Applying their expert sound engineering to recreating and updating an iconic synth, Arturia now offer an authentic software with soundscapes previously unexplored. Ideal for innovative musicians, synth programmers, and keyboardists who appreciate a fat, aggressive sound. Its versatility creates gratifying results in many distinct styles of music production, making it a valuable asset for producers and creators across multiple genres.

OB-Xa made music history on albums released by Prince, Billy Idol, Chaka Khan, and Bon Jovi, and is most recognizable for appearing on Van Halen's biggest hit, 'Jump'. Contemporary musicians by the likes of Flume, Chrome Sparks, Calvin Harris, and Venetian Snares have also incorporated its energetic potential to enter a new musical dimension.

Love it.

Always wanted to have that fat and famous sound and now I can. The added modulation and effects are amazing and really easy to use for sound design. The added stereo mode is also a great feature.
