Free Software Friday - SampleScience SQ8ROM

Free Software Friday is our regular Friday feature here at the dBs Music blog. We dig the depths of the music production and media webosphere and discover what downloadable plugin freebies are worth double clicking each week.

If you're creating synthwave, synth-pop or vaporwave then today's Free Software Friday may be be more tempting than usual, with the release of Sample Science's SQ8ROM. 

A free plug-in version of the SQ8L, which in turn took it's inspiration from Ensoniq's SQ-80 synth, the SQ8ROM is pre-loaded with both sounds and nostalgia that recall the 1980s. If those 50 sounds aren't enough for your needs you can expand the palette with an additional 168 sounds in a separate free download. 

Additionally, these 168 sounds can be tweaked using amplitude ADSR, in-built reverb and multi-LFO. 

SQ8ROM is available to download for free on Windows and Mac using the link below.
