  • Love this thing!

    by Stephen Bentley
    This synth has so much great character (in the best sense) when TMT is switched on. For the first time in a plugin it 100% feels like I'm playing an analogue synth. I also own Omnisphere, which comes very close, and also Diva nearly gets there when 4x oversampled (using Metaplugin), but still, no other soft synth I've tried manages to sound this real.
  • Oberhausen such a great emulation

    Only one word for such a great emulations, GREAT, and many more modern option added to bring analog sound big and transparent
  • Awesome

    I had an OB-6 for a while, and while it sounded amazing, I let it go, because it was a lot of money to tie up in not much functionality.
    So this plugin is very exciting, because to my ears it sounds shockingly Oberheimish, with all that trademark fizz and chimey piano-like tone that I’ve missed since selling the hardware. The mid/side filtering thing is a nice touch that really opens up some new frontiers in fitting a big stereo patch into the mix.
    This thing absolutely has five-star sound, but the reason I’ve taken one star away is that it lacks something I think is a must: a random/S&H LFO. With all the crazy LFO curves included, this seems like a glaring oversight to me. That said, it might not be important to the next person, and I wouldn’t let it stop me from buying this thing if I were you.

    I lost my 1981 Roland JP-8 synth in a Florida hurricane back in 1995. Though I never had the opportunity to own or use an Oberheim synth back in the early '80s, the bx_oberhausen reminds me a lot of the amazing vibe of my old JP-8. And even though I've only been exploring it for a few hours, I can tell this will become one of my favorite soft synths. It really feels like a top-tier analog synth to me -- so I'm very pleased. Many thanks to the team that worked on this. And, by the way, I wouldn't complain if you decided to tackle creating a Roland JP-8 soft synth in the not-too-distant future!
  • Wow

    by P Bond
    Maybe the most analog sounding synth plugin I've ever heard. Beautifully organic.
  • Great addition to my studio!

    by Tom Peterson (
    Great sounding emulation of the original monster! The unison mode is a magnificent addition, and the integrated effects sound great to! Presets by airwave and plugin-guru, what do you want more?
    Ok one thing would be great, a TMT slider to adjust the amount of variation allowed.
  • BX Oberhousen

    by Hexfix93
    Where does it shine? When you push it, 8 voice unison, with filter sweeps, the way the filter breaks up, no other VST sounds this good doing this. The resonance is spot on, and the shimmer and harmonics are all there. This reminds my of the ob6 and jupiter 8, but in plugin form. Very impressed, and the arturia version doesnt even come close on extreme sounds.
  • Gorgeous

    Oberhausen shows PA's modelling tech really translates perfectly to synths... the unison mode with TMT enabled per voice sounds absolutely massive and the filters on this thing are pure magic.
