Oberheim OB-X8 Polyphonic Analogue Synthesizer

The ultimate version of the legendary analogue polysynth with SEM-lineage VCOs and VCFs, bi-timbral capabilties and eight-voice polyphony.

True Oberheim Sound

The OB-X8 sounds like a classic Oberheim because it is a classic Oberheim. Its 100% analog audio path cuts through a mix like no other synth.

Pure Analog

The audio signal path of the OB-X8 is all analog, filled with warmth and punch. It’s the same trademark Oberheim sound that made iconic tracks like 1999 by Prince, Jump by Van Halen, and Tom Sawyer by Rush so unforgettable. And now it’s yours to enhance your own music.

All New Sounds

The classic OB-series factory sounds that you know from countless recordings are all here. But that’s just the start: our network of world-class sound designers have created jaw-dropping new sounds just for the OB-X. And because the OB-X8 has a clear and easy-to-grasp set of controls, creating your own sounds is as easy as turning a few knobs and saving what you like.

Three In One

The OB-X8 combines the three different voice architectures of the OB-X, OB-Xa, and OB-8 into a single instrument. The individual filter types and other unique characteristics of each model have been faithfully reproduced, giving you the most authentic OB experience possible. You can even mix elements of different models to create sounds never possible with the originals. There’s never been an OB-series synth as powerful and versatile.
