Don't let this one slip into obscurity.
It looks like one of a thousand early-2000's Synthedit VA VSTs, but the sound quality will take you aback. Use your ears. It's basic, but it's a fun little toy with serious output.
I still pull it out here and there when I'm bored of my typical bread-and-butters but still want a great sound.Read more

Now Oberon belongs to the former group, being a very good sounding synth.
It has 2 oscillators, and the filters are really quite good actually, making this little beats sounding very very analogical. Its sound reminds me of the best analogical synths, it seems it's inspired by the Oberheim, but I can't judge that. It just sounds good.
When you browse the presets you'll think it's a quite limited synth, very far from Synth 1 or Polyblit for example. But when you play with it you'll realise of its full potential. You can get really good electronic basses,and truly analogical pads. It's much more than what it appears at simple sight.
Its interface is simple and clear: the oscillators, envelope, filters...are very clearly separated and visible. and the GUI is not spectacular but very decent though, with those orange over black.
It has never crashed in my computer, and it uses very little cpu. that, together with its good sound, has made me use it more often every day.
100% recommendedRead more

anyway, i really enjoy it. simple, smooth and pleasant. easy to program, good docs including midi ccs.
i don't think the presets show off it's abilities, but then i usually use it for very smooth sub basses with a bit of character. it also does quite decent punchy leads and such, but for me it's a bass synth of great standing.
superb VFM.Read more
