried Kullmann's SQ8L is a software model of Ensoniq's classic 1980s synth SQ80. The SQ80 features 3 digital wavetable (75 waves) 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. Default soundbank has about ~ 160 presets. The SQ80 also has a predecessor, the ESQ1, which can do most of the same stuff.
SQ8L was and still is a lot of work. Never the less and despite ongoing improvements it is still provided for free. If you like this software, you might want to consider a donation to the Programmer, Siegfried "Sigi" Kullmann.

I like the SQ8L very much. It has no effect-section, so hear what you get. After a little bit of time, working with it, it's easy to edit or create sounds.

The SQ8L is a very good instrument in addition to all the other emulations of moogs, fm-synths etc., not beautiful but easy to use GUI, very low CPU-requirements.

I dig the moog like sounds and ease of use. I have always been an ensoniq user so this vst continues a beautiful tradition.
