Are they really working on that? If so, is there an ETA?


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.



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

But you can't make "Jump" brass preset on them. :lol:

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.

One of the best Jump brass pad I have heard was from Tone2 Saurus :hihi:
Not a fan of that whole emulation business...

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...

Well, yeah... but then you couldn't sell one synth at a time, and you'd also have to do a lot of development for a monster synth for which you can charge 150 - 200 € maybe. ;)

Developers already do that.
But most will want you to buy as many plugins as there are real synths to emulate, not just 1 swiss army knife of analog emulation (except Reaktor).
