Oberheim OB-8 Sound Review

It's always a pleasure to see a good musician playing real hardware instruments. Watching this may be very inspiring both for music composers or sound designers. Strange times, we live - everything seems packed into bytes, megabytes, maybe it's one of the reasons why current music seems so repetive ? Everyone just sits in front of souless computer and play all of these boring virtual instruments ;p

I don't know if you share the same enthusiasm as me, but watching such classic instruments from the 80' or 70' is like watching classic US cars from the 60'. Definitely this stuff has a soul :) Presented synth is Oberheim OB-8 - vintage analog synthesiser launched by Oberheim in 1983 and discontinued in 1985.

ps. I know, I'm probably biased because I was born in the 80' so almost everything created / released / published during that time, has a soul for me hehe. Including Commodore C64, presented Oberheim OB-8, Top Gun, Rambo, PacMan, Ghosts 'n Goblins, Saboteur, Green Beret ... ;D

And yes, there will be more previews like this published on VstCafe...
