OB-Mx is a truly amazing synth! If you find one, grab it. They're becoming hard to find these days. If you can find one with 12 voices, you're in for a real treat! I guess, Don Buchla's magic touch is unbeatable, and it shows!! I'll soon put some of my tracks that feature 12-voice OB-Mx on

I have had the chance to try one out at the music store I work in and I´ve been through the JP8, monopoly, polysix, ms10 blah blah but this beast have little or no comparison to the ones mentioned.

It´s unbeliveably funny to program sounds and it sound soooo fat and warm, one of the best no doubt.

When I purchased the OBMX back in '96, I thought it was overpriced for the amount of voices available (£1700.00 approx) until I compared it to what else was available, Awsome machine! Shame it's not supported anymore. I have a two voice unit(can't get voice cards!)which recently stopped responding to MIDI-IN, only to find (without anyones help - no support) that it was the internal back-up battery that needed changing (standard 3V lithium - CR2502!), then hey presto .... MIDI IN !

I have an OB-Mx and it outshines nearly ALL of my old keyboards. Plus, it has a REAL, not modelled or sampled, analog sound - this is a big difference to those who care. With a few exceptions to it's design, it has INCREDIBLE power and flexibility. I am having a BALL programming it; it's actually fairly easy. It does Jupiter 8/Polymoog-style chorusey pads very well. It does the fat modular bass tones great, and has a variety and randomness per part that can only be done on the troublesome Oberheim 4 and 8 voice. Plenty of complicated routings, but sounds world better than the Matrix 12/Expanders. Not perfect, but the kind of synth EVERYONE should be buying. * Would love to trade patches/ideas with other owners. Brian Kehew
