NOTE: The Mac VST3 package on the demo version site onyl works for the demo version.
Full version equivalent for the full version in the login area.
The Windows and Mac AU packages however apply to both demo version and licensed full version.

The available alternative skins are:

"Blue":
This is the original OP-X blue used by OP-X since 2006.
Note that the original Oberheim OB-X wasn't blue but grey!
The special blue was invited by SonicProjects.

"Dark":
This is a dark grey-blue for people who don't like bright interfaces.

The plugin must be installed already to apply a new skin.
The skin installer only exchanges the graphics.

A later version of the plugin itself may include the skin color options directly in the GUI-switcher and the color default to blue then.

Sonic Projects OP-X Pro-II - Sound Bank '79


video upload by Polydata

"Drawing from the earliest days of polyphonic synthesizers, Sound Bank ‘79 for the Sonic Projects OP-X Pro-II plug-in finds its inspiration in synthesizer music found in documentaries and library music from the late 70’s and early 80’s.

A bank comprising 30 patches for instant inspiration. The goal was to squeeze as much vintage analog juice out of this plug-in as possible, primarily working within the constraints of the original Oberheim OB-X analog poly synth. This plug-in sounds SO GOOD. There are some awesome plug-ins out there that are each great in their own way... this one really has a remarkable authenticity and realness to the sound that is incredible.

Sound Bank '79 is a series of vintage tones for different synths and plug-ins, so check out my other releases. Recorded completely dry with no external effects or processing.

After payment, you will receive the file in your email within 24 hours.

Screenshot from the video.
Two pics from Wikipedia:

"The GX-1 served as a test bed for the development of the Yamaha CS-80 polyphonic synthesizer, which turned out much smaller and more portable (although still considered mighty hefty compared to contemporary synthesizers for live performance)."
