  • Arturia presents SQ80-V

80 Squares


80 Squares brings us back a good twenty years as it is heavily influenced by some key artists in the techno and house scene that we listened to a lot in early 2000. The SQ80 V delivers the ingredients for the track perfectly, as this synth was used a lot in the scene.

87 Summer Sunset

Maxime Audfray

A retro synthwave track with a lot of 80's action, showcasing the ability of the SQ80 V to trigger strong nostalgia response from the VHS era. All sounds present in this demo (even the drums!) are from the SQ80 V, with only a little bit of EQ and compression.

Planete X

Maxime Desormieres

Spatial/Melancholic Trap beat. All the melody except the drums and 808 are coming from the SQ80 V. I played with the «Detune» and «glide» option to get an old, organic type of sound. Some of the patches are custom but I used mostly the factory presets.

SQ Acid

Maxime Dangles

A colorful acid house track, with lots of energy and a little mystery. No external effects were used.


Lily Jordy

A lofty, raw and mysterious IDM track using only 6 instances of the SQ80 V from the new Factory library. Automations made using macros and internal FX.

SQ Dreams

Jean-Michel Blanchet

A lofty evolutive piece using different layers of ambient sounds in the SQ80 V Factory. No external effects were used in the making of this demo.

To The Floor

Leonard De Leonard

A straight to the point techno piece that starts off with a bang (and ends with one too). No external effects were used in the making of this demo.

Train Fantome

Maxime Desormieres

Dark Trap/Drill beat, with layers of SQ80 V’s patches. Same MIDI used for all the melody parts, mostly keys and pads. There is a custom 808 with slides and drums to match with it.
