Designers talk: OB-X8, and how it came to be.

video upload by Oberheim Official

"Since it was introduced in May 2022, industry acclaim has been heaped upon OB-X8 as one of the most authentic recreations of a vintage synth ever engineered.

But what thought process is behind the million design decisions involved in a vintage recreation project like this? In this roundtable style discussion, Tom Oberheim (Founder, Oberheim Electronics), Marcus Ryle (OB-X8 Co-Designer, Oberheim Engineer 1980 - 85), Tony Karavidas (Lead Hardware Engineer Sequential/Oberheim) and the late, great Dave Smith (Founder, Sequential and OB-X8 co-designer), talk through trade-offs, design philosophies, and the overall approach that allowed them to produce this amazing instrument.

0:31 What is the OB-X8?
3:44 What gave each OB synth its sound?
6:12 How do you match to a vintage synth?
8:25 Why are Page 2 features important?
9:58 How does OB-X8 differ from the originals?
12:48 What's coming from Oberheim in the future?"

Synth excerpt from Always Rivalled (@No Man's Island)

video upload by Rune Flobakk

"Small excerpt from a new song, Always Rivalled, I am performing with my band @No Man's Island . Wanted to test out my recently acquired LinnDrum, and perform a multitrack one-take by routing the individual outs from the drum machine through a (also recently acquired) @Erica Synths Matrix Mixer, in order to flexibly assign drums to their own input channels. The polysynth parts are played on an Oberheim Matrix-12, and the bass on a John Bowen Solaris. All sounds and effects is generated 'outside the box' (not using any plugins), and only some mixing levelling and EQ is done post-recording.

The pink pedal you get a glimpse of in the beginning is a @Poly Effects Beebo, which I also use for live playing. Recording is done with an Allen & Heath Qu-16 into Logic on Mac.

The full song also includes vocals, guitars, electric bass, and drums."

Oberheim OB-Xa w/ mLab Midi - Vintage 8 Voice Polyphonic Analog Synthesizer

via this auction, also on eBay

Additional Analog U.S Listings,
also on eBay

"This one is in excellent cosmetic condition and working 100%. It has just been professionally serviced and with some restoration. As the title says, this one has the mLab Midi box plus the newer, Techsmechs TM-8 Keyboard. This keyboard is a huge improvement compared to the original. Please check the Midisoft.De website for the midi specifications. This midi kit is much less invasive than other kits as you do not need to add any midi ports/holes to the unit. It plugs directly into the "computer interface" on the back of the OB-Xa."

1 Minute EDM Track? ;-)

video upload by John L Rice

"I was mainly just experimenting with my new Klavis Quadigy (quad programmable envelope generator) in my eurorack modular briefcase and this eventually grew out of it. It’s really just a 4 step sequence from a Xaoc Devices Tirana but heavily processed to turn it into four voices with some variety using a Doepfer A-149-4, Synth Tech E102, and Strymon Magneto, etc. Drums are from my new Squarp Instruments Rample module along with helper modules Rebel Technology Stoicheia and Ladin Derivator. Master clock is the Erica Synths Black VC Clock v2 and divider is the 2hp Div."

Vintage Drumfire DF-500 Drum Synthesizer w/ Original Box & Accessories

via this auction

"If your on the hunt for a vintage analaog drum module, you will not find anything as gritty and unique as the Drumfire DF-500.

It has been used by Noise and electronic music greats like Black Dice and Mike Vainio from Pan Sonic.

Its capable of making disgusting bass sounds, gritty hihats, noise snares and piercing rim clicks.

This unit is in great condition with a few minor scratches, and works like a dream. Comes with the original box and really cool multi-colored trigger pads (there’s even one that looks like a hotel call bell!)"

White Model Roland MKS-7 Super Quartet

via this auction, also on Reverb

Pic of the inside below.

"MKS7 with NEW Voice chips. All 6 voices have been professionally replaced. Check the pic for the proof.

It sounds wonderful, has some minor scratches on the front panel. Check photos. Comes with rack ears.

It's set to US AC.

One of the greatest advantage of MKS7 is the complete Juno 107 compatibility with velocity control, where you have all 6 voices playing like Juno and responding to Juno Editors such as for PC and Mac. To trigger this mode please follow the instruction below.

Plus you have punchy TR707 drums sounds.

The MKS-7 has a Whole Mode. The Melody and Chord sections are combined and act as a six voice synthesizer. In this mode there is no sound from the Melody Section. To turn on the Whole Mode, use the following procedure:

1. Press the MIDI CH button so the RHYTHM, BASS, CHORD and MELODY buttons are flashing.

2. While holding the CHORD button, press the MELODY button.
NOTE: The CHORD and MELODY indicators under the LED display should now both be lit

3. Press the MIDI CH button to exit."

8-bit signal processing for eurorack - Drezno & Lipsk / Leibniz subsystem / Xaoc devices

video upload by Monotrail Tech Talk

"The Leibniz subsystem from Xaoc devices is a line-up of modules that work with 8-bit conversion. It’s a unique concept that allows for a lot of interesting signal manipulation and generation. In this video I explain what 8 bit is, and how it’s implemented in this line-up, using Drezno and Lipsk. Of course, there are multiple chapters with patch ideas and audio demos as well.
