"Michael Whalen is a composer, producer, recording artist, and Cherry Audio supporter who has created vibrant music spanning various genres. He has produced 44 solo albums and won numerous awards for his film, television, and advertising work, including two Emmy® Awards, ten Clio Awards, a BMI Award, and four Global Music Awards. Cherry Audio is thrilled to have Michael introduce the new Wurlybird 140B, our first sample-based electro-acoustic virtual instrument.

Read our new interview where we catch-up with Michael on his latest release, Watercolor Sky, and get his thoughts on Wurlybird and more:

Michael's latest release, 'Watercolor Sky,' celebrates his love for Windham Hill Records, the independent record label in the 1980s and 1990s that practically created its own genre. Watercolor Sky is nine tracks of contemporary instrumental music from the prolific composer, and features a dream team of musical talent including Mark Isham, Michael Manring, Nancy Rumbel, Will Ackerman, and Charlie Bisharat. The album is available now from Bandcamp and your favorite streaming services at

Cherry Audio's Wurlybird 140B is modeled after the rare and revered 1964 Wurlitzer 140B electronic piano. Wurlybird 140B promises unparalleled sound quality and authenticity for musicians and producers alike. Now available at the astonishingly affordable price of only $39, this plugin makes its dynamic vibe accessible to all.

Cherry Audio Wurlybird 140B - a detailed demo and tutorial

video upload by CatSynth TV

"We take a detailed look at the features and presets in the new Wurlybird 140B from Cherry Audio, a recreation of what some consider the best of the Wurlitzer electric pianos, the model 140B. These are far more elusive than the better known 200 series, but our friends at Cherry Audio were able locate one for extensive sampling and modeling for this version, which sounds great and (as an electric piano enthusiast) is a lot of fun to play."

How to get a "liquid filter" sound on the Frap Tools Cunsa

video upload by Frap Tools

"Music is full of weird adjectives like 'warm', 'gritty', "growly', and so on. However, concerning filters, one of the most frequent is 'liquid'. What it means is very subjective, but we tried to figure it out in this video!

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.


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.
