The ORGANIC DIGITAL WAVEMAKER SQ80 V is Ensoniq’s classic ’80s Cross-Wave synth resurrected, combining hybrid lo-fi character, complex industrial textures and thousands of unique waveform combinations in a fast-paced soft synth enhanced for today’s production.
Digital synthesis solved. Digital synthesizers are often known for their razor-sharp, crystal-clear and precise sound – the SQ80 V has other ideas. Explore a detailed software resurrection of a digital anti-hero who wants to break the rules.
Capture the resilience, character and charming imperfection loved by John Carpenter, Adamski, Mr. Bungle and many more with a tool that is both sophisticated and accessible, focused and intricate, edgy and dreamlike – and unlike anything you’ve heard before.
The perfectly modeled 8-bit 5503 DOC chip Digital Edge SQ80 V delivers digital sounds that have a unique organicity, from silky smooth to razor-sharp, all ready to set up and play in seconds.
Analog Character The digital oscillators face an emulated analog filter and output circuitry for growling sine waves, hissing harmonics and warm lo-fi tones that are utterly imperfect.
Waveform Evolution Explore thousands of possible waveform combinations, instrumental transients, hidden waveforms, and VFX transwaves for sound design potential that surpasses the original hardware.
Digital Synthesizers Made Simple Digital synthesizers have long been known for being difficult to program in both hardware and software. The SQ80 V bucks the trend with an immersive digital architecture that can be set up instantly and seamlessly.
Riding the Wave Built by the same engineers behind the Commodore 64, considered the best-selling computer of all time, the Ensoniq SQ80 has held its own against tough competition.
