NAMM 2016: Dave Smith Instruments Announces OB-6 Polyphonic Analogue Synthesizer
If you're a synth connoisseur, Tom Oberheim and Dave Smith are two names that will certainly ring a bell. Together, these legends have developed the OB-6, and what better time to present a new polyphonic analogue synthesizer to the public than NAMM?
A plethora of controls
If you're a fan of hands-on control, the OB-6 with its wide range of knobs and buttons is a dream come true. Creating and editing sounds is a quick and easy process, and once you're done you can store your results as one of 500 user presets. That's plenty of room to work with!
The OB-6 is an analogue beast, and there's even a true bypass option for the DSP. With two VCOs, a sub octave VCO and noise, you'll be able to produce all the sound you need. The synth's 12dB filter, meanwhile, offers plenty of options: LPF, BPF, HPF and notch, including an ADSR envelope. For more details and specifications on this 6-voice polyphonic synth, make sure to check out the product page.
Sound is a synthesizer's most important characteristic - that goes without saying - but a little treat for the eye can't hurt either. Fortunately, the OB-6 has a gloriously retro layout with buttons and knobs that seem to have come straight from the eighties. A set of wooden side panels completes the picture.
Dave Smith Instruments has done it again - get ready to take the hammer to your piggy bank. Keep an eye on the product page for up-to-date information on availability and pricing, and you might end up with an OB-6 in your studio!
