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.
