Minor Arsenal (Lily Jordy)

Adventurous melodic track, mixing chiptune-like drums and bassline with lush lead and pads.

Well, as both a by-nature-virtual-synth-sceptic, and an OB-Xa owner, the first thing I am required to do with any software that purports to be a clone of hardware device is to fire up said hardware device, and A/B the two. The tonality of the two are effectively indistinguishable. This is shockingly good.

The OB-Xa is one of my favourite synths ever and this plug-in definitely doesn't disappoint. Sounds and looks amazing. It makes you feel like you're surfing on a hologram in 1984

I opened the OB-Xa in trailer project I was working on and holy s...ynths does this one sound good! It went straight into this project after designing my first sound within minutes. I never owned an OB-Xa, but I was able to work and play with a bunch of different Oberheims over the years. Great to get another piece of that in software form

Full of vibrant soundscapes, vivid textures and countless variables to play with – the OB-Xa V has quickly become my new favourite Arturia toy and staple synth to use when I create.

As a big fan of Vangelis type of sounds, big synths like the OB-X are amongst my favorites. The OB-Xa is a beast for me, I’ve waited for so long to have a good emulation of the original synth. I can easily manipulate the parameters and achieve pretty big strings and arpeggio. It's a must.
