Insert points on their plugins would be great, not just for audio, but also for modulation.
Yes, and they have a variable filter in the FX section, but that is no replacement for having the filter available per voice as opposed to at the end of the chain. I am just thinking out loud, not really complaining.

Should be no problem in software

A little disappointed that the preset '1999' shown in the demo wasn't included.
If it's in the sales pitch, it ought to be in the product.

Guessing the C-5 Combo Organ will get you there with some adjustments.

I am one of Arturia’s sound designers,
although I wasn’t involved with the OBXa-V.
I did buy it the day it was released..so
no it wasn’t given to me free.

I think it sounds great, plenty of low end
and very analog. Not at all difficult to get
the “famous” OBX-a sounds out of it..even
if your favorite isn’t in the presets, pick a
sound that is ballpark close and you can
tweak it to get what you want, easily. Unless
you don’t care for synth programming and
just go with presets.

I also have OPX-Pro II and OBXd, and for
me, OBXa-V is much better than either one
of them.

Well, that's interesting. I've been waiting on opinions of the Arturia vs Op-x pro II.

Well, there is. Stuff like Samplerobot to turn all your hardware synths into vsti.

Arturia had great timing. The Prince Youtube channel had released an old 1985 concert ten days earlier. (I don't see a point in providing a link, since they stated that it will only be available through the end of May).

The concert inspired an interest in finding an OB-X plugin and Arturia delivered. Great products, manuals, consistency between synth plugins and support.

Looking forward to the OBXa-V being integrated into Analog Lab and maybe a dedicated Prince sound bank? Enlisting some of the members of The Revolution for programming?
