Obxd is based on the Oberheim OB-X. It attempts to recreate its sound and behavior, but as the original was very limited in some important ways a number of things were added or altered to the original design. If you're unfamiliar with the OB-X, its user manual can easily be found from various sources on the net. This manual will make no attempt to explain basic synth programming or the operation of the OB-X, but will discuss modifications from the basic design and in some cases their ramifications.

The Obxd was designed to sound as good and as rich as the original. It implements micro random detuning which is a big part of that sound. However, it was not designed as a self-contained completely independent soft-synth. It needs to be contained within a VST framework where things like transposition, automation, layering, arpeggiation, etc., are available. Also, like many synths of the OB-X's generation, the Obxd has no internal effects so its sounds and textures can be greatly enhanced by the use of additional processing like chorus, reverb, delay, etc.

From the manual:

"Thanks to 2DaT who created this little marvel and to Layzer who is the primary designer of its GUI. But we would be remiss not to thank all the members of KVR who participated in the Obxd forum thread! While the heart and soul of its design and development is all 2DaT, much discussion and debate went into it's graphic layout and the implementation of some of its features."

"So thanks to all who participated in its creation and also to the various people who stepped up to create excellent free patches for the Obxd."

An important information which is desperately lacking in this page:

OBXD works also perfectly well on OS X

I'm setting up a new DAW computer (Win10) and i can't remember *where* to install the OBXD preset banks. Also can't remeber how to access the presets from the OBXD UI.

Sorry for silly noob questions, but haven't been able to find where i learned this info in the first place.

There is no 'set' place to install the presets.... just install them in a folder of your choice (I put them in a folder called 'OBXD Patches' that gets backed up nightly so they don't get lost), then after loading an instance of OBXD in your DAW, go to the VST2 drop-down menu and choose "Load Bank..." or "Load Patch...". Navigate to the folder where you installed the patch banks or patches, choose the bank you want, and it will load. The next time you go to the "Load Bank..." menu, it will default to the last folder you opened. Remember to Unzip/extract all your banks.

This software to be perfect just need an interface to access the FXB and FXP.
