SonicProjects explains:

The same as its predecessors did since 2006 the synth engine of OP-X PRO-3 exactly clones the inner workings of real voltage controlled polyphonic analog synths of the late 70s and 80s in every tiny detail which includes fully independent separate tunable voices featuring tuning trimpots with a linked voice allocation and autotune unit.

OP-X PRO-3 includes the whole former OP-X PRO-II banks library which has grown over 18 years. OP-X PRO-3 is directly compatible to .opxpreset patches. For own custom .opxbank banks it offers an import function.
