Overview

Classic Oberheim tone in a compact package.

The Oberheim OB-X8 desktop module has everything the keyboard version has, except for the 61-note Fatar keybed and the pitch and mod levers, but don't let that stop you from experiencing all the sonic power of the Oberheim OB-X, OB-Xa and OB-8 in a footprint that's compact enough for studios of any size, and convenient enough to take out on the road.

The OB-X8 desktop module boasts an identical sound engine to the keyboard version, featuring an all-analog signal path with discrete VCOs, VCAs and filters. And with its knob-per-function sound designing experience, you'll have immediate access to virtually all the synth's parameters, allowing you to create your own unique sounds with ease and precision.

Pure Analog


The audio signal path of the OB-X8 is all analog, filled with warmth and punch. It’s the same trademark Oberheim sound that made iconic tracks like "1999" by Prince, "Jump" by Van Halen, and "Tom Sawyer" by Rush so unforgettable. And now it’s yours to enhance your own music.

All-New Sounds


The classic OB-series factory sounds that you know from countless recordings are all here. But that’s just the start: World-class sound designers have created jaw-dropping new sounds just for the OB-X8. And because the OB-X8 has a clear and easy-to-grasp set of controls, creating your own sounds is as easy as turning a few knobs and saving what you like.

The OB-X8 combines the three different voice architectures of the OB-X, OB-Xa and OB-8 into a single instrument. The individual filter types and other unique characteristics of each model have been faithfully reproduced, giving you the most authentic OB experience possible. You can even mix elements of different models to create sounds never possible with the originals. There’s never been an OB-series synth as powerful and versatile.

Page 2022


OB insiders know that the myriad of "Page 2" functions unlocked the hidden power of the original OB-8. The OB-X8 includes all of the classic Page 2 parameters and new ones for 2022, giving you direct access to more than 40 nuanced controls such as additional SEM filter modes, per-voice panning, LFO keyboard tracking, Mod delay time and envelope inversion, independent pulse width control and much more.

Features

  • 8-voice pure-analog polyphony
