Arturia Emulates Oberheim's Mighty OB-Xa

OB-Xa V is a reproduction of OB-Xa with extra inspiration from the OB-X and OB-8      20/05/20

Arturia has released OB-Xa V which they say takes the immense analog power of the fat, aggressive sounding OB-Xa from the 80s charts to the modern era. They say that, faithful to the sound of the original and supercharged with new features, OB-Xa V will take you for a wild sonic ride.

A spokesperson told us, "Longing to sound like the biggest icons of the 80s? Jump into the dream world of the future by activating the brand new features of the evolved synth. Immerse yourself in this quirky synth and whip up new songs with the fat, creamy sounds that made it famous. Not only will you feel the original sound of punchy bass, thick analog pads and drones, and cyclical effects at your fingertips, you'll also have access to brand new features that will bring out this iconic sound deeper than ever. OB-Xa V is here to let you spin that audio hurricane! OB-Xa V has been one of our most requested synths, so we took extra care to make it more satisfying than you'd ever expect. That's right - we went back to the future!"
