Arturia Releases iSEM - Eight Voice System Polyphonic Oberheim SEM for iPad

iSEM Tutorial Published on Oct 9, 2013 Arturia Web·90 videos

Update: Intro video:

iTunes: Arturia iSEM

"iSEM is compatible with iPad 2 and later, iPad with Retina Display and iPad mini.

Apple’s Inter-App Audio connectivity (requires iOS7), AudioBus, Korg’s WIST and Apple’s CoreMIDI are all supported.

iSEM is a recreation of the classic 1974 Oberheim SEM (Synthesizer Expander Module), one of the world's first self-contained synthesizer modules and the first to bear the "Oberheim Electronics" name.

The Oberheim SEM was made famous by artists and bands such as Lyle Mays, Jan Hammer, Joseph Zawinul, Supertramp, 808 State, Vince Clarke and Depeche Mode.

Based on the TAE® technology found in our Oberheim SEM V software, iSEM brings back the sound and special characteristics of this iconic synth in an sonically accurate and expanded touch-based emulation.

What you can do with the iSEM?

The iSEM is a powerful instrument capable of producing a wide range of warm analog sounds.

Reproducing the unique SEM architecture, with its oscillator sync, characteristic filter shape and specific envelope response, the iSEM is able to generate the fat basses that have made the Oberheim brand so popular. Thanks to its simple and clever PW and pitch modulations, it is also very easy to produce moving and lively leads.

Its remarkable 12 dB/oct multimode filter is a real blast from the past, becoming an awesome weapon in the context of current electronic music. This unique module can instantly tailor your sound to fat, crisp, or spectral textures with access to all the nuances in between…

iSEM comes with over 500 sounds that you can browse through and play. You can also easily create your own sounds with the easy to use interface.

Play iSEM's numerous sounds from the iPad keyboard or control iSEM from a MIDI keyboard or other app via CoreMIDI and integrate it into your studio or live performance.

If you are an owner of of the Arturia SEM V software on your Mac or PC, you can even import and export sounds between your laptop or desktop SEM V and iSEM.

All the original parameters of the Oberheim SEM: two oscillators, each offering sawtooth wave and variable-width pulse wave with PWM, sine wave LFO, 12dB/oct multi-mode Filter with low-pass, high-pass, band-pass and notch, two ADS envelope generators.

Added functionalities: New LFO, Noise, Sub oscillator, Arpeggiator, Portamento.
Polyphonic playability
8 Voice Programmer module allows each voice to have different settings
HOLD and CHORD modes.
Virtual Analog Chorus.
Virtual Analog Delay.
Full user MIDI mapping of panel controls.
Supports WIST sync to other iOS devices.
Supports AudioBus and Apple’s Inter-App Audio connectivity (requires iOS7).

The Oberheim™ name used here is a trademark of the Gibson Guitar Corp. The trademark is used by license to Arturia."

Synthrotek Space Drum Complete DS-8 Clone Analog Drum Synth

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.
via this auction

videos posted here and here.

"Originally designed by Coron in the 1980's for drummers and percussionists to add synth capabilities to their sets, our clone stays true to the DS-8 Drum Synce circuit with a few modifications that expand its capabilities. You don't need to be banging out beats to play around with this awesome synth!


Amazing analog signal generation! - Wobbly lows, screeching sirens, dive bombs, squeals, and everything in-between. On-board pannable white noise generator puts out snare and hi-hat hits!
Three different ways to play: use a piezo cell to trigger it like a real drum, send a Trigger/Gate pulse (~+5V) from a sequencer/simple timer circuit, or activate the DS-8 Clone with the on-board Manual Trigger momentary switch!
Multiple controls to tailor your sound! Sensitivity sets your input threshold to adjust how hard you need to hit or the minimum voltage level to trigger the circuit. The length of the trigger pulse can be varied from staccato to a lengthy drop-off with the Decay control. Sweep adjusts the variation of the output frequency. The analog LFO (low frequency oscillator) circuitry is controlled by the Mode and Rate. VCO (voltage controlled oscillator) sets a base level frequency to limit your frequency range. Dirty up your signal with the Pan control, which varies the amount of white noise you'll need for snare hits or deep tom rumble. Level controls the volume of the final VCA (voltage controlled amplifier) portion of your circuit.
All potentiometers used for customizing your sound can be mounted on-board to minimize time-consuming wiring.
Tone Control switch allows you to toggle between the two standard noise sources.
CV Input makes the DS-8 Clone even better! Plug in an external LFO generator or use a sequencer to make some hands-free music!
Powering your DS-8 Clone is no problem! Use a 9-15V 100mA+ CENTER NEGATIVE AC Adapter. The 9V battery also can act as a backup power supply that is only engaged when nothing is plugged into the DC Jack.
PLEASE NOTE: The use of any adapter other than a CENTER NEGATIVE adapter will destroy the circuit and void any warranty on this product.
PCB (printed circuit board) measures 6" x 2.0625" and is designed in-house by our very own electronics engineer!"

PAiA Programmable Drum Set

Click here for images via this auction

Some of the Details pulled:
"From the manual:

'"While most electronic rhythm units offer only a limited choice of pre-determined rhythm patterns, the PAIA Programmable Drum Set allows the user to tailor the pattern, time signature and drum sounds to each application. Among the unique features provided by the unit are touch sensitive electronic controls and the provision for an independently structured bridge rhythm."

From an interview with John Simonton (founder of PAIA)
"'That's been credited as the first programmable drum machine, and it may be. For about a year, it was dominant, because there weren't any other programmable drum sets."

Larry Fast (Synergy) wrote:

"1978 I built one of John's Programmable Drum machines from a PAiA kit. As far as I know, that was the first ever drum box that the user could program patterns into and store them in battery backed up RAM. I showed it to Peter Gabriel who loved the concept. Marvin Jones put together another one for Peter to keep. That became the basis for all of the electronic drums on PG#3 (Games Without Frontiers, Biko and many others). From that came the LinnDrum a few years later. Thanks John, for single-handedly changing how we make records."

My comments:

You can program drum patterns, and store them. This was a new beginning for electronic drums and sequencing.

I built this unit from a kit in 1980.

I have been an electronics hobbyist and musician for over 40 years. When I first saw this unit, I knew I had to have one. I saw it as an opportunity to learn about touch switches, drum patterns, analog sound sources (oscillators, white noise generators), and digital logic. I also imagined using the logic control circuit to trigger other analog sound sources. The term sequencing had yet to be used on drum machines because prior to this unit the previous electronic drum machines only played fixed patterns. I built some other sound sources, but never integrated them into this unit. I preferred the internal sounds. This drum synth has a unique sound."
