    Oberheim Matrix-1000 - "WARM. HUGE. ANALOG. My new ambient pad, brass & string machine!" has images

    01/27/19

    I bought the Matrix 1000 in black one week ago as a counterpart for my beloved Juno 60. And this 6 voice polyphonic rack synthesizer sounds really analog and wide , even without FX. I really love the overall warm sound, it is the opposite of some har…

    The Oberheim OB-8 is an analog synth in Oberheim's classic line of synthesizers.  The keyboard of the synth spans about four and a half octaves, which is pretty big for a synth of this nature.  The synth is polyphonic up to eight voices and has 1/4 i…

    Oberheim OB-8 - mooseherman's review

    05/21/09

    This analog synth is arguably the best synth I've ever played in my life. More versatile than most synths of its ilk, it's got some of the richest tones that I've ever heard come out of an electronic instrument. It's an eight-voice polyphonic synthes…

    Oberheim Matrix-1000 - FP User's review

    10/31/08

    Completely agree with the previous opinions. I also regret the absence of the cable attachment point for the transformer, even if the connection is strong enough, the pro week is very light it is easy to remove by mishandling. UTILIZATION Super…
