video uploads by Blue River Sounds

Blue River Sounds was founded by ex-Sequential, and current Groove Synthesis founding partner, Mark Wilcox.

Note there are three videos in the player above. You can use the player controls to flip between them.
The third video, "OB X8 Doubles," features layered sounds.


"Inspiring and useful sounds for the Oberheim OB-X8. Leads, basses, pads, complex textures, and much more. Available for purchase at"

"No effects were used in the recording of these sounds. They are organic and full of movement right out of the box and don't rely on FX to make them sound great.

Special thanks to our friend Nick Semrad for his excellent playing in these demos."

OB X8 Doubles - 3rd Video
"64 Doubles presets for the Oberheim OB-X8. These are unique, impactful, and complex Oberheim textures that make great use of Page 2 features and aftertouch to add movement and stereo depth.

This set requires Blue River Sounds OB-X8 Sound Set 1 and Sound Set 2. When you purchase this Doubles set, OB-X8 Sound Set 1 and Sound Set 2 are included."

"Blue River Sounds has 3 new sound sets for the Oberheim OB-X8 — 2 sets of 64 Singles, and 1 set of Doubles that references the Singles. Blue River Sounds was founded by Mark Wilcox, a key player at Dave Smith Instruments/ Sequential for nearly a decade. He also helped bring back Oberheim in 2022 and is co-designer of the 3rd Wave Advanced Wavetable synth at Groove Synthesis."

And via Blue River's about page:

"Blue River Sounds was founded by Mark Wilcox, a California-based sound and instrument designer whose presets have been featured in every Sequential synthesizer since 2014.

His multi-decade career in music tech includes nearly 10 years at Sequential. His contributions to their product designs and factory sound sets have been numerous.

Mark is also a founding partner of Groove Synthesis and co-designer of the critically-acclaimed 3rd Wave Advanced Wavetable Synth. He did much of the sound design for that synth, as well."
