Oberheim OB-X8 Patches: “Sirius” Sound Pack

Oberheim OB-X8 Patches for Ambient, Electronica and Techno

Sirius is a collection of Oberheim-OB-X8 presets, completely built from scratch. This sound pack for the OB-X8 and the OB-X8 desktop includes 56 completely new Oberheim OB-X8 patches. But instead of simply recreating patches from the 80s, the main objective of “Sirius” was to offer a preset collection best suited to electronic music like Ambient, Electronica, and Melodic Techno.
