Sounds Of The New Oberheim OB-X8

Sound designer Paul Schilling shared this demo of some of his patches for the new Oberheim OB-X8 synthesizer.

Schilling was one of the sound designers that created patches for the new OB-X8.

This demo features a wide range of sounds, including recreations of a lot of iconic Oberheim sounds, along with with new sounds that showcase various aspects of the new synths.

Oberheim officially introduced the OB-X8 at Superbooth 2022. The OB-X8 is a new synth that they say combines the three different voice architectures of the classic OB-X, OB-Xa, and OB-8 synths into a single instrument. As a result, the Oberheim OB-X8 is more than a reissue, it’s a new Oberheim design that offers broader synthesis options and expressive capabilities than its predecessors.
