I would pay money for that - because the 32-bit version crashes in Cubase 8.5 when using more as one instance :- (.

That is so unfortunate....

The read-me says...

  • Program change messages ignored.
  • When used with a sequencer, the only sound the host can save within the song file is the one in the edit buffer.

Does anyone know if those statements are actually true? If they are, its usefulness is extremely limited. If not, it'd be great. I still have an ESQ-M, not used a lot any more, but I really liked it back in the day.

I don't know... I never use program changes, and have never used more than one instance per song.

It's free and it sounds great, that's a lot of usefulness to me! But yeah it's too bad that it never got any further developement.

Hi, everyone.

I'm new here, and I have to say, I should have registered earlier. Great stuff here.

I love the SQ80 and the ESQ-1. And I bought a SQ80 because I totally fell in love with the sounds I heard in the german "KEYS" magazine, issue 08/2000, when they wrote about the machine in a vintage corner. I never managed to find those sounds, or reprogram them.

Does anyone of you by coincidence know, which sounds were used for this article? I would die for that information. So please, if anyone of you knows what I'm talking about, let me know, please. I'd be tremendously grateful.

Once again hello, and thanks to all of you! :)

I know it's pretty much abandonware.. but any chances to install it using FL Studio 11/12?

There are no installation files - just unpack the zip file in your VST folder. And yes it works with all versions of FL Studio.

Lovely free VSTi! Very unique sounds from the 80s. It is really a pity it's abandonware now but still is a must have... :D.

I just wonder where Siegfried went? He's done such a marvelous job with this. ESQ-1 was once my most beloved synth and I'm over the moon to have found this vst, which really feels fantastic and brings back pure joy to me. I'd just want to say "THANKS" to him and hope he's making an excellent and happy living with what ever he chose to do.

Now I shall make some nostalgic tracks full of original happiness, haha, and I hope he gets to read of my sincere gratitude and that of everyone else.

You Rock, Siggy.

I would also like a 64-bit version of VSTi.

My ESQ-1 finally "almost" died on me, but had exported the patches and can use them all in SQ8L.

However, now it seems many of the DAW's are abandoning 32-bit .vsti's... Didn't really want to get into the complication of external bridging. Yep, would like the 64-bit version of this useful synth vst.

Reaper has built in bridging.

Hello, .

I think Siegfried Kullmann is dead. :(.

https://trauer.rp-online.de/traueranzeige/siegfried-kullmann-9999

There are plenty of indications that this is the developer of the SQ8L, because of the man there is nothing to read for several years. Maybe he died of a serious illness.

Just got the shock of my life, omggg. Siegfried is a personal friend of mine even though I haven't heard from him in a while - I cannot confirm what MartyK wrote, I checked his FB account just now and found out that Siegfried is very alive and well.

Most likely development on the project stopped for other reasons ;)
