Ensoniq ESQ-1 synthesizer output
At the end of 2004, I downloaded new sound definitions for the ESQ-1 (and loaded them by MIDI message). I was impressed by the Transoniq Hacker sounds, especially one which had the mod wheel (user input wheel) set to modulate the frequency of a synched oscillator, an effect I had not before encountered on the ESQ-1. Inspired by that I proceeded to get into synthesizing new sounds on the instrument, demonstrated in the March and November output above.
