DMX, Oberheim @ 08 August 2017, “No Comments”

“Completely future proofed with modern modifications for stability and memory. Fully recapped on all voice cards and rest of machine, new voltage regulators. Brand new, Oberheim developed MIDI Kit with modern functionality. Full LM1 core sound set made so like having 2 drum machines in one. Physically in amazing condition with minor scratches and wear and tear.” Link

“Up for sale is a vintage Oberheim Matrix 6R synthesizer module. This module has great sound quality, very warm and full. The “string” patches in particular are fantastic sounding. The membrane pads all work as they should, and editing directly from the top panel instructions is not difficult. Cosmetically there are some scratches, but generally speaking it’s in very nice condition.

I’ve run through the presets and have done some basic editing to see if it works as it should (which it does), but by no means have I fully tested this unit. I’m selling it as-is. Being that it’s an older synth I can’t absolutely guarantee full functionality of all of its functions. I’m by no means a synth/keyboardist, and it’s not my area of specialty. ” Link

“This is a used 19″ rack mountable 6 voice polyphonic analog synthesizer in good condition. Only defects of note are the markings from installing and removing unit from rack. Comes with power cable and patch list (not pictured).” Link

DMX, Oberheim @ 25 July 2017, Comments Off on Oberheim DMX Project Machine

“Vintage Oberheim DMX Drum Machine. Here is the classic hit making drum machine that was the gold standard when it was introduced. This unit is NOT WORKING. Unit powers on, display first reads Oberheim DMX. Then changes to “Internal error 12, data might be bad. Press < > to empty. Case error”. When I purchased this unit many years ago, only the cymbal buttons produced sounds. I never had a chance to have it repaired, so it just sat in the corner. I just decided to clear room in my studio and sell it as is. I recently tested the unit and discovered that now no sounds are being produced at all. Internally, several voice cards are missing, and the battery is loose. All sliders and buttons are free moving and not sticky or stuck. As shown in the pictures, the case, side panels and top panel are in excellent condition, with only a few scratches on the bottom panel. Power cord is included. ” Link

DSX, DX, OB-8, Oberheim @ 25 July 2017, Comments Off on Oberheim OB8, Oberhiem DX, Oberheim DSX

“This auction is for an Oberheim system that includes an OB-8 analog synthesizer, an Oberheim DSX sequencer, and an Oberheim DX drum machine. All are in fine cosmetic and working condition. This version of the OB-8 has the page 2 features (if you ever wondered, those include things like legato portamento, equal linear time portamento, exponential portamento, invert LFO freq mod on VCO1, invert LFO pulse width modulation on VCO1, VCF tracked by pitch bend lever, and several other features). There is really nothing that sounds like an OB-8. Some of the patches on this synth are massively fat and the string sounds are to die for. This auction includes the OB-8, DSX, DX, three power cords, the 37 pin connecting cord for the DSX to OB-8, three operators manuals (one for each unit), a flight case for the OB-8, an heavy duty dust cover for the OB-8, and an “OB-8 factory stock patches” cassette dated “Jan 19, 1983.” I’ve never used or verified the contents of this cassette, but that’s what is printed on it. This is a rare opportunity to own a collection unmolested Oberheim gear from the classic era of polyphonic analog synths. ” Link

Oberheim, Xpander @ 11 July 2017, Comments Off on Oberheim Xpander

“This is an Oberheim Xpander synthesizer in great working condition. It hasn’t been used in over 20 years but was safely & carefully stored. There are some scrapes and scratches from moving around in the studio while it was being used back in the owners music days, and I have shown them all clearly in photos. Its been tested by a friend who works at a music engineering studio and everything checked out. We don’t have the original manual, and the power cable isn’t the original but it is the correct cord for the machine. I decided to leave the manual purchase up to the buyer rather than buy one and stick it with this.

It is the US made version.

It has had only one owner.

All displays are clear and work perfectly.” Link

Matrix 1000, Oberheim @ 04 July 2017, Comments Off on Oberheim Matrix 1000

“Vintage Oberheim Matrix 1000 Synth Module

Recently serviced. The following work was performed:

Battery Socket installed with new battery

New ver 1.20 firmware (designed by Bob Grieb) installed

DAC Calibration

Factory Calibration

Factory sounds restored

The battery clip will make it simple to maintain as opposed to the soldered in type battery’s which require complete disassembly and soldering to replace.

