“Up for sale is perhaps Oberheim’s most undersung but amazing sounding monosynth. The OB-1 does not sound like a SEM, and it does not sound like one of their later polys–it has it’s own distinct sound and power that rivals any other monosynth from that era. Take the girth of an Octave Cat A-Rev. and apply some Oberheim filter flavor and you have an idea of what this sounds like.
This OB-1 is the first, and rarer, MKI version that has the very fast discrete envelopes (the later versions were grey like the OB-X and used a CEM 3310 envelope chip). It has both MIDI and the Tauntek CPU update that allows real-time editing of all parameters on saved patched, and an increased preset memory (using RAM instead of batteries). It has also been fully serviced by Bell Tone Synthworks here in Philadelphia and is ready to rock for the foreseeable future.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Purchased in 2002. Very clean condition. There is no pulse wave on VCO 2. It came that way when I bought it, so I just leave it on Triangle which sounds just great. The manual says you can vary the slope of the Triangle waves, but I have never been able to do that. You can vary the pulse wave on VCO 1. Everything else works great. Two sub oscillators to create a really fat sound, plus cross mod and sync to get some very interesting sonic explorations. These synths are quite rare and not up for sale very often. They are direct descendants of Oberheim’s SEM modules. A true piece of synthesizer history.”
