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.

It sounds lovely, but I am disappointed that I have to turn off the unwanted reverb on every patch, there is no way I can see to disable it.

Great instrument for this price.

I can recommend it without reservation.

It was also my first purchase through KVR.

Everything worked out great.

Superb simulation of the original device, but:

The copy protection system wants to register the plugin and load some stuff online from time to time.

At homestudio that's ok, but on stage you mostly have no internet and therefore it's a very high risk to use this plugin there. I had several connections to the support, got some solutions but have still this annoying behavior. So only two and not five stars.

I am a huge fan of the SEM sound, so I really wanted to like this, but I find this instrument is way too hard to work with and it doesn't sound as good as some of the other SEM-like emulations around. My advice would be to wait until bx_oberhausen is on sale and buy that instead.

Dear Potential Buyer, .

I found the Eight Voice to have tremendous volume and terrific reverberating vibrant sounds like that of a real Oberheim Eight Voice Synthesizer. I think that the Eight Voice suitable for all kinds of music styles.
