Oberheim OB-8k

Awesome. DVDBORN has a post up on the Oberheim OB-8k. If I remember correctly it was supposed to be a Gibson Oberheim midi controller with a Matrix-6 synth engine built in. The interesting thing is all of the Gibson Oberheim midi controllers at the time were the off-white cream beasties. What I envisioned was something like the Oberheim MC3000 with sliders but I never saw one. Well it looks like DVDBORN somehow found a shot. Title link takes you to the post with a much bigger version of the OB8-k prototype below. Amazing find.
