Any Info on the SQ1+

Unread post by Christopher » Tue Apr 06, 2004 4:51 pm

Hey all-

does anyone have any links to reviews (sound on sound would be GREAT) on the SQ1+-i've tried their archives and must not be hitting the right things. Or any other reviews would be greatly appreciated. I've had this synth/workstation for years and have only recently started digging back into it to see what it can do. Thanks! (great forum, btw)

Hi Christopher, welcome to the site. I had an SQ1+ for years. Great keyboard. Didn't get into programing much. I had the reviews here...will see if I can dig them out.

I actually bought two SQ-1 when they were released in 1991 (i believe it was) and only have tree words to say about them:

- Unexpected
- Event
- #144

:/:

They sounded quite nice and i loved the sequencer (also got the SQX70 sequencer expansion for one - but not the official one since i found two static ram chips that was the same but for an 8th of the Ensoniq price).

But that dreaded error message (i think i saw #130 a couple of times also) in combination with that they died on me 6-7 years later made me forget about them and never look back.

Hello,

I know these posts are very old, but maybe I will have luck:
anybody still have these files?
The email adress isn't working anymore.

I may have something here Ralf but if I do it will be on an old hard drive. Will try and find the files from back then and let you know.
