Re: Look what I got! ............Macbeth M5!

Had to tell someone! I finally got a great deal on one and I've never been happier! It's the only new analog synth I've played that sounds so vintage and raw, 3 vcos, ring mod, dual lfos, dual sample/hold, random, noise, two filters, mixers, spring reverb etc. it's a beast! It's really deep and jus...

Re: Spectralis II

I"m not sure where you're getting that. He has posted as to what should be in 1.0, and there is lots of stuff. Obviously he can't change around the basic interface and workflow of the machine. But there is lots in 1.0. Whether 1.0 arrives is another matter, but you seem to be suggesting that he'll j...

Re: Spectralis II

I don't think that you have it quite right. The idea is that he is going to finish 1.0 before releasing the Spectralis 2. He's not just going to rename the OS version. How soon that will happen is anyone's guess. He pretty much said on the forum recently that they are behind schedule, so that they ...

Re: Spectralis II

I'm taking a closer look at this right now. The "Hybrid Elements" was announced by Jorg exactly 1 year ago and nothing ever materialized on that . Seems he had to show potential investors at NAMM that something was happening. Now comes the announcement about Spectralis II. I wouldn't hold my breath...

Re: How much is an Oberheim OB12 worth nowadays?

no need to act like a little nancy. as far as the OBMX, yes that is quite the Oberheim Albatross. In fact it's at the shop right now with power supply issues. Does it sound better than the OB12, yes it does... does it work well... not nearly all the time. BUT, Nancy, I never said it was the bomb......

Re: How much is an Oberheim OB12 worth nowadays?

wow! what part did you not get when i said it was MY opinion. I think it's great that you love your ob12. really, i do. I PERSONALLY think it's an overrated, overpriced synth. I don't speak out of speculation. It's first hand experience. We got stuck with tons of these because 1. the OS was way too...

Re: How much is an Oberheim OB12 worth nowadays?

yup, and some people love mandolins. fluffy puppys named chester, dandy walks on an autumn eve, etc. i just don't think it deserves the name oberheim, but that is MY opinion. h**l, a matrix 6 is beefier than the ob12, a matrix 6 is still worthy of the name. it was only 2-3 years ago these were goin...

Re: How much is an Oberheim OB12 worth nowadays?

man, it's funny. Musicians Friend was blowing those out for $699 because they could not sell these things. They were made by organ manufacturer Viscount in Italy and Tom Oberheim had nothing at all to do with it. I used to be a buyer for a music chain, we ordered a few of these. They really don't s...

Re: How much is an Oberheim OB12 worth nowadays?

It was interesting that it got that much attention, even with the OB12 being spelled with some extraneous spaces. I don't even know how I found it! Well, in some cases I figure that people might spell it in different ways - ob-12, ob 12, ob12, etc....so I just typed in Oberheim, and there it was. T...

Re: How much is an Oberheim OB12 worth nowadays?

Yeah ive noticed i don't see these for sale often either. I would like to have one down the road, do people keep em? Great looking too. I think it's one that you either love or hate, or a bit of both. I've seen them up for sale somewhat frequently recently - I think there have been a few on ebay. I...

Re: How much is an Oberheim OB12 worth nowadays?

I was lucky - I was watching that Ebay sale, which ended at $1,025. that was way higher than I was willing to spend - I've wanted to try out one of these for awhile, but given the wide disparity of opinions about it, I wanted to purchase at a price where I could recoup my expenditure if I didn't lik...

Yeah, only one multi can be saved...whatever you used last...unless they've changed that. It is one of the reasons mine is gone.
