Looks tantalizing. Is it another Behringer?

Hard to tell. They do registered OB-X trademark (as far as I remember), but I don't think they have rights to use Oberheim logo.

Looks more like a VST to me..specially the photoshopped pictures.

But there are MIDI IN and MIDI THRU labels on the upper edge. But of course it is just a model.

Oh, yeah... I've forgotten about that. Looks like we've achieved another level in simulation - realistic cable mess. ;)

You mean those fans don't actually cool the CPU down? :lol:

Sounds like Behringer has posted a disavowal of involvement in whatever it is. Starting to look like just a VST or prank, but it's certainly possible that something real is in the works. Just because it's a digital mock up doesn't mean it's not real.

I thought for sure the KingKorg and MS-20 mini were fakes.
