Arturia SQ80 V v1.1.2ORGANIC DIGITAL WAVEMAKER SQ80 V is Ensoniq’s classic ‘80s Cross-Wave synth reborn, weaving hybrid lo-fi character, complex industrial textures, and thousands of unique waveform combinations into a quick-fire softsynth enhanced for modern production. Digital synthesis unraveled. Digital synthesizers are often known for sounds that are razor-sharp, crystal-clear, and precise – SQ80 V has other ideas. Explore a detailed software resurrection of a digital anti-hero that’s out to break the rules. Capture the grit, character, and charming imperfection favored by John Carpenter, Adamski, Mr Bungle, and countless others with an instrument that’s simultaneously complex and accessible, focused and intricate, edgy and dream-like – and unlike anything you’ve heard before.
The digital edge SQ80 V’s perfectly-modeled 8-bit 5503 DOC chip delivers digital sounds that are uniquely full of organic character, ranging from silky smooth to razor sharp – all ready to customize & play in seconds.
Analog character Digital oscillators collide with an emulated analog filter and output circuit for sinewaves that growl, harmonics that sizzle, and warm lo-fi timbres that are perfectly imperfect.
Waveforms evolved Explore thousands of possible combinations of waves, instrument-style transients, hidden waveforms, and VFX transwaves for sound design potential that surpasses the original hardware.
Digital made easy Digital synths have long been notoriously tricky to program, both hardware and software. SQ80 V bucks the trend with an immersive digital architecture that can be tweaked instantly, hassle-free.
Riding a wave Created by the same engineers responsible for the Commodore 64 – considered the best-selling computer of all time – Ensoniq’s SQ80 was up against stiff competition.