The new firmware supersedes the v1.13 which fixes the MIDI controllable parameter bugs in the original factory firmware. It also supersedes the v1.16 (by Gligli) which still has some issues and was never really finished according to the author. Bob Grieb’s v1.20 provides all of the improvements of 1.13 and 1.16 and new improvements for parameter control via MIDI. It includes his MIDI parameter speed-ups plus Gligli’s de-tune code. He also added code to display the values of the parameters as they are changed via MIDI and also the detune value. The code writes directly to the display and doesn’t tell the M1K to write over it so it holds the display of the value until the next Note On or similar message is received which will cause the display to revert back to its normal contents. It also fixed the NRPN “inc” and “dec” commands which are still broke in v1.6. ”

“OBERHEIM MATRIX 6R
Classic Rackmount 6-Voice Polyphonic Analog Synthesizer

Excellent condition! Looks and works great!

Screen is nice & bright. The battery has just been replaced. It has firmware 2.13 (the latest). Comes pre-loaded with Factory Presets Vol.3.

The front panel looks excellent. The sides have some light scratches from rackmounting. There is a small spot on the top where the paint has rubbed off, but the list of parameters is still completely readable.

Includes 3-prong power cable, and ships in original box! The box is moderately worn and has some clear tape on it, but is still a nice accessory/artifact. The Matrix 6R in the original box will ship inside an even larger outer box, well padded.” Link

Matrix 1000, Oberheim @ 13 June 2017, Comments Off on Oberheim Matrix 1000

“The classic Oberheim sound in one rack unit, absolute bliss. I’m only selling to upgrade to an Xpander. This Matrix 1000 works perfectly and is in great shape.

Please keep in mind that like many Matrix 1000’s, this unit has a hum from the power supply. It is barely noticeable when it’s mounted in a rack but when you power it up on a wooden table (like I just did to take pictures) you definitely hear it. There are solutions to this available online, but it never bothered me enough to warrant them.” Link

Oberheim, Xpander @ 13 June 2017, Comments Off on Oberheim Xpander

“If you are looking at this and you’re thinking, “Didn’t I just see this a week ago?,” you’re right. I listed it, sold it, and the dude backed out of the sale. So here we are again, so be sure you know what you are bidding on! Oberheim Xpander, 6-voice synth module, not an OB8, OBx, or any other older synth.

What is it?: If you know the ’80s you already know what an awesome, historic synth this is. If you want all the specs, I can send you them, but specs don’t translate to sound. And this thing has THE sound. I am the original owner, I bought it in the early ’80s when they were first introduced and I used on so many gigs. It was my go-to synth. I also had a Micro Moog, Prophet-5 and a DX-7, but they were never as fat as this OB. Those huge ’80s synth sounds were so iconic, and now real analog sounds are back. BTW-this one is US built (highly sought after), not Japanese, as the later models were.

Condition: It hasn’t been seriously used in about 25 years, yet all the patches still come up on demand. The internal battery that keeps the PRAM going, holding patch settings, is amazingly still working (a testament to Oberheim’s design). The internal diagnostics that tune the oscillators, filters, etc. all PASS (see video below). Lastly, it sounds awesome! Some of the switches were a little funky at first, but as I used them more and more, they became less so. Like I said, it hasn’t been played in a very long time. Almost changed my mind when I heard it again after all those years.” Link

Oberheim, Xpander @ 06 June 2017, Comments Off on Oberheim Xpander

“OBERHEIM XPANDER for auction. This unit was recently serviced by the famous analog synth repair Guru John Leimseider (JL) of the Cantos Music Foundation in Calgary Alberta Canada. This is a six voice, VCO-based synthesizer (like the Matrix-12) as opposed to its DCO-based siblings the Matrix-6 and 1000. It is in great condition and sounds wonderful. Very fat and thick as you would expect from a true analog synthesizer. The best part of this unit however, is its flexibility when it comes to programming sounds. It is very similar to a modular synthesizer in that respect. Pretty much anything can modulate anything. This unit is American made in Los Angeles, California. ”

obie1000 “This is an Oberheim Matrix 1000 pre Gibson era rackmount synth module. Unit is fully functional, the battery socket has been upgraded and battery replaced, all six voices have been tested and calibrated and are in full working order. There is some minor cosmetic damage owing to its age and some of the front panel buttons stick, but all of them work. I am including the original owners manual which is more of a reference guide. I am also including a spare CEM 3396 voice chip. This is the most commonly replaced part on these synths and are increasingly difficult to find. Also the synth’s firmware has been upgraded to Bob Greib’s 1.20 version which fixes many original bugs. ” Link

“This is a well working Oberheim Xpander. It includes the Xpander Xpansion installed by a tech a long time ago. Passes all tunings consistently and only needed very minor work (PSU).
The unit is in fair shape with minor marks on the graphics. It suffers from the same fading all Xpanders do, but it’s par for the course. ” Link
