  1. Notice how he mentions something ‘bigger’ that he plans to release in the vein of the later Oberheims but minus the CEMs… Excite.

  2. Good to see Tom back in the saddle. I wish I had space and dough for one of his creations in the flesh, but … I console myself with the Arturia iSEM emulation on my iPad.

    There was an answer to “Why no sine wave?” question that he might have given for the less techie-minded in the audience – he saw the horrible complexity of a three order pure tone generator – and that is

    “It’s a _subtractive_ synth. There’s nothing to subtract from a sine wave.”

    and of course one can always notch out everything except the fundamental on the others. If one absolutely must.
