Arturia announce Oberheim SEM V plug-in
If you can’t afford an original, or indeed the hugely similar Analogue Solutions Telemark (featured in our 10 Best Analogue Synths feature) then this looks set to be well worth a look. The SEM V reproduces the tone, wave shapes, multimode 12dB/octave filter and many of the original’s characteristics and also features polyphony, MIDI control, arpeggiation and some innovative functions, such as an 8-voice programmer.
The SEM V has two oscillators with sawtooth wave and variable-width pulse wave (with PWM), sine wave LFO, 12dB/oct multi-mode filter with low-pass, high-pass, band-pass and notch, plus two ADSD envelopes.
On top of this, Arturia have added a new LFO, Noise, Sub oscillator, on board effects and Portamento. It works in Standalone, VST, RTAS and AU formats on PC and MAC.
