brilliant, even if its not cheap. one question arises though...what about the telemark and semblance from analog solutions?

As for distribution, my first guess is Audio MIDI since he and the others he name drops in this clip had a symposium that they videoed and sold. As for other SEM based modules, good question. Are there design patents in question? I noticed a lack of logo on the prototype new SEM. Hmmm.

Sounds great. I'm with Beermaster... I want at least four of them.. Hey, I wonder if they can be daisy chained to form a polyphonic system? I should find out first before ordering, lol.

Best of luck Tom! (and Tom) Said...
Re semblance and telemark - I have tried the former and while it sounds good it lacks much of the SEM peculiarity. I own an original SEM and am very familiar with its character. The lowpassfilter for example is one of the smoothest sounding to be found anywhere. There are also a few sweetspots when fading the lp/hp filters. You also get a strange (and cool) digital-ish vibe when you tune the oscillators close. Similar to what stacking two analog waveforms in a s+s synth gives. All these sounds *like* an SEM on the Semblance, but more as a consequence of design than actually capturing the sem sound.

there's no logo on the new one Ken, because gibson still own the logo and oberheim brand. Otherwise it's pretty faithfull to the original, which i have used in TVS and four voice form.

Any chance of a reissue of an OB-Xa? Hope he has considered?
