I was playing around with my OB-X and recorded what some of the presets sounded like through some reverb and delay.

I started wanting an Obie as a result of Bill Wolfer's post. This post isn't helping my synth lust.

Any specific reverb and delay? It sounds quite nice. God bless the Obie resonant sound, nothing even comes close.

Reverb from my mackie DFX-12 and delay from my Line 6 DD4.

Cool demo! I have a DFX-12 and don't really like the internal effects so I bought a TC Electronic M350 processor which didn't really do much better quite honestly...

There are just NO Oberheim synths for sale where I live. I would pay for it!

Thanks for posting that demo, hfinn :D

I simply love the fat and organic sound of them old Obies.

Simply magic!

How come 30 years later nothing sounds better or has more character

Ahh, I so envy you! So is it the 4, 6, or 8 voice? Great demo, most of it was very melodic and relaxing. You should consider producing a line of stress reliever CD's. :)

For some reason I was expecting you to go into a "Jump" number. :P

So lucky! Did you get it when it was new? It looks to be in excellent shape.
