esq-1 Reboot sfz edition (Ensoniq ESQ-1 v3.2)
Updates: I added a couple of additional files:
1) You can upload the 40 original factory patches to a "real" ESQ-1 or SQ-80 using a program like Midi-OX using this sysex file: Int-BanksRB.syx
2) You can use SQ-8L - a 32 bit virtual ESQ-1 VST Instrument - which can play the same sounds using this 8XL library file: Int-BanksRB.8XL
The "esq-1 Reboot" is the sfz version of the re-sampled patch set for the classic Ensoniq ESQ-1 synthesizer, based on the 40 original Factory Patches.
To be clear, this patch set is re-sampled directly from the Internal Banks Version 3.2 that shipped with the Synth in 1987.
Contents: These are the 40 voices that are included: +KOTO2, 2 COOL, 3TRUMS, 4XFADE, ANABRS, BL PNO, BOTTLS, BRASTR, CLAV 1, DIGPNO, ECHO1, HARP2, HEVBRS, HI-RES, ICYORG, ISLAND, K+SIMS, KALMBA, KICK 1, KLUNKS, MINI M, MIXED, MOODS, MRIMBA, NOISTR, ORGAN1, PIANO1, PIANO2, PLKBRS, PLKMTL, SAX 1, SHAKER, SINPAD, SLDRUM, SLOSTR, SNAPS1, SYNBAZ, TRIBEL, VELBAS, WAVBEL
The esq-1 Reboot works with any sfz compatible sampler, including the free Alchemy Player, Dimension LE, Dimension Pro, Rapture, & sfz.
Contents: One zipped file containing 16 bit 44,100 Raw RCM wave (.wav) Samples for 40 re-sampled ESQ-1 patches, sfz script files & End User Licence Agreement (EULA)= 283MB
The esq-1 Reboot is basically the easiest way to use the factory sounds from the Ensoniq ESQ-1 without actually owning one.
