UVI has released OB Legacy. This is what they have to say about it...
One of the most prolific figures in synthesizer history is the maverick engineer and designer Tom Oberheim. His efforts can be heard across hundreds of albums, decades of pioneering instrument designs, and experienced through conveniences we take for granted on a daily basis including preset memory and MIDI. His influence is as great as any and his designs have stood the test of time better than most, with models in production today that have changed little in over 40 years. The sound of his instruments is distinct and inherently musical, with a character that's often described as "lush" and "massive", and rightly so.
Creating a suite of instruments that does justice to this legacy presented the greatest challenge of all; too much good stuff. We started with a list of our favorite synths, and after tracking them down (not an easy thing in some cases!) we spent hundreds of hours exploring their unique sonic qualities and hand-crafting new sounds for you to experience. The result is 1,468 presets built on 49,252 samples, all recorded from the actual hardware instruments - giving you the very best of what these instruments have to offer in the convenience of modern software.
All sounds in OB Legacy are fully editable and come neatly wrapped in hardware-inspired interfaces, giving you the real feel of the synths as you tweak and perform. Included presets cover the full gamut of types and styles, including plenty of bread and butter patches, vintage classics and modern staples. Quickly browse through categories, audition presets, then edit, layer and even completely transform sounds to suite your needs, all with the genuine warmth, character and grit of real analog circuits.
