This video captures a visit by Tom Oberheim to deliver one of his new Oberheim Two Voice Pro synthesizers.
Oberheim drops by the home of SF Bay area musician Mikael Johnston to deliver Mikael’s new Two-Voice synthesizer, and gives us a tour of the synth and his design philosophy in the process.
Oberheim Two Voice Pro Features:
- Mini-Sequencer is enhanced – you still generate a sequence with the knobs ( up to 16 positions ) but you can store sequences from the knobs into flash memory
- Two sequences can be played simultaneously (or play one sequence while also playing on the keyboard, like the old one)
- After sequences are stored in flash memory, you can edit them to add 2-way, 3-way or 4-way ratcheting and you can program the gate length from zero (like a rest) up to almost the complete step length
- Sequences can be chained into songs, and each step in a song can be programmed for sequence number, transpose amount and number of repeats
- Sequencer syncs to Midi Clock
- Keyboard outputs velocity and pressure
- Each module (both SEMs, Mini-Sequencer, Keyboard Control) has mini-jack patch points (56 patchpoints)
- Pitch and Modulation wheels
- Pan pots
- Headphone output
- Separate Vibrato LFO
The U.S. price of the new Oberheim Two Voice Pro is $3495. See Oberheim’s site for details.
