Oberheim Xpander - Legendary Analog Mega Synth SN G50454

via this auction

"You know what this is... This is the most advanced, most elegant sounding Oberheim of them all.. besides the Matrix 12. She purrs... she growls and so much more. Once you play it, you'll instantly recognize all those instant classic 80s sounds. Not many synth freaks have one.. most have never played one. This synth is not for the faint of heart. It delivers in every way.

This is the Made in USA version not the inferior made overseas version. It was fully overhauled by a veteran analog synth tech. The main encoders were replaced with new stock certified pots purchased by Syntaur Synth Parts. It was also calibrated and tested over and over again to ensure years of usage to come. It sounds amazing, and it works as it should.. NO operational errors here. Plus as you can see from the pics.. it looks fantastic as well.

As you can see from the many pics.. ALL tests PASS fast and without issue.

This synth blows away all the other mammoth synth like MemoryMoog, Jupiter 8 etc.. It just sounds bigger, wider, sweeter and ballsier. Period."

No it doesn't, but it still is nice. :) The MATRIX-12 and Xpander's forte is the modulation matrix and thus flexibility. It has two oscillators while the MemoryMoog had three. The MemoryMoog sounds bolder, the Jupiter-8 fuller? Depends on how you define it. The Jupiter-8 and MemoryMoog are more straight forward. All legendary synths.
