Modern Presets for Arturia OB-Xa V

Obelisk is a collection of 100 original, modern sounds for the Arturia OB-Xa V softsynth. The collection focus on contemporary sounds with advanced modulation and heavy use of creative effects and includes lo-fi keys, ambient & evolving pads, creative arpeggiators, and sunset-drenched modern synthwave patches. 

The sounds are inspired by the artists I usually cover in my Synth Sounds series of articles, but not directly remade from any particular tracks. The Obelisk presets work exclusively with Arturia OB-Xa V and Analog Lab V. OB-Xa V is Arturia’s take on the legendary Oberheim OB-Xa synth, a powerhouse polysynth from 1981 that competed with the Sequential Prophet-5.

Arturia OB-Xa presets

The Obelisk presets make use of OB-Xa’s flexible modulation routing that allows for up to 6 LFOs to create sounds that move and evolve and it’s high-quality detailed effects to create production-ready sounds straight out of the box. Obelisk doesn’t include any ‘classic’ OB-Xa sounds – they’re covered in my Legends pack which is also for Arturia OB-Xa V. To get an idea of the sounds in Obelisk, check out the demos below.
