Taming A Classic Beast

Our most ambitious instrument to date, Cherry Audio’s Eight Voice polyphonic synthesizer meticulously emulates the immense sound of the Oberheim Eight Voice, one of the world’s rarest and most desirable vintage instruments. 

ITS $29 bucks .... go get it :D

While you are there have a look at the POLYMODE Synth, MG1+, CA2600, DCO106 .. all around the same price, All CLASSIC retro synths

Just astounded! Thanks. I downloaded it, installed and browsed a few presets and immediately came here to post the deal. Of course, others were faster! 😉

 

I browsed the available options and were very pleased. I made my living for many years with one of the hardware beats back in the 80's and this seems to have all plus extras!...and you don't have to leave it on overnight for the oscillators to settle!

 

Thanks! First impression is great job. Sounds wonderful has the thngs expected. Great job!

 

BTW. I do still own a stripped down 2 voice version with keyboard currently disconnected in road case and deep storage... 😉 (originally a 4voice but that's a story for another time and when the keyboard got disconnected0

At the rate these guys are adding new retro synths I am beginning to wonder will I need Arturia any more :D ... CA stuff is way "lighter" on the system resources / fast to load etc and they begin to cover that niche. Next up a DX7?

Need to check later if there is a discount if you own the other synths.

I also wonder if it will be available for Voltage Modular.  There are advantages in both formats, its a shame you have to buy both but given the low prices one can't complain too much.

It may go lower if you complete a bundle, but its a moot point for me as I have just found I don't have all the synths as VSTis .  I will probably buy the Voltage Modular version as it give a lot more flexibility. Currently $29 at Cherry for the Poly/Mono version bundle.

I have been getting into Voltage Modular lately, the latest addition being the Octagon sequencer which is very nice.

SEM was added at the same price as the 8 voice standalone

No extra discounts from Cherry Audio AFAIK

I checked that out as well...
The module version is missing the appegiator /summer module - ie the synth version is made of 3 types of Oberheim type modules while the module version has 2.
Possible CherryAudio may give a further discount on the the synth version if you purchase the module(s)...

It would be cool if Cherry would bundle the two. I already have Voltage Modular, and was wondering which Oberheim to get? The module, or standalone?

The standalone version comes with a crap-ton of presets if that makes difference.
The modules  30ish...

It is the same with all the other modular synth voices .

Buy the standalones if preset convenience is important.

Of course, the host module in VM (not part of the free version) can load the standalone VST although not as flexible as the SEM

Still leaning to the modular version, I have several sequencers and an arpeggiator there so I don't think I would miss them much versus the extensive modulation and processing capabilities that would be added.

Plus, with the SEM modules one could always build a monster 16 voice modular ... why stop at 8?

While there may not be tons of presets in the modular version, it looks like there are some good ones and ones that act as a good example of how to use some on the switching and boolean modules.

The Ambiant Strings preset in Modular is gorgeous, combining the poly version of the SEM Expander with Cherry's Poly Stereo Spread module, two incidences of a Cherry's digital delay and a digital reverb.  I think it will become my favorite synth strings preset.

I was under the impression that if we purchased (from the Cherry Audio Store) either the Eight Voice Instrument or the Voltage Modular version and then purchased the other of the two, there was a 20% discount on the second one. However, if you purchase them at the same time, there was no discount. 

Of course, that might have changed by now.

As someone that bought these twice, I paid $29 for modular and the $23 for vst/au so second one was discounted...

Yes an extra discount applies when buying  both SEM and 8 Voice

Not when

Too bad the synth version doesn't show you the cabling.
I would buy it just to learn the the routing.

I wonder if at some point they're going to offer the Oberheim flavored appregiator module for sale.
