Oberheim's Lost Classic: The OB12 - Synth and Software

video upload by synthandsoftware

"Synth and Software presents: Oberheim's Lost Classic - The OB12. Mark Jenkins profiles a synth that continues to divide opinion after 20 years"


Some of the divide comes from the OB12 being a Viscount virtual analog. Viscount licensed the Oberheim name.

Sound demos come in at 5:36. It kind of reminds me of an Akai AX-60 in character more than a vintage Oberheim. I actually own both, and vintage Oberheim. It has a similar edge to the AX-60. The OB-12 does excel at pads and warm strings. It's an intersting synth.
