Cherry Audio has announced the release of the its emulation of the Oberheim Eight Voice, one of the world’s rarest and most desirable vintage instruments.

The Eight Voice polyphonic synthesizer delivers an incredibly accurate and huge sound, courtesy of award-winning synth designer Mark Barton’s (MRB) detailed emulation of the Oberheim state-variable filter. The synth also includes a feature-packed 8-step “mini” sequencer, and high quality modulation delay and reverb effects.

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.
