Ensoniq ESQ-1 Refill for Propellerhead Reason 7.1

16th October 2014:

What is the “Ensoniq ESQ-1 Reboot”?

It is an opportunity to download and try out for FREE the 40 factory sounds sculpted on the original Ensoniq ESQ-1 Digital Wave Synthesizer. Each of the original factory [Int v3.2 Orig] presets have been re-sampled and loaded up into an NN-XT sampler, and put into one of 4 Song Demos that are contained within this Free “Reason Refill”.
It is possible to save these re-samples from the 4 Song Demos locally on your hard drive, and save the NN-XT devices for future use.

(Note: there is also an sfz version and a Kontakt version of this Reboot – for non Reason Users)

Basically, it is the easiest way to use the factory sounds from the ESQ-1 in Reason without actually owning one.

Note: The sounds on the original ESQ-1 are only transferable by cassette tape or Ensoniq cartridge, which are now getting harder to obtain due to their age, so re-sampling them seemed to be the best way of being able to reuse the sounds easily in Reason. The next model, the SQ-80, had a floppy drive, but the ESQ-1 did not.

You can use MIDI-OX, (to move midi data back and forth from the ESQ-1 to a computer) but I only recently found out about that!
