ESQ-1 Reboot VPC-1B (81-120) for Kontakt and sfz

40 re-sampled patches for the Ensoniq ESQ-1.

Did I say $20? Well, as it's the end of the financial year here in Australia, why not snag it until 30th June for just $10? Ten Bucks. Pretty good bargain I reckon!

Note: The numbering shown below is as per the original cartridge and the Reason Refill. This pack has the patches ordered alphabetically and no numbering is used.

A full pack containing 40 Patches totalling 232MB - This is VPC-1 CART B, another 40 patches re-sampled from the original ESQ-1 Cartridges released in the 1980's.
