New GForce Oberheim OB-1

GForce just released their Oberheim OB-1 VI. It comes with about 300 presets to get you going. I think it sounds great. The Aphex Bells preset was sweet…until I enabled Unison. Holy crap! It was like the opening bell for Ragnarök!

The initial 50% off sales price is £49 (excluding VAT). For me in France, it was £40 plus £8 for the French 20% VAT. Not bad. Until PayPal charged almost 4% for the currency exchange fee. I wound up paying 59,29 €.

That said, it sounds great, and is a nice addition to their other collaborative Oberheim synths, the OB-X and DMX. I also appreciate that GForce provides standalone versions for quick access.
