So last month Tom Oberheim announced at the Red Bull Music Conference in Boston that he would be releasing a new Oberheim SEM with updated electronics. The original was his first creation done in the 70’s. It was meant to be an add on to other synths so you could layer the sounds and get some real fancy creations going. The SEM was simply a module with no keyboard – two analog oscillators, a 2-pole multimode filter, ADR envelopes, and an LFO. Many artists have used this in there recordings including Van Halen and Detroit’s own, Underground Resistance. Here is a video of Tom explaining this re-issue of an analog classic.
