No, what we have been discussing is the fact that some people who still own the hardware units say that the SQ8L is a more faithful emulation.fmr wrote: ↑Thu Sep 23, 2021 12:24 amAs I said, I don't use the SQ8L, but the SQ80 V is an emulation of the Ensoniq SQ-80, not the SQ8L.
Therefore, Arturia should make all efforts to make SQ80 V sound like the Ensoniq SQ-80. That, I agree. But that's it.
If people want to use the SQ8L they can use the SQ8L, but the SQ80 V doesn't have to be compatible with it, nor behave the same way - that's ridiculous.
What we have been discussing is alleged differences between the SQ80 V and the hardware it is supposed to emulate, not with SQ8L. As I don't own an Ensoniq SQ-80 I can't speak for myself, so I have to trust those that have one, for the moment.
So if we take their word as fact then the SQ80V should try to "emulate" whatever it is in the 8L that people fine more accurate.
No one is saying the 80V should emulate the horrid 8L workflow or interface just the accuracy of emulating the imported sounds.
The 80V is already an overall better synth but if indeed the 8L is a more accurate emulation then Arturia should find out why and strive for that same accuracy. That's all.
EDIT: I see olepro and sovietpop have already explained it to you.
