About Oberheim SEM
A Simple Monophonic Synth with A Huge Sound

When Tom Oberheim created the first Oberheim Synthesizer Expander Module (model SEM-1) in 1974, he had one goal, to make a synth that sounded great, whilst being extremely simple to use.

In the decades since the release of this iconic synth, it's been used by countless legendary musicians, making the SEM one of the most revered synthesizers of all time.

As well as painstakingly recreating the huge, unmistakable sound of the SEM, the GForce Oberheim SEM also recreates the ethos of the original, a simple monophonic synth that allows you to shape incredible sounds in an instant.

And with Tom Oberheim's seal of approval, you can be confident in its authenticity. Add to this more than 400+ categorized presets, and inspiration is just moments away.

Made in Collaboration with Oberheim

We first worked with Tom Oberheim and Marcus Ryle (an Oberheim engineer during the 80s) when creating the GForce Oberheim OB-E v2.

During this time, Tom and Marcus revealed that they felt there were no software emulations of the SEM that accurately recreated the sound and the ethos of the original monophonic SEM.

We decided to change that, and under the close guidance of Tom and Marcus, we developed the GForce Oberheim SEM to ensure an experience that is truly authentic to the original instrument.

Nigel Hopkins - Keys / Composer / Producer

"You legends! The arpeggiator is lovely and the fx and filter are sublime. I love the simplicity of it. So so simple. Was hoping to do a bass synth and was gonna go minimoog… not sure now… the SEM has a punch to it."
