Behringer today shared a video sneak preview of their upcoming Oberheim OB-Xa knockoff, the UB-Xa.
Company head Uli Behringer announced their plans for the UB-Xa in 2018, but said at the time that the engineers were going to work on it in their free time, so progress was expected to go relatively slow.
The original Oberheim OB-Xa was available with 4, 6 or 8 voices. It features 2 oscillators per voice, with a switchable 12dB/oct or 24dB/oct filter.
Details are to come on the Behringer UB-Xa, but expect it to update the original’s design with MIDI support, at a minimum. Behringer says “We promise that this synth will blow you away and exceed all your expectations.”
