    If you are a fan of the eighties, then you have probably heard thousands of hits made with an OBXa.
    This guy makes the most incredible emulation of this wonderful synth...the OPX Pro II by SonicProjects
    just hear all the demos on youtube...

    This thing is a truly excellent Oberheim emulation. I use it quite often myself and it's something that I highly recommend. Perfect time to support the developer. :grooves:

    Hi freefeet12,

    I know what you mean.
    Major drama recording on the Mac.

    My Dad owns this plugin and was not happy that there was no real Audiounit plugin or plugin for Pro Tools.
    Apparently the sonic projects guys is working on it now.
    Let's see, great sounding synth though :wink:

    It's a great synth, but unfortunately no 64-bit VST (only x86, must be bridged) :dunno:

    Another nice Oberheim OB-X emulation here, named OBXD, freeware, available as both x64 and x86 VST, for Windows and Mac.

    I agree!
    Only ONE missing feature: response to MIDI Program Change messages! selecting preset (when using it for live performance) is a real pain! Hope will be fixed.

    Thanks krismiller1982 ! I don't know about this product from Aly James Las, but OBXterme is 32-bit VST only (jBridge or internal bridge are required for x64 DAWs). Waiting for next version!

    Exactly like VLINN v2.0 (now both x86/x64 VSTi), v1.0 was only x86 VSTi... As indicated at the bottom of page: OBXtreme will be ported to Native x64 and OSX in the future.

    Upgrades from AJL aren't free (and not cheap for donationware concept): I'm VLINN legit user, I've paid 20 euros for v1.0 + 25 euros for v2.0 update...

    And the worse: no demo/eval version to try "the beast"...

    The Mac version for Reaktor 5 sounds okay, but some of the presets seem like they're messed up or flat-out missing. As for them porting the actual plug to Mac "in the future", that's been on their site for years now.
