The original Oberheim SEM (Synthesizer Expander Module) is celebrated for its multimode filter, a distinctive feature that allows smooth transitions between low-pass, notch, and high-pass filters, and also includes a band-pass option. This innovative filter design has been a source of inspiration for modern synths, including the Sequential OB-6, and opens up a world of creative sound design possibilities that extend beyond the traditional low-pass filter. The Seminal preset pack is designed to fully utilize this unique filter, featuring classic Oberheim sounds that highlight the Oberheim’s distinctive characteristics. It also delves into more intricate soundscapes with long, generative sequencer presets that leverage the advanced features of the plugin emulation.
