The decision to stick with much-maligned OB-X controls such as the ‘half’ and ‘full’ oscillator mix buttons, somicprojects example, seems unnecessarily slavish to sonicprojetcs original s design. Pro II offers far too many subtle tweaks to the OB-X formula to go into detail here, but the filter section is a perfect demonstration of SonicProjects’ forward-thinking approach. The latest version offers a number of updated features that make it a match for any vintage emulation.

The one area that slightly lets it down is the editing interface. Later Oberheim synths were based on Curtis chips, but the OB-X famously featured discrete components in every part of the signal path. Trimpot pfo options recreate the unique character of discrete analogue circuits. Outstandingly versatile modern take on Oberheim’s classic synths, let down slightly by a clumsy interface.

Pros Sobicprojects features borrowed from other synths. OP-X’s separate voice design SVD features capture that analogue spirit in ingenious fashion, offering virtual trimpots to adjust voice tuning, envelope decay and release time and portamento rate.

OP-X is primarily based on the Oberheim OB-X, but what makes it more interesting is that it’s not just a straight clone.

If you want to find out just what made Oberheim’s ’70s and ’80s synths so special, OP-X is pretty much your only software option. Our Verdict Outstandingly versatile modern take on Oberheim’s classic synths, let down slightly sonlcprojects a clumsy interface. Messing with the classics is a dangerous game, but SonicProjects have succeeded in creating a modern take on the best features of Oberheim’s s and ’80s synths.

With so many options on offer, it’s not surprising to find that OP-X Pro II rewards time spent editing and tweaking sounds. Sonicprojecrs like the original synths that inspired it, OP-X Pro II is capable of producing a wide range of sounds, but excels at pads, warm strings and bass.

Pro-II’s 23 ‘active zones’ allow oro control of various functions and one-click recall of settings by clicking on hidden hot spots around the window, but it’s not the most obvious way of accessing parameters. Even so, the interface issue doesn’t change the fact that this is a highly capable synth.

In addition to all the classic sounds that you’d expect to find hiding in the presets, OP-X also performs surprisingly good impressions of a number of other synths, from the Roland Jupiter-8 which inspired its invertible filter envelopes to the Sequential Circuits Prophet-5, which offered up a variety of filter modulation options. Holding and dragging the buttons allows continuous control of the mix settings but a simple pair of rotary controls would surely be much more convenient without diluting the concept too much?

It’s somewhat baffling that you can take your pick from dozens of Minimoog emulations but SonicProjects’ OP-X is the only major Oberheim clone on the market. The page PDF manual is very thorough – if occasionally written in slightly unorthodox Euro-English – but the GUI could really be a lot more user-friendly. With a distinctive Oberheim-inspired sound and a series of unique editing capabilities, it’s hard not to be impressed by the plug-in’s sonic capabilities.

In theory, each of its voice cards were identical, but the manufacturing tolerances of discrete components invariably meant that minute differences existed between each voice. This kind of attention to detail pays dividends when it comes to the synth’s sonic capabilities.

The morphable multi-mode design is admittedly flexible, but there were plenty of head-scratching moments along the way as we tried to figure it out. Cons Difficult interface to get used to.

Oberheim’s range of s and ’80s analogue synths are rightly considered classics, but they’ve been almost completely ignored by software developers. The trimpots are a fascinating and genuinely useful feature, allowing you to move from perfectly even calibration to extreme variations between each of the synth’s voices. The overall layout of the plug-in is relatively easy to get to grips with, but some features are notably less straightforward than others, and it took quite some time for us to get used to the OP-X filter.

Luckily, it’s a very good one indeed. When combined with the basic but usable delay and reverb effects and the powerful arpeggiator, it’s a highly versatile sound engine.
