And now, all the OB-X8 presets, synthesis features and sound editing controls are available in a compact package that fits everyone's creative space.

Pure analog

The audio signal path of 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.

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.
