Eight Thunderous Voices

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!

As a rock keyboard player, one of the first things I look for in a synth are big gritty saw brass and dirty poly synths that can cut through guitars and drums. Eight Voice is inspired by the granddaddy of those iconic sounds and excels at them! I love the authentic, classic expander module layout and the incredibly functional panel focus feature. This is a desert island synth!

The Eight Voice synth plugin from Cherry Audio sounds so authentic to the original Oberheim SEM modules that I used with Prince back in the day that I couldn't tell the difference. Everything sounded warm and fat just like the original! In fact, I found presets that sounded just like the ones used on Prince's first two albums where they were used exclusively.

Started using Eight Voice as soon as downloaded - it's so great to have those eight voices piled on top of each other and then edit them as a group, or smaller groups. It sounds so FAT! Great to have that zoom feature….. easy on the eye! Thanks Cherry Audio, another winner!
