discoDSP has announced an update to the OB-Xd software synthesizer based on the analog polyphonic synth OB-X by Oberheim.
It attempts to recreate its sound and behavior, but as the original was very limited in some important ways a number of things were added or altered to the original design. OB-Xd was designed to sound as good and as rich as the original. It implements micro random detuning which is a big part of that sound.
Changes in OB-Xd v2.0
- 7x faster GUI controls.
- Linux build.
- Standalone app.
- Signed and notarized installers.
- Updated JUCE framework to 5.4.7 for better stability and compatibility.
- Updated Banks with 2.0 compatibility.
- Ilkka Rosma Dark Theme.
- MacOS Catalina support.
- MIDI CC learn.
- MIDI CC support.
- Parameter refactor.
- XML based skinning and HiDPI (Retina) ready GUI themes.
OB-Xd for Windows, Mac and Linux (VST/VST3/AU/Standalone) is available as a free download with an optional donation of $49 USD.
