Analogical tank from the 1978s with which we quickly spend hours on bass sounds, with 2 synchronizable VCOs. Rare with less than 650 copies, there is a grey version OB-1A. 1750 copies in total. The 6-page Oberheim OB-1 manual is typewritten (true, it can be found on the Internet), but it is not really needed in sound design, except perhaps to position the buttons to be able to record a sound on the 8 available memories (which store the positions of 33 potentiometers or buttons, almost all of them), as this cannot be invented. The OB-1 sends heavy, even if its keyboard is very cheap and makes a hell of a noise. In any case, it can be ordered with conventional CV-IN 1 volt per octave. The pinball pitch is huge. It is recommended in the instructions for use to wait 5 minutes for the circuits to be stabilized. This is clearly another way to conceive a sound, with fabulous surprises in the percussive basses, noise, boat engine noises, factory purring. Finally, no need to look for a MIDI interface on the OB-1. Source: vintage stock copy tested, service manual.

Prophet 5 Vintage
Sequential Circuit - Prophet 5 Prophet 5 Rev.2 vintage from the American brand SEQUENTIAL CIRCUITS, everything works perfectly. A very beautiful and mythical machine. Opportunity verified by Zicplace. Very good condition. Magic. Sequential Circuit's Prophet 5, created by Dave Smith, produces a fascinating analog sound in a dreamlike body with a case that combines wood and steel. Even with sounds stored as presets, which can be easily modified after calling them, you can still recognize mythical sounds from Pink Floyd albums, the intro to "One of my Turns", etc. A lot of presence, a violent Unison mode that we like to listen to and let run, just press one of the 61 keys and wait for the hair to rise on your body. The presets offer very different sounds, tablecloths, organs, basses, sound effects that we like or not, but it has become a legend with its strings and basses. There were 3 models that we spot with the serial numbers: the Rev.1 a little unstable that we don't like to have in return workshop in after-sales service, the Rev. 2 reputed to have a "better sound", and the Rev. 3. At first use, we see that it has some in the stomach with its 2 VCO, and we turn the potentiometers slightly. In Rev. 2 there is a key to tune it, and a key that outputs an A 440Hz. Funny but also necessary because analog is more unstable than digital. Requires some output effects because the vintage machine does not have them, unlike the recent Prophet 6.
