Obsession brings the power of a great polyphonic vintage synthesizer to your fingertips. It combines the astute modeling of voltage-controlled oscillators (VCOs), voltage-controlled filter (VCF) and voltage-controlled amplifier (VCA) with a comprehensive individual voice control that has never been done before in this detail.

Link to the product page:
https://www.synapse-audio.com/obsession.html

Key features:
  • Two part engine with 8 or 16 voice boards
  • Single/Dual/Split modes
  • High-quality effect block with Delay, Reverb and Chorus
  • Precise control of many sound parameters per voice board
  • Stepped LFO with freehand drawing for rhythmic sequences
  • Scalable GUI, Retina-ready
  • Support for Multidimensional Polyphonic Expression (MPE)
  • 420 patches by leading sound designers
NKS Approved

Obsession is NKS-ready. Its factory library is automatically integrated into Maschine, Komplete Kontrol etc., with all presets properly tagged and a custom parameter map.

Congrats. I have no doubt it will do well. All your stuff is great.

So ultimately, the question for me comes down to this because I really don't need another synth. Dune 3 alone is off the charts amazing and I use it almost all the time.

Can I make a decent return on a library if I get this and really work hard on putting a quality library together? I didn't think Legend would sell at all and I was dead wrong. Is this the same case scenario? Obviously, nobody can answer that.

And if I do decide to make a library, do I concentrate on using the features not in the original and make sounds the original couldn't make? Will that be more appealing, given I'm sure the factory library will have the usual bread and butter stuff, or will I be alienating the people who want yet another "Jump" or "Tom Sawyer" patch?

There are too many variables to this whole situation. And ultimately, like I said, I just don't need another synth. Though a quality Oberheim, something I don't have, would be kind of nice.

Anyway, all stuff that I have to wrestle with. If nothing else, I will download the demo and see what I think of it.

Congrats again Richard. You're a class act.

Will there be a possibility to reorder the effect section in future updates?

Any chance there will be some discount offer sent for owners of your other stuff (Legend VST & RE, Dune 2/3, Synapse Collection RE)? Or should I just go get it now? :hihi:

Oh, and is there an RE planned? :pray:

Otherwise it sounds AWESOME!!! :love: :clap:

$99 is a stellar price for this. For me, in the no brainer category for a such a really well done Oberheim Emulation as this is.

The Rack Extension is planned for mid-July, a few things related to the GUI must be re-arranged for reasons specific to the RE format. The core is working in Reason already and has been ever since we started developing the plugin. Similar to The Legend, we use our cross-platform VST/AU/AAX/RE framework here. This is the reason btw why the GUI has similar proportions like The Legend does.
