“Started using Eight Voice as soon as downloaded - it's so great to have those eight voices piled on top of each other and then edit them as a group, or smaller groups. It sounds so FAT! Great to have that zoom feature….. easy on the eye! Thanks...”

“The Eight Voice, my Final Fantasy… wow! This is just tremendous. I bought one of the first Four Voice Oberheims when it came out - it looked amazing, sounded absolutely huge, and recorded great, but it was incredibly big and a nightmare to move....”

“Eight Voice totally has that unmistakable OB warm rasp. I couldn't stop playing the pads. You can hear those classic textures from the early Prince records in there. Brilliant job capturing the nuances and vibe of such a complex instrument. Kudos!”
