Tom Oberheim announces new SEM Analog Two Voice Pro Synthesizer
MORAGA, Calif. (MuseWire) – Tom Oberheim has announced the Two Voice Pro Synthesizer, expanding upon the recreated SEM analog synth modules he rolled out last year. One of the most coveted classic analog synthesizers, the new “Two Voice” looks to be shipping very soon, June 2012.
According to Tom: People often ask me: “Tom, what was the favorite one of your synthesizers from before?” And my answer is always: “the Two Voice”! I am introducing, for scheduled delivery in June 2012, the “tom oberheim” Two Voice Pro Synthesizer. It is similar to the original from 1975, but with some very interesting upgrades.
– Mini-Sequencer is enhanced – you still generate a sequence with the knobs ( up to 16 positions ) but you can store sequences from the knobs into flash memory (up to 99 sequences stored)
– Two sequences can be played simultaneously (or play one sequence while also playing on the keyboard, like the old one)
– After sequences are stored in flash memory, you can edit them to add 2-way, 3-way or 4-way ratcheting and you can program the gate length from zero (like a rest) up to almost the complete step length
– Sequences can be chained into songs, and each step in a song can be programmed for sequence number, transpose amount and number of repeats
– Sequencer syncs to Midi Clock
– Keyboard outputs velocity and pressure
– Each module (both SEMs, Mini-Sequencer, Keyboard Control) has mini-jack patch points (over 50 patchpoints)
– Pitch and Modulation wheels
– Pan pots
– Headphone output
– Separate Vibrato LFO.
The U.S. price of the new Two Voice Pro is $3495. More information: http://www.tomoberheim.com .
