All Oberheim sounds

The return of the Oberheim legends in one synthesizer

Published 6:54 pm on Monday 16th May 2022 by Beat Magazine

The keyboard relies on a Fatar keyboard with 61 keys over 5 octaves. The velocity-sensitive keyboard is also equipped with aftertouch. Thanks to the bi-timbral ability to play two sounds simultaneously, it is possible to either double the sounds or split them on the keyboard. More liveliness in the sound is brought by the pitch and modulation levers. There is also an arpeggiator on board. There are over 400 patches to discover as sounds, including the complete libraries of the OB-X, OB-SX, OB-Xa and OB-8. More than 600 memory locations are available for your own creations.

Price and availability

The OB-X8 will be available in June 2022 at a retail price of 5699 euros.
