Hello Oberheim board,
I recently finished a song that's very OB-X heavy. I figured folks here might be interested in listening.
A few words about my OB-X. I bought it used almost 30 years ago and it's been an ongoing instrument/hobby/joy/frustration ever since. When I bought it, it was a heavily modified 8 voice with 8X32 memory, daughter boards on each voice card to allow pitch modulation of OSC2 via ENV2, and importantly it has 24dB Curtis filters so I can switch between the discrete Oberheim 12dB and the Curtis 24dB filters. It also had a 2nd lfo on the paddle section (Curtis based). It died so I built a discrete LFO and swapped it out. I think of the board as an "OB-X alpha", because its modifications almost bring it up to OB-Xa specs. X-Mod was disabled as part of the mods, but I built a daughter board to re-enable it (take that Mr. OB-Xa...).
I also modified both paddles so they can control pitch, filter freq, or both. This song takes advantage of the 2nd LFO being able to modulate both the pitch and filter freq with the left paddle. There are a few instances where it modulates very deep (paddle all the way down) and it really warps the sound beyond recognition.
Anyway, the lead is all OB-X with just a dash of delay and reverb. It uses the same basic unison patch that gets "synced" about midway through, and then finally the filter gets S/H modulated at the end.
The instrumental entitled "Evening Coats" is posted at these two sites:
