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).
