Add proper 8 Voice Unison
« on: January 28, 2017, 04:21:04 am »
Come on guys, Unison on the original 4 and 8 voice with all the different SEMs programmed differently is what made the Oberheim such a monster! You can do it!

I'm wondering if it would be possible for Arturia to create a shell for the SEM that would allow us to configure our own two-voice, four-voice, or eight-voice monstrosities.
Seems like it should be doable. They could also add a sequencer in there as well. Wouldn't need the programmer but a patch bay (or mod matrix) would be nice.

Yes a hardvare multivoice SEM used a module for each voice. Because of that each voice settings was different from the others.
I suggest to add Voice Variation to simulate this behavior. It could perhaps just be two parameters. One that set the feature on and off, and one that set the amount of voice variation. When off there will be no voice variation, When on each parameter shall be a little different for each voice. The amount of voice variation set the limits for how big the variations can be.

I realize that this do not make it possible to make totally different sounds for each voice. That would need a multitibral function of some kind like the one in Matrix 12 when that function works correct. I also would like that multitimbral feature. But i assume it will be easier to implement and use a simple voice variation.
Even with a multitimbral feature i would like this Voice variation feature in some form too. Something to make it easy to make voice differences. That could also include parameter copying from voice to voice with some kind of randomizing or something like that.

I suggest the feature/s is for all modes including polymode.
