Gary Corbett: „This is the best virtual synth I have ever heard“


Tuning Section (TUNER)   Porta DET (above voice pans)

The tuning section

Like in real analog synths, VCOs, VCFs, ENVs and portamento times of each of the six voices are slightly and individually (!) detuned by default. Four buttons let you tune or again untune each of these sections individually for accuracy or analog feel, in any combination. The VCOs' detuning can be altered too with the variable spread knob which also works in polyphonic mode. This gives you a level of control you have never experienced before!

Unisono and portamento

Stack all six voices at the touch of a button. Spread the voices if not detuned already. Polyphonic(!) portamento is there too!

The modulation matrix

An lfo with sine, square and s/h lets you modulate VCOs, VCFs and pulsewidth. The mod amount button for the VCOs has an extra designed double logarithmic response in the first quarter for finest modulation control.

Crossmod, Sync and Ring Modulation

While X-Mod and Sync are available in the original, ring modulation is a special gift. Unlike in many other VA synths, the Sync sound is outstanding.

The filter    ob-x filter

The 12db SEM-based filter of the original is legendary and holds up to moog with different and unique character. One of the great things of SEM filters is that they don't lose gain or fullness at high resonance settings. This makes them sound very sweet even at high resonance settings. You won't find self oscillation here but you will never miss it. Listen to the comparisons.

Stereo voice pans

This was a popular feature within old analog synths and you won't miss it here as well! Every voice can be panned individually in the stereo field. This means real stereo and sounds fantastic! Not to mention every panpot can be fully automated...

The unique arpeggiator

One thing the real deal misses. The opx arpeggiator is specially designed. It's in fact a very intuitively handlable step sequencer. Every new played note is saved in one of six steps which are continously read out in variable speed. The number of read out steps can be varied as well.

Filterenv modulation

Again a thing the real thing misses and a speciality of prophet synths. The filter envelope can modulate notepitch and pulsewidth, positive or negative, oscillator selective or not. Great in combination with velocity control of the filter envelope.
