I have an ob-x and somewhere I have a .wav file that contains the original factory presets.
Also, I have a hard copy of the original factory presets for the OB-Xa. My OB-X has many mods (inc lots of memory) so I manually programmed all of the OB-Xa sounds in to my OB-X by hand.
Of note - I found BOTH these items for free just by searching the internet. Please just try searching and if you can't find the .wav I will try to track it down and e-mail it.
Unfortunately, my cassette interface no longer works so I can't just dump my patches to a .wav and send them to you...sorry. (I replaced all the ICs in the modem, but it still does not work properly, so it must be a bad cap, and I just can't track it down...)
The .wav file was on my laptop three computers ago and I couldn't find it on my current machine or backup drive....please search
you will need these:

I recently acquired a four voice Oberheim OB-X and thought I'd join the
group. I've wanted an OB-X ever since I heard one used on Killing
Joke's "Night Time" album, and it's only taken me eighteen years to
fulfil that dream! I did have the opportunity to buy an OB-Xa
several years ago (allegedly, it was once owned by Lol Tolhurst of The
Cure), but passed it up in the hope of one day finding an OB-X.
Anyway, my main reason for posting is to ask if anyone can provide a
WAV file or similar of the factory patches. My Obie was completely
overhauled before I received it, erasing the patches. I'm having a
great time programming my own sounds, but I'd like to hear what the
original patches sounded like, and have the opportunity to use them as
the basis for further programming.
