Carre Couleur Oberheim SEM V Audio clips


by Kevin Lamb
All sounds from this cinematic track come from the factory presets by Kevin Lamb. No external FX or channel EQ were used. Mod wheel and aftertouch used amply to morph sounds and show off features.
Berlin School

by Drew Neumann
This musical piece is in memory of the brilliant Synth DIY Engineer/Musician Jürgen Haible.

by Drew Anderson
This ambient track showcases some deep SEM pads and a sequence that gets a very mineral sound from the notch position of the filter. Thanks to the Voice Programmer, the panning of each voice is cycling which brings a spacialization effect typical of the 4 and 8 Voice models. All sounds are from the Oberheim SEM V including the percussion.
Stereo Arpeggio

by Noritaka Ubukata
The Arpeggiator is used in combination with the 8-Voice Programmer module in order to create this lively and organic arpeggio. The continuous shift from one voice to another, through different settings of filter, tune, pan and volume generates a beautiful instability that is characteristic of the Oberheim x-Voice series.
Dirty Orchestra

by Noritaka Ubukata
This demo, in the fashion of 70's krautrock improvisations, shows typical Oberheim orchestral sounds generated only by one instance of 8 voices. The output is processed through the on-board overdrive and analog delay units to generate the typical dirtiness and lo-fidelity of early tape recordings.
Berlin Berlin

by Pierce Warnecke
This track, in the techno vein, uses 3 different presets from the Oberheim SEMV: a classic acid bass line, a smooth arpeggiated melody and a full, rich pad using the SEMV's hard synced oscillator. All drums/percussion were created using the 909 preset in Spark. Just external compression and side-chaining were added.
Pad Filter Sweep

by Noritaka Ubukata
This rich pad mixes a sawtooth with pitch modulation and pulse wave with pulse width modulation. You can hear the characteristic SEM filter sweep through band-pass, low pass, notch and hi-pass modes.
OB Brass

by Noritaka Ubukata
A typical Oberheim brass sound, as heard on the 80's hit "Jump", with an added envelope modulation which brings a more realistic pitch shifting on the attack.
