Oberheim OB-8

Regular price $7,500.00
This vintage OB-8 is fully functional and in good condition. This OB-8 has been fully serviced has factory MIDI.

The OB-8 is fully programmable and loaded with powerful analog sound. Dedicated knobs, sliders, and a traditional layout make programming easy and hands-on. Each individual voice can be de-tuned for a very massive sound. Syncable VCOs and a nice arpeggiator are also available. It has a switchable 2 or 4-pole VCF (filter) with ADSR. Many LFO modulation controls and effects are possible. The OB-8 also introduced a second layer of programming functions - hit the "Page 2" button and all front panel controls were assigned to an entire second set of parameters!
