If any of you were wondering what was happening with the Behringer OB-Xa clone, Uli Behringer has posted an update on the UB-Xa development on the Gearslutz forum along with the above rendering and a couple of circuit diagrams…
When I announced the project some time ago, I mentioned that it would take at least a year as it is a "labor of love" and our Midas engineer would do this as a side project since their main priorities are with digital mixing consoles.
Because of their high workload, the development of the UB-Xa had unfortunately stalled for quite some time.
Good news is that the team is working on it again and we have just finished all schematics and the mechanical design while the team is now focusing on the board layout and firmware.
This is a major job and don't expect anything soon, however we are confident that we will deliver this project as promised and hopefully at a price which will make everyone happy.
In order to maintain the integrity of the original sound design, we've been using 3340 and 3320 VCO's and VCF's but replaced the outdated digital section with very powerful Arm Processors.
Thanks for your patience.
