So much awesomeness this month in the new OB-Xd. It's got a shiny new GUI that looks gorgeous, full VST3 support, and the polyphony was raised up to 32. Just take a moment to breath.... Also, lots of bug fixes, a preset browser, and more. This is a synth reborn. Special thanks to discoDSP, and the original dev 2Dat, Soshi Labs, and any other devs working on the open source repo.

Yesss... great to see OB-Xd getting some love from devs and users!! :D
Uploaded a track that uses OB-Xd as the only synth a couple of days ago on my SC ... but with drum samples :roll: Otherwise I might have reworked the track for this OSC.

Have fun everyone!! (I'm likely to pass this month though)

I believe there is no "paid version." At the bottom of the page, it says:
OB-Xd Desktop has no restrictions and is free to use. Buy to support further development, thank you!

There seem to be different versions. I got the blue one--OB-Xd 1.5. The black one pictured in the OP of this thread seems a different version (I got mine following the download link above) that is shown to have a price here: https://www.kvraudio.com/product/ob-xd- ... y-discodsp

Is that for the stand-alone version?

That's just a different skin. Try right-clicking on the plugin background and choosing discoDSP Classic from the Skins menu.

Of the analog hardware emulations I think this is one of the best. The original OB-xa was a phenomenal synth that was a legend in it's time and this is very true to it. Last OSC with this was great fun, looking forward to this one!

That's the OSC way!! One of the great aspects of of the old days ("golden years of synths???)" with analog gear back in the day was we could focus on making sounds never heard before and didn't worry about how to make a good kick. We had drummers with real kicks! Or LinnDrums or DMX machines. That's the real old school way.

Amazing! I'm currently using my spare moments to indulge in some youtube clips about the old beasts and was JUST enjoying some about the OBs, including the OB-x. Quite a mythical synth, I find, lingering humbly next to the Moog, Sequential and Roland worlds and somehow it seems to drift off again and again, oddly elusive to me for some reason. But here I am, wanting to explore those a bit more and HERE WE ARE, actually asking us to do so, hahaha! Awesome! :hyper:
Just downloaded and already it's quite a blast. Great sound, quickly to make some real treasures! :phones:

If you wanted to recreate 80's synthesizer greatest hits, this one makes it easy.
Halloween's Crockett's theme anyone? ^^
