Modern Presets for Arturia OP-Xa V

Obelisk is a collection of 100 original, modern presets designed for Arturia OP-Xa V and Analog Lab V, specifically crafted for musicians and producers seeking fresh, contemporary sounds. This extensive pack is a treasure trove for Arturia OP-Xa V users, focusing on cutting-edge sound design with advanced modulation and an extensive use of creative effects. It features a wide array of sounds including lo-fi keys, ambient and evolving pads, inventive arpeggiators, and modern synthwave patches infused with a sunset-drenched vibe, perfect for those searching for Arturia OP-Xa V presets.

Drawing inspiration from the eclectic mix of artists featured in my Synth Sounds series of articles, Obelisk presents a unique sound palette that, while influenced by these artists, doesn’t replicate any specific tracks. This makes it an ideal choice for those looking to explore new sonic territories using Arturia OP-Xa V and Analog Lab V.

Arturia OB-Xa presets

OP-Xa V is Arturia’s software emulation of the legendary 1981 Oberheim OB-Xa polysynth, a competitor to iconic Sequential Prophet-5. The OB-Xa had a famously smooth sound offered by its 12dB filter and featured the ability to pan individual oscillators to create a wide, stereo sound. Arturia OP-Xa V emulates this feature set while supercharging it with modern advanced features such as additional modulation sources and vintage ‘dispersion’ controls to add analog character. OP-Xa V offers a rich and dynamic sound character that Obelisk harnesses to its full potential.

The Obelisk presets showcase Arturia OP-Xa’s versatile modulation routing that allows up to 6 LFOs to craft sounds that are not only dynamic but also rich in evolution and movement. This, combined with the synth’s high-quality effects ensures that each preset is production-ready, offering a wide range of textural possibilities right out of the box. 

Unlike my Legends pack, which focuses on vintage 80s OB-Xa sounds, Obelisk is all about modern textures. It’s a must-have for anyone looking to expand their sound library with fresh and contemporary presets for Arturia OP-Xa V and Analog Lab V. To experience the diverse range of sounds Obelisk offers, make sure to check out the available demos below.
