    The Synthesizer With three Digital Wave Oscillators per voice, thirty-two sampled and synthetic Waveforms to choose from, and 15 routable Modulation sources, the ESQ-M is capable of producing a wide variety of rich, complex sounds. The five-octave, velocity sensitive keyboard can be split for different sounds on each half, layered for two sounds playing together, or even programmed for a Split‘Layer mode in which two totally different pairs of sounds play on each keyboard half.

    Forty Programs, or 'patches', are stored in the Internal Memory, with another eighty available on an external, plug-in Cartridge, giving you 120 sounds to select from instantly. In addition, the eighty-character fluorescent Display shows the names of ten programs at a time, making it easy to quickly scroll through all the sounds, to find the one you want. These programs can be played as is, or they can be modified to suit your taste and then renamed and stored, either in the Internal or the Cartridge Memory.
