In Depth

Spot-on recreation of the original SEM
The central section of the Oberheim SEM V virtual instrument is a dead-to-rights model of Tom Oberheim’s classic SEM. The recreation goes far deeper than just the graphics – we’re talking about a the very interaction between each component of the SEM analog synthesis architecture. Side-by-side, even a synth guru with decades of experience would have a hard time telling the sound of an original SEM and Arturia’s Oberheim SEM V soft synth apart… that is, until you get to the incredible extras Arturia added to their version of the SEM.

Loaded with Arturia-exclusive extras
Arturia’s Oberheim SEM V comes loaded with amazing bonus components never found on a classic Oberheim SEM. A second LFO, a sub-octave generator, and a white noise generator expand the SEM’s core synthesis base, whereas built-in overdrive, chorus, and delay effects let you add unprecedented depth and dimension to your sound. Arturia also gave the Oberheim SEM V portamento control and a built-in arpeggiator, so you can dial in anything from gliding leads to percussive patterns. And then there are the three exclusive modules, including Keyboard Follow, Voice Programmer, and Modulation Matrix, each of which let you take hold of advanced performance controls. It’s like having a whole rack full of SEMs, plus an room full of CV-manipulation gear. Prepare to totally geek out on this awesome virtual synth!
