50% off USQ-1 Digital-Analog Wave Synth by UVI & PLAYTHROUGH

50% off USQ-1 Digital-Analog Wave Synth 
by UVI

“USQ-1 Digital-Analog Wave Synth” is a recreation of the much loved classic Ensoniq ESQ-1 synthesizer workstation, taken to the next level!

USQ-1 comes with a bank of 400 presets to get you started but you can quickly and easily alter the provided sounds to suit your needs. This is a synth suitable for everything from Basses to Leads to Pads to Arps to crazy Effects and more. All with a tasty 80’s vibe!  

A Brief History Of The Ensoniq ESQ-1

Released in 1986, the Ensoniq ESQ-1 was one of the first affordably priced workstation-class keyboards on the market, combining an 8-voice, multi-timbral digital/analog hybrid synthesizer and a featured 8-track sequencer.

The ESQ-1’s voice architecture allows customization of up to 3 digital oscillators, assignable to any one of 32 waveshapes, followed by a Curtis 4-pole 24dB/oct resonant low-pass analog filter and 15 routable modulation sources.

The sound quality of the ESQ-1 is all-at-once digital, warm and unmistakably ’80s – a true gem of the time whose sounds still ring with a brilliant depth and character! 

All Of That 80’s Retro Flavor In A Modern Plugin Package

USQ-1 offers 268 selectable layers made from over 22,000 samples. To showcase the sonic potential UVI included 400 all-new patches including everything from rich bells, strings and leads to thick basses, textured pads and modulating atmospheres.

The versatile design of the ESQ-1 allowed UVI to create both classic sounds that you’d expect from a vintage-era synth and also modern patches utilizing more contemporary sound design techniques. All-in-all these sounds ring with a special “vintage digital” vibe that synths of this era, and the ESQ-1 especially, do so well.

The sounds in USQ-1 are detailed and powerful. Every patch began with sound design on the original hardware and was recorded at UVI’s main studio through the highest-quality processors and converters available.

You’re not just hearing the output jacks of the synth, the entire signal chain was thoughtfully considered to create a rich and professional “finished record” sound that’s both mix-ready and inspiring to play.

The included presets can easily be edited or you can build your own patches from scratch. Authentic sounds from the ESQ-1 are presented in a dual-layer architecture allowing for the design of two custom oscillators each with independent wave selection of 268 layers, ADSR amp, multi-mode filter with envelope, pitch, portamento, stereo, LFO, multi-step and modwheel modulation assignments and an arpeggiator.

At the end of the chain is a capable effect bus loaded with UVI’s own processors, including a 3-band EQ, drive, chorus (Thorus), phaser, delay and reverb (Sparkverb) all with excellent sound-quality and a feather-light CPU footprint.

USQ-1 delivers that vintage digital magic that we fell in love with over 30 years ago: a bold and inspiring collection of sounds combining modern sound design technique with an unmistakable ’80s flavor. 

Five Main Sections
MAIN PAGE & GLOBALS – On the main page, you can choose your two waves that form the basis of your patch as well as set their volume and pan positions. Volume and filter ADSR envelopes can be set for each wave here too. 

EDIT PAGE – This section lets you control the stereo effect, which is either OFF, ALT or UNISON modes and has variable spread, detune and colour. You will also find the modwheel set up here as well as pitch and poly/mono settings. 

MOD PAGE – This section consists of a variable step modulator and an LFO modulator which can be linked to the volume, filter depth and pitch of each oscillator in various combinations and with various varieties of variables.

FX PAGE – Unsurprisingly, this is the bit where you play with the effects. You get quality EQ, Drive, Thorus, Phasor, Delay and Sparkverb modules available with the basic controls you’d expect. Because who wants to listen to a dry synth? No one, that’s who.

ARP PAGE – Split right down the middle to accommodate the OSC-1 arp on the left and the OSC-2 on the right you will find a volume step sequencer for each along with direction controls.
