OB-Xd is based on the Oberheim OB-X.

It attempts to recreate its sound and behaviours, but as the original was very limited in some important ways a number of things were added or altered to the original design.

The OB-Xd was designed to sound as good and as rich as the original. It implements micro random detuning which is a big part of that sound. better point.

This synth is nothing short from fantastic! With a good chorus (eg TAL-Chorus-LX) and a delay or reverb, this just blows me away. Many presets sound good, and some sound amazing. The basses and leads are punchy and the pads are thick and lush. Thanks for sharing this one!

This loaded easier and sounds better than the free stuff I got from Novation when setting up Ableton. Some presets would be nice to get you close so you don't have to tweak so much every time but that is not a complaint. Sounds fab! Thanks guys

This is great for sure. One of the best examples of this synth...paid or otherwise. Does anyone have a link to extra sound banks?

The OB-Xd is up there on top with the best paid softsynths in sound quality for sure. An excellent sounding freebie.

Awesome instrument. Presets are great and sound like genuine synthwave from the 80s.

There are alternative GUIs for free download. DuckDuckGo search for OBXD skins. I have a nice gray one inspired by the OB-X, looks great

When you need that Oberheim sound, load this one up and enjoy the organic analogue warmth this one gives, all of that for free.

The best free synth for Oberheimish sounds so far. 5/5

Sounds very good and really close to the original, the CPU usage is also on a low level with Reason; depends of the setup! Thx a lot

Although it is very good, the 32 bit version does not use by VSTHOST.

Red flagged in Podium Free like no other plug in ever has. Wanted to try it versus the other OBXD, but Podium told me to exit and save everything else in a back-up file to be safe. Deemed it "quarantined". Bummer.

Just curious as to the differences from 2Dat's original version... aside from the GUI, which I like much more on this one. It is a great synth. Syncable LFO with retrigger would be a nice touch though :)

A little clicky on some sounds but overall a very beefy synth

As the web site says, use it with some fx like reverb or delay and you have a winner on your hands.

Does more than a straight Oberheim emu. Some fine sounds on this synth, you have to play with controls a bit to get the best out of it. Thanks a lot DiscoDSP. By the way we still use DiscoveryPro regularly, a mighty fine synth (not free) made by the same people.
