The synthtiseurs Oberheim SEM-based modules are the ancestors of the entire line of Oberheim synths. Their typical sound, including filter 2 li ples used still today a REFERENCE, A model of the kind sought-copy (Andromeda) and Modl.
The Voice 4, with 8 oscillators, its 4 LFOs, 4 filters allows both trs sounds powerful but can also, thanks to the type of filter, offering sound of a large fine.
A modular power!
Although quil ny has in faade no possibility of 4 Voice of Patchage between module, electronic circuit modules SEM t have cleverly conus very easy to allow this type of change. 4 The Voice can become a real gruyre allowing patching of DIFFERENT paramtres of modules.
In the words of Tom Oberheim itself, only the first synths of the mark (SEM, OB1, X and Xa) had a real Oberheim MODELS over succeeding. The sound of the early silent fatter and dirty and was therefore instruments guts. The models share ultrieurs most complete design would sound thinner and cleaner.
The Voice 2 Voice have t and 4 Submitted en1975 NAMM Show. Which consisted of the first NAMM Submitted OBERHEIM products under his name, and cest quil and entered the world of builders synthtiseurs.
OBERHEIM in 1976 introduced the program in its complment Systm SEM which allowed for the User mmoriser paramtres the position of some (but not all!) Of each module. Consisted of the first programmers of this type about the public.
The 4 (8) Voice rest is lunique offers polyphonic dOBERHEIM jusquen 1979, release date of lOBX.
The "White Elephant" is a synth exceptional grain inimitable. 4 The SEM can be as utiliss 4 synths indpendants simultanment with 4 DIFFERENT sounds (but using mono) or by pilotssparment squeceurs external. But the 4-V can also be used as a poly 4 votes.
The Oberheim 4 voice is a very good synth, which "modularized externally" can sound very significant research as a Moog modular (with a tilt less), it provided that it is good "modularized". Operation in "closed" system makes it similar to one or OBX OBX-a-way that would work in 4 instead of 8, with the problem of modules SEM accorder.Utilisé in mono, this is good!
With the OBX-a (which is very particular), 4 voice Oberheim synth is I like most.
Editing sound: delicate because a knob = one function, but a knob
shot of a mm, is radically changing the sound.
Manual: the site Oberheim
Sounds super well with a potato, the Oberheim very big sound with a gritty side and at the same time syrupy. Nothing to do with what was produced after.
I use it since its release
When using this synth, it is definitely "stuck"
Quality / price ratio: suitable market opportunity because it esr rare.
Modularized externally, it is an undeniable musical value of collector.
The meileur Oberheim and probably will never be the synth for everyone.
