We took a chance to talk with synthesizer design legend Tom Oberheim as he presents his new Eurorack format SEM-X. Tom discusses the origins of the SEM and its classic 2-pole filter design, then turns to the new PS-1A and RM-1B, modern Eurorack versions of his 70's era Phase Shifter and Ring Modulator. And, we chat about the OB-6 keyboard and desktop synths and Tom's manufacturing partnership with Dave Smith Instruments.
