Plughugger has announced the release of a new Omnisphere sound library based on the early 2000’s Waldorf MicroQ hardware synthesizer. MQXL for Omnisphere contains 225 sounds.

The MicroQ was a virtual analog synthesizer, with traditional subtractive synthesis mixed with wavetables, ring modulation and a very digital sounding effect section.

The design goal with MQXL was to bring back the sound of the MicroQ but re-imagined as if it would have been made today, with real analog filters and modern effects. While embracing the character of the MicroQ, Plughugger also kept true to the sonic flaws in the synthesizer.

As a fun bonus, Plughugger also recorded a handful of basic waveforms processed with the Elektron Analog Heat for a more modern edge.

MQXL features

  • 30 Arpeggios & Sequences.
  • 26 Drum & Percussion.
  • 27 Effects.
  • 25 Pads and Strings.
  • 40 Bass sounds.
  • 37 Synth sounds.
  • 40 Multis.

The library is on sale for the intro price of 9.90 EUR until June 12th, 2022 (regular 29.90 EUR). Use coupon code MINIQ at the checkout to get the discount.
