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.
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?
