    Best keyboard bass choice

    Oberheim OB-1Published on 03/22/22 at 05:20
    I actually had two of these in the 80s. I sold one and really missed it so I bought another.

    I never had a better synth for the purpose of creating a credible, deep bass sound with punch to it. Including the Minimoog which other people seemed to love. They and most other keyboards had either a thin or a dull sound when playing bass lines. But the OB was a different animal altogether. It punched through and had a full deep sound. No other keyboard did that back in the day and from what I have tried they mostly still don't.

    The Oberheim OB-1 is a classic analog synth that has two and a half octaves in keys and has a ton of different sections for controlling your sound.  It has a non traditional pitch bender in the form of a lever, but it definitely gets the job done and is fun to play with.  The synth has all sorts of 1/4 inch connections in the back including for audio in and out and for loudness, pedals, and a gate.



    UTILIZATION

    The Oberheim OB-1 is set up pretty nicely, but if you don't have any experience with analog synths, some of the lingo used you may not understand.  However, all it takes is a little while of playing around with it to figure out what everything does.  The synth has sections …

    The Oberheim OB-1 is a classic analog synth that has two and a half octaves in keys and has a ton of different sections for controlling your sound.  It has a non traditional pitch bender in the form of a lever, but it definitely gets the job done and is fun to play with.  The synth has all sorts of 1/4 inch connections in the back including for audio in and out and for loudness, pedals, and a gate.



    UTILIZATION

    The Oberheim OB-1 is set up pretty nicely, but if you don't have any experience with analog synths, some of the lingo used you may not understand.  However, all it takes is a little while of playing around with it to figure out what everything does.  The synth has sections for pitch bending, general keyboard controls, an LFO, two VCO (voltage controlled oscillator) sections, a VCF section, and a VCA envelope.  Each has its own parameters, some of which are pretty vast and cover a lot of ground.  I don't have the manual for the Oberheim OB-1, but I would recommend having it around unless you have previous experience with analog synths.


    SOUNDS

    The sound that are possible with the Oberheim OB-1 are pretty incredible.  It is definitely a versatile instrument as it is capable of getting all sorts of synth sounds and having the two separate VCOs just adds to its versatility.  I'm really a big fan of the sounds you can get on this synth, but in all honesty since you can get so many different sounds I haven't had the time yet to hear everything this synth has to offer.  However, I've used it enough that I've heard most of the basic sounds and then some and I can definitely say that this is not only a unique instrument but is one that is truly awesome sounding as far as analog synths go.


    OVERALL OPINION

    I first used the Oberheim OB-1 about a year ago and I really have no complaints about it at all.  If you are into analog synths, the Oberheim OB-1 is one that you need to check out as it has some awesome sounds that can't be found anywhere else.  If you can find a used one of these now they aren't cheap, but if you are big into analog synths and are looking to add to your collection, the Oberheim OB-1 is definitely one that needs to considered!
