Note that this new version (1.3) changed the name of the plugin from OBXd to OB-Xd, so when loaded into a DAW, none of your original presets appear and need to be manually moved into the new plugin's preset folder.


I find the rev 1.3 stock "skin" the light grey with white and grey lettering is hard to read, how do you change the "skin" in the OSX version?

I've been playing with the 1.3 Audio Units version and it sounds to me that the envelope shapes are very different from the previous release, and much less like an Oberheim.. anyone have any insights to this?

Also the controller assignments are still not saved in the AU version, which means they need to be programmed each time you instanciate the plugin.

I'm going back to the old "Obxd" version... :(

AFAIK, the Layzer version has the old code.

Nice George. The most urgent feature request, at least to me: some kind of preset manager, I guess.

Yep, pending ;) I think we can implement a bank loader using right click or a button somewhere.
