A giant has returned to life. Oberheim’s legendary SEM – Synthesizer Expander Module – is back for the first time as a high-end software emulation powered by Arturia’s exclusive TAE® technology. Faithfully reproducing the warm Oberheim SEM tone, the Oberheim SEM V is also polyphonic, with a full array of innovative sonic features. This emulation will be shipping from 15th december.
After years without any addition to their Synthesizer Anthology series, Arturia will bring back to life in software format one of the world’s most sough-after synthesizers.
The roster of Oberheim keyboards is legendary and the groundbreaking Synthesizer Expander Module, the SEM, was the sonic engine that started it all. Whether standing alone and singing via CVs and gates, or grouped in a Tolex-covered case with a keyboard to become a Two-Voice with a mini-sequencer, a Four-Voice, or the rare and godlike Eight-Voice, the SEM produces a gutsy, unique palette of sounds that have always been gotta-have-‘em parts of the serious keyboardist’s toolkit.
