Brainworx’s New Bx_Oberhausen Plugin Recreates The Oberheim SEM Synthesizer In Polyphonic

SYNTH ANATOMY uses affiliation & partner programs (big red buttons) to finance a part of the activity. If you use these, you support the website. Thanks! 

Brainworx has today launched bx_oberhausen, a new high-quality Synthesizer plugin that emulates the Oberheim SEM Synthesizer. Bx_oberhausen is not just monophonic Synth but also supports polyphonic patches up to 32 voices.

Like the original, it comes with two oscillators (saw, pulse), one state-variable filter, two LFOs, and envelopes. New in the bx_Oberhausen is frequency modulation for the oscillators, a modulation matrix, and a versatile effection section. The latter is based on several effects known from different Brainworx plugins.

The bx_oberhausen draws deeply from Brainworx Audio’s extensive experience of working with analog audio equipment to creatively craft world-class mixing and mastering plugins. As the cutting-edge company’s highly-anticipated first Virtual Instrument, it effectively revisits an acclaimed analog synthesizer expander module much loved by generations of musicians for its sought-after sound.

The sound itself is reliant on fully-analog, discrete circuits, and a classic state-variable 2-pole filter. Some of the key features which have never been done before on this synth is a powerful unison mode, M/S Technology and the signature Brainworx Audio Tolerance Modeling Technology (TMT)


  • Full analog modeling with full polyphony up to 32 voices
  • TMT inside: Tolerance Modeling Technology (TMT) to accurately replicate individual component variations specified by the manufacturer.
  • Unison: Combine your voices to a powerful unison mode. Together with the unique TMT feature, Unison generates a rich, complex and analog sound unparalleled by any other virtual instrument.
  • M/S Technology: Create subtle effects like solid bass foundation as well as crazy stereo processing with M/S Technology.
  • Modulation Matrix: The extensive Modulation Matrix gives you a whole dimension of sound design possibilities.
  • Effect section: small versions of effects products proudly carrying the Brainworx brand – including the infamous Mäag AIR BAND®.
  • FM: We push the boundaries of achievable sounds by adding Frequency Modulation to an analog synth classic.
  • The arpeggiator comes with all functions you would expect from it – including an adjustable “swing” parameter.
  • In-Plugin Preset Management with NKS support
