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).
