"(c) 2019 vintage synthesizer demo by RetroSound

Oberheim OB-Xa Analog Synthesizer from the year 1981

The demo video shows some self programmed pad and atmo sounds.

The sound character of the curtis chip based OB-Xa is very different to the early discrete and SEM based OB-X from the year 1979.

The OB-Xa use the same Curtis (CEM) chips as the Sequential Prophet-5 but the sound is different.

The OB-Xa was available with 4, 6 or 8 voice cards.

Used by:
Van Halen, Depeche Mode, Thompson Twins, Gary Numan, Rush, Prince, Foreigner, Vangelis, New Order and much more

external fx: a bit delay"
