Siegfried Kullmann SQ8L v0.9b

Siegfried Kullmann has released version 0.9b of SQ8L, a software model (VST) of Ensoniq’s classic 1980s synth SQ80.

If you’re only going to check one new plug-in this week, I recommend you try this baby (you can use SQ80 presets).

Changes in v0.9b

  • New voice management and voice stealing mechanism.
  • New shapers for DCA1-4 resulting in smoother and more authentic modulation.
  • Enhanced MIDI capabilities.
  • Key pressure (polyphonic aftertouch) works now.
  • Pitch bend now available as modulation source.
  • GUI changes.
  • New file format for sound libraries.
  • Lots of bug fixed.

Check this readme (txt) file for more details.
