Arturia Filter SEM Effect Plugin

Whether you are looking for an expansive sequencer or a true-blue synth filter, this plug-in will take your in-the-box synth rig to the next level.

The electronic download of SEM-Filter License from Arturia is virtual software that models Tom Oberheim's original SEM, or Synth Expander Module. The SEM-Filter serves many purposes like adding polyphony, fattening up sound, and performing sequences in a supporting role for a main synthesizer. Oberheim's brainchild instrument is now considered a classic and can be used by producers, sound engineers, and artists on Mac and Windows computers, to capture a taste of that harmonically rich, classic tone in your DAW and music programs.

Combining simplicity with pure tone-shaping power, Filter SEM is a futuristic twist on a classic synth filter
Renowned for its pioneering technology in the 70s, we paid tribute not only to its sound but also the SEM's reputation as a trailblazer. Using the meticulous modelling techniques, and by adding exciting new features, we have created a true modern classic audio filter.

No longer confined to a synthesizer, you can now use the era-defining filter tone of Tom Oberheim's cult synth module on any audio source you wish. Process acoustic instruments in your DAW, shape vocals, perform sweeps on your whole mix, create builds, rises, and drops, even use it to improve a soft-synths stock filter.

Filter SEM is a must-have creative tool for any modern musician.
