Punchy Synth Icon Released in December 1980, the OB-Xa made a massive statement in the world of analog synths. Following the release of accessible digital synthesizers, Oberheim brought in added polyphony, big sound, and impressive power to show the world what synth greatness really means, and it became an instant rival to its main competitor, Sequential Circuits’ Prophet 5.
OB-Xa is a hugely iconic synth behind Van Halen’s hit ‘Jump’ and albums by Prince, Queen, Bon Jovi, Billy Idol, Chaka Khan, The Police, and more. Its dangerous, all-embracing sound is perfect for expressing the epic, heart-crushing drama of life. It’s used today by the likes of Flume, Chrome Sparks, Calvin Harris, and Venetian Snares, entering a new dimension of electronic music. Our faithful reproduction of OB-Xa with extra inspiration taken from the OB-X and OB-8 for the most satisfying result will be perfect for keyboardists and synth programmers.
It’s your turn to break free and let the world hear your rebel yell.
Sonic alchemy for the 21st century OB-Xa was a hugely sought-after synth in its own time. With our carefully thought out features implemented, we made it even more intelligent, intuitive, and inspiring to use.
Stereo spread The pioneering stereo spread feature lets your ears immerse into sound movement.
Arpeggiator The arpeggiator generates expressive patterns and melodies to enhance your musical rhythms.
LFO More flexibility of the LFO allows in-depth sound design capabilities and brings movement and excitement to the sound.
Cross modulation The oscillators’ continuous cross modulation allows one oscillator to modulate the other one. This leads to frequency modulation, resulting in a nice, metallic sound. It’s parallel to the 0 to 1 switch on the original OB-X hardware.
Oscillator’s mix Oscillators’ mix in the filter section lets you take your sound sources and craft them to achieve the end result you desire.
Re-enter the synth universe at its prime and go wild with previously impossible synthesizer technology It’s easy to get lost in endless inspiration without an organizing system to ground it – and that’s why our sound libraries offer a super easy system of categories and tags.
