“I’m selling my Oberheim Matrix 6R analog rack mount synthesizer. Everything works and it sounds great.

it’s been in my rack for years and years and has never left my studio.

There is a scratch / swipe across the left front side of the unit. I bought it that way and it is only a cosmetic flaw. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

DX, Oberheim @ 11 September 2018, “No Comments”

“In great working condition vintage Oberheim DX drum machine, everything on it works all buttons,outputs and faders no doble triggering issues. The pitch knobs are located in the back unlike the DMX which has to be open every time you want to change pitch on the voices. There are some scratches on the side panels and a cpl of scuff marks on the front but overall in great working condition for it’s age. This is the early edition dx so it doesn’t have the midi option, includes original power supply and hard to find original manual..” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Matrix 1000, Oberheim @ 28 August 2018, Comments Off on Oberheim Matrix 1000

“This Matrix-1000 synth module is 100% functional and it sounds wonderful.
All switches, pots, jacks, and LED display work exactly as they should.
Cosmetically, it is in outstanding shape as the pictures show. There may be a couple of barely visible scratches, but that’s it.
This Matrix-1000 interfaces with my Korg Triton via MIDI. Depending upon the patch, it responds to both keyboard velocity and aftertouch.
I have used my personal computer, MIDI-OX, and a windows-based librarian to download and modify patches. I have never experienced any problems.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This auction is for an Oberheim DX drum machine. This unit has sat in my closet for 15-20 years. It does power up. However it come up with a CASS error on the display. Talking with someone who works on these it may just be a battery. I cannot confirm this. The symbol prom needs replacing, it makes a car crash sound and has done so since I bought it. It is around 40 years old, needs cleaning and has stickers on it along with missing a slider knob. Comes with power cord. Unit is sold AS-IS.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

FVS-1, Oberheim @ 07 August 2018, Comments Off on Oberheim FVS-1

“Up for sale is my Obie four voice FVS-1 polyphonic synth ca.1976. I’ve owned this for about eight years, and it was serviced in 2011:

Keybed was completely disassembled, cleaned, keys polished out, new bushings and leveled. This is the silkiest Pratt-Read you will ever lay hands on!
Power supply recapped, and all tantalum decoupling caps throughout were replaced with high quality electrolytics
All open frame pots, jacks and trimmers cleaned
Entire unit cleaned inside and out, and tolex was touched up (lid is a bit rough, but lived in storage; still some scuffs visible on base, but very presentable overall)
Several chip replacements. Some preemptive (LM324 CV buffers in the programmer) and some to resolve faults (CMOS in keyboard controller). Quality machined pin sockets were installed
Amber LEDs installed throughout (just because…)
It had two holes in the top rail of the case, and I repurposed those with mini toggles to control routing of s/h and filter mod from external MS-1a (not included). One hole on rear patch panel was plugged

All functions work great, with only exception being the patch memories – VCO tuning across the SEMs is not consistent when a patch is recalled (tuning is fine under manual operation). I never got this addressed, as I tend to not use the patch storage. The memory is pretty useless on the FVS anyway, as modulation/switch settings cannot be stored with the patch. All other functions of the programmer work perfectly (e.g. global envelopes, global quantized VCO tuning, global filter controls, LFO, etc.; the real value of the programmer module IMO). The master volume pot is a bit scratchy (sealed pot; could not clean). A few of the plastic caps on the VCO fine tuners are missing, as are two mounting screws on SEM #4’s front panel.

The good news is that other than the minor nit-picks above, the synth sounds and plays outstanding! Having four SEMs under polyphonic control is a mind blower. I will miss this synth dearly, and I’m sure I will kick myself later. I just don’t have the time to give this the use it deserves these days, and hope to find it a good home.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Matrix 6R, Oberheim @ 31 July 2018, Comments Off on Oberheim Matrix 6R

“This Matrix 6R is great, I hate to part with it. Compared to any new Dave Smith Instrument this blows them away in my opinion in terms of fatness and tone. They really don’t make them like they used to. Get that creamy Oberheim sound on a budget with this highly underrated synth. This has lived happily in my smoke free studio, aside from some rack rash and a slight knick here and there its a great rack synth and won’t disappoint.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Oberheim, Xpander @ 31 July 2018, Comments Off on Oberheim Xpander

“Selling my beloved Xpander as I am moving studios and need to drastically downsize.

It is a wildly flexible and lush instrument, going from Steve Roach to Nine Inch Nails and everywhere in between.

It has 5 LFOs and 5 ADSRs per voice and a computer controlled patching system that has clearly influenced just about every semi modular VA ever made, hardware or software. In terms of modulation and multi-timbrality it can do very interesting things. I like the sound of all the filter types and the oscillators. It is a beautiful sounding instrument.

The Xpander has worked great for me, and it passes the tuning/servicing test for all voices. Please refer to the images.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Oberheim, Xpander @ 24 July 2018, Comments Off on Oberheim Xpander

“Here is a chance to own a true analog beast and a highly collectible and sought-after piece of synthesizer history.

This US manufactured version of the Oberheim Xpander (far superior in build and component quality to the later Japanese ones) is in full working order and been in a smoke free studio with good temperatures in my ownership since 2015.The only evident defect is that the front panel is slightly faded with age (see photos). ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Vintage Oberhiem DX Drum Machine all functions, buttons, and sliders tested great. With power cord, full manual is downloadable for free online. I’m not sure about any expansion roms, but it seems that there are some extra chips and possible board enhancements through comparison with pictures of other units. The “DX sync-to-tape” board for instance is not inside any other unit I could find pictures of online. That’s not to say it wasn’t factory standard, i just don’t know if it was or not.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

OB-8, Oberheim @ 17 July 2018, Comments Off on Oberheim OB-8

“This is an early model Oberheim OB-8 analog synthesizer from late 1982 and “Does Not” have factory MIDI. It has a small dent in the rear of the unit shown in the photos. Program 5 led is slightly brighter than the rest, one of the reasons for the lower price point. It looks like it was replaced before I owned the unit. I have it for almost 10 years and never had any issues. The same led comes on very dim when program 1 is pressed, please see the power on photo, it is hardly noticeable. My studio is well lit and always thought it was because the led was newer. All the programs work great! I do not ship internationally and only ship to the lower 48 states. If you have any questions please contact me. I will consider any reasonable offer. Get it while you can! Somebody “will” get this big boy if the price is right! They are selling for over $4k and the MIDI kit is cheap if you want to upgrade. I never had the need to use MIDI. It’s a super performance and recording keyboard, especially if you like Rush and Van Halen or other groups that used this type of keyboard!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Matrix 6, Oberheim @ 10 July 2018, Comments Off on Oberheim Matrix 6

“Used Oberheim Matrix 6 keyboard with the following included: power cord, foot pedal, manual, sound patches cassette, some midi cables and travel case. The unit will be shipped in the travel case along with all of the mentioned items in the case front pocket.

I tested the unit and all buttons are in working order. All output jacks are working. All keys (black and white) are working. Both shifters are working. Volume control is working. Did not get to test the MIDI jacks.

Due to the age of the keyboard, I must disclose the following items.

•The display is not working properly. I did some research and I believe that a battery may need replacing.

•Minimal body scuffs but there is one dent in the corner top of the keyboard. Does not effect the play of the keyboard.

•And finally, the foot pedal does not work properly. Not sure if it is the pedal or the jack. It may be a setting on the keyboard that controls the foot pedal but with the display not working properly, I could not figure it out. The foot pedal is sold as.”

OB-8, Oberheim @ 19 June 2018, Comments Off on Oberheim OB-8

“This is an early model Oberheim OB-8 analog synthesizer and does not have factory MIDI. The unit is in excellent functional shape. It has a small dent in the rear of the unit shown in the photos. I’ve never had any issues with the presence of this dent. I purchased the unit with this issue and the previous seller did not have issues either. I have replaced the entire keybed with new contacts and thoroughly cleaned the unit. The volume knob sometimes has a slightly scratchiness only while turning when not in use for a while which is normal for its age. All buttons and knobs work as far as I can tell. It has all the original patches as far as I know. There is nothing like the sound of an OB-8! I have purchased many newer analog synthesizers and just don’t have room for this monster. It has a lovely warm 80’s sound! I “Do Not Ship Internationally” and only ship to the lower 48 states, Please No Inquiries. The unit is being shipped “As Is” because of its age. The unit has many internal boards that have not been removed so it should be fine to ship.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Oberheim, Strummer @ 19 June 2018, Comments Off on Oberheim Strummer

“Tracking down vintage gear? I’ve had this in my closet boxed and now putting it on eBay. The “Strummer” listens to chords played on your MIDI keyboard and plays them back to your MIDI sound source (Synthesizer or Sampler) just as they would be played from a guitar. Not only will the chord voicings be correct, but the chords can actually be “Strummed!” With the “Strummer,” you can even change the speed and direction of your “Strums” just by changing the way you play your MIDI keyboard. Also, “Strummer” has the ability to distinguish the difference between chords and single notes, allowing you to send chords out on one MIDI channel (Distorted Guitar Sound for example) while your single notes are sent out on a different channel (i.e. Solo Sound). Your keyboard may have a great guitar sound, but can you play a great guitar part? Yes. The Oberheim Strummer will transform your keyboard playing into a stunning and convincing performance featuring realistic guitar articulation. It comes in the original Oberheim box with manual and ac adaptor.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This Oberheim Matrix 1000 was fully functional until someone had it for a few weeks and did something to it. It will not start up now. The fuse looks good and didn’t blow but it shows no display activity now. All six voices and all functions worked prior to shut-down. It may be the power supply, or regulators, or display, or something else. Since I haven’t got the equipment or expertise for the task, it must go. No returns. The six narrow CEM3396 chips are all present. See pics. Includes power cable, fuse, screws, and the synthesizer as shown. Heavily double-boxed for travel.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Matrix 12, Oberheim @ 29 May 2018, Comments Off on Oberheim Matrix 12 Project Machine

“Up for auction is a vintage Oberheim Matrix 12 synthesizer. Unit has a few bumps, marks, and scrapes cosmetically, and one key is broken. Functionally I have provided two links to videos below to demonstrate that the synthesizer powers up and all keys and controls function, however it does not operate correctly. My original plan was to get this instrument properly serviced and have any issues repaired, however I have found no one in my area worthy of the task. Therefore, instead of paying to ship the unit back and forth to a proper technician, I am offering it as is, just to test the waters. The tuning sometimes passes and sometimes fails but usually fails across the board. Occasionally, as demonstrated in the videos, I can get some functionality out of the default patch upon startup, but usually just garbage sounds. From my research the issue could be as simple as replacing the power cable input, which I will do if this auction ends without a sale, as the part is available and inexpensive. I am aware my opening price is high, but there is no reserve. The question is, how bad do YOU want what has been called by many the baddest analog synthesizer ever made?! This one is available and ready for you to refresh and make your own 🙂 ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
