“I got this as a project and just never had time to fix it. I barely have time to play keys lately, so that got priority over tinkering with broken ones. As you can see from the pictures, when you turn it on and press buttons it flips through screens like it should, but as the ableton picture shows, there is no sound. Only a very very dim background buzz that is barely audible. When you first turn it on it says the battery needs to be replaced. I opened up the hood in case there is useful information there that might help someone figure out how to repair it. Again, no sound at all when the keys are pressed. This is for repair.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This is a beautiful and unique-sounding analog/wavetable synth, capable of producing incredible sounds. The first Skinny Puppy albums owe so much to this synthesizer, which made it one of the most sought-after sounds in it’s era. Everything on this beautiful board is in perfect working order, and I also initialized it back to the original state, with the original presets. Although not pictured, power cord is included.”

“I’ve owned this since Ensoniq ESQ-1 synth since 1987 – used it a few years during my rock-n-roll era and has been sitting in its original carrying case since 1999. The case is a black padded nylon case with carrying handles and strap (inside side pocket).
Tested and found to be in good working order.
This listing is for the ESQ-1, the blue owners manual, one power cord, amp cords and one foot pedal.
Thank you and Happy Bidding” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” Vintage 1987 Ensoniq ESQ-1 Digital Wave Synthesizer. Very cool professional quality item built to last. Powers on, LED display looks good. Will need new battery soon (easy fix). New power cord. Very few cosmetic scratches, etc. for a synth of this age. Keys have some transparent tape on them. Sound not tested, thus the low price. I believe this was made in USA. Sold as-is.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This Ensoniq is the metal bodied version. The added features include the hidden waves program. Which will enable you to generate a multitude of your own sounds beyond that of the original Ensoniq’s. All sliders and buttons work, fully functional, sounds great, and comes with power chord. Kept in a smoke free studio.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

esq1 “Vintage Ensoniq ESQ-1 Synthesizer – New Battery and 3.5 Software Upgrade.

ESQ Voice-80 Vol. 4 Cartridge.

Plastic Case.

Works Great with limited knowledge. I edited, changed parameters, moved in and out of every menu I came across. I usually find an online manual to print but in this case it’s over 275 pages long – so no. They should offer college credit for learning all that this synth can do.

I left playing with Midi a long time ago and I no longer have the gear to test that.

I have an old school hard shell case and with bubble wrap, foam and thrift store couch pillows for the ends it should travel just fine. Stand not included.

There’s a little case damage shown in the last picture. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

esq1 “Ensoniq ESQ-1 hybrid digital analog synthesizer metal flight case 3.5 OS 220 volt

220 volt, so needs converter (from eBay). Or plug it into dryer outlet. No problem.
All keys fully functional.
Excellent condition (2 cigarette burns on left side…not my work…does not smell at all of smoke)
Battery low warning…see pic
Original Ensoniq aluminum flight case. Pretty costly for a case like that.
Steinberg ESQRAM-1. See comment below.
Complete with original manuals.

The RAM lights up when inserted, but I cannot get the sounds out of it. It has a missing tab on one of the connections, but this was never an issue in the past.

All the banks of internal sounds work fine. I bought this in 1986 (with the burns), but haven’t used it for about 15 years now, just sat in its case.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

esq1 “Up for sale is my Ensoniq ESQ-1. I got it earlier this year but, unfortunately, it takes up too much space in my small bedroom studio.
I now have in my possession the ESQ-M which is the rack mount version of the ESQ-1. So I must now find a new home for this one. The synth is
in great cosmetic condition. It does have a few scuffs and scratches here and there as can be seen in the pictures. But it’s still in pretty good looking
shape. It’s in 100% functional condition. It does not have the factory presets in it. It has some other random preset bank loaded. It also comes with
the Voice Crystal 1 cartridge.

Included in the auction is the following:

ESQ-1 Synth
Power cord.
Voice Crystal 1 Cartridge
Original Manual

Synth is 100% functional. All sliders and buttons work as they should. No problems with battery.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Normal scuffs and wear that would be expected for a synth of this age. I have no idea how many times this synth may have changed owners or if it had been gigged, etc but can say that it has never left my smoke free studio and had been well cared for while in my possession.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
