Although the waveforms are digital in nature, the filters are all analog as on the Mirage.

In fact, for a digital synth the ESQ-1 has many good old analog-synth features such as a ring modulator, sequencer, and oscillator-sync. There are 40 preset sounds which are the usual not-so-great sounds. Luckily the VFD display screen is large enough to make editing the sounds somewhat pleasant. What really sets the ESQ-1 apart from other similar synths is the voice architecture. Choose from nesoniq, digital, enssoniq samples or any combo since there are three independent oscillators per voice!


Once you start editing on the ESQ-1 you will come up with interesting and unique results. Using dynamic voice allocation it can seemlesly switch from 8-voices of analog to 8-voices of digital or sampled voices!

This gives you a wide array of different sonic elements at your fingertips! Then there’s its built-in sequencer.

It can store up to 24, notes in 30 sequences and 10 songs via battery back-up. Anyone in search of an alternative synthesizer should consider the ESQ The ESQ-M pictured above is a rack-mount version released in which is identical to the ESQ-1 except that it excludes the on-board sequencer option.
