Sequential OB-X8 Keyboard Analogue Synthesiser
Sequential OB-X8 is a Keyboard Analogue Synthesiser. For the first time in 40 years, a legendary analog synth sound returns.
Creating the classic OB sound required more than just replicating vintage oscillators, filters, and envelopes.
The Oberheim design team exhaustively analyzed and recreated the complex interactions between the various components of each OB-series synth to capture their nuances and character.
As a result, OB-X8 is the most faithful, authoritative renewal of an analog classic possible. All whilst delivering all of the warmth, subtlety, and presence of the originals.
Overall, the Sequential OB-X8 Provides
- 8-voice, pure-analog polyphony with saw, square/pulse, triangle, and noise
- Two discrete SEM/OB-X-lineage VCOs per voice deliver classic punchy Oberheim tone
- Discrete SEM-lineage VCFs deliver authentic OB-X-style tone and presence
- 61-key FATAR velocity- and touch-sensitive keyboard which allow unparalleled expression and responsiveness
Amongst many other great features.

Additionally, OB insiders know that the myriad of “Page 2” functions unlocked the hidden power of the original OB-X, OB-Xa, and OB-8.
We’ve included all of the classic Page 2 parameters and created new ones for 2022, giving you direct access to 40+ nuanced controls such as additional SEM filter modes, per-voice panning, LFO keyboard tracking, Mod delay time and envelope inversion, independent pulse width control, and much more.
OB-X8, A Tactical Triumph
What’s more, the unique design of the expression levers was integral to bringing out performances that made the OB-series famous.
And, for even greater expressiveness than the originals, the OB-X8 features a premium-quality Fatar keyboard with velocity and aftertouch sensitivity. Dig in with both hands for sizzling filter sweeps, intense vibrato, and more.
