it's the second time I see you use the word "we", speaking as if you was some collective and not just one guy. I told you, there is no "we". you may not talk for other people. "you don't want, you don't need something" - it's just you. you don't want Minimoog iOS app ported to desktop, you don't want P-600 synth from Synapse Audio... you talk as if the developers were working for you, making only the synthesizers you want. and it's not the case, as we all know. so hold your horses, will ya, and cut the "we" word. there is no "we".

First: You need to calm down.
Second: It was ME who wrote that, not the guy you are addressing to (chk071). But feel free to address this to me.
Third: There may always be a WE, since in a vast auditory like this it's unlikely that no one would agree with me. But that's my opinion, of course. Anyway, I think I can use the pronoun WE, as it is a common way to address this kind of thinking (its called generalization). Of course, generalizations are sometimes dangerous, and I may be wrong in my statement. It's up to you to prove I'm wrong in my generalization.

Yes, both a P600 and an OB-Xa are in the works. A MemoryMoog might happen at some point in the future too, but development hasn't started on that one.

All three of those, I'm not interested.

But more faithful versions of these:

ARP2600
CS-80
OB-X
Crumar Performer
Farfisa Polychrome
Oberheim OB-8
Andromeda
Fender Chroma Polaris
Moog Taurus MKI
EMS Synthi-AKS
FS1R
KORG MINIPOPS 7
A RSF Polykobol II that sounds like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H247bhAZOS4

Wait, you don't want the OB-Xa, but you want the OB-8? :dog: I admit that the OB-8 may have a few more parameters, but doesn't make that much difference. That said, I also see no reason to not take the extra step, and recreate the OB-8 together with the OB-Xa, since they are so similar.

I second you regarding the Alesis Andromeda A6, the Fender Chroma and/or Polaris, and the Yamaha FS1R.

The Synthi-AKS and the RSF PolyKobol have been done quite well by Xils-Lab.

Not well enough for me. If a Reaktor ensemble gets me to immediately OH yes, yeS, YES THAT'S IT!, and not a full fledged product, there's something wrong.

If the Obies can be combined, all for it. ;)

Same here, pretty dull synths, i'd prefer an accurate emu of the Polivoks or CS-15. 8)

Shame they don't emulate the OB-X. I could be wrong, but... seems like it actually sounds quite a bit warmer, and more defined than the OB-Xa?

I remember there was a discussion about that a while ago, and, i think the OB-Xa used the same filter chip as the Prohet 5 or something, while the OB-X had a "typical" Oberheim filter.

VSE:

"The OB-X was very similar to the OB-Xa except that its voices could not be split or layered and, more significantly, the OB-X had a lowpass-only discrete SEM 12dB/oct state variable filter, which had a great and classic Oberheim sound. The OB-Xa changed that in an attempt to economize manufacturing and increase stability by switching to CEM3320 Curtis chips for its filters. The Xa offered two switchable filter modes: 12 dB/oct (2-pole) or 24 dB/oct (4-pole). This hardware change resulted in a more agressive sound, not quite as creamy as the OBX original, but what still became a "bread and butter" sound of the Oberheim line".

I'm sure there are some who prefer the OB-X to the OB-Xa and vice versa........ :shrug:

OB-Xa is far from dull. But yes, OB-X was the best out of the three, sound-wise. Discrete voiceboards FTW.

Sure. I'm happy about any Oberheim emu.

I suppose it shouldn't be a big hassle to make an OB-X and OB-Xa e-mu all in one. Just have two filter types and X-mod for both. Is there anything else? It would be interesting to be able to use X-mod with OB-Xa filters... ;)

The difference was the filter among other things, right?
That gave me an idea for a new synth: a modular synth where one can combine famous, precisely modulated filters, oscillators, envelope generators etc. I.e. not synths or synth modules like in Diva. But really the components as such. That should automatically allow the emulation of a whole range of synths, which were also based on those components.

Question is if they have both synths available for A/B comparison...
