However, as Tom has only been aware of the analog resurgence for about six months or so, I'm not sure he is fully aware of the current market conditions. If you look at the pictures, the MIDI panel is completely separate from the SEM. I would like to see Tom sell this product in three versions:
- The current desktop package consisting of an SEM, MIDI interface and case
- An additional desktop package that replaces the MIDI panel with CV patch points
- The bare SEM without the desktop package - for those replacing a voice in 2/4/8-voice systems, with adapter cable
Here is the video. Don't worry, after about a minute the focus settles down. I wanted to capture the two units next to each other. The light was horrible (backlit, with no direct light on Tom) so sorry about the overall quality.
Tom discusses the changes made to the new SEM and the reasons behind them, pricing, and demos a few sounds.
