Aly James has announced the release of OB-Xtreme, a synthesizer instrument based on the Oberheim OB-X.

Aly James Lab OB-Xtreme

What happens when you take 8 separate monophonic synths and use them togheter? Huge analog sound! Mainly caused by the slight imperfections between each voice card fine tuning.

This was a classic analog synthesizer available in many voice configurations, featuring a SEM Filter with its own ADSR, a VCA with ADSR, a flexible LFO and others goodies, this synth has been used by Herbie Hancock, Prince, Chick Corea, Cirrus, Depeche Mode, Queen, Supertramp, Kenny Kirkland, Jean-Michel Jarre, Van Halen, Tangerine Dream, Rush, Simple Minds, Chicago, Styx, Ultravox and dozens more!

OB-XTREME started out as a simple goto VST for that classic OB Brass sound stripped down to the minimum, then I thought about how I could bring more “warm” into a digital VA synth and what features I could add to the original design.

So, based on an original OB-X architecture, I have crafted some controllable diode clipping stage before and after the filter, which really bring some body and harmonics for a beffy result, especially in conjunction with the VCF…It can be soft and warm or scream in a good way. From there I extended the concept.

Contrary to all my others VSTis, OB-Xtreme is not an exact recreation of an OB-X, it is rather an “closely inspired by” approach, stripped down to the minimum for easy sound design of OB Brass, Pads, Leads, FX and Percussions. However some extended features like an optional FAT mode and Multiple DAW outputs per voice opens up to experimentation like different FX threatment per voice…

The plug-in is available for Windows (VST) as donationware with a minimum donation of 15 EUR.
