Oberheim OB-X8 - Creative Sound Design Synth of Dreams

Oberheim OB-X8 Sounds STUNNING! video upload by JimDaneker

"My first real spin on the new Oberheim OB-X8. I wanted to just twist knobs and see where it took me, and as a huge Oberheim fan, I have to say I was incredibly impressed. Any of my skepticism about resurrecting the OB series was happily unfounded. This thing is TOTALLY worthy of the name, and every bit a real OB.

Reverb is from my all-time favorite, the GFI Specular Tempus, which has a remarkable ability to be 'wet' while not getting in the way. No other processing was used; you're hearing the dry synth with the reverb return at about 80%. If you'd like both dry & wet tracks as isolated WAV files, let me know! You can reach me via my website below.

Table of contents:

00:00 - Fifth Swell
03:15 - Seismic Bass
05:30 - String Masheen - playing with various filters
08:08 -Tangerine State - arpeggiator, filter resonance
10:35 - Rippler - LFO experiments
12:09 - Notta Delay - more arpeggiator goodness
14:07 - Rossum8or - haunted Wurlitzer vibes?
15:50 - StrawBent - an analog benediction of sorts"



This one was spotted and sent in via Soviet Space Child.
