The flagship of the OB series, this is an 8 voice, 120 Program Oberheim OB-Xa, with Numera MIDI adapter! One of the most awesome, fattest sounding analog synthesizers of all time! The synth has been serviced with:
- Rebuilt power supply, including new capacitors, multi-turn trimmers, and beefed up bridge rectifiers
- Rebuilt voice cards, including new capacitors and multi-turn initial frequency and pulse width trimmers
- Full calibration – power supply, DAC, and voice cards
Overall good condition, with typical wear expected for its age (some scratches on the case and side panels, and a extra knob that was added for a memory expansion that is no longer installed). Due to some weirdness with the Numera MIDI adapter firmware (which replaces the stock OB-Xa firmware), autotune reports some voices as failing the autotune procedure, but they sound fine. I’ve set it so it doesn’t remove those voices from rotation. I made a short video showing the keyboard works, is in tune and some of the work we did to this keyboard:
