Oberheim Two voice

Post by Unfiltered » Sat Apr 10, 2010 10:08 pm

Just received an email from Tom Oberheim, he says a new two voice system including keyboard with his new SEM's should be available in fall. Awesome! Next thing you know there will be a new ARP odyssey. It's the 70's again!

I really hope a full-on analog revival is near.

Do want!

There's something about duophonic synths that are really appealing... and I love the classic Oberheim sound. Time to start saving pennies then...

Just as long as it doesn't become the 1980's again, it will be alright.

As for the existing one-voice SEM, I want the patchable version. But I also want to connect a MIDI keyboard to the SEM when I am away from my Voyager RME. So, how about using the Doepfer Dark Energy as a MIDI/CV interface? Then one would have a very compact, very portable three oscillator synth with MIDI and patches (and could add foogers like the RingMod and Delay according to ones needs - even "Dark Time", the coming step sequencer from Doepfer)...

You guys who have more (semi-) modular experience than me - do you think using Dark Energy as a MIDI interface for the SEM would work well?

And as an additional question - I suppose you can use the MP-201 as a MIDI/CV interface for the SEM - connecting a keyboard to MIDI in on the MP, and CV from the MP to the SEM - right?

If this really becomes the 1970s (synth-wise) that would be AMAZING! The only thing that would be better would shortly after becoming the 1980s (synth-wise) because the all those 1970s-esque synths would be dirt cheap (...hopefully)

Let's see...

$900 for a MIDI SEM
$600 for a bare panel SEM
$300 (?) for a keyboard

So a 2 Voice will have to cost around $1,800 - $2,000, somewhere in there.
I'd still buy one of these instead of a Prophet '08. I can't wait to see it.

EDIT: Oh, and the original 2 Voice had a sequencer built in. I wonder if he is going to do that.

I wonder if you can daisy chain these together? Like daisy chain a 2 voice with 2 SEM's to make a 4 voice?

Yep sure can, I'm using the MP201 as a MIDI/CV converter to control my little 'fooger modular with a MIDI keyboard, when not using the bass guitar. Works great.
