My favorite of the early 80s CEM-based polyphonics. majestic tone with angry attitude.
Best of the early 80s, Curtis chip -based polyphonics i.e. utlizing the famous 33x0 serie chips.
love using it for sizzley buzzy cem pads/strings, voxy high resonance dark pads. it limited but sounds bigger than life. 12dB filter is its characteristic trademark tone. 24dB setting is not bad but i don't use it as often.
Great Vintage Board - Does not grow old well
My dream keyboard has become a boat anchor. Although this was a powerhouse from the 80s, it does not age well. There are numerous analog semis on the main board as well as the voice cards and they simply drift out of range over time. Since these are unique parts, replacements are sketchy and hard to find. My OB-Xa has reduced itself to a door stop.
