Description : The Arturia OB-Xa V synthesizer faithfully recreates the rich sound of the Oberheim OB-Xa. An instrument that has long been missing from the French company’s collection.
The Oberheim OB-Xa analog polyphonic synthesizer is renowned in the music industry for its fat and tactile sound. While Behringer is only working on a hardware clone of the device, and Tom Oberheim is thinking about the development of the brand returned to ownership, the French Arturia has turned OB-Xa into a virtual instrument. The Arturia OB-Xa V synthesizer offers faithful reproduction of the sound of the original and is part of the Arturia V Collection plug-in line.
As the developers promise, the virtual synthesizer is completely ready to create biting bass, chic spatial pads and juicy electronic brass parts. The company notes that the OB-Xa V is enhanced with a number of features that were not in the original. So the synthesizer received the Stereo Spread function, built-in arpeggiator and more LFOs. In addition to this, the virtual version has acquired an effects section.
The tool comes with a large collection of presets for different styles of music. The library of presets includes dozens of pads and leads, basses, keyboards and brass, as well as other sounds. In addition, the collection includes presets from songs in which the Oberheim OB-Xa occupies a key place in the sound: for example, there are presets from Van Halen “Jump”, Prince “1999” and other famous tracks.
