vintage synth demo by RetroSound
Oberheim OB-Xa 8-Voice Analog Synthesizer from the year 1980.
some self-made and factory classic OB-Xa sounds (pads, brass, bass, sync-sounds and more)
The Oberheim OB-Xa is one of the greatest analog poly-synths ever. A classic! Van Halen`s powerfull Jump and 1984 Intro sound is the OB-Xa.
The sound character of the curtis chip based OB-Xa is very different to the early discrete and SEM based OB-X. The sound is harder and not so lush. Check my OB-X demo vids! But the OB-Xa sound is more raw, organic and warmer as the the later OB-8. The OB-Xa was available with 4, 6 or 8 voice cards.
Used by: Van Halen, Depeche Mode, Thompson Twins, Gary Numan, Rush, Prince, Vangelis, New Order and much more
