Ensoniq ESQ-1 w/ SQX-10 (B) Sequencer Expander & Extras
via this auction
Good price on this one.
"Item is in great condition for its age. Was opened up and thoroughly cleaned. All functions work perfectly, Filters are all in tune with each other, oscillators in tune. LED screen is bright and clear, and has no dead pixels. Has the latest OS 3.5 which allows access to the hidden waves (via sysx patches or the free sq8l vst which also acts as a patch librarian (highly recommended).
Comes with the Original manual which is in good condition as well.
There is also a cassette of patches from a Music store in Ferndale, Mi. This is untested.
Also includes the somewhat rare SQX-10 (B) Sequencer Expander cartridge pre-installed. This greatly increases the amount of sequences that can be stored.
It is the later plastic body version, which is preferable over the much less reliable metal case versions.
It was also modded to run on AA batteries, so if the internal battery ever gets low, you will only need to pop in 2 new AAs."
Batteries for patch storage of course. Anyone confirm the comment on metal case versions?
Note some of the patch names on the left reference other synths.
