Freeform discussion of electronic music and the techniques and gear used in making it
So Tom, are you buying it? I'm on the fence. I'm ready to pull the trigger on a Telemark, so I don't know if I need a soft SEM.
Telemark!?! Do it! Do it! Do it!
I've had my eye on the Telemark too. I'd say go for that. I'm hoping to get a review copy of SEM V, but we'll see....
Analogue Haven has Telemark at $1145 and the Oberheim SEM-pro for $1199.
After watching the Oberkorn videos, I'm sold on the Telemark. That is a given. The question is whether I want to spend the money on the same sound available on my laptop for when I'm out of the studio. I do most of my writing/production work while commuting to and from my job. An hour a day adds up, but so does money spent on soft synths. I just bought Chromaphone, and that takes away from my Oberkorn fund. I'm not one with great finger dexterity, so I write with sequencers to play beyond my limitations. I also happen to like pointialistic synth lines in EBM/synthpop, so it works out! I also love the Oberheim sound, though it took me a while to realize it. Sadly, I'll be letting go of my MIDI'd OB 8 to do this, but it's for the best. I don't suppose anybody wants an OB 8?
