October 2, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized 

SonicProjects OP-X PRO-II software VSTi synth – the new flagship. Introduction trailer.

The soundtrack of the video trailer has been exclusively done with OP-X PRO-II and Steinberg Groove Agent for drums. No external effects or treatment (except for drums) have been used, mixing just included levels and pan. All involved sounds are factory presets of OP-X PRO-II.

According to SonicProjects, the Virtual Oberheim OB-X XPander is “the perfect dream synth”:

OP-X PRO-II is the new top flagship of the OP series and is the continuation of the development of OP-X PRO, based on many collected wishes of customers and too own new ideas, in order to make it the perfect dream synth. S

Some of the obvious new features include doubled polyphony, an included patch browser, an effects unit, midi learn and a completely new arpeggiator.

But there are also a lot a lot of hidden new features that can be accessed by active GUI zones or multiple button states. This keeps the GUI clean and familiar. Once you’ve got to know these features you’ll see that despite this density the general operation is extremely intuitive and streamlined. A bunch of new one-click quick button calibration features saves a lot of work to handle voice-based settings like tuning trimpots or pans.

All of this is based on countless hours of real working experience, to give as streamlined and intuitive handling as possible.
