Note the MoPho. This shot is recent - from AES 2008. You have to wonder what Tom Oberheim is thinking. Anyone think he'll join the fray and do something new in the synth world?
Update via yotsuba&! in the comments:
"i talked to Tom Oberheim- he's currently in the process of remaking the SEM module- just like the original, not digital, not midi, etc. i thought that would make it in the title, i took the picture this afternoon! it'll likely be released as a brand with something like "Tom Oberheim" since he can't use the name Oberheim alone. we talked about Xpander maintenance, incidentally."
Update via yotsuba&!
"it's true! it'll be noted in the electronic music magazines since there were journalists in the crowd and the AES panel was moderated by Electronic Musician."
A new Oberheim SEM.
Update: see New SEM from Tom Oberheim for all the details.
