Arturia Oberheim SEM V v22.214.171.124 [MacOSX]
More than a Resemblance
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.
Favored by top artists and producers such as Goldfrapp, Herbie Hancock and even John Carpenter for its fatness and unique harmonic spectrum, the Oberheim sound is an absolute must have for your studio.
Analog masterpiece revisited
Accurately recreating the tone, waveshapes, multimode 12dB/octave filter and other detailed characteristics, the Oberheim SEM V delivers all the deep analog sounds that made its grand ancestor so unique and praised among all analog synthesizers. The Oberheim SEM V also expands the possibilities of the original thanks to powerful additional features. Besides polyphony, MIDI control and arpeggiation, a full set of new parameters is available.
The SEM V not only excels at growling basses and textured leads, but it also brings the warm brasses, ethereal pads, and amazing sequences possible on the expensive Oberheim 8 Voice model. By using the 8 Voice Programmer module, it becomes extremely intuitive to edit each SEM voice independently to create lively modulations in your sound. But you can even go further in shaping complex sounds, by using the advanced Keyboard Follow and the Modulation Matrix.
