OBXD is based on the OB-X synthesizer from Oberheim released in 1979. OB-X was known for its full sound and was used by 1980’s artists like Japan, Ultavox, Queen, Prince, Tangerine Dream, Nena, Rick James, Jean Marie Jarre, Eurhythmics and Van Halen (“Jump” intro).
OBXD is the work of plugin developer 2Dat and has been one of the most popular free VST released to date. It is a powerful virtual analog synthesizer emulating many of the fat and lush sounds associated with the original instrument. Included are many banks and presets from the open source community. WAM implementation by Jari Kleimola.
This WAM is available for free in Amped Studio.
