If you’re a synth head who swoons over the warm, gritty tones of classic analog hardware, Brainworx Audio’s bx_oberhausen is going to make your knees weak. This virtuoso virtual instrument doesn’t just model an acclaimed analog synth expander – it goes way beyond, injecting it with new creative possibilities while retaining every ounce of its vintage vibe.

Right off the bat, the polyphony is insane – up to 32 voices, blowing away even the priciest modern analog polysynths. This means you can create gigantic, lush pads and leads that would make the original hardware weep. But it’s not just about size; Brainworx deployed their top-secret Tolerance Modeling Technology to mimic the beloved unpredictability of genuine analog circuitry. Each voice gets its own unique variations in tone and character, just like the real deal. This subtle “slop” is what gives analog synths their incredible warmth, punch and mojo.

As if that wasn’t enough, bx_oberhausen rocks some seriously innovative features you won’t find anywhere else. The Unison mode is a total gamechanger, combining those gloriously detuned voices into an oscillator orgy of phat, trembling harmonics. And the M/S tech? It’s brilliant – sculpt your soundscape by routing parts of the signal around the resonant filter for ultimate tone-sculpting bliss.

Speaking of filters, the classic 2-pole state-variable design from the hardware is authentically recreated here, with all its chewy, vocal-like resonance. But you’re not stuck in the past – frequency modulation and a powerful mod matrix unlock entirely new realms of sound design.

While the synthesis engine is the star of the show, the effects section is no slouch either. You get shrunken-down versions of Brainworx’s acclaimed plugs like the AIR BAND, perfect for putting the finishing touches on your tones. Everything is laid out in a straightforward, modern interface that stays uncluttered without sacrificing depth.

All in all, bx_oberhausen is a true labor of love from the geniuses at Brainworx. It pays reverent homage to a legendary analog classic while breathing new life into it with jaw-dropping features and limitless sound-sculpting potential. For analog diehards, digital explorers, or anyone who demands the finest virtual instruments, it’s an utterly essential addition to your sonic arsenal.
