The OB-X8 keyboard has been universally acclaimed for bringing Oberheim's classic tone to a whole new generation. And now, all of its sounds, synthesis features, and top panel controls are available in a compact package that will fit everyone’s creative space.

For the first time ever, the new OB-X8 desktop version condenses all the sonic power of the Oberheim OB-X, OB-Xa and OB-8 into a footprint that's compact enough for studios of any size, and convenient enough to take out on the road.

“The original OB synths were jam-packed with components and took up a lot of space. There was no way you could contemplate getting even a four-voice version of that sound out of a desktop or rack-mount unit,” mused Tom Oberheim.

“Well, here we are in 2023: eight voices of our amazing OB-X8 three-in-one synthesizer now comes in a size that fits your studio.”
