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

Matrix 6R, Oberheim @ 13 June 2017, Comments Off on Oberheim Matrix 6R

“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

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

Oberheim, Xpander @ 09 May 2017, Comments Off on Oberheim Xpander

“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

DX, Oberheim @ 11 April 2017, Comments Off on Oberheim DX with Mods

dx ” Oberheim DX 1982 Drum Machine. Functional and sounds terrific. Includes all sound chips. Powers on and was cleaned out a few years ago when I rescued it from my friend’s shed. There may be some dust but no where near the decade of dirt that was there when I found it. After cleaning it powered up and I’ve been jaming with the live functions from time to time.

Haven’t ever programed any sequences (mainly because I don’t know how to) but it plays sequences programed by the past owner. Most of the switches work but not all. However you can trigger the sounds by making a connection on the underside of the circuit board so they most likely need re-soldering on the reverse side I assume. The volume sliders don’t seem to work too well but since each channel has it’s own output for studio recording, individual volume control would be a sinch when hooked up to an external mixer. Missing two slider knobs as pictured.

Fun vintage drum machine that has a legendary pedigree. New Order – Blue Monday is probably my fav but if you are looking at this I’m sure you’ve done your research.” Link

DX, Oberheim @ 04 April 2017, Comments Off on Oberheim DX

dx “For sale is my Oberheim DX which is in great shape.
As on every DX out there, the battery which drives the memory is dead and needs replacing. A new battery can be had for $12.
This never bothered me as I just make new beats each time I use it.
Besides the battery, there are two tiny issues with it, neither of which affect play-ability, and are as as follows:
The Bass and Snare sliders are a bit sticky. They both function fine with no noise, but require a little effort to get them to slide.
The bottom Crash button and the middle Shaker button sometimes double trigger when you hit them.
Again, neither of these issues affect the units functionality, and are extremely minor considering the age of the instrument
Physically, the unit is in great shape. The cheeks are wood and have some wear on them, which I tried to depict in the photos.
These things were built like tanks and have stood the test of time.
The inside is very clean and it doesn’t look like anything has been tampered with.
I have loved this DX dearly, but it is time to let it go.” Link

Matrix 1000, Oberheim @ 14 March 2017, Comments Off on Oberheim Matrix 1000

obiemxatr ” Up for sale is my one owner Oberheim Matrix 1000 synth module. I purchased this unit brand new in 1990. This unit is in perfect working order, and has only been used in my smoke-free home studio. The exterior exhibits the usual minor rack rash, along with minor scratches in the paint on the top panel. It has no significant dents or dings, and has never been dropped or otherwise subjected to any impacts. All six voices are fully functional, and just calibrated by myself. This unit has been upgraded to firmware v1.16 as shown in the photos. This fixes numerous bugs that existed in the factory ROM, most notably slow filter response via MIDI cc’s. Because of the firmware upgrade, the filters on this unit respond almost instantly. I used this as a wind synth module, and since the upgrade has been installed, the response to aftertouch and breath is exceptionally fast. If you’re an analog fan, you can’t go wrong with this unit. It contains 800 factory sounds, and has 200 user slots to store your favorites, or your own custom patches created with an external editor. Included with this unit is the power cable, the original owner’s manual and patch listing, and a manual on programming the Matrix 6/6R/1000. Don’t let this one pass you by! ”

It’s fully functional and sounds great. Screen is bright and easy to read. The volume knob is a little loose but functions as it should. Awesome vintage analog oberheim sound, the same as a Matrix 6 but in a 1U rack format. There are many different programmers out there available for this, which really can enhance its usability.

I just completed a major overhaul of the keyboard in which all the contacts were cleaned and bushings replaced. No sticky notes. The previous (original owner) had an aftermarket midi kit installed that has basic in/out/thru functionality and is solid. I’ve had zero problems with this throughout the years it’s been in my possession and has had regular maintenance service.” Link
