Re: OB12 for Berlin school music tips to make it sound vinta

Yeah Phaser is important, but just as important is probably a analog/tube pre amp, when using wavearts tube saturator, and drive it kind of hard, the ob12 sounds now very much more analog then before!... I think you have a warped idea of what analogue means. Perhaps you like the sound of that overd...

Re: My first recording with Oberheim Xpander

Is that the highpass filter on the pad? I'm borrowing an Xpander at the moment, and seems like most of the brighter sounds I get are 'cleaner' sounding than this. A pleasant multi-track improvisation, btw. Hello, I do not remember exactely, but what I remember is that I did use the presets I might ...

Re: My first recording with Oberheim Xpander

Nice work. I like the feel of this track, very epic. Thank you a lot! I will try to record more when I have received my midi cables... I have also bought the explorer editor.

Re: OB12 for Berlin school music tips to make it sound vinta

Do you want it for the stringy chord Berlins school thing or the bubbling bass thing? If the strings then running it through an analogue phaser like a small stone would do the trick; if bass then something like an MF-101 would work well.

This is my first analog/hardware synth, I have only been using software synths before... it sounds very close to Mario Schönwälder. I am just improvising, did record 4 tracks one by one. The bass, should have been recorded throug...
