GForce-Oberheim-OB-1

GForce Software Oberheim OB-1

OK, vi har skjønt at det var noe på gang. Vi skrev nylig en artikkel om at GForce hadde lagt ut en video på Youtube om den klassiske synthen Oberheim OB-1 fra 1978.

Nå er den altså her i software-utgave: hils på GForce Oberheim OB-1. Både historien bak og promovideo for GForce finner du nedenfor. GForce OB-1 er utviklet i samarbeid med Oberheim.

GForce har benyttet de moderne mulighetene man har i dag til å gi sin nye synth noen kraftige forbedringer, fremfor «bare» å lage en hyllest til en klassiker. Her er hva de sier om dette:

Enhanced Signal Path: The OB-1 retains the authentic, rich tones of the original while benefiting from a new waveform alongside waveshape modulation, discreet level for the oscillators, sub and noise, LFO sync & retrig, Envelope looping, discreet key tracking, cross-mod, pan spread and more.
Polyphony up to 16 Voices and Unison: Unlike the monophonic original, we’ve added polyphony and mono unison.
X-Modifier: Unlocks unparalleled creative possibilities by enabling direct modulation of most parameters, transforming your sonic landscape with ease.
High Pass Filter: This addition allows for more precise control over the frequency spectrum, enabling cleaner mixes and more intricate sound design.
Chorus, Delay, and Reverb Effects: Integrated effects expand the sonic palette, allowing for lush, atmospheric, and dynamic soundscapes.
Four Versatile Macros: These provide real-time control over key parameters, enhancing expressive performance and sound customization. Macro4 can be modulated by the sequencer. This can get very creative.
Built-in Arpeggiator and Sequencer: These tools make it easy to create dynamic rhythmic and melodic patterns, adding depth and complexity to your music. The sequencer features individual step length and probability, as well as a track dedicated to sequencing Macro4.
Advanced Patch Browser: Quickly find and customize the perfect sound from a vast preset library, streamlining the creative process.

Introduksjonsprisen er £49.99, ordinær pris er £99.99. Det finnes en 7 dagers demo tilgjengelig (med litt begrenset utvalg patcher ca. 130 av 300).
