OB-X8 has a Fatar TP9 or TP8 keybed?

I wonder which keybed is in the OB-X8? It says »unparalleled sensitivity...«. This hints to the more expensive TP8 with 1024 velocity steps?!?

Does anybody know about this?

It will use a Fatar keybed. Here is a copy & paste from the main page @ oberheim.com

The 61-key FATAR velocity- and touch-sensitive keyboard allows unparalleled expression and responsiveness

Upon further examination, I now see that you were asking about a specific version of Fatar keybed. I have not seen anything yet.

I'm going to guess TP9 based not he new Marcus Ryle video at SuperBooth (SonicState authored) where the machine is shown up close and the black keys are glossy.  The TP8 has a more matte key.  Although there could be options from FATAR on that vibe.

The TP8 is also available with glossy black keys. So it’s really hard to tell. Is anybody from Sequential here?

Ah, OK! Then it’s the TP9 (nothing wrong with it).
