Earlier in the year Sequential acquired the OBX trademark. In the past few days JP30 posted an OBXa demo video on his youtube channel (some were saying that he previously did this with an original Prophet 5 ahead of the release of the rev 4). My money is on a new OB-X/Xa synth.

That's what we're all expecting.  But then there's this coincidence:

I would think that an OB-X/Xa release would be another collab effort with Tom like the OB-6, so with regard to the upcoming release many of us are hoping for, it may only mean that the synth says Oberheim on it somewhere (as opposed to just having Tom's signature).  I think that would be a good thing!
