Cool -- although I'm more interested in emus of stuff that isn't currently available in hardware, so may pass on this.

 

OTOH unless Tom comes out with the keyboard edition of SEM or Two-Voice (there was some talk of this earlier), I may prefer software to a table-top module.

 

I'd probably be more excited if this was coming from Way Out Ware or G-Force than Arturia. Too bad the other one (SAM) is Windows-only.

Does anyone else find that Arturia's emulations of various instruments all tend to sound similar, instead of capturing the individual character of the original instrument?

Yes. I didn't buy the Jupiter for pretty much that reason. Oh, and dongle, interface...

I´ve found it a good idea always, to have one Win PC beneath the Macs.

 

It´s so easy to make a Obie 4 voice or 8 voice in the DAW now.

With Reaper and it´s routing abilities,- copy SAM 4 times within your VST plugins folder, rename SAM DLL w/ numbers at the end (_1 _2 _3 _4), create a folder track and 4 child tracks in Reaper, route MIDI channels, audio and PAN,- use all 4 SAMs monophonic,- bingo,- there´s the 4-voice !

I payed EUR 21.- special offer when it was released,- well ...

I agree totally!

 

 

 

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

:facepalm:

Why even bother with this when Tom is out there making new versions and also has the 4 voice coming out. The new SEM is cheap and sounds great. Life is too short for emulations.

 

If you are going to be using Arturia you may as well ditch the old lady and get a fleshlight. Emulations are all vile and degrading.

Gonga, former FVS-1 owner, says it sounds gorgeous (6th post) and someone found an "anomaly" 1st, then compared w/ Sonic Projects OPX and recognized the "anomaly" is part of the oberheimish sound.

"Sendy",- last post here

Using plugins doesn´t mean not using hardware and I myself own 2 Oberheim synths,- the Xpander and Matrix-1000,- but I find it very comfortable to have the oberheimish sound also in my DAW w/ total recall, especially for that price.
