discoDSP has released version 1.8 of the OB-Xd software synthesizer for iOS.
Based on the Oberheim OB-X, the OB-Xd synth attempts to recreate its sound and behavior with some additions and alterations to the original design.
OB-Xd was designed to sound as good and as rich as the original. It implements micro random detuning. Also, like many synths of the OB-X’s generation, the OB-Xd has no internal effects so its sounds and textures can be greatly enhanced by the use of additional processing like chorus, reverb, delay, etc..
Changes in OB-Xd v1.8
- Added switchable MIDI keyboard on GUI.
- Added MIDI CC support.
- New Vivolator bank.
- New Blank Canvas Bank.
- New Luke’s Soundhouse 80s & Synthwave bank.
- New icon.
- Fixed issues with OB-Xd Desktop FXB Banks import.
The OB-Xd synth for iOS/AUv3 is available for purchase at the App Store, priced $4.99 USD.
