I highly recommend locking effects off (turn off effects and then right-click to choose Lock). Then take another tour of the presets to find some raw gems - like a whole new set of presets. This really shows off the beautiful analog sounds of this. Many of the presets lose their vintage vibe with all the Air Band, reverb, etc.
Nice! There's some "raw signature" in early synth music, stuff from the 70s, I'm very interested in. I think Oberhausen will help me on this, but I never thought of locking off the FX. Thanks!

Yes, this sounds so good raw. The effects are anyway not that useful if doing vintage stuff. I mean they're OK, but I have much better plugins. Compared to other synths they're quite limited here.

While I get the Oberheim-Oberhausen thingy, I would not name my product after one of Germany's most run-down and indebted cities :roll:

The name is well suited for that retro rusty worn out sound with a lot of imperfect aka analog character... :borg:

I'm sure it sounds good but they should not have priced it so high

Things could be worse. It could be called bx_ruhrgebiet. :o

YMMV, but, I found it's a great sounding synth when I demo'd it. It's pretty heavy on CPU though. Might not be such a big deal if you have a powerful CPU though.

Yeah, sounds sweet even on YT videos! :o

I'm gonna demo it and LION today, as the offer runs until 29th (any plugin for $29+VAT).

The filter sounds great. Very creamy, and "Oberheim-ish".

I made a comparison with Diva's Uhbie filter, and definitely preferred the one in Oberhausen.

Demoing this now and I'm shocked at how many of the presets send the correlation meter deep into the red. The very first preset called 80ies Bass and the pad called Evolving PWM are good examples of presets that completely fall apart in mono.

The TMT function appears to be buggy. I noticed on some sounds it was randomly panning some notes far left or right and needed the ol' switch-off-and-on-again treatment to fix.

Still, it sounds very nice.
