Oberheim OB-X8 Sound Demo – “One of the Best Sounding Synths I’ve Ever Played”

Synthesist and sound designer Paul Schilling shared this hands-on sound demo of the new Oberheim OB-X8, the new flagship analog synth from pioneering instrument designer Tom Oberheim.

In the video, Schilling demos some of his custom patches for the new OB-X8.

“It is a great honor for me to contribute factory patches to this, an absolute dream machine by Tom Oberheim and the Sequential crew,” notes Schilling, adding that the OB-X8 is “Easily one of the best sounding synthesizers I have ever played.”

Technical notes:

‘A bit ‘ of reverb and delay to a few of the patche,s but no EQ or other processing.

The unit in this video was pre-production, so it had temp knobs, not the Oberheim style knobs of the production units.
