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. Predating modern microprocessor control, its eight independent dual-oscillator voice modules could be challenging to program. Cherry Audio Eight Voice's unique Voice Link controls allow simple and powerful grouping of voice module controls, eliminating individually setting each module's controls when homogenous poly sounds are desired. Focus buttons allow instant enlargement of any section of the user interface, making sound programming a breeze, and massively flexible keyboard assign modes enable endless mono and poly keyboard zoning and layering options. All in all, we've transformed the original's daunting user interface into a fun and inviting mondo poly synth experience.

Above all, Eight Voice knocks it out of the park with an incredibly accurate and huge sound, courtesy of award-winning synth designer Mark Barton's (MRB) detailed emulation of the magnificent Oberheim state-variable filter. Eight Voice also includes a feature-packed eight-step "mini" sequencer, and high quality modulation delay and reverb effects. Cherry Audio's Eight Voice is truly bursting with unique sound possibilities at an unbelievably affordable price.

Eight Voice Synthesizer Features:

  • Eight fully independent dual-oscillator voice modules.
  • Oberheim multi-mode filter emulation by award-winning synth designer Mark Barton (MRB).
  • Over 330 presets.
  • Massively configurable mono and poly keyboard assignment modes.
  • Independent key range settings for endless layering and zoning options.
  • Super flexible Voice Linking for powerful voice control grouping.
  • Focus buttons for instant enlargement of all areas of the user interface.
  • Two separate poly assign buses for stacked poly patch creation.
  • Additional LFO with six waveforms and tempo sync.
  • Eight-Step Mini Sequencer with 1/2-step quantizer and tempo sync.
  • Studio-quality reverb and mod delay with tempo sync.
  • Full MIDI control and DAW automation for all controls.

I love it, it needs more presets though and if it used less CPU it would be better, more like the dco, but it's less trouble than the poly; so I count My blessings.

The main drawback of this software is its CPU requirements. I have a i7 3770 and it "cracks" on Reaper. The strange thing is that it works quite well in Reason. I guess it's a problem with multi-core handling.

Other than that, I would like to send a different MIDI sequence to each SEM separately but its is not possible. What is possible is to split the note range eigth times but you ends up with transposition problems.

The sound is quite good and the features need some time to explore (what I didn't really achieve at this time).

I like to run a little sequence on some SEMs and play with the others.

Actually it's not a "must have" but for the price it's fun to use. I could not use it in a song due to CPU requirements without freezing tracks.

Infinitely valuable. I was lost from the moment I opened it and started playing, and for a very reasonable price.
