OB-E is more than just emulation, it offers a unique musical experience.
Sounds HUGE, it brings out the iconic 8-voice based Synthesizer Expander Module (SEM®) (also known as EVS)
into new sonic territory with a host of improvements and additions.
The concept of an 8-voice is actually very simple; based on one SEM,
containing two VCOs with pulse and sawtooth waveforms,
two ADS envelope generators, one LFO and a magic multi-mode filter.
Individually, each SEM is monophonic, but in 8-Voice, since eight SEMs are activated by a polyphonic keyboard,
you get an excellent eight-note polyphonic synthesizer.
The improved OB-E V2 is an accurate 8-voice Oberheim® emulation, thanks to the new Vintage control and improved Detune parameter.
OB-E V2 includes a new reverb, over 100 new patches (over 700 in total), a new zoom function for the sequencer, and a crazy new drum mode,
allowing each SEM to be launched with a dedicated key. We’ve also added 10 drum presets to get you started. If you are looking for a new analog drum machine,
try it, it might surprise you.
