The Arturia SEM V2 Software utilizes their TAE modeling technology, to bring a giant back to life, with the faithful emulation of thelegendary Oberheim SEM - Synthesizer Expander Module.
The Arturia SEM V2 Software is a powerful instrument capable of producing a wide range of warm analog sounds. Reproducing the unique SEM architecture with its oscillator sync, characteristic filter shape and specific envelope response, SEM V2 is able to generate the fat basses that have made the Oberheim brand so popular. Thanks to its simple and clever pitch bend and mod wheel routings, it's very easy to produce moving and lively leads. Its remarkable 12 dB/oct multimode filter is a real blast from the past, and it's an awesome tool in the context of today's electronic music. This unique module can instantly tailor your sound to fat, crisp or spectral textures with every shade of nuance in-between.
And there's more!
The added polyphony and multitimbral capability will allow you to step into a world of deep pads, warm brass and complex sequences, features which were characteristic of the later 2-, 4-, and 8-voice Oberheim synthesizers. The Arturia SEM V2 module basically has the power of 8 SEMs! Thanks to the ergonomic 8-Voice Programmer module, setting each SEM V2oice is much faster than on hardware, leading to unique sonic results. Combined with the Keyboard Follow and the Modulation Matrix, the expressive capabilities of SEM V2 have gone far beyond the original.
