you have much more slop editing possible in OBsession than in OP-X Pro...
There's more adjustments. But what good are they if ranges are limited? Despite less options, on OP-X, it's possible to produce voice variations which Obsession can't do. EG Push the filter calibration / res in OP-X and let it cycle with an arp.
I like the Cross Mod, in OP-X, much better too.
It's exactly 8 or 16 individual voices in there. In a much easier to use UI without secret handshakes, hidden clicks and whatnot.
I'm sure you've read enough threads, by now, to know there's been alternative GUI's for several years.
but sound-wise, there is no contest. Newer algorithms win
This slightly implies that all that matters is the algo - which, of course, is not the case. OP-X was kind of a case in point for that because, for years, it covered certain aspects of polysynths better than plugins with (arguably) "more advanced" code, simply because it paid attention to stuff like voice variation.
A lot of things come down to the musical sensibilities of the dev. I rate TAL pretty highly here. Anyway, not the thread to elaborate too much, suffice to say (in terms of "Oberheim-y" sounds) I'd choose several plugins over Obsession..
