discoDSP has updated its “must-have” free Oberheim OB-X Synthesizer plugin emulation OB-Xd to version 2.0 with new features, improvements & bug fixes.
OB-Xd is a free Synthesize plugin that emulates the famous Oberheim OB-X analog polysynth. Initially published by 2Dat and Soshi Studio, the complete support was taken over by discoDSP some time ago. Since then there have been many updates including many improvements and a commercial iOS version with AUv3 support.
After spending a lot of time in the iOS version, the development of the plugin version has continued in the last few weeks. The new OB-Xd 2.0 brings a faster GUI, a standalone app, MIDI CC support as well as a Linux build. In addition to this, there are numerous small improvements that make the plugin more stable and future-proof.
As a reminder: OB-Xd is based on the Oberheim OB-X poly analog Synthesizer. It attempts to recreate its sounds and behavior. Compared to the original synth, the plugin offers several new features and improvements. It offers continuous blendable multimode filter (HP-Notch(BP) – HP in 12dB mode and 4-1 pole in 24dB mode).
