discoDSP has introduced OB-Xd 2, a free/donationware software synthesizer based on the classic Oberheim OB-X.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
“OB-Xd is based on the Oberheim OB-X. 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.”
Here’s what’s new 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.
- HiDPI (Retina) ready GUI themes.
