Plughugger has announced the release of a new soundset for the SQ80 V virtual instrument from Arturia

A Frozen Moment in Time delivers a lofi ambient collection of 148 sounds, inspired by the noise and unpredictable nature of the Ensoniq SQ-80.

The design goal of the soundset was to work with the limitations of the synth and fully enhance its lofi quality. A large focus is set on the dirty sines and triangles of the SQ80, but also modulating of the transwaves as well as working with the short looped waveforms.

The main focus of the collection lies with pads, soundscapes and soft melodic leads, oddly tuned sine waves, arpeggios & sequences, as well as large impact hits and strange mechanical sounds.

A Frozen Moment in Time features

  • 7 Bass sounds.
  • 26 Arpeggios and Sequences.
  • 3 Drum and Percussion sounds.
  • 14 Effects.
  • 27 Synth Sounds.
  • 42 Pads and Strings.
  • 29 Textures and Soundscapes.

All sounds are properly tagged in the preset browser. The sound pack is on sale for the introductory price of 9.90 EUR until October 24th, 2021 (regular 17.90 EUR). Use coupon code 8BITAMBIENT at the checkout to get the discount.
