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.
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.
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.
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.
