GForce Software Oberheim OB-E v2.1.1 WiN/MAC [MORiA] screenshot
MORiA | August, 5 | AU | VST | VST3 | STANDALONE | AAX | 139.06 MB
THE OB-E – AN OBERHEIM OCTAPHONIC SONIC ADVENTURE The Oberheim OB-E is our take on the legendary Oberheim® 8-Voice and the first software instrument ever to receive Tom Oberheim’s personal endorsement. More than just an emulation, the OB-E offers a unique musical experience. Sounding HUGE, it takes the iconic Synthesizer Expander Module (SEM®) based 8-Voice (a.k.a the EVS) into new sonic territory via a raft of enhancements and additions.
The concept of the 8-Voice is actually very simple; based around a single SEM containing two VCOs with Pulse and Sawtooth waveforms, two ADS Envelope Generators, one LFO, and a magical Multi-Mode Filter. In isolation each SEM is monophonic, but in the 8-Voice, because there are eight SEMs triggered by a polyphonic keyboard, you have a superb eight note polyphonic synthesizer.
This unique Octaphonic architecture offers fresh and exciting creative possibilities to music producers, composers and sound designers for the first time in the digital realm.

We’ve painstakingly emulated every section of the synth to ensure sonic authenticity while adding the convenience of software control over those eight SEMs. Mono, Mono Legato, Poly, Unison and Split keyboard modes are all available. Add to this the new VCO3, doubling as an audio rate LFO for each SEM, and a stack of additional performance controls via velocity, polyphonic after-touch and MPE control then you’ll begin to understand the depth of musical possibilities OB-E provides.


As we neared the release of OB-E®, we were contacted by Tom Oberheim and Marcus Ryle (an Oberheim engineer in the 1980s) who were impressed enough to suggest a collaboration offering support to refine OB-E and to release the v2 update carrying their full endorsement. Despite receiving several Best Soft Synth 2021 awards, working under the guidance of Tom and Marcus, we further enhanced the already incredible sounding OB-E. Refining the Detune feature and adding a new Vintage control, dials in more realistic musical inaccuracies in line with the original instrument for a truly authentic 8-Voice experience.

The enhanced OB-E V2 is a pin sharp emulation of the Oberheim® 8-Voice thanks to the new Vintage control and a highly refined Detune parameter. In addition, it’s now available for both macOS and Windows.
OB-E V2 features a new reverb, 100+ new Patches (bringing the total to over 700), a new Zoom function for the sequencer along with a crazy new Drum Mode enabling each SEM to be triggered by a dedicated key. We’ve also added 10 drum kit Presets to get you started. If you are looking for a new analog drum machine, give it a go, it might surprise you.

(Win) just download from home and use old r2r kg

nice move

Are you saying window users should not download this here? They should download it from "home" ? (official home page for this vst??) and use the old keygen from the earlier release?
  Member 27.10.2021 46
No, it's simply an option. Some prefer pre-cracked for convenience (though sometimes this can backfire, I've found older precracked DLLs that crash or fail to load so it was done badly), some prefer kg as it doesnt rely on crack and often still viable between updates (until protection changes)

Mate, this is less than 200 mb.
Are you using a 56k modem?

Thnx for the release.

If anyone is interested; it does work on Win7 despite minimum requirements stating Win10.

After loading the plugin there was a register pop up window so I entered the same password needed to access the download page so I guess it would have worked even if I pressed Register with empty field.

Factory patches do not use mod wheel? Am I missing something?
Is there a way to turn it on globally instead of reprogramming patches one by one?
  Member 22.10.2021 13
Thanks for a great synth. A question, does anyone have "trouble" using the sequence presets? Doesn't respond to Midi when playing, but works when "drawing" midi notes to FLstudio and Reaper and replaying them.

The sequencer only works when the DAW's transport is running, it's mildly annoying, but it's not the only synth out there that does this.
  Member 27.01.2020 48
Sounds awesome but that blurry interface with tiny unreadable text is horrible. Seems like something from Windows 3.11 era. Not very welcoming to do sound design with it.
  Resident 4.06.2022 31
it still looks like that with no option? it sounds good but working like that isnt. oh well.

I needed a magnifying glass just to find the resize key, but you weren't kidding about the sound. It really sounds great.
  Member 18.08.2020 82
Thanks MORiA for the update.
This synth is really something special.
Surely this is the most realistic analog synth plugin in existence?
I've never played around with the original synth but how it compares isn't a concern to me. I just know what I like when I hear it and this makes me salivate.
The presets are REALLY good.
Is the sem coming GForce too I wonder?

Most of the SEM's functionality is contained in this one. You can "emulate" 1 SEM with OB-E. I said most of the functionality because I remember a KVR thread I read when OB-E got released and some people were moaning about having to buy SEM even though they have OB-E because they liked SEM, too. Unfortunately I can't remember what's the difference, but it wasn't anything earth-shattering.

The two simple to use 32 step input sequencers perhaps?

Hi Friends ! how to validate on mac? It's the first time I've installed it.
  Resident 10.12.2008 6 771
Just install or use an old KG

thanks I'll try

Thanks friends, it worked. I used the keygen from the previous version. Thank you so much for this knowledge sharing space.

You didn't need to though. Your question was answered with an alternative answer. This release works fine.

this is certainly one of the best sounding soft synths I ever used in my life
be kind :)

Where is the old keygen?
  Resident 10.12.2008 6 771
Search on site the 2.0 or 2.0.1

quote by orchestronWhere is the old keygen?

Well, the only keygen was from R2R when they first touched 2.0.1 after MORiA had already done 2.00 and 2.0.1
So you need the R2R 2.0.1 release that is here.
Has the True RSA Keygen.

Website says it's actually gone up to macOS 10.12.X now, not 10.11 as written above.
Most of us are there or beyond, anyway. No biggie. Yet.
