The Oberheim TEO-5 is a compact 5-voice polyphonic synthesizer that blends classic analog warmth with modern versatility. It features onboard analog VCOs and VCFs, with the two VCOs offering selectable waveforms (SAW, SQUARE/PULSE, TRIANGLE, and NOISE) with hard sync and X-Mod capabilities, as well as an extended unison mode allowing you to combine from one to five voices. Additional features include a dedicated FM section, polyphonic portamento controls, and a Vintage knob to adjust the vintage characteristics of the synth. The synth also includes the Oberheim SEM filter, a suite of LFOs and digital effects processors, including classic chorus, delay, reverb, and accurate emulations of Oberheim’s Ring Mod and Phasor effects. It has a modulation matrix with 19 slots, 19 sources, and 64 destinations; a 64-step polyphonic sequencer; a multi-mode arpeggiator; and a velocity and pressure sensitive Fatar keyboard spanning three and a half octaves.
