Overview
  • 1Description

The Oberheim SEM V from Arturia is a faithful recreation of Oberheim's legendary SEM (Synthesizer Expander Module) that was, and is, coveted for its "fatness" and unique harmonic spectrum. Utilizing the company's TAE technology, all of the original features have been reproduced, while several additional features not found on the original have been added.

The virtual instrument can function in standalone mode, or as a plug-in available in most popular formats. Over 500 presets are presented that have been crafted by many of the famous names in analog synthesis.

All the original parameters of the Oberheim SEM
Two oscillators, each offering a sawtooth wave and variable-width pulse wave with PWM, sine wave LFO, 12 dB/octave multi-mode low-, high-, band-pass and notch filter, and two ADS envelope generators
SEM V interface duplicates the behavior of the dual-concentric knobs for coarse and fine-tuning, with the last parameter being easily accessible via right-clicking
Response of the ADS envelopes is accurately reproduced, as well as the VCF Mixer, modulation knobs and switches
Added functionalities include an additional LFO with sine, sawtooth and square waves for more complex modulations, a white noise generator, a sub oscillator, onboard effects (overdrive, chorus, and delay), an arpeggiator and portamento, polyphony and eight-part multi-timbral functioning
Polyphony parameter to limit the polyphony of the plug-in
Eight-Voice Programmer module for editing seven additional virtual SEM voices
"Forward Retrigg" mode for the Eight-Voice Programmer for easy use of sequences with the arpeggiator
"Reassign" mode for the Eight-Voice Programmer (as in the original, the SEM V will first use the boards that are not gated in its voice assignment)
Advanced keyboard follow module allows for drawing modulation curves on the fly with the ability to map up to six parameters of choice
Modulation matrix module offering eight simultaneous modulations which can be set between eight different sources and more than twenty-five destinations
Faster preset management
Factory presets from Ian Boddy, Erik Norlander, Richard Courtel, Kevin Lamb, and Drew Newmann
Sustain pedal active on all systems
Improved performances on all DAWs, notably Logic and Pro Tools
