    DiscoDSP Updates OB-Xd Free Virtual Synthesizer to Version 2.0

    DiscoDSP announced that OB-Xd free virtual synthesizer based on Oberheim OB-X got a major update.

    The 2.0 update brings faster controls, an updated framework and banks, plus many more.

    OB-Xd is based on the Oberheim OB-X. It attempts to recreate its sound and behavior, but as the original was very limited in some important ways a number of things were added or altered to the original design. 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.

    What’s new in version 2.0:

    • 7x faster GUI controls.
    • Linux build.
    • Standalone app.
    • Signed and notarized installers.
    • Updated JUCE framework to 5.4.7 for better stability and compatibility.
    • Updated Banks with 2.0 compatibility.
    • Ilkka Rosma Dark Theme.
    • MacOS Catalina support.
    • MIDI CC learn.
    • MIDI CC support.
    • Parameter refactor.
    • XML based skinning and HiDPI (Retina) ready GUI themes.

    OB-Xd comes with 20 preset banks and switchable GUI themes. You can choose from different versions for Windows and macOS, including standalone software and plugins (VST/VST3, AU). There’s also an iOS app (not free, is $6.99).
