Oberheim TEO-5 Synthesizer SonicLAB Review


video upload by sonicstate

"Ad Free, Exclusive Samples and extra demo on http://patreon.com/sonicstate

SonicLab reviews the Sequential TEO-5 synthesizer. With a street price of around £1,450/$1,500, the *Oberheim TEO-5 * offers an attractive balance of price and performance. Although it has limited polyphony compared to other offerings, such as the Behringer UB-XA, it retains the authentic Oberheim essence in a conveniently smaller package."

OB-X8 - Writing a track with just one synth!


video upload by

"Patches will be available at https://www.orano.co.uk/shop or http://www.synthsounds.co.uk

Before getting the head into Explorations Volume 2, I have Spent that past couple of days familiarising myself with the OB-X8 again and also the new 2.0 Firmware features, decided the best way to road test, is write a track only using the OB-X8

This synth is way up there in my top synths of all time. Absolutely love it.

anyway, a commercial kinda track this one. was great fun putting it together.

Enjoy!

One of my favorite songs from the 80s.
Radio Ga Ga by Queen from the album The Works (1984)
Written by Roger Taylor

featured the Oberheim OB-Xa, the Oberheim Matrix-1000, the Oberheim Xk, the Yamaha Reface CP and the PPG wave 2.2 (in the original song is the bassline made with the Roland Jupiter-8 arpeggiator)

This cover song series contains my own recreations of my favourite songs from the last 50 years. The original music from which I take inspiration belong to their respective owners. I recreate tracks only for personal passion and to pay homage to these tracks.
My intention is not to create covers that sound exactly like the original (if you want to hear identical sounds, please listen the original). It's more of an inspiration with my sounds from the old synthesizers from the past and of course the great appreciation for the original performers and producers."

"The Prommer is an audio sampler and EPROM programmer that can make sample EPROMs for Oberheim and other drum machines. It also is a monophonic sample record / playback device with MIDI control. You can download a copy of the user manual here [PDF link].

This unit is in excellent condition, having been thoroughly checked out by a former Oberheim engineer (me). All buttons work reliably and the battery is still good."

Introducing GForce Oberheim OB-1


video upload by GForce Software

Playlist:
Introducing GForce Oberheim OB-1
GForce Oberheim OB-1 Mini Demos
GForce Oberheim OB-1 Walkthrough



GForce Software and Oberheim proudly unveil the Oberheim OB-1.

It’s incredible that the 1978 hardware Oberheim® OB-1 has remained under the radar for so long. The GForce Oberheim OB-1 broadens the Oberheim sound palette in ways that we believe will see it become a big favourite among techno and electro producers and underground artists, as well as composers for its character and anyone cherishing vintage analogue tones. Its rich, aggressive sound and expansive feature set make it an essential hustler.

The GForce Oberheim OB-1 delivers a sound as full and robust as the legendary Minimoog® yet as aggressive and snarling as the MS-20®. It strikes the perfect balance between these two icons, making it an incredibly versatile tool in any producer’s arsenal.

Whether you’re conjuring deep bass lines or soaring leads or looking for something a little extra special, the Oberheim OB-1 is your ultimate ally in the studio.

Join the rebellion against mundane sounds and bring balance to your music with the timeless strength of the OB-1. Let the OB-1 guide your sonic journey like a true master.

HOW WAS IT AUGMENTED?

The GForce Oberheim OB-1 emulation has been richly enhanced to bring the best of both worlds—vintage charm aligned with modern possibilities. Here are the key enhancements:

Enhanced Signal Path: The OB-1 retains the authentic, rich tones of the original while benefiting from a new waveform alongside waveshape modulation, discreet level for the oscillators, sub and noise, LFO sync & retrig, Envelope looping, discreet key tracking, cross-mod, pan spread and more.

Polyphony up to 16 Voices and Unison: Unlike the monophonic original, we’ve added polyphony and mono unison.

X-Modifier: Unlocks unparalleled creative possibilities by enabling direct modulation of most parameters, transforming your sonic landscape with ease.

High Pass Filter: This addition allows for more precise control over the frequency spectrum, enabling cleaner mixes and more intricate sound design.

Chorus, Delay, and Reverb Effects: Integrated effects expand the sonic palette, allowing for lush, atmospheric, and dynamic soundscapes.

Four Versatile Macros: These provide real-time control over key parameters, enhancing expressive performance and sound customization. Macro4 can be modulated by the sequencer. This can get very creative.

