Oberheim OB-X8 Desktop Module Available Now

Synth pioneer Tom Oberheim has announced that the Oberheim OB-X8 Desktop synthesizer module is now available.

The OB-X8 desktop version condenses the sonic power of the Oberheim OB-X, OB-Xa and OB-8 into a compact desktop module. It features an identical sound engine to the keyboard version, with an all-analog signal path with discrete VCOs, VCAs, and filters.

And like the keyboard version, it features a knob-per-function interface, designed to give you immediate access to virtually all of the synth’s parameters. The Arpeggiator and Keyboard Split & Double functionality are maintained from the keyboard version.


  • 8-voice polyphonic analog synth brings the full suite of OB-X8’s sonic possibilities to a portable desktop module
  • 3 all-analog synths in one: the Oberheim OB-X, OB-Xa, and OB-8
  • 2 discrete OB-X/SEM-lineage VCOs per voice and discrete SEM-lineage VCFs deliver vintage Oberheim tone and power
  • Genuine Dave Curtis-designed filters for classic OB-Xa and OB-8 character
  • Additional SEM modes for highpass, bandpass, and notch functions
  • Vintage knob dials in voice-to-voice variability
  • Carefully modeled envelope responses for each model; components as well as interactions between components analyzed for 1:1 realism
  • Bi-timbral capability allows 2 presets to be played simultaneously
  • Up to 8-voice unison stacking
  • Programmable per-voice pan for a wide stereo spread
  • Variable triangle wave cross modulation
  • Pitch and Mod levers for note bending, vibrato, and arpeggiator access
  • Includes 400+ presets from the original 3 models as well as new ones
  • Over 600 user presets
  • OLED display shows program information and accesses advanced features
  • MIDI and USB allow for compatibility with any setup
  • Walnut end caps
