We heard the there might be something brewing from Tom Oberhiem, the luminary synth designer responsible for the original SEMS and some of the most desirable polysynths of last Century.
Since Gibson took over the Oberheim brand - one of the best synth logos in history -we tried to license it for T-Shirts once, but ran into the Gibson legal department and decidied to give it a miss, there's not been much Oberheim action apart from an organ based instrument.
Now Tom has revealed there is to be a new SEM Module with the same circuits as the original SEM with the addition of an integrated MIDI/CV. Price less than $1k. Available in a few months.
Details are sketchy at present, but Matrixsynth and the AH mailing list are good places to keep track of it,
We will post more as and when we get more details.
