Think small, play big
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.
All new sounds
The classic OB-series factory sounds that you know from countless recordings are all here. But that's just the start: Oberheim's network of world-class sound designers has created jaw-dropping new sounds just for OB-X8. And because 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.
Three in one
OB-X8 combines the three different voice architectures of Oberheim 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.
OB insiders know that its myriad 'Page 2' functions unlocked the hidden power of the original OB-8. Oberheim has included all of the classic Page 2 parameters and created new ones for 2022, giving you direct access to 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.
