Oberheim OB-X8 Desktop Analogue Synth Module Overview

The compact and powerful Oberheim OB-X8 Desktop Analogue Synth Module is designed for synthesists seeking the ultimate in portable analogue synthesis, condensing iconic Oberheim sound, modern enhancements and unparalleled sonic possibilities in a sleek, easily transportable form factor.

The Oberheim OB-X8 Desktop Analogue Synth Module brings the iconic Oberheim sound to a new generation of musicians in a portable and powerful package that retains the knob-per-function control of the OB-X8 keyboard. The desktop module gives you the freedom to pair it with any controller of your choosing, from the largest 88-key MIDI keyboard to the most compact sequencer. You can even sequence and automate the OB-X8 module from your DAW via the USB port.

Experience the pure sonic muscle of the iconic OB-X, OB-Xa and OB-8 synthesizers in a format that fits comfortably in any creative space and is easily transportable for live performances. As well as authentically capturing the distinctive character of vintage Oberheims, the OB-X8 allows you to take them in a new direction with its host of additional sound design options.

Whether you’re using SEM filters on a classic OB-X patch or manipulating the filter with velocity, the OB-X8 module lets you do it all and much more.

All-Analogue Signal Path

Despite its smaller footprint, the OB-X8 desktop module features the same all-analogue signal path as its keyboard counterpart. With discrete VCOs, VCAs and filters, you can effortlessly craft unique sounds using the knob-per-function design, putting every parameter at your fingertips.

Classic Oberheim Sound, Modern Enhancements

The Oberheim OB-X8 desktop module delivers the warmth and punch that characterised legendary tracks by Prince, Van Halen, Rush and countless other artists. It includes classic OB-series factory sounds alongside new presets designed by world-class sound designers. The OB-X8’s user-friendly controls make creating your own signature sounds a breeze.

A Triumvirate of Iconic Synths

The Oberheim OB-X8 combines the distinct voice architectures of the OB-X, OB-Xa and OB-8 into a single, versatile instrument. Faithfully reproducing each model’s unique filter types and characteristics, the OB-X8 allows you to mix elements from different models to create never-before-heard sounds.

Unlock Hidden Power with Page 2022

The OB-X8 includes all the classic Page 2 parameters alongside new ones for 2022, giving you direct access to over 40 nuanced controls. These controls include additional SEM filter modes, per-voice panning, LFO keyboard tracking, Mod delay time and envelope inversion, among others.

Feature-Packed and Ready for Action

The OB-X8 desktop module boasts 8-voice pure-analogue polyphony, bi-timbral capabilities and over 600 user-programmable presets. The high-resolution OLED display makes patch management and accessing advanced features effortless. With an array of connectivity options, including MIDI In, Out, Thru and USB, the OB-X8 is ready to integrate seamlessly into any studio or live setup.

A Synth Pioneer Returns

Oberheim’s innovative vision in the '70s and '80s helped spark the electronic music revolution. Today, the company continues to honour Tom Oberheim’s legacy by delivering the finest-sounding analogue synthesizers to a new generation of musicians and artists.