Built-in Arpeggiator and Sequencer: These tools make it easy to create dynamic rhythmic and melodic patterns, adding depth and complexity to your music. The sequencer features individual step length and probability, as well as a track dedicated to sequencing Macro4.

Advanced Patch Browser: Quickly find and customize the perfect sound from a vast preset library, streamlining the creative process.

These enhancements ensure that our Oberheim OB-1 is not just a nostalgic homage but a powerful and versatile musical instrument.

You can find additional details and demos at GForce Software.

Finding that perfect sample loop point | Prophet X Tutorial


video upload by Espen Kraft

"The challenge is as old as samplers. Finding that perfect loop point was often impossible. You could get close, but rarely perfect. Some samplers made the task easier than others.

Today I often use a program called SampleRobot to help make sample libraries for the Prophet X. That works very well for recording fresh, but if I have a sound from before, just ONE sample, and I want to stretch that out over the entire keyboard, I have to use the inbuilt sample loop functionality in the Prophet X itself, just as we had to do back in the day with the sampler we had at hand.

The challenge now is to find that perfect, or nearly perfect loop point. How do we do it?

When you stretch out a sample over the entire keyboard, the sample engine will have to stretch that sound out, altering the frequency of the sample itself. It will make higher pitched sounds end faster, while lower pitched sounds last longer. That will drastically change the timbre of the sound and many prefer that sound to a hi-fi multi sampled version of the same patch. It's all a matter of taste. The sound of a sample stretched takes us back to the 80s. Artifacts and aliasing etc. Many associate that sound with something nice and cosy.

OB-X8 - Firmware 2.0 - Binaural Mode & Poly Chain


video upload by Scott McAuley Sounds

"Patches will be available at https://www.orano.co.uk/shop or http://www.synthsounds.co.uk

So the ‪@Oberheim‬ team have let us all in for an unexpected and very exciting surprise! The newly released Firmware 2.0 has taken what was an incredible instrument to completely new levels!

Multiple Wave Shape Selection/Combinations - adding to the OB-X8's sonic capabilities!
An additional 4 Pole Bass Compensated resonant filter (which sounds amazing!)
New Doubles+ & Split+ Banks, which allow independent editing and saving of patches without the need to point them towards single sounds in the main banks!
Binaural Mode! - YES Binaural Mode!
MPE Compatable
Poly Chain for up to 4 units which would give the user 32 voices of pure OB goodness! and much more!

I invested in the OB-X8 desktop which now gives me 16 voices of incredible sound! - This video is really just to let you hear the Poly Chain & Binaural sound in action,

it's only my first day playing with this new firmware, but thought you would all love to hear how it actually sounds.

Video is completely dry, no effects, just a little bit of compression and limiting to catch any peaks.

Enjoy!

SM!"

The new 4-Pole Low Pass filter is a great addiction!

OB-6 | Northward, Possibly


video upload by hvegel

"the Oberheim, as brought to us by Tom and Dave, shifts in a near 180 from the direction of the Prophet. whereas the Prophet, feels like the hollows, mystical forests and abandoned hotels, the Oberheim, is the spellbound lighthouse, the edge of the ocean bluff, the lying wind whispering in your ear. in short, i would think to never part with either. they complete a sonic circle, that feels it mustn't be broken."

Parapolyparty - Retro Jam with DSI Pro-2 in paraphonic mode and Eurorack VCOs


video upload by thesrabbit

"Follow-up to my demo/tutorial video on setting up a paraphonic patch on the DSI Pro-2, supplementing each of its four digital oscillators with Eurorack VCOs.

I had to do something fun with it besides a basic demo, and the 2 oscillators per note/voice gave the "Filter 1" patch from the previous video some serious 80's analog poly vibes. I shortened the decay and release envelope times to make it punchier. This jam is the natural result of dialing in that sound. I bleed the 80's, haha.

Instruments:
Dave Smith Instruments Pro-2 (main synth)
Oberheim OB-X8 (octave down bass)
Roland JX-3P (sprinkles of majesty)
G-Force Software Oberheim DMX (drums)
Alesis Midiverb II (Gated reverb on snare, bloom reverb on toms)

Modules: Roland System-500 512 VCOs, 530 VCAs, 540 Envelopes, Wavefonix Dual CEM 3340, Doeper dual envelopes, Arcus Audio dual VCA, Pittsburgh Modular Giraffe, Doepfer VCA, Happy Nerding FX Aid Pro (for additional majestic reverb for the majesty)
